evolutionarymystic note: Many thanks to the author, Ann Purcell for sending me a complimentary book on her previous edition ” Let Your Soul Sing together with a short greetings note. May your new edition be a joyous success.

Enlightenment has fascinated people for millenia. “The Transcendental Meditation Technique and The Journey of Enlightenment” overturns the commonly held belief that enlightenment is a state of consciousness possible only for a few rare individuals living in a forest or monastery. It points out that enlightenment is in fact the most natural state of life, available to everyone through simple, effortless meditation techniques that expand human awareness and perception of the truly unified reality of life.

This book follows the author’s journey on the path of enlightenment and also gives accounts of athletes, artists, musicians, and people from all walks of life who have had spontaneous experiences of higher states of consciousness at some point. Many never had a framework to understand their experiences or to systematically develop them.

*Let Your Soul Sing* lays out the systematic knowledge of seven states of consciousness and how they can be easily unfolded through the experience of transcendence. It highlights extensive scientific research that confirms the development of health and brain functioning gained through meditation, and also explains how individuals experiencing inner peace simultaneously contribute to the creation of world peace. The style is easy reading, with anecdotes, quotes, short poems, and analysis of recent world events woven throughout.

Enlightenment is Not an Experience

Q: What do you mean when you say that enlightenment is not an experience?

Linda: An experience has a beginning, a middle and an end. Enlightenment is beyond time. It’s the end of time, really. And it’s forever – infinity. There’s no beginning to enlightenment, no middle, and no end. If you still see enlightenment as an experience, it’s not enlightenment.

Enlightenment is a word that is bandied about quite a bit, and different people seem to have different definitions of it, but I see true enlightenment as the end of all experience. It’s not the real thing if it ends – it’s still an experience. People who say that they’ve had enlightenment experiences may have had very profound experiences, and maybe a glimpse of how things can be, but that’s not enlightenment.

When you are totally immersed in the present moment, there is no time to experience anything.

When you are experiencing things, it’s time related. There is a person experiencing, so there is a separation, which implies time. When there’s no separation – no ‘I’, no mind separating things all the time, there can’t be any experience. It’s almost like you become the experience – which is what most people are trying to do in life. They are trying to satisfy themselves by using an experience, but what they really want is to be so totally immersed in it that they become the experience.

When the ‘I’ that separates itself from everything else goes, you just merge into the present moment – into reality. You become reality – and reality is not an experience. I had some profound experiences during my training, and I thought those experiences were giving me a glimpse of how it could be – but in a way they weren’t, because enlightenment is a state where there is no experience at all, where everything turns inward and you become what you thought you were seeking. When you are still in your mind, when the mind is still separating you from things, you’ve got no idea how it’s going to be.

It’s a state of not knowing – that’s what enlightenment is. And when you’re really fully immersed in not knowing and not wanting to know, there can’t be any experience. There’s no time for any experience.

You’ve really got no idea about enlightenment until it actually happens – until it takes you over – and that’s what happens – it takes you over completely. You can’t have any idea about it. You can feel things energetically when you’re around someone who is in that state, and that’s the closest you can come to it. You get a sense in that way – energetically. But the mind will try to turn that into an experience, and try to explain it and figure out what’s going on, and futurize it.

The mind works on the past, so it can only use the past – which is the known – whereas enlightenment is a state where you’re always in the unknown, so you can’t think about it. You can’t have any idea about it even when you’re in it. You are so immersed in not knowing that you don’t even know you’re enlightened.

I say that I’m enlightened because if I want to teach I have to say something. I have to use words, to try to encourage people, and to try to explain the state I’m in, knowing that it’s impossible. It’s not the words. The words connect me with people in a way, but it’s the energy behind the words that is important.

I’ve heard people say I must have a huge ego to go around saying I’m enlightened, but the only reason I can say it is because there isn’t any ego there. It would be much easier in a lot of ways to just keep my mouth shut, but I can’t keep quiet about this – it’s too important. I know there has been a lot of negative reaction, and that me just saying this will alienate a fair few people, but anyone who is open to the possibility that maybe this woman is enlightened may also realise that it’s possible for anyone who wants it enough. Some people will be repelled by it, and other people will be very attracted, and say, maybe I should see for myself whether I feel she is enlightened or not.

