Enlightenment Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul by Robert K. C. Forman

What if you spent years and years of your life seeking spiritual enlightenment, but were looking in the wrong place the whole time? It’s happening right now to millions of seekers around the world.

Traditional spiritual models are giving seekers the wrong impression about spiritual enlightenment – and it’s creating a lot of pain and frustration. This breakthrough book offers a remedy to folks who are:

>Convinced they don’t have “the right stuff” to achieve enlightenment in this lifetime…

>Disillusioned by spiritual teachers who don’t live up to their lofty self-portraits…

>Worried that choosing a spiritual life means leaving their everyday life behind…

>Hungry for a different way to be, but unable to express it…

That’s why Dr. Robert Forman has written his revolutionary book Enlightenment Ain’t All It’s Cracked Up To Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul. Told in often poetic prose, it offers new direction for people looking for a sane and healthy spiritual pathway in our increasingly confusing world.

By exploring his own 39 year experience of spiritual enlightenment, Dr. Forman shows that it’s indeed possible to create harmony between real life and spirit. He describes the necessity of “embracing the human messiness” that is either ignored or outright rejected by most spiritual traditions.

Dr. Forman’s book invites the reader to be honest about their spiritual goals and to consider a radically different yet more productive approach. Through metaphor, humor, vulnerability and achingly beautiful prose, this unique work offers newfound hope to spiritual seekers everywhere.

Dr Robert Forman ‘Enlightenment Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be‘ Interview by Iain McNay.

Author of several books including ‘Enlightenment Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be‘ and Director of ‘The Forge Institute for Spirituality and Social Change’ talks about his spiritual search and how the ‘pot of gold’ he longed for was not what it was cracked up to be.

But in time he realised that it was of a kind and nature, wholly different than anything he could have known to wish for. He also discovered that transformation at that level comes by grace and not by self-adjustment. ‘It is time we stopped mistaking the content for the awareness that beholds it.’ ‘Vastness issues a challenge; tell the truth so completely there is nothing left to be afraid of.’

    I really enjoyed reading this and the interview is very interesting…people are trying to come to terms with accommodating higher states of consciousness in their physical existence…new challenges are being thrown at us at every stage of evolution.
    I want to share this…. 🙂
