By Nick Roach & Sally Powell
"Nick Roach has once again provided us with a profusion of provocative
thoughts and stimulating speculations as to our true nature. Nick isn't shy
about declaring his own enlightenment. He states with razor-sharp clarity
what enlightenment is and isn't, and how any of us can drop our resistance
to enlightenment at any moment, by simply becoming aware of where we are
and what we are feeling. If Nick is right, enlightenment is not at all what
most `enlightened' teachers say it is, but instead is both more mundane and
more terribly wonderful than we ordinarily allow ourselves to imagine... or

"Nick Roach is a voice for our collective awakening. His Essays in Truth,
Glimpses into Reality opens up many of the profound and pertinent questions
which demand to be addressed as we explore the depths of this mysterious
business we call `life'."
Timothy Freke, author of many books investigating spirituality, including
The Jesus Mysteries and Lucid Living.
The contents of this book were written over a period of three years, one
page at a time, as the idea for each arose in Nick, and in pretty much the
order in which they occur here. Each subject or chapter was published on
the website, itself steadily growing in size as time progressed, and the
contents of which were never expected to make it into a book such as this.
However, they are amazing pieces and describe the process Nick went through
as the state deepened in him. You may notice the style changing as you read
Nick's works and interact with him in person. This is perhaps particularly
apparent in some of the later sections of this book, which could even be
said to conflict with the earlier pieces. All were correct at the time as
they were experienced and serve to demonstrate how the truth moves on. What
is true today, no matter how true it seems, may be pushed aside for a
greater truth tomorrow. Better to roll with it and enjoy the ride than try
to fight it and hold to old and out of date ideas.
This also applies to Nick's own relationship within himself with his own
Master's teachings, and you will see how Nick begins to look beyond these
in his own experience and with his own perspective, no longer simply taking
on faith what he had held onto for so many years simply because it was what
he was taught.
Feel free to dip into this book as you wish, but there is a great story if
read in page order as the journey within unfolds.
