Disciples of the Eternal


In Volume Four of his series on the nondual teachings of Jesus Christ, Adyashanti sheds new light on how Jesus’ disciples represent different archetypal ways of relating to eternal being. Exploring the mythical relationships between Jesus and Peter, John, Pontius Pilate, Judas, and Mary Magdalene, Adyashanti shows how each personifies a quality that actually exists within us all.

Topics Include:

  • Stories are Truth Pointers
  • Jesus Recast as Eternal Being
  • The Disciples as Mythic Representations
  • Peter’s Fear of the Unknown
  • John the Beloved Follower
  • Pontius Pilate’s Service to the Community
  • Judas’ Existential Lack
  • Mary Magdalene’s Redemption
  • How We Respond in Critical Moments
  • The Double-Edged Sword of Your “Go-to” Trait

Quotes from this CD Album:

“If we get stuck in history, we’re only celebrating someone’s birth 2000 years ago and we are missing that the birth is an eternal birth.”

“One of the reasons why people are leaving the church in droves is because so much of what they get is not transparent to transcendence—it’s actually a block towards the transcendent.”

“The only thing that can recognize eternity in somebody is the eternity within themselves.”

“Is there or isn’t there free will? The only answer is to go to that state of consciousness where the question doesn’t arise.”
