Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing is the first in the series and announced the arrival of a major new voice in modern spirituality. Jed McKenna pulls no punches, but tells it like it is. It's probably not to everybody's liking, in fact some people might find his approach a bit upsetting, as he obviously seems more interested in truth than making you feel good. The second book is called Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment and is every bit as good as the first one. It contains a very interesting and enlightening in-depth discussion about Herman Melville's book Moby Dick (Wordsworth Classics), as well as more of Jed's hilarious and outrageous experiences and profound insights. The third book, Spiritual Warfare, might well be the best of the three books, and is even more uncompromising and direct than the first two.
Jed McKenna speaks of enlightenment and spiritual awakening, and does so without sugar-coating it.Read more ›
For anyone who thinks this book is dated, or less than apocalyptically hard hitting, then read it again. In the very best neo-Zen tradition, it calls for a critical eye to be cast upon EVERYTHING in the spiritual lexicon - and that's not an invitation to nihilism either. McKenna asks the earnest spiritual seeker to hack away at the vestigial beliefs, symbols and nonsense that clutter most people's attitudes towards their own development. His assertion is that (in the spirit of apophatic theology a la Dionysius the Areopagite, Richard Rose and Alan Watts), you will come to the truth through remotion. He describes it as a painful process, and one you only engage in because you absolutely have no choice. He also points out that there are NO SELLING POINTS!!
It's a riveting read, like all his others - guaranteed to get you asking the right questions, and make you less likely to get shaken down by the myriad of spiritual highwaymen out there. However, I reckon the first question seekers should be asking is "...Does enlightenment really exist?" I've met some compelling and radiant characters in my life, but for the life of me, I've not been able to categorically affirm that point. Bit of a bummer, that, but I'm still trying.
Then Jed is your own personal anti-guru, de-constructing the collective ego of his readers block by block.
McKenna, the person, doesn't exist. This teacher will never offer Satsang or appear on Oprah. Instead, he throws Nunchucks of wisdom into his readers' false selves, sparking a conflagaration that may well dissolve all they believed to be true, including the notion of their very selves.
What is left after this messy, mind-blowing process has run its course is the subject of this, the last of the trilogy. It seems that life 'on the other side' of enlightenment is neither pretty nor peaceful, and would put most pseudo-seekers off completely.
If the world, your self and all you ever invested in materially seems precious to you, and you are really very content with your word, this book is not for you.
For those of us who want to truly enter and deepen into nonduality, then this may be the last book 'you' ever buy.
This books from Jed McKenna are just for people whom willing to find out what is truth.
This work doesn't celebrate any religion and is not for elevating your spirit!!!
It is for discovering what it is like to be "Truth Aware"
This book requires a lot of your own active reading and you'll need time to become to understand what it is all about.
This book is the most helpful of the 3 for 'Adulthood' because it provides the techniques to get you started. Continuing on the path is then up to the commitment and desire of the seeker. I would still like Jed to do one more book explaining the intricacies of co-creation with the universe, which is a massive part of Adulthood:- basically one let's the universe lead by following what it wants, instead of the ego's wants which are preoccupied with upholding Self image. I've found that all parties involved in an event get better outcomes when the universe leads this way.
The difficult trick is realising what the universe has designed as best for a particular event, and then going with it. I found nature could give me a decent sign but nature tired of that (in hindsight I was pushing for a sign not letting it happen naturally) and I realised the next step for me is going with the flow of events and synchronicities. When I "get it" (generally just relaxing into what I see as best by releasing fear, following my gut and letting the universe dictate the final outcome), I've experienced "flow" in my life like rarely ever before, to the point, for example, that when I'm in it I don't need a watch or phone on me to get all my schedules right in the day. Makes me laugh with joy because I never realised life can be so easy and fun!
