Adyashanti offers an important foundation for understanding his teaching in this clear and practical talk. Describing the two ways of utilizing awareness when “looking within,” he makes an important distinction between the two types of self-knowledge. He also advises, “When you look within, throw out all authority figures, including me. You have to be completely 100% with your own experience, not chasing somebody else’s experience.” The satsang continues with heartful dialogues about bridging the gap between the relative and the absolute.
Topics Include: Knowing Yourself / Intimate Looking Within / Awareness of the Heart / Disorientation After Awakening / Giving Up Control of the Mind / Thought and Awareness / The Double-Edged Sword of Mind / Bridging the Gap of Relative and Absolute / The True Dawning of Love / The Power of Silence
Quotes from This Download: “What bridges this gap is love. That’s the bridge. Your absolute nature is in love with the relative.”
“There is no greater solvent than absolute nature expressing itself as love through the human heart.”
"If you’re quiet enough and rest deeply enough, wisdom will start to arise."
"The dawning of Self-recognition is the end of isolation, the end of separation, the end of feeling cut off from life, from others. It’s to know the heart of all beings."
"Never think that any part of your life experience is a mistake. You’re being called to find out what’s real and true."
