Lack of self worth is “epidemic in western culture,” according to Adyashanti, an American spiritual teacher and author. This feeling of inadequacy is a “black hole” that exists in all of our egos. All around us, people feel this lack of self worth and yet no one wants to talk about it — it’s our “dirty little secret.” We want to hide our insecurities away and pretend they don’t exist.
But rather than hiding our secret, Adyashanti teaches how we can recognize these feelings, and actually use them to experience total authenticity. He argues that the black hole in our ego is an entryway to feeling complete.
Listen to Adyashanti and other spiritual teachers, like Anne Lamott and Jack Kornfield, speak at the Wake Up Festival, August 14 – 18. Click here for more information.
