This 6-download set includes all of the Q&A sessions with Adyashanti and retreat attendees during the October silent retreat at Omega Institute.
Please Note: The Talks and Guided Meditations from this retreat are available for purchase separately (see related items below).
Q&A Session Topics Include:
“Spirit is a conscious nothing. But that doesn’t mean it’s not here. It’s the nothing that recognizes itself. It sees itself in everything.”
“The point isn’t to remain in unity consciousness. In the end, the point is to have a foot in both worlds of unity and separation. Our mind likes absolutes, either ‘I am separate’ or ‘It’s all one,’ but actually it’s all collapsed together.”
“What if I did one act today that expresses what I value in life?”
“Spirituality is not just an inside act; it is relevant to the extent that we can express it in our lives.”
“What do I want my embodied relationship to challenging times in the world to be? If we don’t ask the question, then fear or ideology is going to dictate how we respond.”
“There is a deeper experience of being where ‘I am anything’ just disappears.”
“Humanity isn’t the place to find utter perfection.”
“Enlightenment is not a state of being; it is That which is the ground of all states of being.”
“The foundation of all experiences or states is not in and of itself an experience or a state.”
“Inquiry is to get you to the place of not knowing.”
“Don’t assume that when you get lost, nothing is happening.”
“Any sort of painful or traumatized part of our being needs a safe and benevolent presence, and it needs us to be listening to it.”
“Soul and ego get transformed through their encounter with the absolute. Ego gets transformed by what soul brings back with it.”
“Even if ego empties out, it still needs to be functional. Ego needs enough health and cohesion to embody the deeper spectrums of being.”
Recorded in Rhinebeck, New York on October 5 - 12, 2018.
