A step-by-step presentation of Direct-Path-style nondual inquiry, from beginning to end and beyond. Features 40 experiments that guide you experientially from simple perception all the way to the sweet collapse of the witness into pure consciousness.
Have you ever done nondual inquiry and said to yourself, "I understand it intellectually but I don't feel it. It's not my experience!" If so, The Direct Path could be for you.
This book is the "missing manual" to the Direct Path. For the first time in print, Direct-Path inquiry is presented from beginning to end and beyond, in a "user-friendly" way. The core of the book is a set of 40 experiments designed to help dissolve the most common nondual sticking points from simple to subtle. The experiments cover the world, the body, the mind, abstract objects and witnessing awareness. You are taken step by step from the simple perception of a physical object all the way to the collapse of the witness into pure consciousness. Your "take-away" is that there's no experiential doubt that you and all things are awareness, openness and love.
Also included are three tables of contents, illustrations, an index, and a section on teaching and the notion of a "post-nondual realization."
This book can be utilized on its own or as a companion volume to the author's ‘Standing as Awareness’.
