Light of the Soul: Sutras 7-13 in Book 1

photoLast Sunday, the highlights from Sutra 7 included thoughts on correct cognition, correct perception, and correct intuition. We discussed modes of cognition, perception, and a little about intuition. At essence, all of these are necessary in order to correctly perceive and participate in Reality.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs we moved along through Sutras 8, 9, 10 and up to 13, the discussion and teaching included passivity in meditation, the layers of a sense and sensation, holding onto the past such that it conditions the present which then cannot be present, onto what is required of a meditator.
