The fact that you are reading this book means that you are ready to be liberated from the limited world of the mind into the infinite and unlimited world of Now.
This book is a comprehensive guide to your awakening, and when you do awaken, you will discover a world more sacred and beautiful than anything you could have imagined.
In this book, I share with you how to still your mind in the simplest way, and how to become fully present and awake in the truth of life. I show you how to arise in mastery of the mind and ego, so that you can remain fundamentally present in your day-to-day living.
Presence enhances every aspect of your life, including your relationships. It is immensely worthwhile.
As an essential part of my guidance into the present moment, I speak of past lives and the soul’s journey. I speak of God and the eternal dimension of life. I speak of the need for healing, forgiveness, and repentance. I speak about the right expression of emotions. I speak at length about the ego and how to free ourselves from its tyranny. I even speak about death.
But let me assure you that everything I speak of is directed towards only one end. How do we free ourselves from the past and awaken fully into the present moment? How do we awaken out of illusion into the truth of life? How can we be restored to Oneness and yet still live our lives effectively within the world of time?
I urge you to approach each page of this book in innocence.
I have not written this book for your mind or ego. It is written for that dimension of you that is already awake, has always
been awake, and will always be awake. I am addressing the dimension of you that is eternal.
Each page reveals a part of the mystery. It is like a road map home. I suggest that you read it carefully in its entirety and then, from time to time, randomly open it. You will find hidden keys to awakening on every page.
This book has the power to liberate the sleeping giant within. If you truly embrace what is written here, you will awaken.

I Know Who You Are!
I want to begin by saying that I know who you are. You are an eternal Being. You are love, acceptance, and compassion. You are strength, clarity, and truth. At the deepest level, you are pure consciousness, beyond form and content. You are powerful beyond imagining. You are an instrument of God’s will upon the earth. You are a champion of God and your ultimate destiny is to awaken into Oneness. You are the champion of your own soul. It is through your awakening in this lifetime that your soul will be restored to its immortality. You are the redeemer of Oneness and the revealer of Heaven on Earth. You are Buddha, revealing the pure mind of God. You are christ, revealing the pure heart of God. And you are Lao tzu, revealing the way of God in the world. You are awakened man. You are awakened woman.
You are eternal but you are on a journey through time. Your journey has taken you from Oneness into duality. It has taken you into a world of illusion and separation. It has taken you from the present moment into the past and future. It has taken you from truth into a world of idea, concept, opinion, and belief.
The journey is purposeful but, for the most past, we have lost our way. we have forgotten who we are. we are now functioning as egos in our own private and separate worlds. we have strayed too far from the truth and we are following
in the footsteps of the prodigal son.
Because of our technological advances, we have become too destructive to continue living unconsciously upon this earth. It is time to awaken, but before we can awaken, we must recognize how and where we are lost.
The Dilemma Of Human Existence
Most humans are living in a state of unconsciousness. Even though our eyes are open and we appear to be awake as we walk and talk and live our lives, in truth we are not awake.
We are lost in the mind, which is a world of the remembered past and the imagined future. It is a world of thought, memory, and imagination. It is a world of opinion, idea, concept, and belief. It gives us the sense of a life outside of the present moment. It gives us a sense of ourselves outside of the present moment. And that is the great illusion.
In truth, there is no life outside the present moment. In truth, you do not and cannot exist outside of the present moment. The world of the human thinking mind is an illusory world and yet almost everyone believes that it is real. It is as if we have fallen asleep and the life we are living is a kind of dream, from which we must awaken.
To awaken spiritually or to become enlightened is to awaken out of the past and future world of the mind into the truth and reality of the present moment.
It is not until you awaken and become fully present that you will realize that you have not been present. It is not until you awaken that you will realize that you have been asleep, dreaming that you are awake. to be enlightened is to awaken out of the dream. It is a profound and dramatic shift in consciousness.
