A Quote by Adyashanti on enlightenment, innocence, humility, awakening, ordinary, spirituality, and spiritual

Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special, it's not. If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred. I meet a lot of people who think they are enlightened and awake simply because they have had a very moving spiritual experience. They wear their enlightenment on their sleeve like a badge of honor. They sit among friends and talk about how awake they are while sipping coffee at a cafe. The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. I use the word enlightenment all the time; not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment.

A Quote by Adyashanti on awakening, quiet, freedom, self, enlightenment, and emptiness

When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, and your image of the world fades, and your ideas of others fade, what's left? A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are.

A Quote by Adyashanti on enlightenment, awakening, one, and reality

The aim of my teaching is enlightenment--awakening from the dream state of separateness into the reality of the One. In short, my teaching is focused on realizing what you are.

A Quote by Adyashanti on awakeness, secure, truth, enlightenment, and awakening

You must want to know the truth more than you want to feel secure in order to fully awaken to the fact that you are nothing but Awakeness itself.

A Quote by Aleister Crowley on faith, corpse, sleeping, awakening, all night, doubt, and virgin

I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.

A Quote by Marianne on life, awakening, hope, faith, marianne, and native american

This Road called Life.........


There is no destination on this Road.
It is constant awakening, and reawakening,
discovery after discovery.

Awakening is like waking up after a long nap
and feeling like you have been sleeping your life away;
caught in the mundane rituals of living.

The learning process on this road is never finished.
There is no Master degree, there is no certification.
There is only the point where we Cross over
to the Blue Road of Spirit
and look upon this life
and see the beauty and magnificence
of it in the Great Web;
Of the lessons learned,
and the Lives touched.
