Book Description

THE BOOK OF UNKNOWING continues the leading-edge work begun in the The Book of Undoing. That was about how-to awaken, while this one is primarily about the post-awakening experience itself—how to clear. Topics addressed include how to assess if you're awake or not, why you may need a teacher, what our experience is in post-awakening, experiments and inquiries, and dozens more. It contains 33 articles that have previously appeared on or other websites.

Product Description

About the Author

FRED DAVIS studied and practiced Eastern wisdom for twenty-five years prior to 2006, when seeking ended, and his true awakening commenced. He is the creator and editor of Awakening Clarity Now, and the founder of The Living Method of Awakening. Fred is also the author of The Book of Undoing: Direct Pointing to Nondual Awareness, Beyond Recovery: Nonduality and the Twelve Steps, and Awakening Clarity: A Spiritual Sampler. A fourth book is scheduled for late Spring, 2014. The Living Method of Awakening is an extraordinarily successful process of inquiry, investigation, and direct pointing that encourages immediate recognition of our shared True Nature. Hundreds of people on six continents have found the door to freedom using The Living Method, which is a blend of both Eastern spirituality and Western philosophy. Fred’s work has appeared in Advaita Vision, Nonduality Living, Meeting Truth, ONE: The Magazine, Nondual Highlights, and the annual book, The Journey Home, Volume 2: Awakening in the Dream. He is happily married, deeply loves animals and Socrates, and lives quietly as a chiefly ignored, urban hermit in Columbia, South Carolina, USA.

This book is essential reading; Fred Davis is so clear, so direct, so heartbreakingly open and honest about his own spiritual path, and of the spiritual path in general, that it feels impossible not to come away from his writing feeling more clear, less cloudy, and more aware of your being as Awareness.

Every chapter is a touchstone, one that I feel invites regular re-reading - showing to is whatever we need to see next on the path. He covers oscillation after an awakening experience, and how to pay attention to presence, and see ourselves as we truly are. Brilliant.

Fred gets down to the nitty-gritty of non-duality without putting on a "there is no me, there is no you" metaphysical act. In other words, he's not into lots of non-dual jargon. This is philosophy that's insightful and deep, yet at the same time down-to-earth and irreverent. It's also refreshing that he's willing to show his flaws.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, a must read, unsurpassed seam-less editing by John Ames 21 Jun. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The Book of Unknowing is for people on the Awakening path within the planet wide movement of Nonduality Spirituality. If you are not on this path this is a window into that life. I wish I could give you detailed information about my impressions but there is more things going on when you read an Awakened writer’s book. You are not reading a book but going through a series of teachings that influence you at different times as you grow and reread the book. In addition, I find Fred Davis’ writing to be one of the best of spiritual Awakened writers. There is a flow bringing you into the words that you read like sailing down a river stream on your back, watching the blue sky and the intermittent trees hugging the bank. Before you know it, the book is finished with no idea what you have read. Then there is the wait until you can read it again. Always, there is a surprise, saying to yourself," I don't remember that at all from the first read!" I guess the ego cannot take it in. I loved and enjoyed the entire book and you will get a lot out of it, read, after read, after read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the Seeker, Excellent for the Finder! 14 Jun. 2014
By Christopher Warnock - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let's start this as a conventional book review: Fred Davis is an authentic awakened teacher who has written a very accessible and useful book on the actual experience of awakening to our true nature. Perhaps even more important is his perspective on achieving clarity, post awakening. Fred writes as someone who is enlightened, not 100% perhaps, but enough by far give his explanations from his own experience. For the seeker, in the pre-awakened state it's good to know that enlightenment is actually possible, and to get some intellectual idea of awakening. For the post awakened, but still occasionally or even often cloudy finder, this is an invaluable book.

Let's drop the dream state: One endlessly and never ceasingly speaks in a million tongues, in the midst of cacophony, here One speaks clearly to One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful book by Fred Davis! 9 Jun. 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
See my review on The Book of Undoing. This book continues to help clear up those who had a initial awakening and it gives you Fred's personal story which shows what a great 'Down to earth' person he is. Having just met Fred at his Awakening Clarity Workshop in Asheville NC., Its very easy for me to communicate to all of you what a great teacher Fred is. I highly recommend this book to all..
