In this short video, Dr. Deepak Chopra (doctor, spiritual teacher and author) summarizes the teachings of the nondual traditions with this explanation of one’s true essence-nature. He says, “The knowing secret is in the gap between every thought, every sensation, every perception, every sound, every breath, every image, every experience. The gap between objects is a perceptual gap between two snapshots of experience. So, in the gap is infinite creativity, infinite possibilities, and pure joy: Sat-chid-ananda. Sat, eternal truth; chid, pure consciousness; ananda, spontaneous joy. Mind the gap and you will be free! Satchidananda: that’s the secret.”
