http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores the true nature of our presence in the world and invites you to inhabit a new perspective—where your positive regard is spread out for all those around you. As wild as the world can be, what if you are here to be a redeeming presence in the world? What would that look like? How would that feel? When your center of regard shifts from personal to universal, love is birthed into existence and permeates your actions. Adyashanti invites you to embrace the underlying reality of your life and fully inhabit your existence.

Quotes from this video:

“Just imagine, at some moment, you realize that—even though this world is a wild place to be sometimes—that you so loved the world that you gave yourself to it, as an act of love. That that’s actually what you’re doing here.”

“When the center of our regard is not stuck within our own incarnation, that’s the birth of love—a causeless, universal love. Then you become a redeeming presence in the world. You become a liberating presence in the world.”

“When your center of regard, your center of your consciousness, shifts from you as an individual to what all beings have in common, not just human beings, but all of existence—from the most distant star, to an empty space, to everybody in this room, to the chair that you’re sitting on, to the air that you breathe—you see that it’s all just actually one underlying reality. To really see this is to embrace life. To find that radical yes to existence.”

“What if you came here for all the stuff that you’re running away from? What if your actual existence was to redeem all of that, in other words, to set it all free? And not just that, but everything else, by the way. In other words, to be a redeeming presence in the world.”

“Life is really meaningful in the small moments. That’s what really counts.”
