‘By observing mental states you also become aware of the seven factors of enlightenment. These are: awareness of awareness, investigation of the Way, vigour, joy, serenity, concentration and equanimity.’ (The Buddha, Maha Sattipatthana Sutta 14-16) The first two are paramount and the last five are outcomes of these. This is what this book is all about, becoming ‘aware of awareness’ through direct investigation and then continuing with further ‘investigation of the Way’ (the Tao, the nature of reality). Once one is aware of awareness then one can become ‘A Light Unto Yourself’ by undertaking further investigations not needing to relying on any ‘teachings’, although these may be useful for confirming what one has discovered. Comments from Peter Signell on the Author: 'I know Colin Drake through his magnificent writing.’ ‘Your words seem to always ring so true to me.’ ‘You can only imagine how much I have...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Here Is Some of the Best Spiritual Advice on the Planet By a Non-Duality Master!, April 19, 2014 By Turiyananda - See all my reviews This review is from: A Light Unto Your Self (Paperback) This book is rather unique because Colin covers a wide range of territory while sticking to his non-dual guns. by wide range of territory, i mean he responds in each separate chapter to real life questions that most of us, if we are honest with ourselves, have had in terms of this whole non-duality thing. for example, how does non-duality relate to The Secret and the whole mind power manifestation thing? how does the "there is nothing you can do" advice work (or dos it work at all)? what if the study of non-duality has led me into existential despair and a sense of powerlessness? (i personally went down that road). what about free will? will non-duality help me with my anxiety? and so on and so forth... this book is like a "hit parade" or high quality gourmet... More > buffet of profoundly useful topics, relevant for those of us -- meaning most of us -- who must deal with the so-called "real world" and have to work for a living, deal with people, raise families, experience intensely painful feelings and the like. frankly, i cannot even think of even one other book that cuts so wide a swathe in the non-dual book universe. furthermore, he is able, apparently without effort, to generously, brilliantly and precisely respond to all of these issues from all of these people with enormous compassion. do i recommend this book? absolutely! like all of his books, a classic that sets the gold standard. thank you, Colin!< Less
