Adyashanti

I just love Adya and I think he deserves his own forum.

Emptiness Dancing

Post by BillyPLed » Sun Aug 06, 2006 1:07 am

Just wanted to say that I am really liking Adyashanti's book Emptiness Dancing. I find it to be very powerful reading. It effects me much the same way as ET and Gangaji.

Hi, Jedeye, thanks for sharing that link.

One thing that strikes me is that Adya said in the video "if your beloved one come in and cut your body with a knife, that is ok". I had that distinct thought a year ago, that thought has several elements of letting go
1. no longer cling to this life form
2. no longer has conditioned anger toward someone who "treat me badly" after I treat them very well.
3. no longer cling to the need to expose someone who did "evil things"
etc

It was not a hypothetical thought, it was a real thought in response to non-stopping worrying that one of my loved one might actually hurt me. That thought was the most complete surrender, it was like a portal to peace in thunderstorm.

I thought about posting this thought on ET forum, but later decided to censor that. Hearing Adya say it on video was really freeing.

Interesting question Intel. What is it you seek?

Dunno, in another post someone said when you get enlightened sometimes you get quite agressive, and that some masters even hit their students. I don't like aggression and just wanted to know where Eckhart was on the chillout scale. Maybe there was some ego hidden in my statement aswel.

Adyashanti comes out of the zen tradition, which has some teachers who use the stick. I don't think he was exposed to that style, however. He certainly doesn't promote its use in waking others up. They are both very laid back. What's important is how they resonate with you in their approach to "this" which is sought.

I downloaded and watched some of his videos last night. I really enjoyed listening to him. Thanks for posting up the link.
