What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as a means to a goal they never reached.
Very Nice, Different and Refreshing

Exactly what I was looking for
I found this to be so helpful in guiding me through the never ended array of possible ways to meditate. I’ve been meditating for years but yet somehow I never really got the true purpose. This helps me let go of preconceived notions on what I ‘should’ be doing and why.
I read some of the less glowing reviews before I listened to it, and now having experienced this audio I can reflect on why one might not love Adyashanti’s take on mediation. If you are looking for someone to tell you exactly what to do, and how to do it with a step by step plan, given in a linear fashion then this may not be for you at this time. That’s just not his style of teaching, now that I’ve read many of his books and have been to his lectures in person. But don’t be mistaken, I still think this teaching on mediation is extremely potent when you are ready for it.
