1. Excerpt: The End of Your World
[view PDF]

Description

More and more people are waking up spiritually. And for most of them, the question becomes: Now what? “Information about life after awakening is usually not made public,” explains Adyashanti. “It’s most often shared only between teachers and their students.” The End of Your World is his response to a growing need for direction on the spiritual path. Consider this Adyashanti’s personal welcome to “a new world, a state of oneness.”

Adyashanti begins by describing the “I got it/I lost it” phenomenon that perplexes so many of his students—the fluctuation between what he calls “nonabiding” awakening, and the ultimate state of “abiding” enlightenment. With straight talk and penetrating insight, Adyashanti then points out the pitfalls and cul-de-sacs that “un-enlighten” us along the journey, including the trap of meaninglessness, how the ego can “co-opt” realization for its own purposes, the illusion of superiority that may accompany intense spiritual breakthroughs, and the danger of becoming “drunk on emptiness.”

“Full awakening comes when you sincerely look at yourself, deeper than you’ve imagined, and question everything,” teaches Adyashanti. 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.

Adya writes with beautiful simplicity and a high level of compassion for the human condition. He gets it across effectively that the Natural State is everyone's birthright. Adya is perhaps the most encouraging and supportive teacher I have encountered i.e. among those speaking and writing about enlightenment, personal growth and the pursuit of happiness.
COMMENT: THE SHIPPING BOX WAS HUGE ... MUCH BIGGER THAN THE PRODUCTS WITHIN IT. EITHER PACK THE PRODUCTS INSIDE SNUGLY WITH SOME FILLER OR USE SMALLER BOXES.

Very impressive! Adya does a good job of explaining what the experience of "enlightenment" is really like. Not exactly a bed of roses. There should be more books like this, that tell it like it is and don't romanticize it. Like old Joseph Campbell said, the madman and the mystic enter the same waters; the difference is that the madman is floundering and the mystic has taken swimming lessons from a good guru. In a pinch, books can serve that function, and this is one of them.

This book is sooooooo completely helpful in my awakening and what pitfalls to watch out for after the initial experiences of the nature of reality! Really exposes so many mind tricks and blocks to the experience of ABIDING Truth. This book both humbles and clarifies. I am most grateful to Adayashanti and all those who echo the Truth always. Namaste.
