In this satsang, Adyashanti begins by encouraging us to shift our attention away from the content of our experiences to the natural ground of being in which all experiences occur. He then describes many of the subtle qualities of this fundamental reality, and follows with guidance on not only knowing our true nature but living it.
Topics Include: The Ground of Being / The Nature of All Experiences / Qualities of Our Fundamental Nature / Knowing vs. Being Who We Are / The Meaning of Nirvana / Being Stuck in Emptiness / Leaning Into Life
Quotes from this Download: “Your mind happens within the ground of being—it is not the ground of being itself.”
“There is just as much of a necessity to die into formlessness as there is a necessity to die back into form. . . . Most people of a spiritual bent are afraid of living as well as dying.”
“Bloodless enlightenment is not the common experience; waking up can be a bloody mess.”
