Since resistance is inseparable from the mind, relinquishment of resistance - surrender - is the end of the mind as your master, the impostor pretending to be "you", the false god. All judgment and all negativity dissolve. The realm of Being, which has been obscured by the mind, then opens up. Suddenly, a great stillness arises within you, an unfanthomable sense of peace. And within that peace, there is great joy. And within that joy, there is love. And at the innermost core, there is the sacred, the immeasurable, That which cannot be named. -- (Quotation from Eckhart Tolle)
During my undergraduate studies, I became aware of the teachings and practices for inner self realization and actualization. I continued my education and completed a Ph.D. in Sociology. I also continued to contemplate the core insights and practices of spiritual teachers and mystics, and to study the new developments in science and healing.
