It is both an art and a developed skill to integrate two of the most fundamental practices of contemplative spirituality—meditation and inquiry. Adyashanti explores how these two practices complement one another and are more powerful when performed together. He shows how employing meditative self-inquiry can take you to the source of your inner experiences and awaken you to the truth of your being.
“To live with a question is an underappreciated art and skill in spirituality.”
“If you understand that a question is meant to redirect awareness to a deeper dimension, then it can be immensely effective.”
“Spiritual inquiry is redirecting your attention outside from your thoughts to the source of them.”
“Meditation is letting your attention sink into what you’re usually not consciously aware of.”
“The deepest dimension of spiritual awakening is when the Source of being becomes conscious—when that which wasn’t conscious through you suddenly becomes self-aware.”
