writes about Doing Nothing...
What do you do after you've tried everything to find enlightenment? "You are already there," writes Steven Harrison. "Do nothing. Nothing is a surprisingly active place. It is there that we discover who and what we are."
Doing Nothing is for spiritually interested readers who have found themselves avidly following practices that have not fundamentally changed their lives: new therapies, ancient meditations, exotic religions. For twenty-five years, Harrison studied the world's philosophies, seeking out mystics, seers, and magicians all over the world. Then he discovered that "the very grasping for an answer that relieved me of the burden of feeling was the problem. Without the grasping of the seeker, the nature of the problem fundamentallychanges."
A regional bestseller when originally published by a small press, Doing Nothing is a spiritual tour de force. It explores how the path to happiness and the truths of life lies in the simple act of stopping the search: challenging readers to deconstruct their beliefs in the "myth of enlightenment" and in process-oriented spiritual systems.
