Seems crazy from a teacher who talks about letting go of thoughts and things as being very important. Posted on August 21, This book helped get me through my mother's funeral. The night before, I was wondering how I would get through the eulogy without breaking down. Then I read his section about playing with "not knowing".
I immersed myself fully in this exercise, being totally present without jumping into a future thought. What resulted was complete peace. The whole day flowed seamlessly.
Posted on June 22, Yes, I love Adya but i do have a question. I thought this was going to be an audio book is there one? I guess i got confused because the art work is the book cover. Posted on June 5, Very insightful and helpful. Posted on April 7, This is a wonderful program. Really impactful because he goes to the real source of what keeps us from experiencing happiness.
See a Problem?
Posted on April 2, The content is great but I have to admit I didn't finish it because I found the voice of the narrator really hard to listen to, it just irritated me. Wish I'd bought it as a paper or e-book rather than audio. His ideas are wonderful but not in this format for me Posted on March 9, I find Adyshanti difficult to listen to because his voice is rather monotone.
I'm sure there is much wonderful material in this program, but I still have not listened to the whole thing.
Sounds True - Falling into Grace
100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE
It came to me at a time when I most needed it, and that too as a gift. Adya writes about suffering, and enumerates its causes -- one of them being this constant struggle we have with WHAT IS. I am trying to apply Adya's teachings in my life. In fact, I have even started wordless meditation. No thoughts at all.
The silence feels peaceful. It has made me touch base with my inner being and trust the higher guidance. This is one of my most favourite books and I would recommend it to all my GR friends. When you are on the path of understanding yourself and the Universe, you need books like these.
You need books that you may not understand fully. You need books that make you realize the vast unknown boundaries of Life. You need books like these that make you question the questions and answer the answers.
You need books where you learn that pain When you are on the path of understanding yourself and the Universe, you need books like these. You need books where you learn that pain is a consequence of life but suffering is an option. You need books where you can take a deeper breath during your meditation and find in the breathing the openness that you knew you had all along. You need books like these that point to the space within you and the cramped room in our mind. Sometimes, you just fall into graceful books. Apr 30, Elyse Walters rated it it was amazing. I re-read it many times!!!
His writing is soooooooooooooo lovely!!! Dec 02, Magdalena rated it really liked it Shelves: I'd say this is a good one to start with if you haven't read or listened to much of Adya's teachings before. Not as great as Emptiness Dancing, but still good! It's a beautiful book; full of relevant and clear pointers, all expressed in Adya's familiar, compassionate and heartful style.
Falling Into Grace: Insights on the End of Suffering
However, for me personally it's not really plunging deep enough into the aspects I would have like it too After reading his previous book The End of Your World - which truly touched and illuminated my heart i I'd say this is a good one to start with if you haven't read or listened to much of Adya's teachings before.
After reading his previous book The End of Your World - which truly touched and illuminated my heart in more ways that I could possibly say - I realise I was hoping for this book to penetrate even further in the same directions I'm still enjoying it, just not in the same deep and intimate way I enjoyed some of his earlier ones. One of the best spiritual books I have ever read. It all starts with you.
Just try to shut up your mind. Really memorable - some new ideas for me. May 27, Lance Willett rated it it was amazing. All of a sudden we wake up to the fact that the entire way we viewed our lives was just a very thin veil that obscures the greater reality. I learned that by not being in conflict with life, I can discover stillness and stability. By relinquishing control, and not closing myself off from life, life itself becomes a meditation, "We know intuitively that we have begun the process of going beyond the way we viewed life in the past.
By relinquishing control, and not closing myself off from life, life itself becomes a meditation, and a whole new relationship starts to unfold. Something more mature, something that develops and grows within us as we become more spiritually mature is not a freedom from , but a freedom to. Like this book and the auther, i like how he illustrate his journy in spirituality. Have very usefull insights. Mar 05, Michelle rated it it was amazing. One of my favorites, I have read several times including reading to my husband.
His teachings, his persona, his words, his voice, his presence, his caring and loving nature, his peace, his humor, his downtoearth-ness, his smile, his grace. He may not always be all of this, but that is how I know him. From the YouTube videos and the satsang I was lucky enough to attend, here, in Copenhagen where I live. This was my first book with Adya.
And I've got to admit: I prefer him live. Or as close to it. I missed his voice, his laugh, and the way he speaks his words I love Adyashanti. I missed his voice, his laugh, and the way he speaks his words that goes right to the core of me and that I carry with me, as reminders. Much of what was said in this book I've already discovered for myself, so I didn't have many revelations. The brick wall image stuck with me.

- Car les hommes sont meilleurs que leur vie (French Edition).
But there are some of the YouTube videos and the satsang that has had more piercing impact on me. Nevertheless, Adya is a teacher whose words and wisdom and presence reach me, deeply and profoundly, just by being close to them, I'm reminded of all this, that lies in me, in the universe. And that makes me better able embrace Life and What is. And that is a gift for which I'm grateful. I listened to the audio version of this book before reading the actual text. Adyashanti speaks freely from a profound depth that resonates with his every word. He covers a vast range of perspectives that all point to the same awakening.
As with many of his talks, though he repeats himself often, I would find it challenging to outline his points and quote what he said. This is to say that the experience of reading the book transcends the content itself.

One is immediately transported to the living I listened to the audio version of this book before reading the actual text. He manages to make clear and simple what cannot be made clear and simple. Moving through words to that which cannot be described with words. Falling into Grace one of the best books I've ever read to date.
While every page is deeply insightful, there's a section as well about transmutation; about welcoming reactions when you have a reaction. I loved realizing that you can't get rid of something like fear or anger for example. But you can transmute it. And to "do" that you're not really doing anything but surrendering to what is, and then whatever reaction is present naturally transmutes itself to its higher ess Falling into Grace one of the best books I've ever read to date.
And to "do" that you're not really doing anything but surrendering to what is, and then whatever reaction is present naturally transmutes itself to its higher essence in its own time. Falling into Grace supports me in my practice of awakening, presence and surrendering. To me, it's not a "read once" type of book, but a great wealth of awakening energy on each page.
