In this uniquely intimate broadcast, Adyashanti shares personal and spiritual reflections on the collective issue of racism. He emphasizes the importance of opening our hearts and minds and deeply listening to what this moment calls for within each of us. He also invites us to honor both our uniqueness and commonality; it is in connecting to our common essence that we can discover a powerful foundation from which to engage in the world.
“It’s an important thing in life—to know what we are good at and what we are not good at—to know where our calling lies."
“The inward isn’t the solution to everything. The outward isn’t the solution to everything. We need this reciprocal movement.”
“These aren’t easy issues. I think we all know that. There isn’t going to be a wand that’s waved that transforms all of this. This is a life’s work.”
“Part of the inner work is awakening but it’s also a discovery of what our own individual calling is. Our calling isn’t something that comes from our ego…the ego receives the calling.”
“It’s important that a change of heart goes along with a the change of policy.”
“Awakening is not going to magically solve all of our problems, but it can become a foundation from which a more intimate, honest, loving, and open-minded participation in the human experience can flower.”
Recorded in San Jose, California on June 24, 2020.
