"Until being is restored to its rightful sovereignty, we are sleeping walking through life, all the while imagining we are awake. Until being is restored, the radiance cannot shine, light cannot come into the world. And no matter how much we may accomplish, it all takes place in the realm of unconscious being." - Adyashanti
The first task of spirituality is to awaken to being, the source and substance of our existence. Yet, awakening not only opens the door of realizing our existential reality, but also inspires the possibility of functioning from that reality in the world of time and space. In this 4-CD album recorded live at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Adyashanti explores how we can restore the sovereignty of being to its rightful place—the fundamental ground from which we live and act.
