Last month, my friend Hursh introduced me to Adyashanti, the philosopher and spiritual teacher. I’ve been on break this week so decided to go down a rabbit hole and watch a number of his talks on YouTube.
This one on fear particularly resonated with me. Instead of fighting our fears, Adyashanti suggests slowing down, getting still, and relaxing into the knowledge that you will let go when the time is right and you are ready. He makes a compelling argument that there’s nothing to fear to begin with but we need to discover that ourselves by meeting that fear.
If you’re currently battling fear in your life, I invite and encourage you to take fifteen minutes to watch this short talk. It helped me shift my perspective and let go of a fear I’ve been holding onto for months. May it do the same for you.
