Adyashanti – The Intimacy of Relatedness – We presume that we are constantly relating to all of life with a feeling of separation between you and life. Deeper within, we have an innate desire to dissolve these boundaries and merge with all of life, yet we also fear this dissolution. Adyashanti describes these simultaneous instincts and points to an equanimity and intimacy of being that closes the gap of perceived separation.

Excerpted from “Silent Retreat Vol. 69 ~ Asilomar 2018 ~ Talks”:

Quotes from this Video:

“The drive for intimacy is largely compelled by the drive to close the gap that self-consciousness creates.”

“We desire to have our boundaries dissolve, and also we’re terrified of having our boundaries dissolve.”

“We know our self to a great extent by what we’re not.”