Enlightenment is a state of indescribable peace, a deep passionate peace – not cold and empty like your thoughts. Once you realise this state, you can’t lose it. When you have nothing you can’t lose anything. It doesn’t come and go like an experience.

You keep going more and more deeply into Here. Into Now. There is no end to it. You actually become this peace. It’s only then that you start to see what love really is.

By: Philip Goldberg

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is an internationally known spiritual teacher whose Art of Living programs and humanitarian efforts have affected millions of lives. I had the opportunity to interview him during his recent visit to Los Angeles. Here are excerpts from that interview. (The photo was taken on a previous occasion.)

Q: The International Day of Yoga is June 21. Where will you be?

Sri Sri: New York. I’ll be speaking at Lincoln Center. I think it’s very much in the DNA of America to do yoga. It can bring health, sharpness of intellect, creativity, emotional stability and a broad vision, which America has always stood for. The U.S. is a very progressive country, very dynamic, very forward thinking.

Q: What would you like people to know about Yoga?

Sri Sri: Yoga is like a vast ocean. You can just go for a breeze, or you can go with an oil rig and drill for oil … Yoga offers many things to different people at many different levels–whatever they aspire for: union with the cosmic consciousness, or physical health, mental clarity, emotional stability, spiritual ecstasy — all this is part of yoga.

Q: Does it concern you that people think of Yoga only as asana [the familiar physical postures]?

Sri Sri: Not really, because at that moment that’s what they understand. But once they start doing asana they start seeing there is something beyond that. If interest for meditation gets kindled, then they are on the right track. But if it stops at exercise … it’s not bad, but they will not reach the goal.

Q: When people think of the classic eight limbs of Yoga…

Sri Sri: I knew you would ask about that. Unfortunately, people think the eight limbs are eight steps, one after another. You know, when a baby is born it’s not that one limb develops after another. All the limbs develop simultaneously. The eight limbs of Yoga are so interconnected, if you pull one all the others will come along with it.

Q: Some people think you have to master the yamas and niyamas before you can do the others. [The yamas and niyamas — five behaviors to avoid and five to engage — constitute the first two limbs.]

Sri Sri: The limbs are not sequential, they are all together. The practice of the others contributes to the ability to observe the yamas and niyamas. When we teach meditation in prisons, we see that the moment they have a taste of meditation, their whole thought process and behavior pattern changes. They start on the path of non-violence. They become very truthful, and the tendencies to cheat disappear. So the yamas and niyamas start happening in people’s life just when they begin meditation.

Q: How do your Art of Living programs fit into the eight limbs of classical Yoga?

Sri Sri: Yoga would be incomplete if even one limb is absent from it. All the eight limbs coexist. Our program is the same way. We do some asana, and some pranayama-breathing exercises-and meditation that leads to samadhi [the 8th limb; not a practice but a state of consciousness transcending thought].

Q: Dharana and dyana are the sixth and seventh limbs. How do you explain the subtle distinction between the two?

Sri Sri: One leads into the other. Dharana is having the attention on a particular thing, and dyana is how the mind from there dissolves into samadhi.

Q: A lot of people translate dharana as concentration.

Sri Sri: Absolutely not. Concentration is an outcome of meditation. Dharana is attention — not tension; in concentration there is tension [laughs].

Q: Have you run into opposition or resistance in the U.S.?

Sri Sri: In the beginning we had a lot of resistance, and prejudice. But it’s much better now. Yoga is much more accepted. Today, car companies use meditation and yoga postures to sell their products.

Q
: How is the acceptance of India’s spiritual traditions in India itself, as the country modernizes?

Sri Sri: The younger generation is taking to it now. One generation previous was a little skeptical. The media also played a role. Now it’s different. People see the practical benefit.

Q: There is a lot of concern in the press about the protection of religious minorities in India.

Sri Sri: I think the fear is unfounded. Minorities have always been in good favor in India. For centuries they have been protected. The people-to-people connection is very good. There is a certain amount of polarization for sure, but not to the extent that minorities should be afraid of anything.

Q: What about the conversion issue?

