Foreword by Adyashanti
"This book is about Freedom. It’s not about a special state or condition called “Freedom”, some idea or concept to be believed in; rather, it is about the recognition and realization of our essential nature. When we arrive in this moment and awaken to the truth of our existence, we discover that Freedom is completely ordinary. Ordinary, yet awesome."
This wonderful collection of Jon’s teachings really captures his ability to point us back to our own innate freedom.
From the foreword by Adyashanti
To find an accomplished spiritual teacher is a rare gift. To find a book that puts you in a most lively way in the presence of such a teacher is even more rare. But here it is! Jon Bernie’s Ordinary Freedom has all the power of the spoken word and vibrates with the overtones of that teacher’s caring, compassionate nearness. Brother David Steindl-Rast, OSB, Author, lecturer, co-founder of www.gratefulness.org
Read Ordinary Freedom and rediscover something that you have always known — that this seemingly ordinary life is already the miracle you’ve been seeking, and that here and now is forever saturated with wonder. This is mature, grounded spirituality for grown-ups, and I thoroughly recommend it. Jeff Foster, author of ‘The Wonder of Being’ and ‘An Extraordinary Absence’.
