Okay, so it feels good to say "all is one" in the yoga studio. But during the other hours of the day, aren't we all behaving as if it's you versus me, in a dog-eat-dog world?

Self-Definition Is Self-Limitation

Pavel Somov, Ph.D. | Posted 11.17.2011 | Healthy Living
Pavel Somov, Ph.D.

A self-definition is not self-knowledge: it's self-delusion. You are not limited to any "this" or "that," certainly not until you are finished living. You are un-limited (by words or thoughts).

An Introduction to Kabbalah, Part 2: God Does Not Exist, God is Existence Itself

Jay Michaelson | Posted 11.17.2011 | Healthy Living
Jay Michaelson

At the deepest, most fundamental level, the true reality of our existence is One, Ein Sof, infinite, and thus the sense of separate self that we all have is not ultimately true.

"It Is What It Is" Is the Only Truth, the Rest is Interpretation

Pavel Somov, Ph.D. | Posted 11.17.2011 | Healthy Living
Pavel Somov, Ph.D.
