'Reason and imagination and all mental chatter died down... I forgot my name, my humanness, my thingness, all that could be called me or mine. Past and future dropped away... Lighter than air, clearer than glass, altogether released from myself, I was nowhere around.' Thus Douglas Harding describes his first experience of headlessness, or no self. First published in 1961, this is a classic work which conveys the experience that mystics of all times have tried to put words to.

From multiple New York Times best-selling author, neuroscientist, and "new atheist" Sam Harris, Waking Up is for the 30 percent of Americans who follow no religion, but who suspect that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history could not have all been epileptics, schizophrenics, or frauds.

Things become much more simplified at the end of the spiritual search...so much so that it's possible to identify key stages that every seeker encounters immediately preceding awakening (enlightenment). So in one sense, these five steps have not been invented by me. I have simply segmented the final stages that a seeker of truth encounters when they have reached the end of the spiritual search (for greater clarity and guidance).

Enjoy the power of clear awareness. Do you realize that noticing and awareness basically drive everything you appear to do? Could you have gotten your body out of bed this morning without first having noticed you were awake? Would you have picked up this audiobook without first being aware it was of interest to you? Your awareness is like the clear glass of a windshield - and through it, you experience every bit of your life. Awareness is inherently pure and clear.

I'm listening to the audio book and I'm almost finished... (One hour left)
He keeps mentioning the advantage of a clear mind yet barely gives any practical advise on how to achieve it. He keeps saying the same things over and over again... where is the "juice"?

It feels like this book is just a promotion for his seminars or coaching sessions. It's so unpractical and boring I'm not even going to waste my time trying to finish listening to it. I'll search for other resources

There is a space within you where you are already perfect, whole, and complete. It is pure consciousness - the space inside of which all thoughts come and go. When you rest in the feeling of this space, the warmth of it heals your mind and body. When you operate from the infinite creative potential of this space, you produce high levels of performance and creative flow. When you sit in the openness of this space with others, you experience a level of connection and intimacy that is breathtakingly enjoyable and filled with love.
