The Doorway to Now

Human beings are storytellers. The stories we tell of ourselves are always about the past or the future -psychological stories are about the past while spiritual stories are about the future. Yet what are we without stories of the past or future? Pointing directly to the truth about now, Adyashanti invites us past the revolving door of our stories and into the great abyss of the ever-present unknown, where freedom resides.


“The first thing you notice when you let go of the past and you let go of the future is that all of a sudden you don’t know who you are anymore.”

“Freedom never happens in the future—freedom only happens now.”

“What is it that notices the arising and the ending of anything? We could give this all sorts of names, but what’s important is to have a direct realization of it because it is the reality of you, and the reality of you is the reality of us.”
