http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores the nature of insight and how it spontaneously arrives as the moment unfolds. Without depending on the thinking mind and by setting the foundational groundwork of having a clear mind, you bring your native intelligence to bear and invite insight into your realm of being. Adyashanti points to recognizing what the moment calls for which keeps each moment afresh and anew with vibrant vitality.

Quotes from this Video:

“Insights are often an expression of a clear mind — they come from nowhere, they’re not deductive, you didn’t connect all the intellectual dots. Insights are usually when you’ve rattled around in your brain long enough and all of a sudden something relaxes or you give up and you’re gifted.”

“Each moment calls for its own knowing, its own intelligence, its own revelation, and its own love.”

“In a certain sense, it is a leap of faith to let go and to discover that there is an amazing intelligence that is within the structure of a quiet and clear mind.”

“The revolutionary, brilliant beings are very often people who have access to insight.”

Nonduality teacher Mooji describes what the nature of the Self, your real nature, is. It is closer than you are to yourself. It is your natural state. Listen to Mooji’s pointings and come closer to that which you really are – pure consciousness.

‘Mooji (born Anthony Paul Moo-Young) is a spiritual teacher / nonduality teacher, originally from Jamaica. Mooji is a disciple of the renowned Advaita master Papaji, who himself was a devotee of the advaita and non-dual master Ramana Maharshi. Mooji shares self-inquiry, directing his students to the non-dual Self by encouraging them to question who or what they are at the deepest level. One well known exercise is to identify the natural feeling ‘I am’ or ‘I exist’ and staying with this for 5 to 7 minutes at a time. Another is to come to the recognition that everything (thoughts, emotions, sensations) can be perceived, and then inquiring, “Can the perceiver itself be perceived?’

http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores the immensity of silence that permeates every moment. In the midst of immense noise, by noticing how quietness permeates each and every layer of existence, you can allow yourself to rest in this foundational silence. As you rest, without the energy of grasping or pushing away, you can access a deeper dimension of being. Adyashanti invites you to notice the silence that lives within every moment and experience the totality of each moment.

Video Excerpted From “Purity of Being”(DVD #64):

Quotes from this Video:

“In the midst of all this noise — whether it was the wind, the rain coming down beating on the roof and the deck outside, or the talk that she was giving — I started to notice that that moment was permeated with this great stillness, this immensity of quiet.”

“When I spontaneously listened to the whole of it, this other intuitive sensory organ opened up and I could hear all of it — the words, the rain, the wind, the silence. Nothing was preferred, nothing was being grasped at, nothing was being pushed away — all of it had equal value.”

“We are conditioned towards what is obvious, glaring, and noisy — whether it’s something on the outside or something on the inside. We’re not so much taught to value things that aren’t noisy — the things that aren’t trying to grab our attention.”

“Silence is the deepest teacher, it’s the deepest teaching — that’s what gives you access to the deeper dimension of being.”

http://adyashanti.org – Who do you want to blame? Who do you want to withhold love from? Who are you so resentful and bitter towards that you would never want to express your love towards them? Adyashanti opens up a doorway into self-knowing, where you can explore where you are withholding love in your life. By holding up the torch of truth to your interactions and releasing your arguments with yourself, others, the world, and God, your world is dramatically transformed — your daily activities become more inclusive, and you begin to embody your awakening more fully.

Quotes from this Video:

“Step outside of everything you think you know.”

“The entire internal world — when you’re not thinking about it — just stops.”

“Doubt is powerful. Not the kind of doubt that makes you feel small and diminished and afraid to move, but the doubt where you see, ‘My God, the whole way that I have myself, and everybody, and everything hooked up in my mind may be nothing more than a thought. A persistent thought, but maybe nothing more than that.’”

“This is the kind of doubt that not only allows us to begin to experience the dimension of being but actually releases it into experience.”

“To be really awakened is to have no more argument with yourself, no more argument with the world, no more argument with others, and no more argument with God.”

“Reality is the ultimate bait-and-switch maneuver. It costs nothing to wake up, however it costs everything to stay awake.”

2017 03 26 Temecula Dialogue with Francis Lucille 3


Amoda Maa Jeevan brings to light the process of opening ourselves to the darkness of suffering in order to awaken from the dream of separation.

In this talk, Amoda Maa invites you to consider that the darkness we encounter in our personal lives and in the world is an volutionary driver for awakening out of the dream of separation. Very often, awakening or enlightenment is imagined to be a spontaneous transcendent state that leads to eternal bliss and peace. But what is often missed is, that if awakening is to be more than a temporary state, we are called to meet every vestige of inner darkness and that this is an ongoing journey that can happen either before or after awakening. It’s an invitation to open to all previously unmet contractive energies based on an erroneous perception of separation.