Sri Sri: I think conversion should be from head to heart, not from one religion to another religion. I feel people should become more spiritual — rise above the religious differences and come together in the spirit of vasudhaiv kutumbikam: The world is one family.

Are you ready to meet your soul’s true mate?

The greatest quest in life is to love and be loved. Love continually reveals everything unlike itself. Through self-discovery, real connection, and communion, the relationship that unfolds is the greatest love of all.

Your Journey to Love is a guiding path along the inner road to true love, revealing how to:

Live in celebration of your magnificence as you discover you are “in the experience of Love”
Embrace living in the field of compassion and detachment as you become aware you are “of the experience of Love”
Anchor in the knowing that you are “with the experience of Love” in every moment.
Engage your complete presence as you learn to breathe, walk and express “as the experience of Love”

When you discover the hidden gems within Your Journey to Love, the face of your soul’s true mate will be revealed clearly.

Based on Enza’s own experience, Always Already Free is a guide to discovering the deepest truth about who we are. In this book, the author:

• Presents her own personal direct encounter with the awakened state.

• Thoroughly addresses the ongoing debate between the necessity of spiritual practice and the ever-present possibility of sudden awakening, while at the same time offering detailed instructions for the practice “Instant Presence – Allowing Natural Meditation To Happen.”

• Lays out what it means to consciously live and embody the truth of one’s being, the phenomenon of “finding and losing” oneself, and the power and seduction of our thoughts and emotions that keep us held in narrow self-definitions and create endless suffering.

• Guides the reader from the seeking process through the integration of spiritual enlightenment into everyday life and reveals that enlightenment is not a faraway dream, intellectual knowledge or even an experience but the direct realization of our true nature always available here and now.

“While it’s true that we are always the Self”– says Enza Vita “if this hasn’t been truly and directly realized, this knowledge won’t do us any good. Just knowing that there is no gate to pass through doesn’t mean that we are at the end of the search, not if we are still standing outside that gateless gate. Realization is not about you, the wave, realizing it is ocean. The ocean realizes itself in you and reveals itself to have never been just a wave.”

Enza Vita is the publisher and editor of InnerSelf newspaper and Woman Spirit magazine and the founder and director of the MahaShanti Foundation, a non-profit organizationdedicated to support the spiritual awakening of all beings.

She has spent over 40 years searching and studying under many of the great spiritual teachers of our age and she was exposed to the wonderful writings of many others around the world. As a result she was able to discover the universal teaching underlining all of them and to distil and present a modern practical authentic spirituality that reaches beyond all religions, yet allows for them all to remain, as they are. “The truth I talk about is not limited to any tradition” – says Enza Vita, “but is found in, and open to, all true traditions”.

Culminating in a profound spiritual realization in 2007, all her life’s work came into a clear, sharp focus, as she began to write and answer questions for those who came to her … which eventually became her book Always Already Free – Discovering the natural wakefulness that we were born with. Based on Enza’s own experience, Always Already Free de-mystifies ancient spiritual teachings and practices from east and west and reveals that spiritual enlightenment is not a faraway dream, but the ever-present reality always available here and now.

“It is a paradox to practice to be what we already are ”– says Enza Vita “but while it’s true that we are always the Self, if this hasn’t been truly and directly realized, this knowledge won’t do us any good. Just knowing that there is no gate to pass through doesn’t mean that we are at the end of the search, not if we are still standing outside that gateless gate. Realization is not about you, the wave, realizing it is ocean. The ocean realizes itself in you and reveals itself to have never been just wave.

Interview with Enza Vita
NondualityTalk

In the first hour (1:16:38, to be exact) there are blasts of static throughout the interview. If you find the static makes the interview hard to listen to, you may read a transcript of the first 1:16:38 here: http://nonduality.com/enzavita.htm

Or skip to 1:16:39, where the last hour is static-free.

0:00 – 4:43 Husband Leo Drioli. Meeting Enza at SAND. Chatting, talking about Enza’s name.

4:43 – 17:52 Born in Italy. Going to Australia at age 17. Alice Springs. Coming from Solarino, Sicily. Childhood.

17:52 – 24:09 Family dinners in Solarino. How much of nonduality is stories?

