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 of your life seeking spiritual enlightenment, but were looking in the wrong place over a long time? It’s happening right now to millions of seekers around the world.

That’s why Dr. Robert Forman has written his revolutionary book, which has recently become an Award-Winning Finalist in the Spirituality Category of The USA “Best Books 2011” Awards. Told in often poetic prose, Enlightenment Ain’t … offers new direction for people looking for a sane and healthy spiritual pathway in our increasingly confusing world.

Traditional spiritual models are giving seekers a wrong and frustrating impression about spiritual enlightenment. By exploring his own 39 year experience of spiritual enlightenment, Dr. Forman 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.

Through metaphor, humor, vulnerability and achingly beautiful prose, Dr. Forman’s book offers new found 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.’
