“If you ask someone or take the time to feel the mirror-eye that’s listening to these words, and then feel where is it located in your body. Most people will feel it in the middle of their head behind their eyes. Feel that location and thank it for all its hard work. Appreciate its functionality and ask it for some space and then open to a mindful witness of this mirror eye.” – Loch Kelly

This week on Mindrolling, Loch and Raghu get into:
  • How mindfulness can be effortless
  • Loch’s transformative experience in Nepal
  • A down-to-earth explanation of no-self or ‘mirror-eye’
  • Sustaining the state of awakening

  • Returning home through mindfulness practice
  • Karma yoga and realizing our self-interested motivations
  • A guided meditation from Loch

“You can’t wait until you feel completely without ego, you can not wait for that. The beauty is you actually do the thing, and you have enough mindfulness to realize your self-interested motivations. From that platform can you become free.“ – Raghu Markus
