‘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... More > 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 wished for this clarity.’< 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. 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
