Wow this book will blow your mind! It is an incredible read. It has everything in it to guide you through transcending the mind. Ram Dass is a genius in this area of understanding he explains very clearly the process and what it means to be enlightened. A must read for anyone looking to go beyond the body and mind in this lifetime. It's the type of book you need to re- read to digest its wisdom.
"It’s a journey towards simplicity, towards quietness, towards a kind of joy that is not in time. It’s a journey that has taken us from primary identification with our body and our psyche, on to an identification with God, and ultimately beyond identification." Personally for me without drugs, drugs, they are just not my thing, but as it is, there are many different ways, and that makes it beautiful, to reach the state of the open heart.
