Student Question: You said that we have to stop asking questions that would be impediments to our growth. What kind of questions would be impediments to our growth?

“Well the question of the ego that says, ‘Why is it so hard? How can I do this? I don’t know how.’ All of those questions that create a sense of helplessness and hopelessness that don’t really have answers. But they are not true questions,” elucidates Shunyamurti, the founder of the Sat Yoga Institute in Costa Rica. These are questions are asked by a false self who cannot find answers and cannot find God, “because to the ego, God can only be imagined as another entity that’s in resistance to the world, or wants to dominate the world, or wants to manipulate us in some way. And so everybody hates that God—but that is not the real God. But the ego cannot imagine a God that is neither a dictator, or some negligent clockmaker, or some being who started this whole thing and then abandoned us . . . and doesn’t give a damn. That’s not the reality of God, but the ego cannot imagine that we are all within God that is supporting us; that is the very love that keeps life going, and is the intelligence that directs life at every level.” Recorded on the evening of Thursday, December 31, 2009.
