In the quest for spiritual freedom, most human beings make it very complicated. As Adyashanti clarifies in this meeting, we either grasp for certain experiences or resist the ones we are having—which he shows are forms of the same phenomena. He illustrates how true happiness comes from dropping all resistance to whatever is happening inside or outside ourselves, and discovering the simple intrinsic freedom that is actually already present before we go seeking it.
"Desire is a kind of resistance."
"The only thing that is happening is what is. You can't really suffer unless you go into what should or shouldn't be."
"All forms of unworthiness are resistance."
"If you want to be happier, just drop your resistance."
"Redemptive love pours itself into all that is as an act of love."
