Forgetfulness is taking that which is temporal to be permanent, that which is impure as pure, that which is paniful as pleasant and the non-seer as the Self!

Lesson Five Recipe

The Cosmic Egg

Eggs are a complete food.  Purnam is the sankrit word for this. Picture your movement into the world as an emergence from the cosmic womb of matter itself, and then cook yourself something delicious with eggs. If you are vegan eat a chocolate egg or  find another symbol that works for you. Meditate upon the concept of coming into the word as whole and complete and then getting smashed to pieces. The whole journey is one of coming back together once again but more balanced. How has your life experience shape your journey back to being whole?
