Roger Castillo – Satsang Title TBA
Live Satsang with Roger July 1, 2023
The speaker, Roger Castillo, begins by expressing his excitement about discovering the work of philosopher Baruch Spinoza, whose philosophy aligns with the teachings he shares. He explains that he prefers concepts that are based on a rational approach to life and dislikes esoteric concepts that are disconnected from daily life.
However, he acknowledges the power of concepts like God in spiritual teachings, as they can help break through belief systems and uncover aspects of ourselves that are often overlooked. He believes that these concepts can create a distance between our awareness and the consciousness of God or our own human consciousness. Regardless of whether it is God’s consciousness or our own that we awaken to, he emphasizes the importance of recognizing and understanding this aspect of ourselves.
He also mentions that Spinoza’s rationalist approach aligns with his desire to share explainable concepts. He believes that concepts should be verifiable and testable in daily life, even if there may be deeper levels or ultimate truths beyond our current understanding.
He concludes by questioning why some teachings rely on notions that cannot be observed in daily life and attribute everything to a trick of consciousness.
(Suggestion: if a specific insight comes
while listening to the Satsang, write it down
so you can have it available for sharing with the group.)
