What are we really here for? In this profound and comprehensive satsang that includes a 90 minute talk and dialogues, Adyashanti begins with a revealing inquiry into the nature of birth, life, and death. As he points out, when we penetrate the mystery of these cycles, we can recognize the constant appearance and disappearance of things, and awaken to the infinite potential of nothingness that gives rise to each moment. However, he then emphasizes that it's one thing to realize this transcendent realm; it's yet another to give yourself completely to life and radically embrace every experience with the redeeming presence of love.
Topics Include: Touching Inner Silence / What Is Birth, Really? / The Moment Between Existing and Not Existing / The Potential within the Nothing / Death Is a Liberator / Throwing Yourself into Life / Living as Act of Love / Dealing with Awakened Energy / Orienting from the Heart
Quotes from this Download: “If you could return to direct perception, without distortion, you could see where you come from.” • “We are constantly being reborn." • “When you go to sleep at night, you get a break from yourself. Meditation, if done correctly, touches the same place.” • “‘Me’ is the sequence that sews one moment to the next, giving the appearance of continuity through time.” • “The transcendent orientation is that which wants to escape the world of time. The other spiritual orientation is when we come into living as an act of love.” • “Nirvana is not an escape; it is about the embrace of life out of love.”
