In this essential satsang, Adyashanti starts with a talk that clarifies two ways a deep spiritual urge arises: through a personal desire and a more universal concern that is rooted in the wholeness of our being. He shows how being in accord with reality integrates these perspectives, resulting in a powerful force for transformation that has both inner significance and a dimension that is grounded in something vast.
Topics Include: Beyond the Narrow Focus of the Personal / A Bigger Context / The Necessary Balance and Ballast / Judgmentalism vs. Wise Judgment / The Cause of Our Unhappiness / What Is the Middle Way? / The Intuitive Sense of Connection / Opening Up the Aperture / A Vital Presence in Life
Quotes from this Download: “When we’re motivated from fear, it can feel very powerful, but it’s a very weak force as far as transformation is concerned.” • “The larger view is to have our own spiritual yearning also have an element that’s rooted in the whole.” • “Uniqueness is the signature of oneness.” • “Judgmentalism is different from wise judgment, which doesn’t put you at odds with reality.”
