Do you ever notice that you never think yourself into moments of revelation? Adyashanti explores the importance of having a foundation in your spiritual life that is not based on words. Listening beneath the words and ideas, there is a quiet, still space of awareness that is always available. Relaxing into this foundational stillness allows for moments of revelation to find you.

Video Excerpted From “The Full Aliveness of Being”:

Quotes from this Video:

“It is important to have a foundation in your spiritual life that is something other than words, ideas, and spiritual philosophies.”

“Be still means to stop interfering with what’s happening.”

“You’ll be amazed that when you have a little bit of foundation of being quiet now and then, that you can listen to anything from a much deeper place.”

“When you are listening from that deep place, that’s not trying to acquire anything, it’s a very pregnant ground. It’s a place where moments of insight – that’s where they come from. Moments of insight come from that place of silence.”

Devaji details his path to removing egoic concerns, answering questions about Shakti Transmission and letting go of beliefs and thought

This talk was recorded at Science and Nonduality Gathering in Titignano, Italy in 2016. 

Jac O’Keeffe experienced a spontaneous, inner awakening in 1997. Her third eye opened, and her life dramatically changed course. She left a successful career pioneering community arts policy at the national level in Ireland to begin a substantial, healing practice, which progressed into residential retreats that explored the spiritual causes underpinning clinical depression. 

In 2003, she closed her practice, left her Western lifestyle, and eventually moved to India. Intense spiritual practice led to a two year period without thoughts. Spiritual wisdom developed, and Jac now guides others in her teachings and publications to transcend dual and non dual perspectives, and prepares spiritual teachers for liberation. http:// www.jac-okeeffe.com

Adyashanti explores the intimacy that emerges from the unified, lived experience of undifferentiated being. Within this unified field of being — which is beyond the concept of a merged state — an uncaused sense of well-being and love takes hold, and lets you experience the sorrows and the joys of life in a very intimate way.

Published on Jul 7, 2017http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores how to move through existential fear, and reminds us that even in the midst of this fear, you can simply stop, be still, and relax in the knowledge that you will let go when you are ready to. This letting go can be a loving act that you bring into the world. By opening up your circle of regard to all beings, your letting go takes on a benevolent quality and affects all those around you.

Video Excerpted From “In the Face of the Infinite”

In this 11 minute video, Mooji helps us to remember that recognizing the “Self” only involves the dropping of ALL concepts 

including concepts like Karma which only applies to the body/mind, and so many other thoughts and beliefs that the mind tries to place in the way to try to ensure its own survival as a separate entity.

http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores the infinite intelligence of the fundamental reality that often escapes our acknowledgement until we return to the absolute. As certain aspects of yourself fall away, a creative intelligence emerges, and a new level of being becomes available to you. Adyashanti invites you into this space of infinite intelligence, creativity, and love—that was there all along.

Video Excerpted From “Returning to the Absolute Source” (DVD#58):

Quotes from this video:

“When you come upon this infinite, pregnant void, it’s a non-experience. It’s the ultimate and final return to the absolute.”

“Once you’ve taken this journey to nowhere—because it doesn’t actually go anywhere—it’s a journey from here to here. From kind of here to really here.”

“This chair and this microphone are nowhere near as solid as the beliefs in your head. Most of you aren’t going to die for a chair, but we human beings have a way of being willing to die and kill for our ideas.”

“The whole idea in this spiritual awakening is not to eliminate anything—we spend way too much time trying to eliminate certain things. Certain things fall away and eliminate themselves, mostly attachments.”

“The fundamental reality has an unimaginable infinite intelligence, and an infinite creativity, and an infinite love. They naturally pour forth from this

by Adyashanti: There is no easy road to enlightenment…

Enlightenment is a destructive process.
It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier.
Enlightenment is the
crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing
through the facade of pretense. It’s the
complete eradication of everything we
imagined to be true.

– Adyashanti
Make no bones about it, awakening is not a walk in the park. It is a ride through hell. It is the tearing down of all of your cherished beliefs and everything you thought about yourself. There is no way around this. In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, they had to enter into the Mirkwood Forest to get to their destination. There was no other way for them. It was not a walk in the park. Likewise, we must enter the shadowlands, and come face to face with our shadows. It is there that our false ideas of who we are are shattered. It is there that all of our false beliefs are destroyed. We must face these false notions and see them for what they are. This is the only way to heal, to become whole again, to live in integrity.

My good friend, Julie Anne gave a good description of this process in Enlightenment. It is a complete surrender, a process of brutal self honesty. It is a path of complete acceptance of the truth, no matter how difficult it is to bear. I still remember it vividly.

We go through life with so many false notions – of the world, of spirituality and of ourselves. We build up masks and we believe the facades. It’s all a charade. It is all based upon illusions and deceit. We deceive ourselves at every moment, and the world also deceives us at every moment. We live in perpetual cognitive dissonance, justifying the most absurd things in our minds. We constantly lie to ourselves…. and we believe it.

To awaken to the truth that you seek, you must tear down the lies.

But we are too attached to the lies. We want to hold on to the illusions and to become enlightened at the same time. That is not possible. But there are hundreds of phony gurus and “spiritual teachers” that will tell you it is. They offer you processes to become happy, fulfilled, calm, find your soulmate, be positive, get the right job, make lots of money, balance the chakras, become healthy and whatever else you may be desiring. This has nothing to do with awakening. This is only polishing the ego. They all lead you right back into the matrix. You may even be lucky enough to get a golden cage, but it is still a cage, and you remain imprisoned in slavery. This is the road that most people choose to follow. This road is well traveled by the herd.

The road to truth and freedom
It takes courage, discernment and self honesty to walk the Siddhartha road to truth and freedom. Not many people have that. We have been weakened by the onslaught of programming since our childhood. Most people want to remain in the herd, as they find comfort in the company of other deluded souls. It takes a certain individual to break free of the herd. The Siddhartha road is not easy. It is a treacherous road that will shatter every part of your existence. No, it takes a certain type of person to walk that road; a person that is willing to give up everything to find his true Self.

My story was one that took me through so many paths to nowhere; detours, dead ends and off of cliffs. I had to eventually be dragged, kicking and screaming through the abyss by Grace herself, for me to awaken. It was simply my time.

Now the strange thing about this, is that worse things have happened to me before, so why did this hit me so hard? I believe because it was supposed to, for me to transform. I took everything much harder, than I ever did before. Also, everything came crashing down at once. In the past, I was strong, and I kept my sense of self, of who I thought I was. But this time, my sense of self, who I thought I was, gave up. I stopped trying to be strong. I just collapsed.

Published on Jun 8, 2017http://adyashanti.org – Adyashanti explores the innate yearning human beings have to experience life through the heart. While isolation and loneliness are common feelings that arise and can cause you to feel estranged from the world and yourself, your heart intuitively perceives a deep unity with everything around you. Adyashanti invites you into this profound connection with your heart and all that surrounds you.

Video Excerpted From “The Awakened Heart” (DVD #88):

http://bit.ly/2sYVODF

Quotes from this video:

“There’s an innate yearning in human beings — whether they know it or not — to actually perceive and experience through the heart.”

“Where do you experience happiness? It begins in the heart. If it’s a deep and profound happiness, you can feel it in the bottom of your toes to the top of your head.”

“We ultimately experience unity through the heart, as an intuitive way of perceiving.”

“The heart is like an antenna, it’s what in many ways connects you to everything around you.”

“On some level or another, everybody is perceiving through the heart.”
