Inspired by the works of Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Adyashanti, and many other well-known (and not so well-known) spiritual teachers, this book chronicles the journey of a man enamored with the idea of Enlightenment. Not only are the great wisdom teachings of Advaita brought to life in this book, the inspirations, meditations and revelations experienced by the author are also eloquently expressed.
This book is written in such a way that it appeals to those who have been actively seeking spiritual Enlightenment, as well as those who only have a mild curiosity. The teachings and experiences shared in this book are actually lessons on how to live a happier and more peaceful life. Since this book shares real life experiences with which most of us can relate, it also serves as a road map to bring about a deeper understanding of what Awakening means in our daily lives.

I was overcome with the desire to know the ultimate Truth of what we are and why we’re here. The circumstances that led to the birth of the seeker are discussed in another post (LINK) and not relevant to this discussion. Suffice it…Continue
Have you ever made what you thought was a bad decision? If you think so, then you've probably experienced the frustration of things not working out the way you had hoped they would. However, I would like for you to ponder this: What if there is no such thing as a bad decision? What if there are only decisions? What if it’s impossible to make a mistake in this life? What would happen to this frustration if you dropped the belief that mistakes are possible? Is the idea that things could or…Continue
Fear seems rampant around the world right now. For some it has to do with the impending rule of the new President of the United States. We have heard a great deal about how wrong things could go under Trump, and a lot of it’s easily believable based on the past. However, this is a prime example of how we create fear in our lives -- We imagine a future. We like predictability and are programmed to use our memory to project a future to help put us at ease (or freak us out). Let’s face it, the…Continue