Inner darkness is where we hold on to inner division; it’s a blind spot with incredible power: the power to create suffering in ourselves and in the world. Amoda invites you to meet this suffering consciously, and then to choose to open wider than this suffering. Conscious suffering is the decision to walk with resolute presence and unadulterated openness through every inner and outer landscape through Heaven and Hell and to recognize what is true beneath and beyond all appearances.

In conscious suffering, every step is a crucifixion and a resurrection. It’s a death of the archaic mechanism of ego and a rebirth into the light of who you truly are. When this light is seen in and as the heart of everything, a real transformation of consciousness takes place. As the Indian saint Neem Karoli Baba, said: “I love suffering, it brings me closer to God.”

http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores the human and divine qualities of life, how your humanness is an expression of divinity, and how your humanness and divinity are intimately intertwined. By extinguishing any attempt to avoid or transcend anything in your experience, an opportunity presents itself, and a fuller embrace of life becomes available to you. Adyashanti reveals how your revelation of the interlocking nature of humanness and divinity can be the catalyst for you to radically embrace all of existence.

Video Excerpted From “Jesus: Unifying Human and Divine”:
http://bit.ly/2dDIRf8

Quotes from this Video:

“This kind of surrender brings with it a kind of redeeming quality. It has a sense of being restored to your natural condition — not because you’ve left your humanity — but because spirit has completely embraced it.”

“This is the gift of the whole story. It is the descent of spirit into the world of time and space, whereas other stories are the awakening of spirit from time to the eternal. This is the eternal descending into time.”

“When you wake up, it tends to take you into emptiness. Yes, it’s an extremely full emptiness, but it’s an emptiness nonetheless — the emptiness of pure consciousness.”

“The story is giving voice to our divinity, and finding the divinity not just outside of humanity, in the unborn space of emptiness, but finding the divinity right in the world of form — and through a complete embrace of life as it actually is.”

“So to do this you’re embracing everything that it is to exist, which is the triumph and the tragedy of it. It is not a movement of seeking to avoid it, and it’s not a transcendent movement necessarily.”

“It’s a radical embrace of everything. It’s a ‘yes.’ It’s a leap of faith, and that brings the experience of redemption. Suddenly, you’ve discovered the completeness within everything. You’ve discovered the grace within the chaos.”

“Something within us reaches out for both of these kinds of graces — the transcendent grace and the grace within the human existence. Both of these are yearned for within the depths of our being. “

Question and answer from a talk at the Nondual Wisdom and Psychology Conference 2017 – California Institute of Integral Studies.

Gabor was born in Communist Hungary but escaped after the failed 1956 uprising. Travelled on foot to Italy and then lived in a refugee camp for a time in Italy before reaching Canada. Became a multi-millionaire very quickly but then found he was miserable and depressed when he realised this outer success didn’t bring him any real happiness.

‘I had achieved outer freedom but was far, far away from inner, real freedom.’
The market crashed and he lost almost everything. Lived in a forest for a time, ‘I wanted to say NO to civilisation.’ Moved to Mexico and then started to experience, real, deep, suicidal depression. Moved in with an Indian tribe in Ecuador, ‘it was there I found that I could not just sit and BE like the Indians.’
‘This suicidal depression became my greatest teacher.’

He discovered the secret to finding real freedom was going inside his body, ‘Whenever I was able to do it I became calm and my mind would stop. I spent much time sitting by the water and experimenting with grounding my body to the beach. There were moments when all of a sudden the sound of the waves became different and the mind was so still that there were hardly any remnants of the depression. I would get up and start walking and the sand and the water on my feet felt unlike it had ever felt before. This marked the beginning of the end of depression’

After a time he was able to surrender to his ultimate love – presence – the silence of nothing where the mind takes a back seat and becomes the servant and the original being is once again on the throne….
He now helps people free themselves from thought addiction.

http://adyashanti.org – During one of his silent meditation days, Adyashanti leads this guided meditation that focuses on stillness, listening, and using your breath as a guide. By sitting down for meditation, you are accepting the commitment to just be still. As you rest into your being and your body rests into stillness, your mind can adjust to this new environment and relax into its true nature. From this depth of stillness and deep listening, your natural state of awareness is recognized as always available. Adyashanti invites you into this state of deep availability to notice the already existing stillness that underscores every moment.

Video Excerpted From “Silent Meditation Day Vol. 1 – San Anselmo Mar 2016”(ID #614):

Quotes from this Video:

“Meditation is the art of listening.”

“If the body remains still, the mind will eventually follow.”

“Take a few minutes to attend to the breath. If there are any places that are holding tension, just notice it, and invite those places to relax.”

“The breath is an anchor point. Think of it like the ballast on the bottom of the boat. A place in you physically between heaven and earth.”

“Because the breath is always there, at any point during the day or any point during your meditation, you can bring attention back to your breath.”

“There is a state of already existing stillness. It’s not something you make happen, it’s simply something that you notice.”

“Your own natural awareness is already and always in a state of allowing everything to be as it is.”
