March 2020 - Live Q&A

  • 00:17:40 Why is humanity going through a huge change right now?
  • 00:23:50 What to do if you always find yourself in a lose-lose situations?
  • 00:28:00 I wrestle with sometimes feeling like the spiritual community bypasses the evil and corruption in the world, but I then feel pessimistic to dwell on it. How do you find a healthy balance between being aware/prepared for the worst while not actually manifesting the worst case scenario?
  • 00:29:50 Is it true that the ability to love ourselves can easily be lost in our childhood, I mean when we're so young that we have no chance to take notice of it?
  • 00:30:40 People not voicing their emotions and living with the attitude to cover everything under the "pretty happy" blanket makes me SO aggressive. How can I deal with this for myself and still not take it so personal?
  • 00:32:00 Can selective identification be in service of integration?
  • 00:34:15 How are self love and loneliness related?
  • 00:38:40 My first response is to push against what's happening in the world. I want to attack everyone perpetuating mass panic. Is there a way to become soft in this experience?
  • 00:39:50 I am more anxious on a normal day than when we have a pandemic, why is this?
  • 00:41:45 How do we stay in alignment during these periods of isolation? Especially when we have to stay at home by law?
  • 00:43:20 I think we will come out of the other side of this 2020 crisis in a better place collectively. How long do you think this chaos will last before the calm?
  • 00:47:00 I'm trapped in the house with my dysfunctional family. How do I navigate this experience?
  • 00:49:15 How can I inspire my 21 year old daughter to look inward for her truth and guidance, rather than looking outward, ie: social media entrenchment and comparison, material possession, making educational decisions based on future salary?
  • 00:52:30 I like to think that I am somewhat authentic, authentic to the degree I've discovered myself. I fear inauthenticity in others. Can you explain why?
  • 00:53:35 I've been in consecutive long-term relationships my entire adult life. I'm realizing how unsafe I feel without a primary partner now that I'm single for the first time. Would it be more self-loving to figure out how to feel safe in my autonomy for a while or to go towards my desire (compulsion?) for another relationship immediately?
  • 00:55:00 Is there a way to form a relationship that is 100% safe? I want intimacy and closeness, but I struggle with finding people who can support me with emotional presence. I then distance myself from people.. I find I am in a constant battle of separation.
  • 00:57:20 Doing spiritual practices (meditation, yoga asana, breathing practices, kundalini...) has a really beneficial effect on my life - both in that moment and cumulatively over time. However, I’ve gotten to a stage where I can feel a bit trapped, like I can’t feel good and aligned unless I maintain this schedule of practices. Any advice?
  • 01:00:30 I'm working as a scientist but I'm also very much into spirituality. Part of me feels that this is a contradiction and towards colleagues i'm ashamed of my beliefs. How can I accept myself fully?
  • 01:02:35 You said to ‘follow your joy’ is the purpose of life. But you also said ‘Run away from me(Teal) asap if wanting to feel good is your reason of learning spirituality.' It seems like they are completely the opposite. How should I understand this?
