Adyashanti: Life gives us opportunities in direct proportion to what we realize

The more aware we become, life tends to give us life situations that allow us to exercise our deepest knowing. Life gives us opportunities—life situations—in direct proportion to what we realize, almost as if to say “now let’s see what you realize put into practice.” It’s like an opportunity to move out of the abstract level of realization into the actual nuts and bolts and activity of living life. And so life is always giving us situations in which we can express the deepest thing that we know to be true. And we will either express the deepest thing we know to be true, or we won’t. If we don’t, then we will know it because it will hurt. It will cause ourselves or another suffering. Wisdom has to end up in surrender.
