Reader comment on Adyashanti's passage ...

Rest and Be Taken

This morning while meditation, the above insight flashed through my mind as a picture while yearning to "see" the Self.  I sensed the above - that single thought - that yearning would "produce" nothing.  Instead, if I just would be with all in all, then I would not be staring at the heavens seeking stars, I would perceive them all around and catch an unexpected glimpse out of my peripheral vision. And, there was peace and rest as I floated, instead of working so hard to swim in the right direction.
