What Stops People Awakening?
The first reason most people don’t wake up is that they don’t have a clear insight into what they actually are. If you are reading this book and have not had a glimpse of what you are, of the Noumenon Itself, it’s ok. Throughout the course of applying what you read here you will begin to see the Truth of your Being over and over. This book will help those fastest that HAVE seen and have chosen in their hearts to live from this place of Truth. It is intended for those that find it simply impossible to spend one more day as a separate person because it is no longer tolerable.
Regardless of your experience or knowledge in these matters, this book is for you. It will help you begin from wherever you are starting from and move into total Freedom from the mind.
The second reason we do not usually wake up is because we have believed that it’s too hard, it will cost us too much and that losing our sense of being a person will be a huge sacrifice that we will always regret. We can also fear that we will become some kind of automaton or robot with no ability to think for ourselves upon awakening. This is simply not true and this book will help you see that.
The third reason is because we have had very few contemporary examples of awakened Beings in our lives. We have heard of the great Sages and Avatars that lived long ago and we may see living Teachers here now, around us and on YouTube, but deep down in our mind we believe that Enlightenment is only for the lucky few or those that have a superhuman ability to concentrate. We may also believe that we need to have a living Teacher to talk to or that it is impossible to wake up fully in one lifetime. All these myths pervade the human consciousness and stop us from believing in our own liberation.
It is time to make a new paradigm. One in which many of us wake up and it becomes easier and easier for those that follow us because we have been living examples of Truth and the fact it is possible. Never has it been easier to wake up fully out of your limited sense of self into total Peace. Never has there been more help readily available through books like this or over the internet. Everything is set for you to wake up fully and shine as your True Being, but you must believe it is possible for you, even when others may tell you it’s not.
You are not being asked to become anything other than you already are. You are only being asked to see clearly and then make a stand for freedom. All you need will come to you to complete the journey and detailed instructions are given in this book to help. Are you ready?
What This Book Will Not Give You
This book will not spend time describing the Enlightened State and what it’s like to live the Awakened Way. There has already been plenty of description of this and it serves no purpose to write about that here. Each time it is described it is only more mind food that will be taken, conceptualised and used to continue the dream of being a “someone” alone in time and space. I would like you to find out for yourself what it’s like. Become what you have seen and live it fully.
The only thing that will be said about what happens when the ego dissolves finally is that it is totally worth it. It is worth spending every spare minute that you have in practice. It is worth every seeming sacrifice (it is later seen that anything you thought you had to give up was actually worthless anyway) and it is worth it every time you might have to muster up courage to go further.
There is nothing in this world that will compare with the Total Realisation of Truth. We are not discounting this world and all the experiences it has to offer but simply asking you to wake up first and be a beneficial source of Light to the world rather than a drain on it.
Have you had a glimpse of your true nature? Do you keep falling back asleep again? This book is one of a kind and will give you simple step by step advice, practice and tools to fully awaken to your True Self. You will learn how to recognise the Self that you already are by many various methods. Pick the one that calls to you and apply what you read consistently. Nobody can show you what you already are but this book will show you how to look. Already you are the Silence, Stillness and peace that we are all innately looking for. Many spiritual seekers have seen the Truth of what they really are but are unable to live from and as that place as yet. This book is designed for you.
