Explores the concept of non-duality prevalent in many Eastern philosophies. While it was an interesting read overall, there were too many leaps of logic that were unsubstantiated. Lomas' writing style is at times rigid and dry.

clear, insightful, and high minded, Lomas' work not only opens the initiate up to great depths (heights) of pursuing that Bright Morning Star, he allows the initiative of the reader to follow the path of consciousness further with reference points, if one is keen enough to continue. recommended for all Masters, new and old.
