Product Description

About the Author

As a sincere Truth seeker for over many years, Keith Loy encountered much of what confuses and stands in the way of Spiritual Awakening. After what he now views as being his long and unecessary spiritual search, he finally awakened with ease to the ever present Reality which he now simply calls "The One".
Keith found that the very spiritual search which appears to lead one towards a state of Spiritual awakening, can more often than not, actually become a trap which leads us to fall prey to a maze of concepts, beliefs, philosophies and superstitions (second hand opinions) instead of leading us towards an authentic awakening to Reality. Keith discovered that philosophy and belief can be more of a hindrance rather than a help when it comes to awakening, leading us to remain fixed in a thought world rather than the Real world, and in his book "The One" he calls it the "egos substitute for Reality" , which is what we usually settle for instead of Truth realization.
Keith found towards the end of his spiritual search that he actually had to let go of the treasured beliefs, opinions and philosophies which as a spiritual seeker we can become so attached to. In order to embrace the simplicity of present moment awareness and therefore Spiritual awakening, Keith discoverd that no belief system, philosophy, spiritual rules or particular way of life had to be adhered to at all - all that was needed for Spiritual awakening to arise within the awareness, was a simple Attentive Presence to whatever arises in each moment. Along with this presence comes a natural willingness to let go of our control and resistance to "what is", thereby allowing us to embrace life and each moment just as it is.
His book "The One" was written to demystify and simplify Spiritual awakening for those sincere Truth seekers who are now finally ready to leave behind the spiritual search and allow an authentic awakening to occur, here and now!

I found the points made in this book of interest and not far removed from 'The Power of Now' and all the other 'Mindfulness' books out their. I did however feel the author made his point over and over again, to the level of irritation. My main concern though was the insistance that only the author's way was the right way and the rest of us simply did not truly want to be awake! Is there a one size fits all way of enlightenment? Is it right to make others feel inadequate if they don't reach their awakening by one particular path? Leaving the mind's clutter behind is not always 'easy' and not necessarily because those of us who find it difficult don't truly want to be awake, but perhaps because we are all different, complex individuals.

The great thing about this book is there is nothing nebulous about it. The author is a typical person in the western world working an average job who has chosen not to identify with his mind anymore. As you will see when reading, there is nothing to look for. No recommended teachers or further reading, no quest - just the practise of mindfulness - i.e., inhabiting the 5 senses rather then your thought dramas. Like he wonderfully describes, thought is a pseudo-hypnotist which we automatically believe and when we believe it then you get every struggle with humanity we have seen so far and the reason for all our problems. The way he explains things has helped me through a difficult time in my life and I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more from a skeptical author who has spent a lot of money over the years only to find there is little that needs to be understood.

Although i have now reached a state of being much similar to this author, i bought this primarily for a member of family but i thought i would give it a glance before hand.
I cannot praise this book enough, if like me you have spent years searching for something that resonates with your being then look no further for the essential message contained here is to clear your mind of clutter and negative thought patterns which keep you enslaved and hypnotised by the media and those in power.
Negative thought process's culminate in fear and once you are in the grip you are imprisoned into the mindset of not having enough, For those who think that we must strive to attain material objects which in all honesty has no real importance to our spiritual welfare. Dare you to let go, and trust that the universe will always provide that which is essential to our wellbeing, Once you have liberated yourself from fear the sky really is the limit.

I was going to buy ' A course in Miracles' but read a review here on Amazon that mentioned this as a more straightforward companion book to it. I decided to skip A Course In Miracles and go for this instead. I have read a lot of books on the subject of Awareness and I have to say that this is right up there with 'The Power Of Now'. Possibly even better. This book is really all you need to achieve awareness. I highly recommend it.

I immediately guessed that this must be self-published by the facts that it a) is not double-spaced & b) by the vast amount of spelling and punctuation errors, e.g: "Lye's" for "lies", and "cultures learning's" for "cultures' learnings". This strikes me as unprofessional and makes for, at times, a muddling read.

Although the author does have some good ideas and say some poignant things, the book is extremely repetitive throughout. At its worse it is rambling & unclear. For example: "We are the Reality which lies beyond, and gives power to, all of the thought stuff in our mind." It is a world apart from Tolle's quiet, elegant prose.

I also feel that there is some latent anger in the author; that he disdains those who do not share his world-view or who are in a different "place" from him. Shouldn't there be total acceptance in the soul of one who claims enlightenment (such as he is presumably doing)? For example, he says: " "You should try telling them that what they believe isn't true at all, but is just a few thoughts rattling around inside their mind [...]. And then prepare to take your guard as you behold the irritation growing within them right before your eyes." .......... Is this really the calm tolerance of a person who lives moment to moment, trusting in the greater divine plan? If we are one as he says (which I DO believe) he is in fact irritating himself ("What you give, you keep" - "A Course in Miracles".)

I am afraid I did not finish this book, but I did some checking on later pages to see if it looked as though it improved ... the same things that bothered me in the first 100 pages were still rife. I struggled very much after p.
