Overview

More and more people are "waking up" spiritually. And for most of them, the question becomes: now what? "Information about life after awakening is usually not made public," explains Adyashanti. "It's most often shared only between teachers and their students." The End of Your World is his response to a growing need for direction on the spiritual path. Consider the book you hold in your hands Adyashanti's personal welcome to "a new world, a state of oneness."

Adyashanti begins by describing the "I got it/I lost it" phenomenon that perplexes so many of his students-the fluctuation between what he calls "nonabiding" awakening and the ultimate state of "abiding" enlightenment. With straight talk and penetrating insight, Adyashanti then points out the pitfalls and cul-de-sacs that "un-enlighten" us along the journey, including the trap of meaninglessness, how the ego can "co-opt" realization for its own purposes, the illusion of superiority that may accompany intense spiritual breakthroughs, and the danger of becoming "drunk on emptiness." "Full awakening comes when you sincerely look at yourself, deeper than you've imagined, and question everything," teaches Adyashanti. The End of Your World is your invitation to join Adyashanti for an honest investigation of what you really are-and how to live once you discover it.
