If the universe is love, what is all the conflict that we see around us? In this video, Doug Duncan Sensei shares how fundamentally, the struggles of the world come from people feeling that they are unloved.

He explains that we can only feel unloved if we feel separate from the universe. Life is perfect, though your ego doesn’t think so. It always thinks it is not good enough, not strong enough etc.

He reminds us that you are never going to fix ‘you’, because fundamentally there is nothing broken, except for the idea that something is broken.

This is an excerpt from teachings on the Enneagram at our innovative retreat center in the British Columbia Rocky Mountains, Clear Sky.
