In this ten minute vide,o spiritual teacher Roger Castillo explains that there are two ways of living: one from the mind and one from being. The more we rely on our mind the more we tend to suffer, because our mind expects life to look a certain way. But the mature way of living is living from being, accepting reality as it is, enjoying our inherent peaceful nature.
Roger is a direct disciple of the famous enlightened Indian Advaita (Non-duality) Master Ramesh Balsekar.
