When the ego is "annihilated," it's like a dream at night that ends; it wasn't real in the first place. In this elucidating satsang, Adyashanti demonstrates what happens when we face the annihilation of the ego that never was, and awaken to the infinite that always is. He follows with meaningful call-in dialogues about the energetic connection in relationships, unlocking the trance of despair, and how to wisely share the truth that unfolds within us.

Quotes from this Download: “Love doesn’t live in the known.” • “What 'separation' really means is the perception of a boundary line. The mind creates a boundary and points to what’s inside the boundary and what’s outside of it.” • “What’s being annihilated is something that never was.” • “The unknown you’re afraid of is the unknown that you are. The vastness you’re afraid of is the vastness that you are.” • “Real freedom is the freedom from the demand to feel good all the time.” • “It’s not the ego that becomes happy; it’s our true nature that’s free from our idea of ourselves.”
