  • By Colin Drake
    Dec 4, 2016
    Review by Ramaji, American Spiritual Teacher, and author of several books on 'self-inquiry'. Colin Drake is known for bravely going where few non-dual authorities go. In his new book he takes us on a sightseeing tour of non-dual traditions. It has the friendly flavour of a fireside chat. There are many short chapters. Some are profoundly deep and take time to absorb. Other chapters jump in and out of hefty topics that entire libraries could be dedicated to such as NDEs, the great mantra of Shiva and self-hatred (aka "self-loathing"). The high point for me of "Ripples" is the extraordinary amplification of his unique and brilliant "Love Loving Itself" meditation. While I can see similarities in love-based contemplations from other sources, Colin really has outdone himself here. His special meditation practice "Love Loving Itself" is a much needed antidote to the insensitive dryness of many so-called "pure" presentations of non-duality.... More > The contemporary failure to consciously include love in the communication of non-duality has resulted in immature and distorted teachings which lack compassion. With his powerful yet easy "Love Loving Itself" meditation, it is now possible to enter into a non-dual appreciation of your now experience in a most enjoyable and relaxed manner. A child could do this and use it to enter into non-dual awareness. Since the resulting non-dual clarity-wisdom-bliss is based upon gently awakening awareness of the physical senses, this consciously enhanced experience of love without limits or conditions can be carried into daily life with ease. I hope that everyone who explores non-duality has a chance to also try out Colin's "Love Loving Itself." I think it's exactly what contemporary head-based non-duality needs right now. I did not expect this exquisite revelation of love as the ultimate truth -- and truth as the ultimate love! In sum, I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone who is new to non-duality, anyone exploring ‘awareness of Awareness’ meditation and anyone, old or new student, who does not understand what the Advaita or non-duality buzz is all about. Finally, even if you are not interested in non-duality or feel uncertain about what it can do for you, I heartily recommend this book because Colin's method for cultivating love is a sublime gift to all of us and our world that is so in need of love and spiritual healing. These are exciting spiritual times! Colin captures a hefty dose of that sacred lightning for us.< Less
