Reader comment on Adyashanti's passage ...

The author emphasizes that being is what is most important and offers an abundance of criticism of us for avoiding and denying being -- I wish he had said more about being and embracing being. I think my being is my soul. Being expresses and differentiates into all beings, animate and inanimate. My being is my little piece of Being. It is my essence. And it is for me to listen to, acknowledge, value, accept, know, express my being. As is said, what good does it do to gain the whole world and lose one's being or soul. For me the process starts with being still and listening to my inner being. What is truly within us is deeper than conditioned thinking. I think I'm being faithful to my inner being when my inner being/voice/truth is more important to me than what others or society says is right or wrong. Sometimes I realize that I have fooled myself when I realize that I was listening to conditioned thinking -- sometimes it's hard to know what I'm listening to. I hope I listen more closely the next time. Practice helps.
