Adyashanti: Seek after the source of the yearning itself

 

Do not seek after what you yearn for, seek after the source of the yearning itself.

The end point is already at the beginning. That’s what we call the direct path. You don’t have to get to silence. You simply have to realize it’s there. You don’t have to get to openness. You simply need to realize it’s already there. You don’t need to get to freedom. You simply need to recognize that it’s already there. You don’t need to get to no-self. You just need to recognize that there isn’t one there to begin with. You don’t have to get to the divine. You simply have to recognize that it’s the only thing that’s going on already. That’s called the direct path. It’s a direct experiential introduction to the view. The key is that it’s got to be experiential.
