The ultimate trick of egoic consciousness is to try to get beyond ego. Yet the more you try to get beyond it, the more you get caught up in it. In this enlightening talk, Adyashanti reveals the real meaning of "allowing everything to be as it is." He shows how this teaching, when understood fully, offers a way to go beyond the egoic state.


“A great way to be really caught in the dream state is to try to get out of being caught in that dream state.”

“You can’t think your way out of thinking. You can’t think your way out of mind. You can’t think your way out of ego. Neither can you ego your way out of ego—you can’t judge ego and expect to get out of it.”

“Your mind thinks that it’s the job of the infinite to answer all of its questions. It’s not the job of the infinite to answer all your mind’s questions because the truth is most of your questions have no answer.”

“When you realize there really aren’t answers to most of your questions, there is an explosion within consciousness, and that explosion is the seeker disappearing. In the wake of that is immense intelligence.”
