Two questions have been posed for discussion:

How can we develop spiritual maturity and work on our consciousness as noted in the Bhagavad Gita?
We have been taught from childhood that life is a gift, but we don’t quite understand what this means. Soham and Omphale light the path of awareness for us in their discussion on the relationship between Krishna and Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita is an epic poem which speaks to the deepest questions of life: Who are we and why are we here? As Soham relates, Krishna represents God, and Arjuna represents the individual. Together, their discourse asks us to see beyond the body and the senses to experience the oneness that lies within. We are also asked to understand that the roles we live in one moment of time are fleeting and only one expression of our true nature. When we direct our attention inward to source, we experience the light of wisdom, and the darkness of ignorance is dispelled.

How can we use our lives, our time here, to work our path? Soham explains that spiritually, the fundamental reality is the here and now. When we step out of this moment to the past or the future, we have stepped off the path of discovery. The goal of life is this moment itself. As we begin to shift from intellectual knowing into the embodiment of understanding, time itself will cease in the moment. Remaining present to the moment = complete presence. Complete presence aligns thought, word, and deed. Stepping out of the moment, engages duality.
