The life of Jesus represents an embodied expression of spiritual realization. He is an archetype of divinity, incarnated in human form. In this download set from the 2018 Christmas Intensive, Adyashanti shows how we, too, can awaken to the unbounded, eternal light of Spirit, and how we can bring this revelation into the nitty-gritty aspects of our lives, where we engage from a truthful, generative, and benevolent presence.

“An encounter of Spirit has this strange combination of something that’s very comforting and very disquieting at the same time. It’s comforting because it’s an encounter with something that seems primordial and ancient and intimate. Yet it’s disquieting because any encounter with Spirit shakes our orientation. There’s always some upheaval in your life orientation.”

“Our delusion is that everything exists objectively the way we see it. But what we’re seeing is an interpretation of whatever is there.”

“Christ’s whole life is an embodied expression of Spirit, of this sort of dynamic, creative, generative energy and presence.”

“Christ is a living embodiment, a representation of a certain quality of spiritual revelation that’s available basically to anybody.”

“The whole message of Jesus’ life was the question: ‘How do you engage in life in such a manner that it can be experienced as something like the kingdom of heaven?’”

“Jesus was a master at destabilizing people, but in a constructive way—destabilizing in the sense that he knocked them off balance so that their consciousness can open.”

“One of the biggest barriers to awakening is the belief in its rarity or that you have to deserve it." 

“People that are committed at a very deep level are the ones who live a more or less awakened life.”
