In this stunning online satsang, Adyashanti swings the sword at the heart of what keeps us from being awake and staying awake. He emphasizes the importance of the kind of inquiry that cuts everything out from under you. "Nobody wants to have their belief systems torn apart, yet simultaneously we're all called to something much deeper." This satsang begins with an hour-long talk followed by dialogues with callers.
Topics Include: Perceiving Without Filters/The Force of Yearning and Discontent/Inquiry from the Neck Down/Taking the Mind Apart/Wanting the Ego to Die/Conscious Agreements with the Universe/Integrating at a Gentle Pace/Not Wanting to Be Here/Responding with Fluidity
Quotes from This Download: “'What do I really know with absolute unequivocal certainty?' This becomes a very powerful spiritual tool, a spiritual path in a sense."
"We have to have a real yearning toward the real, but also the courage to see what’s not real."
"If we are to really wake up, we’re only going to wake up right through the middle, through the heart, of our belief system. This takes courage, intention, openness, and integrity. That desire, that yearning, is what pulls you through."
"When things just become quiet, let them become quiet. Let stillness come when it wants to be still. All the questioning is just meant to open the mind up. Just experience that quiet vastness."
