Awareness is more who we are than everything we think we are. Adyashanti illuminates how we can more consciously embody our spiritual practice and recognize the awareness that always exists within the content of all experiences. By dedicating time to silence and engaging with the immediacy of awareness, we can notice the timeless gap of presence within every moment.
“Spiritual practice is an engaged and embodied form of spirituality.”
“Our foundational spiritual practice, as I see it, is some dedicated time to silence.”
“Simply by acknowledging awareness, there is this simple shift from the content to the context. All it requires is an internal loosening, a relaxing.”
“You don’t have to focus to find awareness, because it’s not a particular experience or a particular thought. It’s the aware space in which all the thoughts arise.”
“In the gap that's not listening to a thought, if the gap seems to disappear and you get addicted to thought again, just notice the gap and live in that quiet, aware space.”
“The most spiritually useful thing is to start right where you are with your own immediate experience.”
“Stillness and quiet are experiential by-products of recognizing awareness.”
