Study nature and consciousness to inform your vision and career

Catherine Sensei begins this episode explaining, “The natural cycles of nature are in essence the same as the natural cycles of dharma, karma and consciousness.”  There’s a natural wisdom and compassion we can access both studying nature and studying consciousness.  Doug and Catherine Sensei discuss that society`s number one function is “to free people to explore.” However, because of our busy lives and our clinging to security, very few people take the time to map out and study how their mind works, how their consciousness works. “  Our ego looks for security which leads us into anxiety and missing the wonder.  “You need a vision bigger than your lifetime and bigger than yourself.  Otherwise the ego will always feel insecure”, Doug and Catherine explain.
