Living Beyond the Known

and the Resolution of Suffering 3 MP3 Download 4 hrs. 17 min. $25.00

Our human capacity to know and understand gives us an incredible ability to create the workings of the physical universe. And yet this same capacity can also be an incredibly destructive force, not only to other beings and the environment, but also psychologically in terms of one's repetitive patterns of suffering and the ways that we interpret our experience—both past and present.

But beyond the known, lies a realm of being that uproots suffering by its very roots and opens the door to a whole new way of experiencing life. In this download set from the November 2016 Spirit Rock Intensive, Adyashanti explores how this new dimension of being is radically different from what we are used to and is the dharma gate to liberation.

Topics Include:

  • Removing the Filter of the Known
  • Benefits and Limitations of Knowledge
  • Curiosity for the Unknown
  • The Unknown Quality of Others
  • Seeing Behind Our Beliefs
  • Directly Experiencing Beingness
  • Reconnecting with Innocence
  • The Great Unknowing Knowledge

Quotes from this Download Set:

“We’re not just living in the unknown, we are the unknown.”

“As soon as you turn your awakening into the known it becomes diminished.”

“We often go to religion to save us from the anxiety of the unknown.”

“It’s imperative to access a wisdom within ourselves that the acquisition of knowledge doesn’t give us.”

“Meditation is an intentional entry into the unknown.”

“Psychological suffering comes from how the mind imagines something that it knows.”

“The unknown is the doorway to liberation.”
