December 11, 2011 Update:
I continue to reread Rupert Spira's groundbreaking new Presence book set. THESE BOOKS HAVE MORE POTENTIAL TO LIBERATE MORE SUFFERING THAN ANYTHING WRITTEN SINCE THE POWER OF NOW. Twelve years ago, when The Power of Now was published, a great many of us would not, as a group, have been ready for Rupert's new Presence book set. However, as a result of that title, and the cumulative effect of the great number of clear and fine titles that have been published since then, a very large number of people, at many different levels of the theoretical spiritual path, are now ready and waiting for these books. I do hope they reach the vast audience they deserve. I hope they reach YOU.
The Review,November 8:
I'm going to run out of superlatives in regard to Rupert Spira's new Presence book set, so let me start right away: Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! In all candor, I am in awe. The clarity here jumps off the page and into the reader. The first volume (Presence: The Art of Peace and Happiness) has an opening section that is just over 30 pages long. It is, I think, the best description of its section title, Our True Nature, that I have ever read. It is worth the price of admission, all by itself.
Since the truth can never be told, but only pointed to, Rupert then goes on to share his marvelous "translation", so to speak, of the most direct path to this singular-yet-shared True Nature. It is wonderful to have a meticulous artist at the wheel here.Read more ›
I came across Rupert in the book "Conversations on non-duality, 26 awakenings" and liked what he had to say (I thoroughly recommend that book as it has 26 different accounts from people who have "awakened" and found an end to seeking).
It's fair to say that books on non-duality can be difficult. Firstly they seem to be trying to describe experiences which are beyond words, so that's not a great place to start. Certainly I'd have great problems trying to describe some of my previous meditative experiences. Second, from what I have read so far, they do tend to fall back on the old "There is no self", "There is nothing to do", "Nothing is real" and "There is no real experience" arguments when the going gets tough. And if I read another book that makes analogies to waves and the ocean I will scream!! As an example, "Being: The bottom line" by Nathan Gill, which I read before this, left me cold.Read more ›
If you liked Eckheart Tolle and wished for something beyond and deeper than "The New Earth" Spira is your man, along with Jack Kornfeild. He writes in a way that one can grasp the nebulous fleeting Truth of things. I recommend this book to those still seeking to understand dualism.
And explains everything so clearly. This book has impacted my life in every way possible. Living a life of peace and joy has always been
My primary goal in life, and having read this book, has made me realise where that peace is, right here, always here. My search is over.
For anyone genuinely interested in peace, this is the ultimate book to read in the subject, absolutely brilliant.
