EP228: A coaching session on why this message hasn’t gone beyond the intellectual

Euan reached out to have this conversation because, despite years of exploring a variety of spiritual topics and practices, he says it has only landed intellectually.

As a result, he has a terrible feeling that he’ll spend the rest of his life with his thoughts getting in the way, missing what could have been. 

This conversation highlights so perfectly how a mind loves to spin on concepts and expectations as a distraction from This. A way to keep us listening to it, rather than feeling life as it is arising. 

There is no conceptual insight or solution that will bring us closer to life. Life, this, here, now is the closest we can get. This is what we’re looking for. 

If you are a regular listener of this podcast or a LSBC graduate, you know how common this question is. I’m very grateful to Euan for having such an honest, open talk that I know will resonate with many of you.
