“How clearly can your humanity embody the enlightened condition?” - Adyashanti   I’ve been meaning to write about this topic for quite some time now. As it compliments the last two articles I wrote on “Seeking” part 1 and 2.   Whenever we read books, watch videos, go on retreat, or take in any kind of spiritual teaching its usually catered towards the perspective of seeking. So much that it seems as though that’s all spirituality is. Just endless seeking and practice. But if that were really the case I have a hard time believing that anyone would pursue an...

“Whether we consider what happens to us good fortune or ill fortune, appreciation for this life can wake us up and give us the courage we need to stay right there with whatever comes through the door.” - Pema Chödrön   I like to think of spiritual seeking in two parts; the mind, and the heart.

Because this is the space where a teaching lies within us. It’s just as important as the teaching itself. Spiritual teachers, philosophers, ministers, prophets, gurus, etc. often paint a picture with...

“Everything, in its way, is a gift—even the painful things. In reality, all of life—every moment, every experience—is an expression of spirit.” -Adyashanti   In the grand scheme of things, embracing vulnerability is a beautiful practice. In another sense, sometimes it can be hard to see it that way. Nobody has to tell you to allow yourself to become vulnerable to pleasant experiences. That’s easy, natural, and desirable. The challenge with this practice is to embrace all of reality. Even the experiences that are difficult. The reason why we do this is to move towards awakening. I also think that...
