In August 2003, virtually overnight, Jan Frazier experienced "a dramatic falling away of fear" - not just the immediate fear of her annual medical test but, as she learned as time went on, her fear of everything. She was "flooded with a causeless joy that has never left me." In this audiobook the commonplace belief that enlightenment is only for saints comes apart at the seams. Anyone can be enlightened, and all we need to do is ask. This rare and beautiful account puts Jan Frazier solidly in the tradition of enlightened teachers from J. Krishnamurti to Byron Katie. Guns and money aren't going to buy peace of mind. Giving up fear is.

I enjoy audio books and blogging.
I did not read the print version, and at this time I'm not certain that I would need to.
I would recommend this work for anyone that is studying awakening, transformation, consciousness, and spirituality, and requires continued reading material.
I liked the second half of the book a lot more than the first half. I enjoyed the references to excellent spiritual quotes by Tolle, Rumi , and others. I occasionally felt that the readers tone did not accurately reflect the depth of her experience.
Yes. I had an extreme reaction to the author's deep understanding of "awakening" and her ability to describe many thoughts and feelings that I have experienced. I was repeatedly thankful that someone knew that all this stuff is going on! I felt great joy throughout many parts of the second half of this book! I was very moved when the author explained how her efforts to resist living in her inner world were exhausting.
I did not LOVE the first half of this book, because listening to the author's specific hardships about cancer made me uncomfortable, nevertheless, it is hard for me to say more objectively how others would feel about the first half of this book, that clearly fanned the flame of "my" dragon.
This is not about fear falling away. It is about an abstract writer who took 100 pages out of her journal and read them. It was one of the most boring books I have ever listened to. Her voice was extremely monotone and monotonous. I kept listening hoping it would get better. It never did. I wish I could get my money back😡!!
I wanted to, but she is just not believable.
Author "feels" depressed and sounds rather self obsessed.
