The Effortless Flow of Freedom - Vol. 79


If you look at any experience of unhappiness or difficulty, you will always find some form of grasping or resistance. While many of us have heard -- and even understood -- this teaching, it’s another thing to have it truly penetrate our unpleasant states. In this insightful satsang, Adyashanti explores the interrelationship between nonresistance and unity consciousness, and how letting go of resistance or recognizing unified reality engenders the effortless flow of freedom.

Talk Topics Include:

  • The Cause of All Suffering
  • The Misperception that Drives Grasping
  • How We Seek Permanence within Impermanence
  • Every Moment Is Fundamental Reality
  • How Unity Consciousness and Nonresistance Relate to Each Other

Q&A Topics Include:

  • Easing the Enlightenment Pursuit
  • How Clarifying Desires Resolves Issues

Quotes from this DVD:

“Trying to maintain a pleasant state and avoid an unpleasant state is actually the cause of sorrow.”

“When you stop resisting, you see that what seems frightening is actually the absolute beauty of reality.”

“When you see that everything is a momentary display of reality, then you stop resisting it.”

“Resistance hurts, only every single time.”

“Love is the state of nonresistance.”
