Adyashanti Blood and Bones

Adyashanti Blood & Bones- quotes I dig from Adyashanti Enlightenment Deconstruction “Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretence. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” Enlightenment will not make you special “Do not ...

Gangaji Heart & Soul

Gangaji Heart & Soul- Quotes I dig from Gangaji Embrace Suffering (and see what happens) “We have tried everything to get rid of suffering. We have gone everywhere to get rid of suffering.
