I've been a "seeker" most of my adult life. Might be due to a traumatic childhood (seeking safety and solace), might be out of curiosity (seeking answers and direction) or probably a mix, but it came to an end when I finally realized the futility of the search. I simply gave up seeking answers and direction and safety on a planet slowly revolving around its own axis in a silent universe. When you realize it's all a distraction from letting life be as it is you can let go and surrender. Coming to the end of the search, the end of the gurus and masters, the philosopies and religions, and the process of getting something and getting somewhere else than here and now, you find peace. Also recommended: Krishnamurti, Freedom From the Known / Lind, The Seeking Self / Magid, Ending the Pursuit of Happiness. Best wishes!.

For anyone who would like to wake up to a joyful way of living then all of Jeff Foster's books are highly recommended especially this one & 'An Extraordinary Absence'.
This book 'The Wonder of Being' is mainly a re-edited version of his first two books (they were so popular they are out of print!) - however it contains some new material making the whole edition a most delightful enlightening inspiring read ! May you enjoy !It Happens by Itself: Dialogues with Isaac Shapiro

This is a beautiful combined edition of Jeff Foster's first two books. Very clear pointers to our true nature, spoken with great simplicity. I don't understand how one wouldn't resonate with much of what Foster has to say. I enjoyed it very much and the latter chapters touched me (or should I say no-one!) especially deeply.

This book's like finding a spring of cool, fresh water on a long walk; drink it in.
I sometimes wonder if we haven't really run out of things to write down, but I'm very glad Jeff Foster set these ones to paper.

Unfortunately this is just like so many other books on awakening - totally misleading. Promises of intimacy and/or a new joyful way of living are just absurd. If you want intimacy, you'll find that you also get to be intimate with all the pain and horror of life too. You can't avoid that half of the equation, no matter how much you'd like to. And the freedom of the Absolute is of little benefit when offset against your sheer trappedness as a human body, mind and self.

Having just reviewed another book of Fosters, 'An Extraordinary Absence: Liberation in the Midst of a Very Ordinary Life', which is very similar to this one, there is little left to add.

So, if you prefer saccharin to honey or sugar, plastic to earthenware, polyester to cotton and MDF to wood, then you'll enjoy Foster as he is just as artificial.
