The Way of Awakening

What is involved in the process of awakening to our highest potential? Ken reflects on the evolution of spiritual practice and what that offers us.

“As profound and important as the core of the great spiritual traditions are – we do keep learning new stuff. That tends to at least help and flesh out and expand our own capacities of realization. As well as the depth of our realization. What we are bringing forth and manifesting.” – Ken Wilber

Freedom Through Emptiness (23:15)

How can we find freedom through the realization of emptiness?

“One of the components that a realization of emptiness can help bring to a person is a sense of vast freedom. Absolute liberation from all constraints. The constraints come from the limited identities you have. This self verses other. As the Upanishads say, wherever there is other there is fear. When we realize the pure radical emptiness of all that, there is a deep deep freedom from being released from those limitations.” – Ken Wilber
