Wer weiß wovon Adyashanti hier spricht wird dieses Buch lieben und viele Aha Erlebnisse daraus mitnehmen. Was passiert nach dem Erwachen, was sind die Fallen und Herausforderungen? Hier spricht jemand der klar fühlbar durch diesen Prozess gegangen ist. Das Buch war für mich nur in kleinen dosen zu genießen, aber genau darum geht es: Integration einer essenziellen Erfahrung.

This clears up a lot of misconceptions we have about enlightenment and what it really means to be enlightened. Adyashanti does a very good job of stripping away a lot of erroneous beliefs we have about the subject and he simplifies it so that it sounds so so ordinary and accessible to anyone who wants it - although he does say time and time again that there is nothing really to get from enlightenment because it is our true state anyway. He says that the egoic state is the altered state and enlightenment is the unaltered state. I found the book The One: Finding Reality & The Awakening of Spiritual Awareness was a good companion with this since it also brings to life what adyashanti says - that at the end of all the seeking, we only find what we really already are and always have been!

Adyashanti has the gift of communicating important insights in simple and lucid language. And most important: he speaks from the vantage point of lived experience.

Adyashanti taucht mit diesem Buch als ein Reisegefährte auf. Er ermutigt, Störungen beim Awakening zu nutzen und ihnen auf den Grund zu gehen. Hinter dem spirituellen Üben existiert weiter das Leben selbst und hält uns den Spiegel vor. Das authentische Hinterfragen jeder Störung, die wir im Spiegel sehen, schaffe die Möglichkeit, Bindungen und Blockaden aufzulösen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I wish I'd read this book sooner 25. Mai 2009
Von Niki Collins-queen, Author - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Adyashanti helped me better understand why the life-changing effects of a spiritual awakening in my early 30s eroded over time. He calls it the I got it/ I lost it phenomenon. Had "The End of Your World" been available years earlier I may have avoided many of the pit-falls that un-enlightened me. The trap of meaninglessness, how the ego can "co-opt" realization for it own purposes, becoming drunk on "emptiness" and the illusion of superiority.
Because I've experienced increased energy and memory lapses it's reassuring to learn that physical and energetic phenomena often accompany awakening. Adyashanti says it's common to experience a new influx of energy as the egoic structure dissolves and to have memory lapses as our consciousness releases the mind. I, fortunately, did not experience the other symptoms of insomnia, heart palpitations and body movements. He says these normal transformational energies "re-wire" the mind and lead to a clearer and deeper perception of reality.
Adyashanti says real awakening happens when the seeker and the seeking has dissolved. When we're no longer fueled by "what do I want" and "what don't I want." The hallmark of a true awakening is the end of seeking. There's no longer a need to seek love, approval, success, money or even enlightenment. We realize the entire structure of a personal worldview and a personal self is nothing but a dream in universal mind. True enlightenment is the experience of Spirit completely unhindered, uncorrupted by illusion, conditioning or contradiction.
Adyashanti says, "Full awakening comes when you sincerely look at yourself, deeper than you've ever imagined, and question everything...Enlightenment has nothing to do with what you add unto yourself or whether you're more or less happy. Enlightenment is, in the best sense of things, a destructive process: it's the crumbling away of untruth." It's asking, "What do I know for certain?" and being open and sincere about what we find.
"The End of Your World" is an in-depth guide to spiritual awakening. With great clarity, wisdom and insight Adyashanti gives straight talk on the journey to Enlightenment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen On Life After Awakening 27. Februar 2009
Von Tom Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First, I want to acknowledge Tami Simon for the outstanding service she has provided spiritual seekers for over two decades through her amazing company, Sounds True. Tami had the wisdom-eye to spot Adyashanti's spiritual genius relatively early on in his teaching career and has made his teachings available to the general public through Sounds True.

This book (or cd), "The End of Your World," is once again a creation of Tami's wisdom/compassion. She saw the vital need for clear spiritual guidance not only into awakening, but through it and beyond. She asked Adya to respond to this need and the result is this essential book.

The great awakening traditions have their own ways of dealing with life after awakening. Unfortunately, their methods too often require the assumption of cultural affectations and reprogramming into a particular stance or relationship with reality. How is it that someone who claims to have awakened continues to identify with being a yogi, sufi, zen buddhist, taoist or christian- all human created over-lays of reality? Our spiritual/religious identity is part of what is awakened out of. Hence, the end of your world. You don't even get to keep your spiritual delusional system, as nice as it may be!

