Title: Exploring the Unknown Dimensions of Consciousness Through Rumi’s Hidden Teachings: Shadow, Projection, and Reflection – Part 1
Speaker: Farzad Khalvati
“You are a tree with thousands of shadows on every side.
Love your shadows. Don’t cut them off from your being.
Bring the shadows to the light so they will fade away.
Reveal your glowing face like a sunrise.”
Often, we have the impression that the path of self-realization has little to do with our daily lives and interactions. On the surface, self-realization seems so abstract and disconnected from “real” life that it is hard to see that it (self-realization) is, indeed, the only way out of suffering and having a creative and meaningful life.
Nevertheless, unknowingly, every day, we deal with the innermost dimensions of our awareness, without realizing that the quality of our daily life depends on deep understanding of these unknown dimensions of consciousness such as Shadow, Projection, and Reflection.
With the help of the hidden teachings of Rumi, in this talk, dialogue, and contemplation, we will explore these hidden dimensions of our awareness to become one step closer to self-realization.