24:09 – 30:36 Continuation of the discussion on going to Australia at age 17. Dealing with her dad who didn’t want to let her go. Seeking. Trying to understand her experiences.

30:36 – 35:54 Nature of Enza’s seeking. Moving to Adelaide. Meeting her husband Leo Drioli. Making herbal potions. Discovering Nisargadatta’s I Am That.

35:54 – 46:15 Current connection with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu http://www.dzogchen.it/. Experience with Zen breathing/meditation teacher. More about resonance with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu stemming from her childhood. Mystery of it.

46:15 – 57:29 Being meditated, significance of. Paradox of getting from here to here. Enza learned to describe her knowing out of questions from her husband Leo. Not having anything to teach. Waiting for the next step as a teacher to become clear. If there were no questions she would have nothing to say.

57:29 – 1:01:58 Waiting for space to open to start teaching. Needing a reason to give teaching. The breast feeding story/analogy to giving a teaching.

1:01:58 – 1:13:11 Terms consciousness and awareness discussed. Coming from consciousness compared to standing as awareness. “I am” as consciousness. Nature of awareness itself. “Dark radiance of pure awareness.” Nature of “I am” and how to realize. Why isn’t the “I am” awareness promoted in today’s nonduality circles?

1:13:11 – 1:16:38 Suffering at the level of relative truth and as inseparable from absolute truth. Embracing both. Practice of presence. In teaching, starting with where a person is at.

ON THE TRACKS BELOW THERE IS NO STATIC:

1:16:39 – 1:21:08 Enza changes phone. Chatting about coffee and karaoke. Casual chat. Enza talks about her memory not being too good so she doesn’t remember what we were talking about before she switched phones.

1:21:08 – 1:27:34 The event of dropping away, non-separation, or shift in perception, or looking and seeing that she was everything. Everyone is already looking in this way. As a searcher or seeker you are looking for something other than this non-separation. Spiritual people resisting that Enza had this realization. This was seven years ago.

1:27:34 – 1:34:16 Is this realization a big deal? How the initial realization played out for Enza. Not talking about it openly for a few years. Role of meditation in facilitating realization. Not necessary to meditate as a practice. Enza having an inner knowing that this lifetime was for self-realization.

1:34:16 – 1:42:55 Enza feeling that a rope from within was pulling her toward “something” and that it was inevitable. Having trust. Nature of honoring that tug toward the inevitable. Relaxing into the spacious knowingness or “I am.”

1:42:55 – 1:48:15 Talking about awareness alone could be boring as it is not the complete picture. Nature of the separate person. We don’t need thoughts to know the sharp lucidity. Yet the mind is used to carry out the business of discussing awareness.

1:48:15 – 1:55:15 A space between the words. I ask Enza if she reads any current books. She says her memory is no longer photographic as when she was young. Things don’t stick around, even in the middle of speaking. Silence as the default stand. Her husband Leo keeps her exteriorized. How Enza is engaged in the world. Living in the body.

1:55:16 – 2:07:00 We talk about the Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND) U.S.A. 2012, where we met. Enza suggests a SAND for Australia. The activity in satsang where the teacher tries to get people to shift perspective toward non-separation. Enza’s experience addressing her husband’s questions. Headlessness.

2:07:00 – 2:16:50 A natural approach to self-realization compared to forcing it, yet can’t dismiss the more forced approach. The nature of being interviewed. Is anything happening? Awareness in movement and awareness still. Ramana Maharshi on deep sleep. Enza’s out of the body experiences as a kid and energetic experiences as an adult. Enza rehearsing as a backup singer for her husband Leo’s band which is opening for the Dalai Lama’s upcoming appearance.

I’ve written this book to share with you some of the symptoms of awakening, and also to support and guide you in your awakening process, no matter where you think you are in your journey. You will receive direct guidance in simple, understandable ways to consciously awaken to your divine self.

Take your time reading through the chapters. Read one and hold it in your awareness for a day, or even a few days, practicing the ideas expressed. Give some space to feel into whatever might get stimulated in you as you read and as you carry the reading with you through the day.

Awakening, like becoming lucid in a dream, can suddenly change your relationship to everything. For many people it’s a long, slow process. However, for some of us, the shift can seem as extreme as instantaneously landing in the body with a thud, and waking up on a new planet.

