From the Inside Flap
What would happen if you allowed everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the fourteen years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as "an end instead of a means to an end." What he ultimately realized was that only when you let go of all techniques - even the concept of yourself as a meditator - will you open to the art of True Meditation, dwelling in the natural state. True Meditation invites you to join the growing number of seekers who have been touched by the wisdom of Adyashanti to learn:
- How to make the "effortless effort" that will vivify the present moment
- Meditative self-inquiry and "The Way of Subtraction" - how to ask a spiritually powerful question - and determine the real answer
- Two guided meditations on CD intended to reveal what Adyashanti calls "your home as awareness itself
"We've been taught that awakening is difficult," explains Adyashanti, "that to wake up from the illusion of separation takes years. But all it really takes is a willingness to look into the depths of your experience here and ow." True Meditation gives you the opportunity to reclaim the original purpose of meditation - as a gateway to "the objectless freedom of being."

His other books are great but I did not find this Meditation book that inspiring.
Thank You Adyashanti.
Do two things to find your innermost nature:
1) Surrender to your experience while maintaining meditative awareness.
2) Use your whole self to analyze what you are not in order to observe what you are.
The author strips away all the fluff to drive straight towards the heart of the matter.
The rest is all internalization.
I recently went to see him at a one-day retreat. The dude is for real! A true teacher. The clearest light I have ever seen.
Since reading this book about two years ago, I have purchased most of his other ones and have been carried to beautiful and caring spaces.
Thank you, Adya, for listening to Source.
