This book is sooooooo completely helpful in my awakening and what pitfalls to watch out for after the initial experiences of the nature of reality! Really exposes so many mind tricks and blocks to the experience of ABIDING Truth. This book both humbles and clarifies. I am most grateful to Adayashanti and all those who echo the Truth always. Namaste.

Very practical, hands-on writing about the nature of thinking mind, and the change of perspective from the relative (essentially delusional and sticky) view of thinking mind to the enlightened reality. If you have had awakening experiences of some sort, but the change has not been permanent, this is very good book for you. Adyashanti talks quite much about the essential sameness of non-abiding and abiding awakening (enlightenment). The book stresses the importance of truth in place of fancy experiences. The journey is not going to stop once the change of perspective sets in. Enlightenment is about Truth, and the non-transformed elements of your being will be brought to your awareness.

This is a great book, especially in conjunction with the audio recording of the same name. I haven't had the enlightenment experience, but every chapter meant so much to me. Every re-reading brings new meaning and relevance.
I've never met the author, and because of the directness and authenticity of this work I don't need to meet him.

I seriously question Adya's notion that he has met hundreds of enlightened people. Kind of sounds like an unprovable validation of his "efforts".
