in the Light of Your Deepest Essence
“Grace is not a haphazard thing.
It's always here, always available.
The question is: how do we welcome it?”
Do you often feel that life is mundane and find yourself longing for a greater sense of aliveness and more heartfelt connections with those around you?
Have you been meditating or practicing yoga for years, but feel there is a vast “essential nature” that you've never been able to fully awaken to and experience directly?
On a spiritual retreat, have you ever connected to a space of joy and wonder—and then felt that awareness fade away?
Amid the distractions and demands of our modern world, it's so easy to get scattered, anxious, or frustrated, teaches Adyashanti. But we also encounter wondrous “moments of grace” all the time—those brief glimmers of remembering when life steps forward unbidden and you suddenly know yourself as vital, limitless, and free.
“It might happen in the still, quiet moments when you've woken up early before anyone else. You suddenly remember the beauty of existence. And that awakening cuts through all the complications of life. You feel the heart begin to open, the mind expand a little, just to meet something as simple as the morning light.”
But the problem, most of us realize, is that amid the constant bustle of modern life, we miss those windows, dismiss them in pursuit of our next “must-do,” and then we forget them.
Thousands who've attended Adyashanti's retreats experience something similar:
“I was so profoundly liberated and illuminated by the experience, but then after a few days or month, that vitality and immediacy of being fades away.”
So, what to do? How do we stay attuned to our essential joy and freedom in the “distract me!” culture of modernity?
