Levels of Consciousness Part 2      |      March 27, 2017   |   19 mins

ABOUT THIS EPISODE
This episode picks up where Part 1 left off. We explore what the nature of our intellectual and intuitive self look like using the story of the encounter between the famous Zen monk, Hakuin, and a powerful Samurai. The Samurai is seeking insight into the nature of heaven and hell and the Zen master skillfully takes his consciousness from this intellectual pursuit, through anger and then to the knowing of our higher self. By understanding how these levels of our nature work, we can see how easy it is to enter the gates of hell and experience a life filled with suffering. Any person dominated by their emotions or thoughts is going to struggle to maintain a healthy, happy and fulfilled experience of life.
