3.0 out of 5 stars good concept, ok book 27 Nov. 2009
By Tombstone Jo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I heard him speak on an NPR program. I love the idea of how the ego and self are separate. The book was a little disappointing, though. In my opinion here are too many pages devoted to the argument of why this is plausable, and not enough to how it can manifest in daily life.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing read! 30 April 2013
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Sudden Awakening" provides clear and simple spiritual teaching. It was such a helpful book in guiding readers on how to do a good self-examination in order to find and feel the love within us all. I've found that many spiritual healing books can get very complicated and hard to understand, but this book has truly been eye-opening and has finally made me understand my own spirituality and I feel so at peace after reading it.

Everyone should read this book-to feel more in-tune to their own spiritual well-being, as well as to understand how we are all spiritually connected to each other. I honestly LOVED this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars a real gem from a true teacher 17 Oct. 2004
By grateful reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found myself deeply engaged reading this book... and smiling a lot.

Eli's expression is fresh, deeply insightful, but very easy and enjoyable to read. I experienced a wonderful balance between a ruthless pointing to my own experience of what is un-examined and unconscious - and a lightness of being... a confirmation and support to realize that what I truly want and love, is what I already am, right now.

To those readers who are just hearing the liberating words of truth (spoken by one who is realizing it) for the first time, this book offers a powerful and clear initiation and invitation to awaken. To those fortunate enough to have already received that redemptive instant of Grace, this book offers deep support for staying true to what Grace has revealed. It is an offering of love and wisdom from a deeply realized Teacher.

One of the liberating insights that I have received from this book (that is still reverberating) is to view the function of the "ego" from the point of view of the DNA, with its programmed imperative to survive and replicate. I really got how what is called "ego", which is the experience of being a separate something, is just an advanced program for survival! I can see that at one stage in the evolution of our species it was effective and likely necessary, but now it is outdated and ironically the greatest threat to the human DNA's survival.

As a result of trying on this perspective, something unexpected happened. It uncovered a sense of shame that I had felt during all the years (or lifetimes) when I experienced deep suffering by imagining myself to be separate from God, my own heart and all of life. Understanding the impersonal and functional role of the "ego" allowed this hidden shame to surface and discharge into an experience of compassion for this human ordeal of life experienced as a separate self.

Eli is clearly an Ally and Friend to those who are called to realize the truth that lies beneath the appearance, and to be in service to that. I hope his book finds a wide audience and that it serves to stop the reader's mind, allowing attention to fall into direct experience and reveal the lasting peace that is already present.
