This is a continuation of the theme of Mindfulness. In this talk we examine how the self-absorption of the ‘selfie’ addict is a 180-degrees from true Mindfulness. Mindfulness contributes to the awakening of the foundational experience and realization, that the body I am currently using, is not actually me. Neither is the mind. I am the eternal spiritual being who is occupying the body and who should be in control of the mind.
When we shift away from this foundational truth, it results in a loss of control of our life. We simply become victims of endless desire, insecurities and unhappiness. Whereas the awakening of this realization, results in us being in control of our life and the direction we are heading. This is real empowerment.
Sorry about the audio quality – we had a bit of a technical fail while recording.
