Adyashanti speaks on the idea that in order to shed the “person” (ego, mind, personality), we have to let go completely of our “wants” and “don’t wants”. Because this seems like a very, very scary thing to do is the reason why so few beings can shed their false sense of self. They feel as though if they let go completely, somehow this will mean having to leave everything behind. This is only a fear from the mind itself and the actuality is really quite different. Adyashanti explains.
