4.0 out of 5 stars Very enlightening., 3 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing (Paperback)
Great book. Could not put it down. This guy is crazy enough to make you believe he is genuinely enlightened. I found that towards the end the author ran out of steam a bit, but nonetheless brought his story to a good conclussion. He raises some very disturbing questions about the search for truth. I could in no way rank this as a spiritual classic, it is much too personal and somehow ego-centric for that. Ego-centric might sound like a strange way to describe an enlightened man's book but nonetheless that is how I see it and as Jed advises you have to learn to think for yourself. In getting on the case of almost all spiritual teachers and the con that passes for a spiritual search, Jed succeeds at putting himself head over shoulders above everyone else in the teacher of enlightenment stakes. It seems to be working for him because I heard he is now on the global satsang circuit. This is good for Jed's house, which will no doubt be having more extensions added to accomadate the new influx of visitors amongst whom I will not be. I mean to say, a Buddha in Iowa...forget it, Jed, but I loved the book. I gave it four stars because it became a bit patchy in places. Loved the DZ story, well written to boot. A man after my own heart.
