We like to think we operate from the rational mind, but most of the time we are being run unconsciously by the conditioned mind. In this eloquent talk, Adyashanti brings to light the various layers of consciousness that we encounter along the spiritual path. Guiding us through subtle aspects of conditioned and unconditioned consciousness, he ultimately points us to the sacred void which transcends all existence.


“Most human beings are full of cyclic patterns of conditioning—action and reaction.”

“Direct forms of spirituality always and predominantly point out the unconditioned consciousness immediately, and their whole aim is to break the mind’s rigid fixation on its false identity.”

“What you are is already what you really are. There is no approaching it. There is no becoming it. There is no getting ready for what you’ve always already been. So strictly speaking, there’s no path to it. If there’s any path at all, it is the destruction of every idea you’ve ever had about yourself.”
