Resisting Our Current Circumstances & Taking Action to End the Suffering

In this episode, Dr. Erhard Vogel and I talk about what it means to resist our current circumstances and what happens when we try to act from that place of chaos. When we aren’t acting in accordance with who we are, we cause ourselves a lot of pain and suffering. Erhard shares his thoughts on what it takes to come to awareness & acceptance of where you are and the right kind of action to take from the right kind of teacher. Acceptance with what is doesn’t mean you are going to stay in a place you don’t like. In fact, it’s the opposite. Acceptance means you are in touch with yourself enough to listen to your internal cues and respond to those signals to create something new. If you are resisting something and want to understand more about yourself to change your experience, this episode is for you.
