Many people engage in spirituality with a grasping energy to acquire beliefs, attain experiences, or become somebody. Yet it is this seeking mind that actually prevents our direct perception of what we already are. In this enlivening satsang, Adyashanti reveals a different way of listening and perceiving that can help us recognize what doesn’t need to be acquired.
Quotes from this DVD:
“A meditative mind is at ease because it’s not trying to acquire anything."
"We keep trying to become somebody. It rarely occurs to us that ‘Whatever I am, I already am it.’”
“When you really experience what you are, which is nothingness, it is the most extraordinary fullness you will ever experience."
"Letting go of seeking-energy is the key to everything.”
