Adyashanti (October 26, 1962 -)
What you are is never born, never lives, and never dies. Birth-life-death happens within what you are, in the same way that a dream at night arises, has a span of time, and disappears within what you are . . . The nature of this that we are is to create. It creates an after-death experience. It creates Bardo realms. It creates beings to come greet you. It creates gods. It creates lights that beckon you. It creates tunnels, the whole thing. It’s just like in life . . . You can dream up a hundred past lives. And then the realization dawns: “Wait a minute, it’s all being constructed right now. There’s only now.
