What is your contribution to life? In this rich, visionary satsang, Adyashanti urges us to realize how our consciousness is affecting the world around us, and how we are contributing to life at each moment. He reveals that what arises from the illumined heart is not a world-denying spirituality; he instead encourages us to participate in the world community in the way that is authentic to us. By bringing our knowledge of unity into our actions, our expression helps to awaken the creative capacity of all beings.

Quotes from this Download: “Each of our lives counts more than you can imagine.” • “When we come to a depth within ourselves that is fundamentally rooted and grounded in a shared experience and perception of unity, that depth determines what our contribution to the world is going to be.” • “If life is asking anything, it’s asking us to live life authentically.” • “That’s the signature of an authentically realized being: what they do, they do for the sake of love.” • “If you’re connected to your heart, to eternity within you, that connection, when it’s authentic and deep, will inform and inspire your actions.” • “The point is for all of us to come back to that primordial state of being, innocence, intelligence, and love, which we can know by being it, but we can’t know it by thinking about it.”
