Via Sri Prem Baba: Flor do Dia- Flor del Día - Flower of the Day 24/10/2015

“O trânsito da ilusão para a percepção da Realidade na qual experimentamos Satchitananda – existência, consciência e bem aventurança absolutos - inevitavelmente envolve episódios de cura. Ocorre uma espécie de cirurgia psicoespiritual na qual tumores de autoengano são removidos. Essa cirurgia pode ser bastante desafiadora. O desafio será proporcional ao tamanho do apego ao que precisa ser removido.”

“El tránsito de la ilusión a la percepción de la Realidad en la cual experimentamos Satchitananda –existencia, consciencia y bienaventuranza absolutos– inevitablemente envuelve episodios de cura. Ocurre una especie de cirugía psico-espiritual en la cual tumores de autoengaño son removidos. Esta cirugía puede ser bastante desafiante. El desafío será proporcional al tamaño del apego que precisa ser removido.”

"We are moving from a perception of illusion to the perception of reality in which we experience Sat-chit-ananda: existence, consciousness and absolute bliss. This transition inevitably involves a healing process. A type of psychospiritual surgery may occur where tumors of self-deceit are removed. This surgery can be quite challenging, and how challenging it will be depends on how attached we are to what is needing to be removed.”

Today's Daily Dharma: Enlightenment Isn't Perfect

Enlightenment Isn't Perfect
We must give up the pursuit of positive emotional states through spiritual practice. The path of awakening is not about positive emotions. On the contrary, enlightenment may not be easy or positive at all. It is not easy to have our illusions crushed. It is not easy to let go of long-held perceptions. We may experience great resistance to seeing through even those illusions that cause us a great amount of pain.
—Adyashanti, "Bliss is a By-Product"
