Sounds True – The End of Your World
Return to Book Page. It doesn’t define us, it has no center. Uncensored Straight Talk on the Nature of Enlightenment. Part of allowing the whole world to wake up is recognizing that the whole world is free—everybody is free to be as they are.
The End of Your World: Uncensored Straight Talk on the Nature of Enlightenment
Life becomes almost magical. Life begins to enr, and you never know where it will take you. Someone asked him to define his experience of enlightenment. Enlightenment is when everything within us is in cooperation with the flow of life itself, with the inevitable.
When you look deeply into this question, it actually destroys your world. It destroys your whole sense of self, and it’s meant to.
The End of Your World Quotes by Adyashanti
You come to see that everything you think you know about yourself, everything you think you know about the world, is based on assumptions, beliefs, and opinions– things you believe because you were taught or told that they were true.
Until we start to see these false perceptions for what they really are, consciousness will be imprisoned within the dream state. Of course, the core of this fear is that most people know intuitively that if they were actually truthful and totally sincere and honest, they would no longer be able to control anybody.
When we see and perceive that we are the totality of life, we are no longer afraid of it; we no longer feel afraid of birth, life, and death. But until we see that, we will see life as intimidating, as a barrier we somehow have to get through. We are simply acting out of deep programming. But once we have seen the true nature of things– once Spirit has opened its eyes within us– we suddenly know what we’re doing.
There’s a much more accurate sense of whether we’re moving or speaking or even thinking from truth or not. When we act from a place of untruth anyway, in spite of our knowing, it’s much more painful than we we didn’t know our actions were untrue. When we say something to someone that we know is untrue, it causes an inner division that is vastly more painful than when we said the same thing and thought it was true.
We start to realize the ordinary is extraordinary. From the very beginning, there was only nirvana, as the Buddha would say.
But we were misperceiving things. By believing the images in the mind, by contracting through fear, hesitation, and doubt, we misperceived where we were. In that moment, inquiry is your spiritual practice.
To avoid this practice is to avoid your own awakening.
And the thought was: What people usually see, if their experiences are real, is what needs to be seen, what needs to be freed. Most of the past lives I saw yiur moments of confusion, moments of unresolved karmic conflict. It just makes no sense, coming from the true nature of things. What makes more sense is to ask how you unenlighten yourself. What is still held on to? What is still confusing?
What is it specifically that has the power to entice consciousness back into the gravitational field of the dream state? At the moment of awakening, it was as though I was completely adyashantu who I thought I was. There was a vast, vast, vast emptiness.
In that vast emptiness, in that infinite emptiness, there was the smallest, smallest, smallest point of light you could imagine. I could go into each one of them and see a totally different dream of self and a totally different world that was being dreamed as well.
There were certain confusions, fears, hesitations, and doubts that were unresolved in particular lifetimes. In certain lifetimes, what was unresolved was a feeling of confusion about what happened at the time of death.
Seeing this lifetime and the confusion at the moment of death, I immediately knew what I had to do. I had to rectify the confusion and explain to the dream of me that I died, that I fell off a boat and drowned. When I did this, adyashxnti of a sudden the confusion from that lifetime popped like a bubble, and there was a tremendous sense of freedom.
Many past life dreams appeared, and each one of them seemed to focus on something that had been in conflict, something that was unresolved from a different incarnation. I went through each one of them and unhooked the confusion. I could have been walking across the living room floor for five hours, but I was, literally, just walking across the living room.
I know it sounds odd. When I talk about them at all, I talk about them as past dreams. I dreamed I was this person; I dreamed I was that person. Nonetheless, the experience I had happened. adyqshanti
All I know is what happened. Not only a resolution there, but also a resolution now.
The End of Your World
Because anything that was unresolved in one of those dreams was unresolved now. Being aware of past lives is not a necessity. There was a relatively short period of time, a few months, when I had these kinds of experiences happen occasionally, and since then, every now and then, but not with any great consistency.
