Adya Quotes and Excerpts

"Those who are free don't want anything. They don't want anything from their mind, they don't want anything from their emotions, they don't want anything from anyone and they don't want anything from life. They don't want anything. If you don't want, all that's left is an incredible sense of being free." (The Impact of Awakening)
"Be sincere; don't ask questions out of mere interest. Ask dangerous questions—the ones whose answers could change your life."

From "The Awakened Way"

Truth never explains why it's moving that way at that moment. And if you ask, it won't give any information. It would be like a leaf asking the wind, "Why are you moving that way right now?" The question doesn't make any sense to the wind.

tremble and fall

Student: Letting go of our egocentricity so we can experience awakening- do you suppose it is peeled off us the way we peel an orange?

Adya: Peeling is like having a dream at night in which you dream you are going to a therapist, and you start feeling better, and you feel like you are getting somewhere. Awakening is as if you are sitting on the couch telling your story, and you are still a mess… Then all of a sudden you realize this is a dream, this isn’t real, you’re making it up. That’s awakening…But the awakeness in you is not dreaming. Only the mind is dreaming. It tells itself a story and wants to know if it is progressing… when you realize it’s all stories, there can be this vast waking up out of the mind, out of the dream. You don’t awaken, what has eternally been awake realizes itself.
