    One thought on “Falling Into Grace: Insights on the End of Suffering”

    1. I love the way *Adyashanti* writes. My personal 'favorite' book by *Adya*, >> (the nickname that the local community calls him), is 'emptiness dancing". I re-read it many times!!! Its a VERY VERY beautiful book!!! His writing is soooooooooooooo lovely!!!

    2. I'd say this is a good one to start with if you haven't read or listened to much of Adya's teachings before. (Not as great as Emptiness Dancing, but still good!) It's a beautiful book; full of relevant and clear pointers, all expressed in Adya's familiar, compassionate and heartful style.However, for me personally it's not really plunging deep enough into the aspects I would have like it too After reading his previous book The End of Your World - which truly touched and illuminated my heart in m [...]

    3. One of the best spiritual books I have ever read. It all starts with you. Just try to shut up your mind. :-)

    4. Like this book and the auther, i like how he illustrate his journy in spirituality. It is inspiring. Have very usefull insights.Enjoy it really. ❤

    5. I love Adyashanti. His teachings, his persona, his words, his voice, his presence, his caring and loving nature, his peace, his humor, his downtoearth-ness, his smile, his grace.He may not always be all of this, but that is how I know him. From the YouTube videos and the satsang I was lucky enough to attend, here, in Copenhagen where I live.This was my first book with Adya. And I've got to admit: I prefer him live. Or as close to it. I missed his voice, his laugh, and the way he speaks his words [...]

    6. I listened to the audio version of this book before reading the actual text. Adyashanti speaks freely from a profound depth that resonates with his every word.He covers a vast range of perspectives that all point to the same awakening. As with many of his talks, though he repeats himself often, I would find it challenging to outline his points and quote what he said.This is to say that the experience of reading the book transcends the content itself. One is immediately transported to the living [...]

    7. Falling into Grace --- one of the best books I've ever read to date. While every page is deeply insightful, there's a section as well about transmutation; about welcoming reactions when you have a reaction. I loved realizing that you can't get rid of something like fear or anger for example. Everything is one. But you can transmute it. And to "do" that you're not really doing anything but surrendering to what is, and then whatever reaction is present naturally transmutes itself to its higher ess [...]

    8. I heard Adyashanti on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday and ordered his book immediately. As a spiritual teacher, he encourages us to let go of our struggles a be open to Consciousness."What we all aspire to, and what is in fact natural to us, is openness, peace, love, and well-being. These qualities are completely natural qualities of spirit. They arise in us when we become conscious of our spiritual nature, of our on-separate, non-somebody nature. Then love flows quite naturally." (p 75)Let go. Relax. [...]

    9. Adyashanti is a local proponent in the Zen/Advaita tradition, and I would like to read more of his works. I found this one interesting, but it felt somewhat superficial to me. There were no new insights, and few unique perspectives offered. It seemed to be a rehashing of older material, without offering anything new or explaining anything in a way that resonated with me. Perhaps this is my failing.

    10. In the same way that we fall into the arms of a loved one or drop our heads on the pillow before sleep, we can let go into the beauty and truth of who and what we really are. Falling into Grace presents Adyashanti’s response to anyone looking for a way out of suffering and into the freedom of spiritual awakening.

    11. .MesmerizingI want to and will read every book by Adyashanti. After seeing an interview with Oprah, I was impressed. This book was full of grace and kindness. Exactly what I saw in this author. It will lift your spirits

    12. This took me a long time to read. I would read a little than stop to absorb it and practice it in my daily life. I highly recommend reading this. We all suffer in so many different ways and Adya shows us how we don't have to. Stay in the moment!!

    13. Breaks down why we suffer in a simple to follow manner. If we are in conflict with what is true (happening) there will be struggle.

    14. One of my favorite spiritual books. I've read it several times. Good practical insights that help me see the world with love, opposites, and find grace in each situation.

    15. a great book about the reasons of suffering and about the self. However, after I am that, it did not impress me anymore. But a good read though

    16. I don't want to weigh this book down with critique. It's a simple manual for finding your way through suffering. My first introduction to Adyashanti, and not the last book I'll read by him.

    17. An amazing and very clarifying book for me at this point in my life and Buddhist study. Once I finished it the first time, I immediately went back to the beginning and read it again.

    18. Before buying, go see some of his videos on youtube. If you like them, you'll maybe also like this book.To me it did nothing. It felt like he was just paraphrasing what other people have written, but in a more western/american way.Puzzled by the good reviews, and the high price I paid for the book (17€ on Kindle, wtf!), I googled him after I finished reading. In his youtube videos he doesn't seem genuine, and on his website he offers lots of courses and retreats – all of it cost a good sum o [...]

    19. A very interesting read.It's packed with simple yet thought provoking ideas about changing the way we look at the world. I have read quite a few of these Zen/Buddhist type books and whilst most of them have something to teach I found this one particularly easy to read and understand. Having said that, because the ideas are so simple I'm at a loss to explain what Adyashanti talked about for over 200 pages :-)Many passages are quite uplifting and its a good book to dip into if yr feeling sad, upse [...]

    20. Living GraceThis day,Sunday morning I finished this wonderful read. Now to surrender all and trust. This book has awakened me to a different way to see grace. And that is in every situation, good or bad, there is grace. With every person I encounter, there is grace. Adyashanti has given me something new and different to be part of. I now know I always was here, now. The magic for me is remember, remember who I really am and have a willingness to love unconditionally and just breathe keeping an o [...]

    21. This was a book I dipped into on occasion while it sat next to my bed for well over a year. It lost me at times but that could be because a lot of time would pass between picking it up. Overall I found the concepts to be a little grandiose but there were bits and pieces I gleaned that make me think I might start this one over one day and see if I don't get more out of it on the next pass.

    22. Great intro to Adyashanti, but because Adyashanti's message is so simple and direct it is hard to just call it in introduction. It is at once an introduction, an afterword, and everything in between. Read it.

    23. Adyashanti continues to be one of the best teachers out there - he clearly explains what is happening to so many of us in plain English. I'll add more but if you are looking for great spiritual teaching - I think he's the best.

    24. Amazing book outlining brilliant wisdom and insight from zen practices. A deep book requiring focus to follow the complex thoughts presented here in a very conversational tone. Like getting a master zen teachers lectures 1:1. This will be one that I listen to numerous times throughout my life.

    25. Nothing concrete. Just vague discussion about how all our suffering is created by our thoughts of what's happening. It didn't even offer tools on how to create something different. Not useful at all, and very boring and repetitive
