Dedicating this broadcast to emailed questions, Adyashanti offers pointers that help illuminate subtle distinctions and facets of the awakening journey. He particularly explores not only realizing the essence of what we are but living the wide expanse and wholeness of our true nature.
“The feeling of ‘I am’ isn’t something we’re constructing with our thoughts and our minds. It’s underneath that.”
“Don’t think awakening is a one-off deal, or that what you realize in some moment of awakening is absolute…you might have that forever in your hands, but the more you grab hold onto it, the more it’s going to die on the vine.”
“A mature realization is almost defined by the breadth and the expanse of the inclusiveness of what and who we are. What and who we are becomes so wide that in the end you can’t really define it at all. Because all definitions end up being partial…the final destination is wholeness. And wholeness is undefinable.”
“Our true nature is something we live.”
