http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti examines the common inquiry: Who am I?, and the common misconceptions that accompany it. Upon recognition of these unnecessary thought patterns, you can retire the old stories that encircle your mind and no longer serve you, and embrace the truth of your being. This brings to light the answers that have been ever-present, simply awaiting your acknowledgement. By paying attention to and trusting your own perception, the answers clarify themselves, and a new way of being emerges in front of you. Adyashanti reminds you that you need not wait for an answer, that all you have to do is explore the depth of your inquiry with sincerity and heart, to discover the answers that are ever-available and ever-present.

Quotes from this video:
“This is the primary misunderstanding: I am the one that is conscious. Instead of: I am the consciousness itself.”
“When you think about it, you can always find a self. Then you stop thinking about it, and it’s gone.”
“The reason that I can’t see myself as anything specific is maybe because there isn’t one there.”
“The door to liberation is seeing: No, there isn’t some little entity that is aware. There isn’t a little me in there. Awareness itself is aware.”
