Quotes of Adyashanti

Enlightenment is perceiving not through the lens of ego. It is not an unending satori experience, unending awakening experience. This misunderstanding will create more Tail chasing then it is dreamed possible.

It is not the quality of "aha" that will sustain because it will not sustain itself. Next week you maybe going to have another "aha" that is bigger.

True practices or useful spiritual disciplines, if there is any, is a way not fueling the egoic consciousness.

The liberating truth is not static; it is alive. It cannot be put into concepts and be understood by the mind. The truth lies beyond all forms of conceptual fundamentalism. What you are is the beyond—awake and present, here and now already.
To be here, all you have to do is let go of who you think you are. That’s all! And then you realize, "I’m here." Here is where thoughts aren’t believed. Every time you come here, you are nothing. Radiantly nothing. Absolutely and eternally zero. Emptiness that is awake. Emptiness that is full. Emptiness that is everything.

Adyashanti


Isn't that beautiful; "Emptiness that is awake. Emptiness that is full. Emptiness that is everything"....the Emptiness that is vibrating aliveness...full of everything. Nothing is missing.

Yes, beautiful.

However, "it is not an...unending awakening experience" can be misleading. I don't know exactly what Adya means to say here. I've heard some quote this as saying unending awakening is not possible and others (like me) point out the "unending...experience" part as the real factor.

Thank you for the quote.
