The Simplest Thing

Adyashanti points out that the hardest thing in spirituality is to stay with the simplest thing. Complexity is only created by the mind. When we dwell in our own innate consciousness with one-pointed intention, we find extraordinary inner depth. This warm and humorous talk includes dialogues about spiritual cul-de-sacs, the loss of meaning and passion, and transforming our relationship with the thinking mind.

Quotes from this Download:

“When all of your identity is residing in what you really are, that’s enlightenment. It is simple enough. When your identity isn’t mixed up in all sorts of things that you’re not, then there’s that effortless abiding in unified awareness.”

“When you go through some challenge, if you’re really paying a great amount of attention, you realize that what you were before the challenge, what you were during the challenge, and what you were when the challenge has passed is pretty much the same thing.”

“Spirituality is about spirit, things unseen. It isn’t things hoped for and wished for and all sorts of religious myth-telling. That’s spiritual divergence.”