The fire of transformation is wild and can be very disorienting (make sure you’ve checked the expiration date on your fire extinguisher)! You are the infinite, formless, nameless One, dancing in a world and in a form with limits. That’s bound to create a rub and it’s meant to! It’s the spark, the impetus, the fire under our butts to awaken.

Awakening is rarely a gentle ride. If it were, there would be no stimulus to move. All that is unconscious, all that is lying dormant within, typically needs strong emotion or a crisis to shake itself awake. The mind creates these things when we are ready to move forward.

Dancing in the fire of awakening can at times make you feel like you’re going crazy. It’s critical that one has a good support team, preferably a person or a group of people who have experienced (or are experiencing) the stages of awakening. Who better to assist you as you pass through the proverbial eye of the needle?

Many traditions lead people out of the body to a transcendental awakening, which is only half of the truth of who you are. You are wholeness; perfect, powerful, and free. To realize that while acknowledging the limited humanness creates an opening that allows peace and happiness to lead you through life. You already possess everything it takes to wake up. Dropping into the body and feeling into what’s here right now is the other half of the equation.

Let us go together on this journey, and allow me to assist you in discovering that the you you’ve been longing for has been here all along. Your heart is calling you home! I invite you to embark upon that journey.

Shellee Rae, author, “unTeacher,” and healer, has been working with people and supporting them in their life, and healing process since 1998. Combining skills, heart, and intuition, sessions and events with Shellee Rae are loosely outlined, keeping them organic in nature and leaving space for fluidity to better meet the needs of the people she works with.

She became a Reiki Master in 1998 and over the next few years trained to the master level in many other energy modalities, and certified in numerous body-centered therapies. She also spent a month in India and became a deeksha giver in 2006. Shellee Rae’s first book, “Suffering ~ A Path of Awakening: Dissolving the Pain of Incest, Abuse, Addiction and Depression,” takes the reader on a 39-year journey through her life, from her childhood years as a victim of sexual abuse, through lengthy addictions to alcohol and drugs, into deep depression, and ultimately to the doors of death.

In 1997, a surprise turning point brought her into 12-step recovery, sobriety, and emotional healing. After many encounters with several spiritual paths, teachers, and healing methods, she finally awakened in 2008. Since that time she has been guiding people in their own awakening process by gently pointing to the Truth of who they are from the depths of her own realization.

You may be about to take a life-changing step, perhaps you’re already in the fire of transformation, or maybe you’re simply looking for some gentle guidance. Getting support is a wonderful gift to yourself and can greatly ease the process for you and those around you. See more at http://www.shelleerae.com

She soon learns the proper phrase for this, being mindful, or, a concept better known to her as the power of meow. What ensues is a journey to discover her own true nature, to gain a deeper understanding of her mind, and to experience life’s greatest joy, the here and now.

Throughout, there are encounters with familiar inhabitants of Dharamsala, as well as a whole new cast of characters: a senior exec from one of Silicon Valley’s most famous social media companies (hint: the name rhymes with “litter”), the Pope’s beloved dog (who shares a shockingly similar title: HHD, His Holiness’s Dog), and a public health inspector who threatens to have our poor narrator banned from the Himalaya Book Café.

In this follow-up to the Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring, readers escape to the enchanting and exotic world of the Dalai Lama’s monastery in the Himalayas, and take a peek inside the mind of a delightfully imperfect creature on the path to enlightenment. By accompanying HHC on her journey, you will learn new ways to relate to your own mind: slowing down, finding peace, and abiding in the boundless radiance and benevolence that is your own true nature.

There is no doubt how strongly our negative emotions affect our physiology. When we feel anxious, there is a gnawing sensation in our gut. When depressed, our whole body seems to slow down into deep fatigue — our thinking becomes sluggish and cloudy. Even heart attacks have been tied to rage and suppressed anger. But once these negative feelings have settled into physical symptoms and disease, can spirituality (a force of positive emotions) help us heal emotionally?

In a new study, researchers examined the connection between negative emotions in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and seven dimensions of spirituality. Not only do feelings of anger, anxiety and depression contribute to CHD, but these emotions tend to remain prominent as the disease progresses.

