Asheville Spirituality, Satsang, Meditation

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.

The next thing I remember I was sitting on our stairs with paramedics looking up at me and…Continue
Where do thoughts come from? They seem to just appear out of the silence of our mind. They come in the form of words predominantly, but also images. No one else can hear them or see them, which makes them very private and personal. For the most part they are purely unintentional and random, but we take this voice in the head to be the only authority on what’s true and what’s not. Therefore, thoughts make up who we think we are and who we think the rest of the world is.
Dear Friends and Family,
Our little girl (now nicknamed Precious by me) is 3 months old already, and just keeps getting cuter by the day. One of the most joyful things in the world is watching her smile and try to talk. I’m teaching her to say “Hi,” and she has done it a few times now. Most of the time it’s just cooing. I could just spend all day gazing into her curious eyes, but there is work to be done.
