Aaron: My blessings and love to you all. I am Aaron. Here is Michigan deeply bound in a winter, 10 degrees out there, snow blowing around. Barbara was thinking to herself this morning, “I’ve had enough of winter.” How many of you have said that, in the past weeks? Read more

Barbara: Aaron reminds me I will not be able to talk well, me as Barbara, later, once he’s incorporated. He’s suggesting I share a little of my Casa experience.

Two things I would share. I got there on a Sunday morning. Spirit had said to me that they would want to do at least one or several interventions, but they would do them at night, right after dinner, and then I could sleep for 12 hours and take care of my group the next day. That 12 hours would be enough. So, sure enough, after dinner that first night we had a group circle, and suddenly— (sound effect!) And I said good night and went in to bed and slept until quite late, through breakfast the next morning. I could feel them working on my back. Read more

Reviewed to the end of Aaron’s opening talk and then Barbara’s words of her present experience. Remainder is not reviewed at all.

Aaron: My blessings and love to you all. I am Aaron… Barbara had planned to talk to me this afternoon about my plans for tonight. She became busy with this, and busy with that, as humans tend to do. Finally, about quarter of six, she left this room into a quiet room and said, “Okay, Aaron, I’m ready now to talk.” Read more

Aaron: My blessings and love to you all. I am Aaron. So, the dharma path continues its interweaving. We started out with a metaphor of a braid with different parts, or a rope—when they wind around each other, they become stronger. But a better, clearer image is that of a woven fabric, because we do not just have 3 strands, as a braid, but innu-merable strands, bringing in different pieces of warp and weft, woven together to make a strong beautiful fabric, so that you begin to understand and deeply experience the fullness of this dharma path.

Aaron speaks of the Mala Recollection from Barbara Brodsky in this class.

Aaron: My blessings and love to you all. I am Aaron. It’s good to be back together. Many of you were at the retreat. There was so much love shared at the retreat; it was very beautiful. Those who were there went very deep and worked very hard. I salute you; I bow in honor to you, for that hard work. The repeated question I heard through the week is, Aaron, this practice is breaking my heart. I am touching places of old pain, or current pain. Read more

Aaron: My blessings and love to you all. I am Aaron. Welcome. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. I always smile at the fact that you put aside one day to give thanks! How about 364 days of Thanksgiving, and on Thanksgiving Day, you say, “Well, we’ll let it go for the day.”?

Barbara and Aaron on Their Dharma Paths

Barbara: When I first met Aaron, the word “dharma” had very little meaning for me. Back in high school I had read The Dharma Bums, by Jack Kerouac. Dharma was an obscure word to me. I practiced meditation, but I had no formal training in Buddhism; I knew almost nothing about Buddhism.

Aaron:
There was a song, I think in the ’60’s:

Be not too hard for life is short
And nothing is given to man.
Be not too hard when he is sold or bought,
For he must manage as best he can.

(Joan Baez, Be Not Too Hard)

The Path of Clear Light

Barbara: (reading questions) “In pure awareness, can there sometimes be no object, instead of a supramundane object?” Let’s call it objectless awareness, but there is always something. It may be light; it may be spaciousness. It may be the experience of the open heart. It may be just a very high vibration. It may be awareness aware of awareness. My own personal experience is that there’s always something.

Q&A on Primordial Purity and All Ground, the Kayas

Aaron: My blessings and love to you all. I am Aaron. Welcome to all of you out there in blue dot land. I’m calling it “blue dot land” because at the base of the camera is a bright blue electric dot, electric light dot, at which I am to gaze. I am told that means I’m looking in your eyes. It doesn’t look like your eyes; it looks like a blue dot! I’ll take their word for it.

What is the Difference Between Primordial Purity and All Ground? What is the Difference Between Consciousness and Awareness?

(question not entirely taped; paraphrasing)
Q: I’m wondering if Aaron could say a little bit more about the primordial purity and All Ground.

Aaron: She’s having difficulty understanding the difference between primordial purity and All Ground. Perhaps because there is no difference; they’re part of each other. Imagine an underground spring from a deep, clear source, totally untouched by anything above the surface. Read more

Finding the Balance Between Relative and Ultimate

Aaron: Good evening, and my love to you all. I am Aaron. Hello out there, all of you who dwell within the blue dot! (On Zoom- internet) I love this process, and to look into your faces on the screen behind me. Such a wonder that we can all be together in this way— in this, whatever it’s called, this electronic space.

Coming Back to the Experience of the Dharmakaya

Barbara: Aaron has asked me to talk for a few minutes before he starts. In the groups, we talked a lot— in each group, to different degrees— but about the three kayas, and understanding the experience— not the intellectual part or terminology, but the experience of the sambhogakaya bridge. What helps us to stay on that bridge, to connect both the ultimate and relative reality. Aaron will talk more about this, but he would like me to share something.

What is the Dharma Path and Where is it Taking Us?

Aaron: We continue. The three kayas— Dharmakaya, nirmanakaya, and the bridge of sambhogakaya. In the Path of Clear Light, I speak about the radiant essence that is the core of each of you. The Path of Clear Light is basically about knowing this innate radiance of your being; this fully awakened aspect of your being; this unconditionally loving aspect of your being.
