What actually awakens when we experience awakening? Adyashanti first describes how awakening involves a profound shift out of an egoic orientation that tries to navigate and control its way through life. He then reveals how the deeper sense of awakening is the direct realization of the Whole becoming conscious of itself. It is the Whole that functions through the individual rather than the individual becoming whole.
