  • “going with the flow” – reading, following, guiding and reacting to energy
  • satsang (to sit with others seeking the truth of their being in the company and guidance of a teacher)
  • taking refuge in the dharma (a term with many meanings, but in this sense right living in accordance with cosmic and spiritual laws, teachings, and the Way) and sangha (community)
