How can we make sense of the self? In a revelatory hour-long opening talk, Adyashanti describes the self as a process, like the operating system of a computer. When we wake up, often our programming hasn’t yet come into full harmony with the way things really are, but we can learn to hook up the lines of communication between the timeless and the world of time so that our experience and expression reflect our deeper vision. Two call-in dialogues explore how to reintegrate parts of ourselves that have been disconnected from the truth of our being.
Topics Include: Self as a Process / Coming into Harmony with Reality / Where Identity is Born / The Solidified Self / The Truth of Nonresistance / The False Conclusion of Self / Linking to the Contemplative Heart / Inquiry and Stillness / A New Vision of What Is Real / A Deeper Integration
Quotes from this Download: “The basic substanceless substance of unreality is reality. The world of everyday affairs and the absolute are the same.” • “You get lost not by going too deep, but by ideas, images, imaginings.” • “The difficulty, the pain, the sorrow, are places where in a relative sense you felt the disconnection from the truth of being. When you reconnect them, then there’s flow again.” • “Now you can meet trauma with love, compassion, and understanding without disappearing into its story."
