“Half of the practice of spiritual inquiry is to take you to silence instantly. When you inquire, ‘Who am I?’ if you are honest, you’ll notice that it takes you right back to silence instantly. The brain doesn’t have the answer, so all of a sudden there is silence. The question is meant to take you to that state of silence that is not manufactured, where thinking or searching for the right emotional experience fails.”

“What do we run away from more than silence? Many of us would rather cling to our ideas, our beliefs, and our opinions - the very things that distance us from truth and reality and life - than to experience this silence. We spend so much energy running away from silence, but silence is the ground from which awakening springs. It’s the ground from which we shift out of this egoic state of consciousness, out of this belief in separation. After all, separation is ultimately just a belief. It’s a story made up in our minds.”

"When fascination with the me dissolves, when it simply no longer holds center stage in your awareness, then all that remains in the absence of the me is revealed."

"Just a moment, a split second of true availability is all it takes.
That's where spirit gains it's entry, and that moment
is the moment of awakening."


-from "Resurrecting Jesus" by Adyashanti

"When we respect the natural cycles of life
we find that each of life's stages has a spiritual dimension"

“Your true nature isn’t quiet; it’s quietness. It could also be called nobodyness or nothingness. When you come to the true quiet, you have transcended quietness.”

It is love alone that gives worth to all things.

St. Theresa of Avila

Your greatest aid is your sincerity and desire for Truth above all else. You may be shocked over and over again by the depth of illusion that you find and uncover within yourself, but never fixate on it or judge yourself.

Accept, forgive, and move on, for your true being is infinite and absolute. It exists as much now as it ever did or ever will. Stand still in the sacred conflagration of inquiry and let it open you to the seat of all wisdom born of Spirit.

Only Truth will survive; all else will perish.

I'm a big Adya fan so I'm loving the quotes, naturesflow and Miss H (I read 'Resurrecting Jesus' recently and loved it), so thanks, ladies :smile:
