The Awakened Nature of Being

The Awakened Nature of Being
Retreat Talk by Adyashanti


2 Audio CD ~ 1 hr. 29 min.
© 2016 by Adyashanti.
$16.00 Item:#2TAN

What is the fundamental perception that emanates from the awakened nature of being? What keeps this realized view hidden? In this powerful and direct retreat talk, Adyashanti guides you experientially past the primary misunderstanding of self and the ever changing ways the mind focuses attention. By bringing greater precision to self-inquiry, we open to the vast lens of awakened awareness and the true unity of being, which is constantly expressing itself simultaneously in form and formlessness.

Topics Include:

  • The Misguided Search for Enlightenment
  • Relaxing Attention into Boundless Awareness
  • The Direct Perception of True Nature
  • Gaining Precision with Self-Inquiry
  • The Persistent Delusion of “Me”
  • Spiritual Failure
  • Trusting the Discovery of Nothingness
  • The Risk of Transcendence
Quotes from this CD:

“The door to liberation is seeing there isn’t some entity inside that’s aware -- awareness itself is aware.”

“The boundless nature of awareness is a constant. There’s nothing you can do to create it; there’s nothing you can do to get rid of it.”

“Awareness functions fine without thought, like a heartbeat functions without your consent.”

“We miss the fundamental realization because we go on a search for something. It’s not the search that’s the problem, it’s the way we search.”
