There is so much confusion and misunderstanding around what it means to embody deep moments of spiritual awakening. For this reason, Adyashanti developed five concise principles -- the Five Foundations -- to help bring clarity and focus to the embodiment process. In this 4-download set of the 2014 Intensive at Esalen Institute, Adyashanti explores how to fearlessly apply these foundational principles in a way that both challenges and clarifies our understanding of what awakened living can be, and what it takes to live it.
Topics Include: Truly Knowing Your Spiritual Impulse / What Do You Value in This Moment / The Third Side of Relationships / Attending to the Little Truths / Living Your Deepest Knowing / Unconditional Follow-Through / Unconsciously Choosing to Suffer / Unhooking Our Conditioning with Family Members / Never Abdicate Your Authority / Understanding True Spiritual Autonomy / Witnessing Conditioned Structure from Inside It / Absolute Sincerity / Relating from Essence vs. the Surface / Fear of Aloneness
Quotes from this Download Set: “To clarify your aspiration means knowing exactly what it is that your spiritual life aspires to, not as a future goal but in each and every moment.” • “Life unfolds along the lines of what you value most.” • “The way you move in the world is a perfect reflection of your state of consciousness.” • “Lots of people have an awakening and then they start worshiping whatever teaching helped them have the awakening.” • “We are the inheritors of the totality of human consciousness. To be cut away from all of that at once makes you feel extraordinarily alone.” • “To be a good steward means you are not using spirituality to hide from any aspect of yourself or your life.”
Recorded at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California on February 28 and March 1, 2014.
