The intent of this book is to look afresh at ones daily experience, to point to something that the mind may have overlooked. It is not pointing to anything new, anything that you can achieve, or anything you can add to yourself. It is not pointing to the good deeds you have done in your life to emphasize what a wonderful person you must be. It is pointing to something so simple, something so obvious, that when it is pointed out and seen, you wonder how it was ever missed. How is it the mind could have taken something so obvious for granted? How did the mind so easily toss out the valuable jewel in favor of its reflections? You may have been searching for self-realization, enlightenment, the Buddha Mind, God, or some other goal implying the same thing. You may have been searching for many years; or you may just be getting started on a search. Whether you have been travelling a path for a while, or just taking the first step, makes no difference. This book invites you to take a look at the space that has been overlooked, to see what is obvious, and to bring that search to an end. right now.
John Greven was born in 1961 in Oklahoma. At the age of eighteen he was struck by the idea that the “creator of the universe” couldn’t be as limited as was taught. This began a search that took him through various religions, philosophies, metaphysics, and meditation. The search went on at various levels of intensity and commitment for 25 years. In 2004 a meeting with John Wheeler contributed to bringing the search to an abrupt end as the simple and obvious truth was seen. Oneness takes the reader step by step to the Inescapable Reality that is the Self.
