Publisher's Summary

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 and expression of our essential being. After 15 years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to initiate this awakening.

On Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights to "open ourselves to that mysterious element that enters in the hidden and quiet moments and sparks a revolution in the way that we perceive life." Wherever you may be on your own spiritual path, you will find in these sessions down-to-earth guidance on breaking the trance of ego, experiencing the raw energy of emotion, cultivating inner stability, transcending the world of opposites, and more.

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 a program that gets to the core of why we suffer, and allows us to explore 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."

Highlights:

  • 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
  • True autonomy - the unique expression of our own sense of freedom

Very spiritual and helpful

This book really helped me with acceptance of "what is".. Even when "what is" seems unfair and horrible, it's part of reality and it helped me learn to be more accepting snd happy regardless of what may have happened in the past or whatever may happen in the future.
I loved it.

Outstanding and Transformational!

Outstanding narration. Melodic and easy to listen to. Absolutely best understanding and description of the value of recognizing and separating from the ego that I have read. Excellent for first time introduction to eastern philosophies.

Soul Food

After reading one of Adyashanti's books, I immediately used an audible credit to listen to this book. Adyashanti has a soothing voice and comes across being quite genuine and vulnerable with his message. I'm new to this type of spiritual thought, but I sought it out after having a sudden, mind opening experience that I could only call "enlightenment". Adyashanti's work is among the very few that I could find touching on this subject. His work doesn't simply feed the ego some spiritual promise or fraudulent riff raff which is rampant in spiritual self help books, no. His works are quite grounding and tell you about his own accounts with enlightenment and losing one's ego. The process is very gradual and humbling. Listening to him is like having a personal guide or friend who can help you see some contentment in where you're at right now. I think the focus of this text was humbling experiences that lead to the conclusions of spiritual enlightenment, sort of letting go of expectations and wants and just embracing what is. Overall, I would suggest this to anyone who is interested in personal development on the spiritual side.

Great monologue on Adyas own experience

I like this audio program because Adya speaks of his own experience mostly and not too much on others. He has a calming voice so it's great to listen to then fall asleep

If only everyone could hear

There but the grace of God go I. What a blessing of each of you would take a few hours and listen to this recording.

I would love to hear from you if you do.

There is nothing wrong with where you are, and nothing less than wonder with where you can go.

This recording points to key portions of the journey.

I had an awaking

Through this cd I had an awaking i strongly suggested. Since this cd I am a diffrent person I am more compassionate I found my spirit my true self and I don't act from labels or agreements that I have conceived over the years.. It is a great cd to know the truth that your not your thoughts or story and to act from a higher purer self .

Listen to this before anything else

Would you listen to Falling into Grace again? Why?

Adyashanti has a wonderful way of describing things that can't be understood by the ego and logical mind. His voice is soothing and peaceful. This book covers everything. I gained more insights into my existence from listening to this than the hours reading or listening to other books on 'awakening' and spirituality.

What did you like best about this story?

All of it.

Any additional comments?

Listen. From a place of no-mind. Accept it. Let it be. Peace and love.

I’ve been spoiled by Eckhart Tolle
Nobody does it better. Same old stuff very informative but constant waffling without any silence in betweenjust doesn’t take you into stillness the same
Nice for falling asleep to, but more silence please ! Xxx

Truly excellent

An excellent and beautifully narrated teaching by a zen master.
This book will challenge everything you thought was true but was actually just a false representation of the world by your flawed mind. Be prepared to become enlightened.

Deeply profound

This is something I feel If I had read even one year ago, I wouldnt have understood it. So its a book that requires openess and a willingness to let go of your own ego.

Everyone should listen to this

I Very much enjoyed these talks by Adyashanti.
I am very new to Spiritual thinking, I have been studying A Course In Miracles for about 2 years now. I found all the same ideas and concepts in this audible book as are in ACIM. I think my understanding of the goal of the spiritual journey was made a lot clear, which seems to be to have no goal and except what is. It's to see past the words to the feeling and sensation that comes from them. I found Adyashanti voice very beautiful, there was a peaceful clarity to it which was very restful to listen to.
I would highly recommend this book and I will be listening to it again soon. Enjoy.

A great introduction to this great contemporary

Adyashanti is a wonderful, straight down the middle contemporary spiritual teacher!
this offering is a "gentle" one, it's concise and fundamental and I recommend it as the perfect introduction to Adya and his dharma! Enjoy!
