The Removal Project

“But enlightenment is a demolition project. It simply shows you that everything you ever believed was true isn’t. Everything you take yourself to be, whatever your self-image is – good, bad, or indifferent – you’re not that. Whoever you think others are – good, bad, or indifferent – is not true. Whatever you think about God is wrong. You cannot have a true thought about God, so all of your thoughts about God tell you precisely and exactly what the divine is not. Whatever you think the world is tells you exactly and precisely what the world is not. Whatever you think about enlightenment is also precisely and exactly what it’s not. Do you get the flavor of it? It’s a removal project. What does it remove? Everything.” Adyashanti in Emptiness Dancing

SoulBEarth Adyashanti Truth awaken awakening stillness Christmas tree lightI haven’t been writing much lately because it’s felt like time for more silence. And because, like you, I don’t really know what’s going on. So, I’m just letting the mystery be. If all thoughts are wrong, what is true? Enough words. Only stillness knows.
