I'll Keep My Light in My Window
Class & Satsang Sunday, and New York Community Choir
Happy Belated Equinox,
It's been some time since I've had mental space to share with all of you. I appreciate your patience and understanding as my life continues to shift and change. I have spent the last several months focused on learning as much as I can about all the ways that our digital world is vulnerable. It has been incredibly humbling to use this mind in a completely different way. I find myself flooded with curiosity and frustration constantly, and am joyfully learning and exploring constantly.
As I reflect on why I am drawn into the world of ethical hacking, I understand that, just as with spiritual practice, it all boils down to awareness. Before I start boring you with technical talk, I'll digress and invite you to the Community Class and Satsang this Sunday. You can find the details below.
Here's a clip from January's Satsang, where someone asked about Yoga Sutra 1.33:
In relationships, the mind becomes purified by cultivating feelings of friendliness towards those who are happy, compassion for those who are suffering, goodwill towards those who are virtuous, and indifference or neutrality towards those we perceive as wicked or evil.
(maitri karuna mudita upekshanam sukha duhka punya apunya vishayanam bhavanatah chitta prasadanam)

Have a listen to the tail end of my response about how to cultivate indifference/neutrality:
