I really never thought I'd find a modern book that gives so much hidden esoteric & symbolic knowledge & wisdom. I have been a member of several esoteric groups for many years that have not penetrated this deeply into the true & highest levels of understanding of a path that I gave up many years ago. This book has given me a new & dynamic perspective of Christianity & completely reinvigorated my interest in it's teachings. Richard Smoley is not only an adept but his voice & tone is pleasant & scholarly while he is able to articulate intricate information in a way that even a beginner on the path can understand & assimilate into daily practices that will reap wisdom & self knowledge for a lifetime.
Kornfield's voice is very soothing & enjoyable, he also has many humorous moments that make the experience of the book fun as well as enlightening. While I am not a Buddhist this book is one of the best books I've ever listened to. Absolutely awesome psychology that will teach you how to maintain a happy state this is independent of & despite what is going on in your physical life, as well as great tools for treating others the way you want to be treated. This stuff should be taught secularly in elementary through high school, the world would be a better place if it were. These are teachings for anyone regardless of religion.