The research involved 293 individuals with CHD who were being treated at one of the three largest hospitals in Bandung, Indonesia. The participants answered widely-used psychological tests to measure levels of depression, anxiety, anger and social support.

They also completed the Spiritual Attitude and Involvement List (SAIL). This test measures a person’s attitudes on seven dimensions of spirituality: meaningfulness, trust, acceptance, caring for others, connectedness with nature, transcendent experiences and spiritual activities.

On a scale of 1 to 6, patients rated how strongly they agreed with 26 statements about their spiritual lives, including the following:

  • I approach the world with trust .
  • Whatever happens, I am able to cope with life.
  • When I am in nature, I feel a sense of connection.
  • I have had experiences in which I seemed to merge with a power or force greater than myself.
  • I meditate or pray, or take time in other ways to find inner peace.

The researchers discovered that patients with higher overall levels of spirituality had fewer symptoms of depression, anxiety and anger. There were surprisingly specific connections as well. For example, high levels of trust were strongly related to fewer symptoms of depression and anxiety. Higher levels of caring for others and spiritual activities were linked to less anxiety, and higher levels of connectedness with nature were tied to fewer feelings of anger.

The study, entitled “Spirituality and Negative Emotions in Individuals with Coronary Heart Disease” reveals the unique, important roles that specific spiritual attributes can play in helping us guard against negative emotions. It is published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing .

And although these particular findings relate to patients with coronary heart disease, the connection between spirituality and emotions (and their subsequent effects on physiology) applies to everyone. Gently replacing our negative feelings with thoughts of meaningfulness, caring for others and spiritual activities can work wonders.

As healer and author Karla McLaren said “When your emotions are allowed to take their proper place in your whole life, all healing is possible, because all energy is available.” In other words… As within, so without .

It is possible to access the same sense of well-being, clarity, inner freedom, and loving connection realized by the world’s meditation masters. We can do this by shifting our awareness in the midst of our daily lives. Shift into Freedom presents innovative teacher Loch Kelly’s training manual for actively participating in the evolution of your own consciousness.

Synthesizing insights from neuroscience and psychology with wisdom from the world’s contemplative traditions, Shift into Freedom offers an accessible and remarkably powerful series of meditations that lead us to a little-known natural capacity called “awake awareness.” Through an unfolding process of “small glimpses, many times,” these exercises shift us from a thought-based knowing to an awareness-based way of operating in the world. With continued practice, we learn to “unhook” from our customary home in our ego-based identity-and then sustain an embodied presence and relatedness known as “open-hearted awareness.” Loch Kelly teaches that is “the meeting place of awakening and growing up, where we have the capacity to handle a fully emotional, intimate life and act with authenticity and compassion.”

Learn more about:

  • How to separate awareness from thinking to realize that thoughts and emotions are not the center of who we are
  • How insights from neuroscience can help us learn how to embody awakening
  • Ego-identification, a pattern of thought that co-opts the body’s boundary program and creates a mistaken identity
  • The paradox of “being home while returning home”
  • Finding the off-switch for the chattering mind
  • How to intentionally and immediately shift into peace of mind any time of your day
  • Awakening as a natural process of human development, which unfolds as waking up, waking in, and waking out
  • Meditation practices for all phases of the journey of awakening and embodiment
  • Four stages of spiritual growth: recognition, realization, stabilization, and expression
  • Untying the “knots” in our mindbody system to liberate us from our deepest doubts and fears
  • How to move from deliberate mindfulness to effortless mindfulness and heart mindfulness
  • How to effortlessly focus without using attention
  • Discovering your innate happiness that is not dependent on circumstances
  • How to welcome and liberate sub-personalities after initial awakening
  • A user’s manual for your consciousness to help you free yourself from the limits of ego-identification and live from open-hearted awareness


Loch Kelly, MDiv, LCSW, is a teacher, consultant, and leader in the field of meditation and psychotherapy who was asked to teach by Mingyur Rinpoche and Adyashanti. The founder of the Open-Hearted Awareness Institute, he is an emerging voice in modernizing meditation, social engagement, and collaborating with neuroscientists to study how awareness training can enhance compassion and well-being.
Loch Kelly: Falling Awake

Loch describes how awakening is not something you can accomplish. Awake awareness is our natural condition and is equally available in each of us, as each of us now. We can learn how to intentionally shift awareness so that our true nature becomes primary, which changes how we view everything.
Loch Kelly – Awakening: A View with Some Room

This is a wonderful video from one of Loch’s classes. He describes in a beautifully simple way how we move from a limited, ego-centered view to an awake, spacious, and embodied feeling of Being. It’s not an animated video, but you will enjoy Loch’s animated style of communicating to you.

