Sounds True #ad - And for most of them, the question becomes: now what? “Information about life after awakening is usually not made public, ” explains Adyashanti. Used book in Good Condition. The end of your world is your invitation to join Adyashanti for an honest investigation of what you really are—and how to live once you discover it.

More and more people are “waking up” spiritually. But as time has passed, more and more people are coming to me who have already had glimpses of this greater reality. It is because of them that I am giving the teachings of this book. For some, the awakening is sustained over time, while for others the glimpse is momentary—it may last just a split second.

But in that instant, the whole sense of “self” disappears. The way people perceive the world suddenly changes, and they find themselves without any sense of separation between themselves and the world. It can be likened to the experience of waking up from a dream—a dream you didn’t even know you were in until you were jolted out of it.

Excerpt:   when i was a young child, one of the things I started to notice and ponder as I watched the adults around me was that the adult world is prone to suffering, pain, about seven or eight years old, and conflict. Even though i grew up in a relatively healthy household with loving parents and two sisters, I still saw a great deal of pain around me.

As i looked at the adult world, i wondered:  how is it that people come into conflict?   As a child, I also happened to be a great listener—some may even say an eavesdropper.
