“Don’t imitate your teacher or your guru. Find within yourself that power which moves him.” Adyashanti in My Secret Is Silence
Since there are many new people following the blog, I thought this would be a good time to point back to the post “Why One Teacher?”
This post will explain if you’re wondering, Why all the Adyashanti?
He’s the spiritual teacher whose teachings I connect with the most and have decided to exclusively listen to when it comes to the matter of Truth and awakening to It. I’m not trying to be him. I’m just sharing what makes sense for me. Maybe it will for you too.
I’m not saying he’s the teacher for everyone, and he certainly does not proclaim that. If his words, or the words coming from me, don’t resonate with you, that’s ok. Feel free to unfollow and find what is calling you now, what makes sense for you. That’s why there are many teachers saying essentially the same thing in different ways. Find what points you to the Ultimate Source of Reality if this is not it.
Just as a baseball player would be confused and frustrated if listening to eight different batting coaches on how to hit the ball – all giving good but contradicting advice on how to do the same thing – it’s equally frustrating when listening to many different spiritual teachers. I tried that for a good portion of this life and felt more lost than ever. Then about a year ago I stumbled upon the book, The End of Your World, already on my bookshelf, and it all suddenly became very clear. Something within said with a simple sigh, Yes.
Find that for yourself.