“The Journey After Awakening” Adyashanti & Loch Kelly

Awakening to our true nature does not mark the end of the spiritual path—it’s just the beginning. In this intimate and compelling dialogue, Adyashanti and Loch Kelly explore the journey after awakening.

Adyashanti, author of Emptiness Dancing, The Impact of Awakening, and True Meditation, dares all seekers of peace and freedom to take the possibility of liberation seriously. His spontaneous and direct teachings have opened the door for many seekers to awaken to their true nature and live an awakened life.

NOTE: Book best read on Kindle for IPAD due to large amount of images

In January of 2012, Robert Rabbin was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. The prognosis offered him was, statistically speaking, about nine months of life. It is now almost two years since that prediction and he is still with us.

In the middle of 2013, Robert, who has already published eight books and a couple hundred articles on the theme of self-awareness, began writing a series of 170-character expressions of his journey into the very depths of inner silence. With the help of his longtime graphic designer, Jane Green, put these expressions — verbal waves of wonder from the ocean of silence — onto images.

I decided to publish this collection of “memes” by Robert, because of the effect his words had on me. Because his words come from a place of silence, they awaken the presence of silence within the reader. And from silence springs forth waves of peace, understanding, and joy.

Certainly, we can all benefit from more peace, understanding, and joy, which is why I felt inspired to publish a collection of his words from silence and share them with you.

What touches you most is that each short expression speaks more about this extraordinary man’s life and thoughts than any 2000 page biography ever could.

If you are interested in living an inspired life, one rich with depth and peace and clarity, one overflowing with the presence of your own inner truth, you will want to read this book.


At 11 years of age, Robert began seeking answers to such perennial questions as Who am I? What is real? How shall I live?

His seeking took him on adventures throughout the world, from the beaches of Mexico to the forests of Finland, from the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California to the Sinai Desert of Israel, from Kabul, Afghanistan to Bangkok, Thailand. The list of jobs Robert held during these years include truck driver, drug dealer, mountain guide, baker, factory worker, and civilian employee of the Israeli Air Force.

In 1973, after a three-month overland trek that began in Chamonix, France, he entered India. There, he met Swami Muktananda Paramahamsa, with whom Robert lived and worked for the next 10 years.

Robert began his own work in 1985, as a distinctive self-awareness facilitator, leadership adviser, and author. He launched several ventures, including Catalysts for Clarity, Hamsa Institute for Enlightened Leadership, Truth for President, Radical Sages, and RealTime Speaking. In 2010, while living in Australia, Robert synthesized his almost 50 years of spiritual study, practice, and inner experience into The 5 Principles of Authentic Living.

In addition to presenting more than 300 of his signature seminars (currently called “Conversations on the High Wire”), Robert has honed his unique style of public speaking in numerous workshops, meetings, lectures, keynote speeches, and conference presentations. As a personal adviser, leadership coach, and public speaking guru, he has worked with a cultural cross-section of people, including corporate executives, professionals, rock musicians, best-selling authors, fashion designers, spiritual teachers, educators, and entrepreneurs.

Robert has published eight books and more than 200 articles on the themes of meditation, self-inquiry, authentic leadership, truthful self-expression, and spiritual activism. He authored a pioneering column for The New Leaders executive newsletter, called “The Corporate Mystic”; was commissioned to write original essays for three leading-edge anthologies on topics related to spirituality and authenticity in the workplace; and was interviewed for The Awakening West, a collection of conversations with contemporary Western wisdom teachers. He also wrote and produced a 30-minute documentary entitled Brilliant Business: A Roadmap to the 21st Century. Robert is a certified firewalk instructor who has designed and led numerous outdoor adventures for various organizations.
