Product Description

Review

This vibrant, insightful book enlightened me with its blend of spiritual sayings and quotes inspired by cultures and philosophies around the globe. (Spirit & Destiny magazine)

Spiritual Awakening is a humorous and insightful look at how to live a more spiritual and satisfying life in just 4000 words and can be read in only 20 minutes! der Vliet provides five simple steps to shake off your fixed beliefs, worry less and spend more time having fun. The book also has an exquisite typography-focused design, making it both a textual and visual treat. Highly recommended. (YOGA magazine)

Tim van der Vliet demonstrates vividly through five simple steps that we don't need to read libraries full of hefty tomes to become enlightened, or to wake up. His message is sharp and straightforward, his methods delightfully quirky - a surprising combination of spirituality and humor. Tim has the ability to get to the core of what's important, keep it simple and be funny when you least expect itl his words will inspire you and make you laugh at the same time. You can read them over and over again and find new perspectives through their transformative nature... or maybe simply because the words have changed you. (Cygnus Review)

About the Author

Tim van der Vliet spent years trading stocks, futures and options in the financial markets. He bid goodbye to that world to write about the things that really matter to him... and his words are surprisingly different from what we might expect from someone of his background.

What is it?

Spiritual Awakening (the easy way) is Tim Van Der Vliet’s first book – a short, simple, yet powerful book, which takes a new slant on the process of finding enlightenment.

What’s it like?

It only takes 15 minutes to read the entire book, and it only takes 15 minutes to find spiritual awakening through it. What makes Spiritual Awakening (the easy way) such an interesting read, is the uniqueness of its design and content. What instantly stands out is its black cover with an imposing bulldog staring at you with a tilted head – not your typical cover of a book about spiritual awakening.

Divided into five parts, the book’s content is most accurately described as a series of enlarged affirmation cards, each with a different design; featuring quotes, and free verse poems. The language is simple but thought-provoking, and the five parts are structured in such a way to, incrementally draw you into Tim’s distinct way of finding enlightenment.

A poignant characteristic of the book is the use of rhetorical questions. Although, thought-provoking questions form the basis of many spiritual books, it is interesting to have a question take up an entire, sometimes two, pages of the book. It seems such a simple thing to do, yet having a question take up so much physical space gives it the emphasis that it needs, and forces you to, not just ponder on it for a second or two, but really search deep into your unconscious for wisdom.

My experience

“You have to be kidding me!” That was my reaction as soon as I opened the book. Being used to reading lengthy and complicated spiritual books, I was completely taken aback by the almost-impossible-for-me-to-comprehend simplicity of the book.

Books around spirituality either grab you or they don't and sadly this one did nothing for me. Best described as a series of short poems which can be read in about an hour. I read a write up of the book before buying which suggested that the author had taken a dog's attitude to life and looked at the lessons we could learn but I didn't get that from the book at all. It was alleged to be funny but again this bypassed me. Not for me.

Tim managed to write a very personal note on spirituality in the modern western world. Wonderful to be kept awake and positive by reading a line or passage and chant on that while living everyday life. Thanks Tim, you brought the wisdom of ancient spirituality closer to us!
