In the game of life we wander between realms, moving from lower states to higher as our actions affect the state of our mind. Continuing from last week's talk, Dharmamayi gives us a closer look at what can emerge from 'the gap' in the chain of cyclic, repetitive existence. When we act creatively rather than reacting to events in the habitual way, a huge range of possibilities opens up. The spiral path is a progressive series of positive mental states leading to ever more free and expansive ways of living. It's a path we can all enter through choosing how to respond to what life brings, and is the same path which took the Buddha all the way to Enlightenment. This series of talks explores three great Buddhist symbols that describe the way things are: the wheel of life, the spiral path and the ultimate goal of Enlightenment. Together they form a guide to escape from the ultimate vicious circle into the complete freedom and fulfilment of Awakening. Talk recorded on 25.02.20
