It’s all too common for people to get lost in the conditioning of mental states and become disembodied from their true foundation. Adyashanti offers practical guidance on how a committed meditation practice not only helps to orient to the ground of being, but more importantly supports the embodiment of one’s deepest spiritual realization.
“The essence of spirituality is embodied spiritual practice.”
“Let us all practice until we realize that we are the presence that is present.”
“Commit to an embodied practice; don’t just be a consumer. Spiritual ideas are useful to the extent that they spark insight from your ground of being.”
“If you haven’t found your foundation, then you’re left with what your old conditioning has told you. If you’re feeling lost, then your direction is being pulled about by conditioning.”
“Silence isn’t the absence of sound—it’s the source or partner of sound. There is no silence without sound or sound without silence. They are one thing.”
“Meditation introduces us to the underlying substratum of consciousness that contains deep spiritual virtues such as clarity, peace, compassion, and wisdom.”