Adya points to total freedom from self and its multitude of identities, including the spiritual ones. No abidance anywhere.

This is an essential guide book for anyone experiencing true awakening. It isn't a program or even a map, just a gentle reminder that everything that happens is only an expression of absolute freedom. So relax. What's the worst that can happen? The end of your world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great company 27. Dezember 2008
Von E. Leiste - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Feeling kind of alone with my experiences on the awakening path, Adyashanti is a great understanding company for me and i only can recommend his Audio CD's, describing all traps i could fall into.
I read Tolle, Balsekar, Ramana, Nisargadatta etc., all helped and Adya definitely helped me further through his language.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The End of Your World 11. Juni 2008
Von Katie Davis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In his usual intelligent and no nonsense manner, Adyashanti warns the spiritual seeker that they just might find what they are looking for! This is straight talk about the nature of enlightenment and outlines the pitfalls of the spiritual awakening process.

With penetrating insight, Adya navigates beyond the common traps which include the sense of meaningless, the ego's attempt to co-opt spiritual awakening for its own purposes, the sense of superiority that may accompany profound breakthroughs, and grasping the intoxicating bliss.

This is an honest investigation into the truth of who you really are and offers direction in how to live this truth once it has been discovered. In addition, the six cd set also offers teaching stories and an interview with Adyashanti.

He frankly shares that awakening does not offer a "new version of you," but rather no version at all. The wisdom of this collection points to the profound spiritual realization that lies beyond "you and your thoughts," "you and your emotion" and "you and your personal will."

5.0 von 5 Sternen A breath of fresh air and clarity. 19. Mai 2009
Von Jim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
"I do not present my teachings as statements of truth," writes Adyashanti in the first chapter of The End of Your World, "because trying to put the truth into words is a fool's game."

I wholly agree; the ineffable defies prosaic expression. Rather than play the fool's game of trying to put "the truth" into words, Adyashanti uses words as "pointers" in the sense of the Zen saying, "Don't mistake the finger pointing to the moon for the moon itself."

His pointers are fresh, clear, and non-dogmatic, and I can understand why Jack Kornfield, who has been one of my favorite spiritual teachers for decades, lent his name to the book in an endorsement that appears on the back cover.

The End of Your World is written for those who have had "real, authentic glimpses of reality." I think it would be most helpful for those who have had just such a glimpse or what Adyashanti also refers to as "nonabiding awakening," which he contrasts with "abiding awakening," and who want pointers on "life after awakening."

Adyashanti discusses many "common delusions, traps, and points of fixation" that many who walk a spiritual path encounter; the "'I got it, I lost it' phenomenon"; "being stuck in emptiness," which is a form of "being stuck in the transcendent"; being "drunk on emptiness," which is having a sense of superiority or inflation after an awakening, a "sense of looking down our noses at anybody we think is not awake"; getting caught in a negative sense of meaninglessness; etc.

The final chapter of The End of Your World is an interview of Adyashanti by Tami Simon, founder and president of Sounds True, Inc., who published the book. Simon, who also edited and wrote the foreword for The End of Your World, is a good interviewer (I've read other interviews by her, e.g., of Ken Wilber). She's not shy about asking challenging questions and of putting interviewees on the spot. For example, she asks Adyashanti what he thinks will happen when we die, and insists, "don't say that you don't know!" He begins his response by saying, "And I can't say I don't know? Well now you've really tied my hands, Tami." I don't want to spoil anything by revealing more of Adyashanti's answer, but I'll say that I, who consider myself a critical thinker, appreciate his answer.

One of the qualities that some spiritual seekers sometimes lack is confidence in being, which is to say that they are plagued by a certain amount of self-doubt. You've had an awakening or many awakenings (what are referred to in Japanese Zen as kenshos), but you're nevertheless in a state of existential doubt. There's some confusion or sense of what Zen teacher and scholar David Loy calls lack. I think that someone in just that kind of situation could find Adyashanti's book a useful companion. It may be the right medicine for someone who is intimate with awakening to some degree but who also has a sense, however subtle, of being stuck or confused.
