The ego is a searching machine, constantly seeking either to escape the dissatisfaction in life or to reach some experience of God, reality, or nirvana. However, in all this searching, the ego’s bluff is the assertion that what is being sought isn’t already here. In this powerful, yet warm satsang, Adyashanti encourages us to see through the struggling, truth-denying, and conditioned perception of ego and acknowledge the greater unconditioned consciousness that is always in the open.
Topics Include: How Dissatisfaction Can Open Us / The Great Awakener / Realizing “I Don’t Know” / What’s Always in the Open / Acknowledging Unconditioned Consciousness / The Arrogance of Shame
Quotes from This Download: “The greatest thing you can do spiritually is the active acknowledgment that consciousness is already here. As soon as it becomes an act of acknowledgment, the whole egoic bluff is blown.” • “The one place people won’t look is in their own looking.” • “If you see something with judgment, you haven’t really seen it at all.”
