A Quote by Adyashanti on freedom, insecurity, free, spirituality, striving, spiritual, mind, seeking, and enlightenment

Inherent in the impulse to be free, is insecurity.  The impulse to be free comes from outside of the mind, and because of this, it makes the mind feel very insecure.  Most spiritual seekers move away from this insecurity by seeking and striving for a distant spiritual goal.  That’s how they avoid feeling insecure.

A Quote by Robert Aitken on buddhism, practice, seeking, and tao

It is time to turn to the traditional teachings, if you are so inclined, or simply to search on your own. Take heart, and from your own heart and mine we can weather this war that ranges all round us, and together we can embody and present the Way.
