For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom. "Don't think that awakening is the end," teaches Adyashanti. "Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature."

The content of this audiobook by Adyashanti is wonderful. It's great to hear his voice, his humor, and his insights into spirituality. I travel a lot, and this is the only book I listen to because I always hear new comments--about inquiry, nothingness, aliveness, perception, letting go, etc.,-- that delightfully surprise me. His talk is easy to follow, his silence wonderful to hear. He seems to embody effortless wisdom and simple enlightenment. A joy.
Well Worth the Price
I have listened to many audiobooks on Buddhism, meditation, and awakening and found this one to be the best one so far. This book answered some of the questions that the other books didn't. Adyashanti is a great spiritual teacher and this audiobook made me feel as if I were on an extended retreat with a good friend as my spiritual guide.
A truly enlightened -- pardon the pun -- series on not sweating the small stuff.
