Awakening is when our sense of Self wakes up from being contained within the limited ego structure and suddenly becomes aware of the immensity of Self. Adyashanti explores what it truly means to “look within” and points out common missteps made when entering this awakening inquiry. He also illuminates the awakening process of going beyond ego and into the infinite immensity.
“What spiritual awakening is all about is awakening from the ego to the Self.”
“The Self is an immensity. The ego is an infinitesimally small part of the Self. There is no experience of a limitation or edge to the Self. When it is experienced, it is boundless. It’s called the fundamental reality.”
“When the Self begins to move within you, there is no ambiguity that you are being acted upon. You, as an ego, are being acted upon by something that is completely beyond the ego.”
“The true spiritual impulse is something that comes from outside the ego.”
“Embodiment is a continuance of awakening.”
