Once again cuts to the heart of the matter
on 18 December 2000
Once again Idries Shah produces a teaching text of incredible clarity and impact.This book pokes,prods and provokes you to a new understanding of yourself and how you relate to reality,preparing the way for an experiential grasp of the Sufi teaching.Only those brave enough to listen with an empty heart and observe the spinning wheels of their own mind will benefit to the greatest extent but this(as with the rest of Shah's work) should be considered essential reading for any serious Seeker after Truth.Buy it,read it,observe your response to it then wait and see if you can still feel its effect continue as time passes.Subtle,simple,beautiful and precise.Apply it to your every waking moment.
