This book has two aims, the first as a stand-alone guide to, and practices for, Awakening. Once this has taken place then anxiety and unnecessary mental suffering disappear, for these are caused by... More > misidentifying oneself as a separate object in a world of separate objects. This causes us to see each other, and the world, through a murky filter of self-interest, self-concern, self-promotion etc. On Awakening one discovers that there truly is no separate self and so this filter is removed allowing us to see the world ‘as it is’ with no self-concern for the future or past. The second aim is to provide the reader with information on my spiritual journey. This will show the influences that have moulded my understanding so that the reader can understand the basis of my ‘pointers to awakening’ which constitute my books on the subject. One other thing that makes this book unique is that it is the first that contains all of the various practices that I have developed, and use(d), over the last eighteen years.< Less

A 'Simple Guide to Awakening' by investigation of one's moment to moment experience,which leads to one becoming 'aware of awareness'. Awakening is becoming fully established in, and identified with,... More > awareness. This book is designed to help its readers go ‘beyond the separate self’; that is to free oneself from obsessive thinking and worrying about one’s self-image, health, wealth, status, achievements, lack of achievements, past, future and ultimate survival. These are all caused by identifying oneself as an individual object in a universe of multiple objects, and also by comparing oneself with like objects (other people).
