I loved Falling into Grace. He clearly is similar in that he doesn't restrict himself to one 'book' or faith or teachings. He is interested in truth.
While somewhat deep for me, it was never a difficult read. It is thoughtful and useful while keeping the reader feeling light.
For today anyway, I can not help but be aware of my dualistic thinking and how to get beyond it daily after reading Adyashanti.
It probably won't happen anytime soon but I would love to attend one of his talks or classes as Adyashanti's style of writing reveals a wonderful personality and teacher if you look and feel between the lines.
Adyashanti is one of my new favorites.
I don't know if my spiritual journey is similar to anyone else's but if you heard anything in common in my intro, I'll bet you'll enjoy this book and hopefully, find it as useful as I have.
He covers a vast range of perspectives that all point to the same awakening. As with many of his talks, though he repeats himself often, I would find it challenging to outline his points and quote what he said.
This is to say that the experience of reading the book transcends the content itself. One is immediately transported to the living of it rather than the theory of freedom, his words constitute the path/technique/meditation in the moment.
He manages to make clear and simple what cannot be made clear and simple. Moving through words to that which cannot be described with words.
I experienced FALLING INTO GRACE as a meditation in and of itself.
I recommend this book to readers with an open heart, whether they’re on a spiritual path or not.
"What would happen if we were fully able to be with what is?"
"Conflict isn't inherent in existence. Existence is just the way it is..."
"As we begin to meet life as it is rather than as we think it should be, as we let go of our need to control and continuously interpret our experience, we start to open to life in a completely new way..."
Two-thirds of the way through, I switched to chop sticks and as I saw the end looming, I'd grasp each underlined sentence and chew it until I was sure I'd gotten out of them what the author intended. Toward the end of the book, I was picking my way through with one of those tiny hors d' oeuvres forks. I literally wanted to read each paragraph twice before going on to the next. Amazing book!
