There is a great paradox in spirituality: On the one hand, to wake up means to flow out of yourself—to leave the person you thought you were. Yet the other side of spirituality is to flow back in—to embrace one’s entire existence. Adyashanti explores both of these paradoxical aspects of the spiritual journey and illumines the intuitive capacity to move in life from the entirety of your being without resistance.
“Flowing out of yourself is flowing into yourself. Both of these movements are a type of freedom and a type of death.”
“Whenever someone comes into spiritual clarity, that feeling of flow inside is there because nothing inside you is saying no.”
“The truest authority flows from one’s direct experience.”
