The session was amazing. Brother Paul a is very impressive human being.
I learned that he cooks every day and he doesn't know his true self is.
He said that he is who he is in reference to whom he represents. He also said that he was the mirror of God's love. He said, "if God is hidden in darkness, he is in darkness himself, and vice versa.
Pravraijika Vrajaprana spoke about the true self always being full, in Hinduism. She said "you can't feed a phantom." She explained, knowing your trueself is being able to hear about your self, reflecting and meditating on it. Being your true self requires internal, pure, transcended consciousness. She also mentioned that the false self limits our identity. My favorite thing she mentioned is, "we are not subject to our situation." So many people need to hear that message. And as I stated before it's a shame more people were unable to hear it.
I will say I was most confused while listening to Mr. Gerardo Abboud speak about Buddhism. They only thing that I would change is making the subjects more understandable. I really liked when the speakers kept things plain.
All in all the session was still an eye-opener. I identify with people searching to discover our true self. I appreciate them taking their time and explaining it in the way and I could understand. What I got from the session is, it's okay not to know your true self we are are seeking the same answers the the same questions.
P.s. I enjoyed the live musicians at the event very much. They added a much need atmosphere difference.
