Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of mindfulness and spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery of our essential being. In his many years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to initiate this awakening. In Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights that will spark a revolution in the way we perceive life-through a progressive inquiry exploring 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 mindfulness and spiritual awakening can be a disturbing process; absolute union with every part of our experience and true autonomy-the unique expression of our own sense of freedom.
“Adyashanti affirms that we make the journey to realization not by separating from the relative reality of our everyday lives, but precisely by developing an attitude of complete acceptance and openness toward all situations and emotions and all the people we encounter.”
-Reginald A. Ray, author of Touching Enlightenment
“Falling Into Grace is a dazzling, clear, profound book-a cool drink of water for thirsty hearts everywhere.”
– Geneen Roth, author of Women, Food, God
“The path to enlightenment today is cluttered with concepts: Adyashanti cuts through them with a sword so merciless and tender that only space remains.”
– Meg Lundstrom, author of What to Do When You Can’t Decide
