Adyashanti on the story of Jesus

Christ Consciousness Within

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    Dear Marille,

    Adyashanti. I really like him and I like his story of Christ, so grounded in his own personal experience and understanding…..which is clearly profound. Something about Adya’s rendition reminds me of, don’t laugh, the Last Temptation of Christ by Katzanzakis. I liked that too when I read it many years ago. Adya is more serious maybe but a good story is a good story if it strikes a chord. Anyway this talk was fascinating, relevant and…well….. What an inspired teacher he is. He even touched on the story that came to my mind when listening to Eckharts answer to “Did God create evil.”. The picture: Jesus casting out ‘demons’. ….into swine (just one?) which, If memory serves, promptly jumped over a cliff. Oh well…..is evil synomous with sin or just related in the aspect of darkness?

    I think it is without question that those gospels were written a century or so after Christ by people who weren’t there and then worked over by the Council of Nicea, and after that, translated and edited for centuries and even so they remain such powerful teachings. It is a wonder isn’t it.

    For me, the part of the story where Jesus’s humanity most clearly shines through is when he assumes that his disciples ‘get it’. Such a beautiful, enriching talk by Adya. Thank-you Michaela.
