The meditations in The Fabric of Self speak to the components of life, from awareness to love, from death to ego, and from ideals to truth. Each meditation is a bright light illuminating a path to immortality. For instance, �Awareness is the fundamental force of change for the self. When we become aware, deeply and completely, of the attachments, prejudices, arrogance, bitterness, fears, and all other vanities that makeup our daily existence, then true change is realized.�
In the section devoted to Love, Mr. McAfee writer, �Without love you are an empty shell. You may work, hope, dream, seek riches and power, but your conflicts and suffering will continue.� And on the subject of Healing we read, �It is through questioning, with the burning desire to know the answer, that the truth is revealed. And it is ourselves whom we must question. This questioning of ourselves is the only road to a full healing of ourselves.�
John McAfee has taught self-discovery techniques for more than 16 years. His knowledge and abilities are rooted in truths that are 2500 years old. This reviewer suggests you read his other books, The Secret of the Yamas, Into the Heart of Truth, and Beyond the Siddhis (see my reviews) for additional insight about his wisdom.
The Fabric of Self, in this reviewer�s opinion, is a door opener, and that door leads to a life of fullness and joy. Whether you keep this book on your coffee table or your night table, The Fabric of Self should be read daily!

"True love has no object. It is a state of being." The first shock-wave that moves through you as you open this peaceful book is that John McAfee lives his words - he claims no ownership of his words and offers them freely to you to facilitate your continued spiritual awareness of what it truly means to live! McAfee's meditations are not mere platitudes but are the raw truths that we so often do not want to face as we take that long, hard look in the mirror. The Fabric of Self is a tremendous visual experience as each meditation is presented against a screen of light blue fabric with plenty of room on each page to pen your own thoughts and revelations. The meditations are divided into chapters that challenge us to discover the duality of our own virtues and vices and thereby uncover the "brilliant light of truth shining within each of us." Just as John McAfee shines with the oneness of nature and humanity so does he offer us this opportunity to honor our own connectedness.

Someone told him he should write a book, and he believed them. I don't even consider these unrelated ramblings to be a book. I would have given it zero stars if I could. I'm not in the greatest mood at the moment, thus no sugarcoating.
