Everlasting Suchness

Shiva

I absolutely love this quote from Adyashanti’s latest newsletter:

“Eternal life has nothing to do with time. It has  to do with now – everlasting suchness, everlasting existence, the reality beyond the veil of birth, life, and death.”

The Secret of Always Being Found

Adyashanti

Adyashanti

“One of the secrets of always being found (and this seems like a real paradox) is there must be a complete willingness to be totally lost.”

Absolute Cooperation with the Inevitable

Adya ♥

»Anthony de Mello said, “Enlightenment is absolute cooperation with the inevitable.” I love that, because it defines enlightenment not just as a realization, but as an activity.«

Infinitely Mysterious

Frangipani

This instant is infinitely clear, infinitely mysterious, and has an infinite capacity not to conform to our stories and reasons about why it is the way it is. Here it is, right now, this moment.

What Do We Talk About Then?

This is an excerpt that I transcribed from one of Adyashanti’s talks, where he speaks a bit about mutual meeting points and ‘being surrender’. It’s something that continues to feel relevant to me – this longing for real, genuine connections; a sense of intimacy and belonging expressed in the dimension of form, in the realm of human experience – and what he says here has a beautiful resonance.

“As human beings we want to communicate, we want to touch in, we want to connect with each other. And one of the things that people really have a difficult time adjusting with is literally how do I connect in with somebody who doesn’t see things the same way as I do? In what place do we have a mutual meeting point?

Emptiness Becomes Love

Adyashanti

“In the heart of a human being,
emptiness becomes love.
When we touch that Source,
instantly the love is present.
Literally, the divine becomes human
and the human becomes divine.”

The Restoration of True Perception

Oh no... Not you again!

My god, that's a beautiful mat!

I’m like one of them welcome mats that you have in your doorway. The idea of a welcome mat is that you step on it and you step over it and you go in the door. Wouldn’t it be silly if a neighbor came over and looked at the mat and said »My god, that’s a beautiful mat!« dropped to their knees and worshipped it for the rest of their lives? »This mat, this mat will take me in to the house, I’m sure!« Hehehe… »I know this mat will take me into the house; if I just love it enough, beg it enough or worship it enough or think it’s the best mat – better than all other welcome mats.« Meanwhile it’s at the doorway, right? The house is right there, you can walk in anytime you want. But no no no no no… I’ll worship The Mat. Hehe…

So, remember that the idea is receive the welcoming, that’s what the teaching is. It’s the welcoming. It’s like… go in this direction, look… this is the restoration of true perception, which is awakening. But it’s the true perception that is important. It’s realizing what we actually are.

Irrelevant, Actually

The ultimate freedom from the nonexistent ego is to see that it is actually irrelevant.
