Adyashanti – The Fluidity of Truth


Published on Jul 14, 2016

http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti invites you to engage with the moment fully and welcome in a feeling of openness and fluidity, while letting the moment guide you towards its natural fulfillment. You can let go of any need to hold onto your realizations, while simultaneously realizing that there is nothing to let go of. Adyashanti points out that every state has its inherent limitations, so step away from rigid definitions, re-examine our definition of Truth, and open up to the infinite ways that reality presents itself.

Quotes from this video:

“It’s not that you’ve found a greater, more majestic perspective, it’s about completely relinquishing your hold onto even the greatest realization. There’s a freedom from feeling you have to be in any particular state. And that’s even more free than permanently being in a great state — because every state of being has its limitation.”

“There’s truly nothing to hold onto. And also, there’s nothing to get rid of. From the ego’s perspective it’s all rather disappointing.”

“There’s something deeper. There’s an absolute fluidity of Truth and Reality. There’s an inexhaustible variety of ways in which Reality can display itself.”

Tree – Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview


“The spiritual journey does not consist in gaining what a person does not have, but in dissipation of ignorance concerning himself and life, and the growth of understanding which begins with spiritual awakening. To find God is to come to one’s own self.” – Avatar Meher Baba.

No longer the person with its conditioning and history, here now there is only this and the overall feeling is “I don’t mind.” No fear, no push, a great emptiness that is also a rich and all-pervading fullness. Here there is silence, peace and an exquisite sense of joy. Here it feels so light there is no distance, ‘marinating in the self.’ It is as if nothing is happening here yet happening graciously unfolds.

To look back at the dream, the necessary mistaken identity, it seemed like so much happened. Personhood was such psychological suffering. Separation, a feverish, fearful struggle, always restless, dissatisfied, looking outside for love and fulfillment. Now peace, and love reside here.

I have spent thirty years with Avatar Meher Baba in deep devotion. Baba has administered his kiss and his kick, expertly unraveling the ego identity. Longing for the truth and with nothing more to express in this life, I knew I was going to die, not sure if it was the body or the ego, I completely surrendered.

Shortly after, whilst watching Mooji on the net, he pointed, and I said with total conviction, “I am That”. In that recognition I hysterically and uncontrollably laughed for hours. When I could hardly breathe from the laughter and I asked God to help me, the laughter only escalated. The funniest thing, the divine joke was that I knew I had always been that.

I love Meher Baba and Mooji – the brightest reflections of the true self I know. It is quiet here as I experience the bliss and love of the self.

Adyashanti : The Enlightened Shoe

Actually, all paths lead away from the truth..how’s that? All paths. There’s no such thing as a path to the truth. The truth’s already here, where are you going?

Watch Eckhart Tolle Explain What Karma Is, What He Thinks Of Facebook, And His Definition Of God

by Eckhart Tolle: During a Q&A session at one of his retreats this past summer, Eckart Tolle was asked by an audience member, “No matter how much karma you create in this life — the life we’re all living right now — is liberation possible?”

In essence, the take-home message of Eckhart’s reply could be summarized as “The mind is our obstacle, not the past.” You can watch Eckhart’s reply in full in video #1 below. Eckhart also answered a similar question in a 2011 newsletter in which someone asked, “You talk about Presence and Being as the keys to enjoying form, and creating positive circumstances, or softening circumstances. How does karma fit into all of that?” Eckhart’s reply was the following:

“Everybody is born into a certain external environment. Also, everyone is born with certain predispositions — they may be partly genetic, they may be other things. A person is born with certain patterns, in other words. We don’t need to examine where they come from, but the fact is that a human being is born into a certain environment. It may be violent, or it may be relatively peaceful. A person is born with inner patterns that you inherit. Even painbody is partly inherited.”

“Karma is partly collective, and partly personal. You can only understand karma not as an abstract subject external to yourself, you can only understand it by observing yourself, and then you know many other things. If you want to understand karma, you need to look at yourself. I began to understand what karma is when something arose that was not part of karma at all. Here is the key — the arising of consciousness, or Presence, or spiritual awakening, is not part of karma. It is another dimension that breaks into the karmic realm. You do not become awakened by accumulating, as they sometimes say in the East, “good karma”. That’s fine on this level, you can make the walls or furniture in your prison a little more comfortable, but there’s something totally from beyond karma, that can come into your life at any point.”

“There’s a whole set of conditioning that happens when you come into an environment.
The environment conditions you further, and there’s no choice involved — it’s just influences.
You find yourself in this world with certain unconscious patterns that have become the conditioning of who the person is. Karma, as I see it, is the unconscious conditioning that runs your life.”
