In the same way we fall into the arms of a loved one or drop our heads on the pillow at night, we can let go into the beauty and truth of who we really are. On Falling into Grace, Adyashanti shares what he considers the fundamental teachings and therefore the most transformative for wherever we find ourselves on the spiritual path. Listeners join this sought-after teacher to explore the "disturbing" process of awakening, the concept of a separate self as the root of all suffering, and taking "the backward step" into the pure potential of the moment.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

When I was a young child, about seven or eight years old, one of the things I started to notice and ponder as I watched the adults around me was that the adult world is prone to suffering, pain, and conflict.  Even though I grew up in a relatively healthy household with loving parents and two sisters, I still saw a great deal of pain around me.  As I looked at the adult world, I wondered:  How is it that people come into conflict?

 

As a child, I also happened to be a great listener-some may even say an eavesdropper.  I would listen to every conversation that went on in the house.  In fact, it was a family joke that nothing happened in the house without me knowing about it.  I liked to know everything  that was going on around me, and so I spent a lot of my childhood listening to the conversation of adults, in my home and in the homes of relatives.  Much of the time, I found what they talked about to be quite interesting, but I also noticed a certain ebb and flow to most of their discussions-how conversations moved into a little bit of conflict, then back away from it.
