Excerpt About Basic Fault
What the Basic Fault IsAll the various spiritual teachings address some version of our fundamental separation from reality. The understanding of this separation connects to a concept in psychology about a universal, painful disconnection in the infant soul, called the Basic Fault. Today we will use the phrase “basic fault” to speak of every person’s fundamental separation from Being, acknowledging how it relates to the psychological concept. True transformation happens only through the perception and understanding of this Basic Fault. Our realizations, insights, and experiences are necessary and, at times, painful or beautiful. But, if they are to transform who we are and what the world is, these realizations must expose and reveal the Basic Fault.
