“In most mythological systems, there is a theme of the double or the twins, and there are different kinds of twinships. One version is that there are two birds in a tree. One bird is eating the fruits on the tree and the other is just watching. This would be the twinship of the soul and the spirit.” As Shunyamurti, the founder and director of the Sat Yoga Institute, argues, this myth of the twins provides a backdrop or a better understanding of the connection with our phenomenal and noumenal realities. “The problem is that part of the consciousness is identified very strongly with the karmically enmeshed ego-form. . . . The only way out is to disidentify and realize you are not the bird that has eaten of the fruit but the other bird that has never been touched by trauma or any of the karmic enmeshments or identifications that the ego is plagued with.”

So, paradoxically, “at the moment when we’re the most cut off from the vastness of the Supreme Self is that moment that we are closest to it in time that the return of eternity into the dimension of time becomes again inevitable and we are in that moment now. . . . This is the moment we have arrived at on this planet. And at the same time it’s the moment in which the doors of our perception can be most opened to cosmic realities that of the merely human plane. . . . So I hope you will all make the choice that will lead to the highest blessings that are possible for consciousness to attain.” Recorded on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 22, 2009.
