In this essential talk, Adyashanti explores two fundamentally different motivations that human beings bring to spirituality. He first shows how the psychological desire to feel better and be constantly happy only leads to persistent suffering. He then reveals how the existential drive to see what’s really true regardless of our emotional state can free us to discover the simplicity and happiness of what we already are.

Topics Include:

  • The Psychological Orientation
  • The Existential Viewpoint
  • Being Hunted by God
  • Real Happiness
  • There’s No Self in Craving
  • What’s Valued?
  • Awareness in Sleep
  • Seeing Through Depression

Quotes from this Download:

“The desire to not suffer can take you very far into some deep truths but it can only take you so far.”

“The greatest happiness is to be free from the constant desire to be happy.”
