When we deeply understand that the essential nature of reality is without separation, we begin to have a different relationship with the “appearance” of birth and death. The Unborn is beyond any notions of coming or going, being or non-being, and yet continually flows as Life itself, transforming its infinite expressions according to causes and conditions. While the “experiences” called birth and death happen every moment, and call forth many different responses, in Reality, separation does not exist. By letting go and dying into the present moment, we continually find Life’s great fullness and its great mystery.
Dorothy Hunt, Spiritual Director of Moon Mountain Sangha, teaches at the request of Adyashanti. She has practiced psychotherapy since 1967 and is the founder of the San Francisco Center for Meditation and Psychotherapy. Self-inquiry, as taught by Ramana Maharshi, led to the first of a series of awakenings. In meeting Adyashanti, she was invited to see beyond identification with the Absolute, allowing dualities to collapse. Dorothy is the author of Only This!, a contributing author to The Sacred Mirror, Listening from the Heart of Silence, and the on-line journal Undivided.
