This book shows how Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism view the place of humanity in the universe. Each religion is investigated by considering how the it answers the five big... More > existential questions: 1/ Is there a God, or an Absolute Reality, and if so what is His (Its) nature? 2/ How was the universe created and what is the nature and purpose of this creation? 3/ What is the essential nature of a human being – are we just ephemeral material beings or do we possess some kind of indestructible essence? 4/ What is the purpose of life? 5/ What happens upon the death of the human body? Does this entail annihilation or is there some kind of afterlife, and if so, what is its nature? The answers to these questions give the essential beliefs of each religion, showing the nature of creation and our place in it. This a unique contribution to comparative religion, as by studying these religions using the same framework, the central beliefs of these religions can be clearly presented and compared.< Less

This book is a series of articles written since the publication of the Author's second book A Light Unto Your Self. It is the third in the trilogy which started with Beyond the Separate Self. Each... More > book deals with Awakening, from the dream of being a separate object on the earth, and each is written so as to stand alone … not requiring the reader to have read the other works. ‘I really enjoyed the book. Anyone reading it should have no problem "getting" what awakening, awareness, and the function of the body/mind are all about. And you provide lots of supportive text from traditional sources to back-up your teachings.’ – Jerry Katz Thanks, Colin for another fine dissertation……you are speaking the unspeakable clearer and clearer.- Paul Bedson. Fantastically well put. So simple any 'one' could get it! – Piers Mooreede As usual, this is an exceptionally lucid and practical discussion of the ephemeral “I” and the changeless Reality which underlies all. Well done! – Don Wolfe< Less

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). How we identify ourselves is at the heart of how we view the world and our place in it. If we fail to correctly identify ‘what we are’ (in essence) then this leads to an unfulfilled life, with its consequent frustrations and mental suffering.< Less
Freedom from Anxiety and Needless Suffering By Colin Drake

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

Awakening is becoming fully established in,and identified with,... More > awareness. Here is a review by a buyer of the Kindle edition: Eckhart Tolle and Osho and many other authors, spiritual teachers and gurus are profoundly important, helpful and illuminating but Colin Drake is something else....he's significantly better at explaining spiritual awakening and how to effect enlightenment and maintain it permanently. He gives the essential facts and tries not to befuddle the reader. He is very experienced with many years of direct experience of being on the spiritual path and also crucially of enlightenment itself. This book is very important - if you are on the spiritual path then your days of seeking are over. You've arrived at journeys end. This book explains everything you need to know calmly, gently and without mystical gobbledegook to become aware of your true self.< Less
