At the end of his liberating, must-read book, The End of Your World, Adyashanti does an interview with Tami Simon. He identifies the difference of his enlightened state is that he no longer believes the thoughts he has. Adyashanti (2008) explains, "I have no control over what thoughts appear, but I can’t believe that the thought is real or true or significant." He describes that as, "the experience of freedom." So the key to freedom is simply to not believe your thoughts.
