In helping us to discover the nature of true emptiness, Adyashanti responds to emailed questions with a focus on encouraging us to see that this is already our natural state. He untangles the common fears and spiritual concepts that can block us from clearly recognizing our deepest nature.
“True emptiness is actually full and rich and artful—open minded and open hearted. There’s a lightness to it and there’s a joy to it. Because you’re empty, you don’t have all this stuff to defend inside.”
“Don’t think of just letting everything be as it is as an endpoint. We have to disengage from our resistance, our judgment, our narrative—all this sort of egoic nonsense that we impose upon the moment.”
