Most people are unconsciously velcroed to their experience; they are their experience and, as such, don't recognize how they are creating their own suffering through reactive patterns. Yet, upon awakening to our deeper nature, it is possible to notice a vital space between us and what is occurring in any moment; it is this space that allows for choice and options that can profoundly transform our lives. Adyashanti explores how to move from this space so that there is greater congruence between spiritual awakening and the way we express ourselves, thereby enabling us to live our deepest wisdom more fully.
