Enlightenment is for All
The main aim of this book is to act as a stand-alone guide to Awakening; which is synonymous with Enlightenment when maintained. The title comes from an internet discussion about Enlightenment,and my own conviction that it is available to all who truly want it and are prepared to investigate with an open mind. This book is composed of articles, resulting from my further investigations (and contemplations) into the nature of Reality. The thrust of the book is that beneath the surface appearance of thoughts (including all mental activity) and sensations there is a deeper level of being, which is the perceiver of these. The former are a flow of fleeting objects whereas the latter, which is the Awareness of these, is a constant conscious subjective presence. This is the only constant that has been (with) you since you were born and that which has witnessed your entire life. So this is what you actually are rather than the ever changing body/mind in which these thoughts and sensations have... More > occurred.< Less

Dec 4, 2016Review By Ramaji (Turiyananda on Amazon) “Enlightenment Is For All” by Colin Drake is an immensely practical book. Therefore, it deserves to be read by anyone who is still seeking enlightenment. It will greatly serve you even if you are merely curious to know what enlightenment or spiritual awakening is about and why you should be interested. The stunning paradox of life which the author so adroitly points to and explores via a wealth of original angles is that we are already that which we seek. More precisely, we are that Awareness which is naturally and automatically aware of itself and of whatever is arising in the moment. This Awareness is also the Source of everything It is experiencing, all of which is fully explained in this unique guide. If these facts of life are absolutely obvious to you moment to moment, then you are an enlightened person. Then the fact that you are Awareness will be more self-evident to you than the nose on your face. So this is the paradox. You are that... More > Awareness but you are not aware of that central fact of life. The author is a man of enormous patience and persistence. He is extremely good at holding your hand from beginning to end. Therefore I highly recommend this book for the beginning and intermediate seeker. I have read many but not all of the author's books. I would say that I found this one to be the most direct, the most useful and the one that for me drilled down to the essence with maximum precision and effectiveness. The brilliant methods and techniques presented are in fact art forms into which you must pour your own life force and personal passion. Like gold nuggets strewn alongside the road, they will be ignored by those looking for expensive courses taught by impressive well-known individuals. Ironically, the humble simplicity and directness of the author is easily dismissed by those who wish to exchange cash for flash and attend events led by individuals whose main qualification is fame. In my opinion, the elegant approaches in this book are superior to any training in any course or seminar of any kind at any price. This puts them in the category of priceless, meaning I cannot give them higher praise than that. My understanding is that the author does offer retreats in which he guides students and seekers in his original meditations. This living teaching would of course be the cherry on top after studying and working with his elegantly simple yet effective awakening methods as found in this book.< Less
