I am still in it. It makes my mind hurt a little, I really like that.

"There is a state of bliss, a state of peace, a state of love that it hunts for, a state that will be different, better, more complete than the mind which is hunting. And yet, the field in which the mind hunts for this other, is the mind itself."

One of my three favorite books in the world; and one of very few that I've read more than once.

I honestly love this book and the arguments that Harrison presents. We are so used to constantly be looking for enlightenment and inner peace that we don't realize when our desperation for finding it ends up hurting us. This is not light reading, but it is definitely worth the time. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has failed to find spirituality or individuals who are searching for alternate rutes to reach it. Great book!

There are no words for this amazing book. For the spiritual seeker who is done with seeking. This novel has personally helped me with many questions I've had recently, mainly those regarding the teaching of "do nothing."
