There is a kind of autonomy that goes deeper than self-esteem. It is an inner spiritual sovereignty sourced in the realization of true nature, which is not affected by one’s life circumstances. Through this talk and dialogues, Adyashanti explores subtle facets of this personal spiritual autonomy and its paradoxical relationship with unity. He shows how true non-division comes from not only recognizing the unification of existence but also embracing and penetrating every aspect of one’s humanity.
Topics Include: Conflict from Lack of Inner Sovereignty / What Is Spiritual Autonomy? / The Paradox of Unity and Autonomy / Redemptive Love / Functioning from Truth / Receiving the Totality of the Moment
Quotes from this Download: “It is much easier to see the unity of all things than to have it penetrate your humanity.” • “One of the greatest dilemmas of existing is conflict; it could be as small as a thought that you don’t want or as big as a world war.” • “Redemptive love cuts to the bone of human experience…it has the power to dispel conflict.”
