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.

We're so immersed in the waves of the ocean that we can't see the sea.
I hope you are enjoying the long days of Summer. I love seeing the sunset at 9:00 at night and it feeling like room temperature in the evenings. Anyway, I felt compelled to write something that might help someone in some way. I hope you enjoy.…
I've been reading (digesting really) this great book called, What's In the Way IS the Way, by Mary O'Malley and have really enjoyed her fresh take on Awakening. The book is beautifully written, and has many places to stop and experience what you're reading throughout the book. I've also been re-reminded about the power of just putting a question out, without looking for an answer, and allowing an answer appear. As…Continue
I've been wanting to put something out about judgement lately to shed light on this quote from the Bible, "Judge not, that ye may not be judged (Matthew 7:1)." Interpreted one way, this implies that "God" is very judgmental (a common theme in Christianity), but, looked at another way, it actually has to do with the mirror effect of Life. When you judge another, you are actually judging yourself, for what you see outside of yourself is just a…Continue
