There is only consciousness. There is no individual apart from consciousness who is conscious.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Most people don't get out of childhood, or adolescence, without being wounded for telling the truth. Someone says 'you can't say that' or 'you shouldn't say that' or 'that wasn't appropriate' so most of us human beings have a very deep underlying conditioning that says that just to be who we are is not OK.......Most human beings have an imprinting that if they're real, if they're honest, somebody's not gonna like it. And they won't be able to control their environment if they tell the truth.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Meditation is not something restricted to times of formal seated meditation; it is most fundamentally an attitude of being-a resting in and as being.

Eventually, in the state of liberation, meditation will simply become your natural condition.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Doubt is always accompanied by a pervasive cynicism that unconsciously puts a negative spin on whatever it touches.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ego is the movement of the mind toward objects of perception in the form of grasping, and away from objects in the form of aversion. This fundamentally is all the ego is. This movement of grasping and aversion gives rise to a sense of a separate 'me,' and in turn the sense of 'me' strengthens itself this way.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why is it that so few people are truly free? Because they try to conform to ideas, concepts, and beliefs in their heads.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Grace is something that comes to us when we somehow find ourselves completely available, when we become openhearted and open-minded, and are willing to entertain the possibility that we may not know what we think we know.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No one can give you the strength of character necessary... Only you can find that passion within that burns with an integrity that will not settle for anything less than the Truth.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At first it seems as if begoing follows becoming. But look even closer and you will see that there are only flashes of lightning illuminating the empty sky.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be free of fear is to be full of Love.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To find out that you are empty of emptiness is to die into an aware mystery, which is the source of all existence.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Spirituality does not require that you work hard toward achieving a result in the future as much as it requires you to be fully present, sincere and committed now, with absolute honesty and willingness to uncover and let go of any illusions that come between you and the realization of Reality.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Take one step backward into the unknown.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To awaken to the absolute view is profound and transformative, but to awaken from all fixed points of view is the birth of true non-duality. If emptiness cannot dance, it is not true emptiness. If moonlight does not flood the empty night sky and reflect in every drop of water, on every blade of grass, then you are only looking at your own empty dream.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Go ahead, climb up onto the velvet top of the highest stakes table. Place yourself as the bet. Look God in the eyes and finally, for once in your life, lose.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Life itself is nothing but relationship.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

My speaking is meant to shake you awake, not to tell you how to dream better.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our yearning for truth actually comes from truth.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is good to remember that the goal of Buddhism is to create Buddhas, not Buddhists, as the goal of Christianity is to create Christs, not Christians. In the same vein, my teachings are not meant to acquire followers or imitators, but to awaken beings to eternal truth and thus to awakened life and living.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No matter what identity we cling to, it takes great courage to step out of the old masks we wear and the old scripts that we live by, and open ourselves to the mysterious inner core of our being.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Love moves without an agenda. It just moves because that is its nature to move.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The intricacies of spiritual philosophy and theologies are just a thought within Emptiness.More Adyashanti Adyashanti [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
