Sudden Awakening: Into Direct Realization by Eli Jaxon-Bear

Awakening is a living transmission of silence and freedom, writes Eli Jaxon-Bear, granting final liberation to everyone. A teacher in the self-realization movements of Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Poonjaji, and Gangaji, Jaxon-Bear presents a unique map of egoic identification as a vehicle for self-inquiry and a final realization of freedom.

Based on ancient Indian teachings and years of contemplation, this book offers the key to the possibility of ending world destruction. The book is written in clear, beautiful prose, and readers can peruse each chapter as a meditation, or as a gateway into awakening the highest self-attainable.

Now Consciousness: Exploring the World Beyond Thought by Albert Blackburn

The intimate contemporary account of one man’s quest is a valuable step-by-step approach that anyone can follow on the path of self-knowledge. During an interview with J. Krishnamurti in 1944 the author underwent a radical inner transformation, a turning about at the deepest seat of consciousness.

The result: Now Consciousness, the perception of reality moment-to-moment, free of time and discrimination. This awareness leads to an inner clarity that enables the individual to objectively watch the intricacies of the thought process and explore the secrets of consciousness.

Albert Blackburn’s straightforward accounting of his own experiences make this work ideal for anyone interested in the dynamics of consciousness and the psychology of transpersonal experiencing. The author disputes the necessity of a linear approach to enlightenment; instead he suggests the possibility of a vertical, instantaneous breakthrough, free of time.

Albert Blackburn was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1910. He began a career in aviation in 1928 after graduating from the first approved flying school in the U.S. This led to barnstorming, flight instruction, and eventually to airport ownership and flight school operations from 1938 to 1950. Wishing to give all of his time to his inward exploration of consciousness, he gave up his airport business and moved to Ojai, California. Mr. Blackburn was a member of the Theosophical Society from 1934 to 1944, was associated with the Happy Valley School from 1948 to 1958, and Krishnamurti Writings Inc. from 1946 to 1966; he was also briefly associated with the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. Since 1974 he has been teaching, writing, and giving talks in various places in the U.S. and Canada, utilizing his own experiences and understanding of life.
