Feel into the following five quotations from various teachers.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” ~ Rumi
“A human being is part of the whole we call the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This illusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only the few people nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison, by widening our circle of compassion, to embrace all living beings and all of nature.” Albert Einstein
“We have reversed reality and illusion. Reality is the recognition of our immortality, divinity, and timelessness. Illusion is our transient three-dimensional world. This reversal is causing us great pain.” Brian Weiss – Author of Many Lives Many Masters
“The world of illusion was appropriate for you when you were spiritual children, but when you seek to know the Truth and enter Reality, you begin to function as spiritual adults. The Truth may not always be easy, and it may not always be comfortable, but it dissolves the limitations that bind you. Above all, it is the Truth that liberates you from your littleness and shows you the great Beings of Light that you really are. This is the way you can tell if it is the real Truth, for the Truth sets you free.” In The Magdalene Version, Stuart Wilson & Joanna Prenti
“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” 1 Corinthians
There is a part of us that always remembers that duality is an illusion. There is a space inside, large or small, where we consider that at the end of the day we are all one. We remember that we are not truly ever victims to our life experiences and that there is always a bigger picture. For many of the dramas we play out on this earth plane are just that, a drama played out within a dream that we will one day awaken from. Those who resonate with the Magdalene lineage have an innate desire for self-mastery. They share a common desire to understand what it means to take full responsibility for one’s own life and personal growth. They know on some level what it mean to accept and surrender to what is showing up in their reality, no matter how painful, not only with a curiosity to learn and understand, but to see what is present from a higher vantage point or perspective. It is a desire to come out of the illusion and dream state because something within knows there is something much richer beyond our current limited perception.
What is Duality? Any time we find ourselves blaming others, seeing ourselves as a victim, slipping into patterns of trying to control others and outer circumstances to make oneself feel ok or peaceful, we can be certain that our thoughts are in duality and we have come out of our true power. In addiction any time we feel superior or inferior to another, we know we are out of alignment with the soul and dreaming again in a dualistic state.
This workshop will allow participants to bring awareness to exactly how they are allowing room for duality in their own lives. It will give participants an opportunity to see how they can take daily responsibility for the thoughts they choose and how they partner with duality on some occasions and surrender to spirit and the bigger picture in others. Through meditation, past-life regression and progression, body-based awareness exercises and deep reflective practices, participants will be encouraged to bring awareness to areas of their lives where they may want to unlearn and shed habitual thought-patterns of duality and open to the realm of other possibilities that they sense deep inside.
