Banyen's Description: 

In this “clear drink of sparkling water, straight from the source,” Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery of our essential being. In his 15 years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to change our lives.

In Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights that will “spark a revolution in the way we perceive life.” Available in CD or book format, here is a progressive inquiry exploring:

  • The human dilemma—the concept of a separate self and the choice to stop believing the thoughts that perpetuate suffering
  • “Taking the backward step” into the pure potential of the present moment
  • Why spiritual awakening can be a disturbing process
  • Intimacy and availability—feeling absolute union with every part of our experience.

In the same way that we fall into the arms of a loved one or drop our heads on the pillow at night, we can surrender into the beauty and truth of who and what we really are. Falling into Grace is an investigation into the core of why we suffer. It’s also Adyashanti’s invitation “to be taken by a moment of grace and fall into a sense of life when it is not separate from you, when life is actually an expression of something indefinable, mysterious, and immense.”

This idea of a book on the “fundamentals of spiritual discovery” became the organizing principle for a series of talks given over five days in the fall of 2009, in Los Gatos, California. These talks were then transcribed and edited... As you read, my recommendation is that you take your time and attend as much as possible to what is evoked within you, to the moments of realization, to what Adya calls “ah-ha moments.” In a sense, Falling into Grace is a transmission, a revealing of our true nature beyond any definition. Transmission is a heart-to-heart meeting in which we are directly shown, almost like the parting of a veil, certain truths about the boundlessness of being. The transmission occurs not at the level of the words, but at a feeling level, as part of a more subtle communication. The book is filled with pointers. The question is: Can we follow and fall into where the pointers lead? —from the foreword by Tami Simon
