Adyashanti: True Awakening

Transcript
0:00
but with the diner awakening
0:03
this whole world begins to collapse it says if we lose the whole world as we
0:08
knew it
0:09
and we lose our whole sense itself as we knew it
0:12
and at that moment whether that moment is just
0:16
a glimpse that moment is something more sustained
0:20
at that moment we realized suddenly in with the
0:23
with incredible clarity that what we are
0:27
is in no way limited to who we thought we were and very difficult to define
0:33
actually what we realize ourselves to be
0:36
in these moments awakening many people describe that many ways
0:41
some wood awaken to realize that they are awareness itself
0:45
some would say their consciousness it’s an
0:48
I often say you wake up and realize that you are spirit
0:53
in all things and all beings are spirit as well
0:56
but with each of these descriptions the mind creates another image
1:01
mine create another idea I’ve what this
1:04
all to the truth alternate reality must be
1:08
and as soon as these images are created they distort perception once again
1:13
so in truth its
1:17
really impossible to describe exactly what the true nature of reality is
1:22
except to say it’s not at all what we think it is
1:25
it’s not what we’ve been tied it is and certainly
1:29
we ourselves are nothing we could ever imagine ourselves to be
1:34
because what we are is literally beyond all imagination
1:39
what we are is that which is watching
1:43
watching as pretending to be
1:47
a separate person separate being what we are is that
1:52
which is continually partaking of all experience
1:55
but we really are is that which is awake
1:59
to each and every instant each in every moment
2:03
each and every experience in awakening which revealed to us
2:08
is that we are not staying or person
2:11
when entity what we are
2:15
is that which manifest as
2:18
all things all experiences all personalities
2:22
we are that Woods dreams the whole world into existence
2:26
from a mind held in a conventional view
2:31
with conventional ideas this sort of notion is
2:35
is fanciful it almost seems completely unreasonable
2:39
into such a mind you can never convince such a mind
2:43
that may be what they perceive is literally
2:46
being dictated by what they think because
2:51
a human mind in the human body is very much
2:54
like a computer we all know there’s a computer games
2:58
that there are based on virtual reality which means
3:02
you program the computer and it literally creates a whole world
3:06
and then if you’re in the game you going you play the game
3:09
in that world then that world has certain rules that how to run and how
3:13
it’s not runnin
3:14
how things happen in how they don’t happen and what the goals have that
3:18
world on with the purpose of that world is
3:21
in with the meaning of that world is but that whole world
3:25
is a virtual reality and in the same way
3:28
as human beings we get programmed this is called air conditioning
3:33
were in the ISE my collar Carmen in this condition is literally the way that we
3:38
are systems are programmed our minds are programmed our bodies our program
3:43
are senses in our perceptions are literally programmed
3:47
and part of that programming creates virtual-reality
3:51
it literally creates the world that we tend to see in perceived and it’s
3:55
certainly creates
3:57
the interpretation we make about what we see in what we perceive
4:03
and so sadly most people vast majority of humanity
4:07
we live their whole lives in
4:11
virtual-reality to live their whole life
4:14
basically from a reality that’s created
4:17
from their own imagination don’t think the world is a good
4:21
where the world is bad or people should be like is
4:24
where people shouldn’t be like this such-and-such shouldn’t have happened in
4:28
all the ways that our minds judge the world
4:31
and condemn the world in point fingers and grasp at it and push it away
4:37
all the ways that are mine gets caught in dualistic ideas
4:40
like lovin hate an anger
4:44
and jealousy and pushing and pulling
4:48
all these ways at the mine gets caught in fixated
4:52
are not only mental fixations are not only thoughts
4:56
but these thoughts in these beliefs literally give rise
5:00
to perceptions color the way we see things
5:04
and so very quickly in our lives as we grow up
5:08
we literally taught to proceed ourselves as being separate from
5:13
others we’ve talked that we are essentially
5:16
and in the deboers remove ourselves that we are different from the world
5:21
did we in the world are two different things
5:24
that our neighbor our parent or a friend or even a dog or cat
5:28
are essentially something other than what we are
5:32
well on their surface if things
5:36
there is obvious difference between a human being in the cat
5:39
or apparent in a child her mother and a daughter
5:43
on the surface it things there are certainly differences
5:47
in yet these differences obscure
5:50
underlying reality an underlying reality which is really
5:55
what gives birth to the spiritual longing
5:59
because this underlying reality
6:02
always functions within us have an intuition
6:05
were longing for connectivity
:09
for for union to heal this
6:13
imaginary split it’s very important to understand
6:18
that this split between oneself and others oneself in the world
6:22
is purely imaginary it’s been perceived
6:26
only because our minds have been top to perceive that way
6:30
are thinking along lines in which colors our perception
6:35
but there are times there are moments
6:39
when this whole virtual-reality almost cracks
6:43
I can a cracking analyze comes through that crack
6:47
and at that moment when consciousness
6:51
opens to something else it’s as if
6:54
I spirit our consciousness escapes this false in confinement
6:59
virtual-reality virtual self in a virtual world
7:04
and at once recognizes awakens to
7:08
or perhaps more accurately literally remembers
7:13
because this is what spiritual awakening is it’s really a remembering
