In this clarifying satsang, Adyashanti distinguishes between the fluidity and flux of consciousness and its objects, and the constant, changeless presence of awareness. Then, in responses to emails and phone questions, he discusses how to abide in the sense and feel of awareness, what happens to consciousness after death, and the shifts and changes of perspective in one’s spiritual unfolding.
Topics Include: The Flux and Flow of Consciousness / Awareness Is Constant / Engaging the Depth of Your Own Experience / Surrender and the Plateau Phase / Simple Intuitive Regard / Problems of Upward Moving Energy / Consciousness and Deep Sleep / Sensitivity to Our Own Agenda / Respecting Others’ Suffering
Quotes from this Download: “When you go deeper into the nature of consciousness, it becomes all-inclusive.” • “Consciousness and the flow of experience are actually one happening.” • “When you die before you die, it’s extraordinarily free and liberating. From that point on, there’s no more fear of death or anything at all. You see that birth and death are actually happening every instant.” • “You can’t make awareness into an object. Awareness can witness consciousness, but awareness cannot see itself.” • “Even our lostness and confusion has its own dignity. It’s the discomfort that is the greatest evolutionary force for our awakening.”
