Waves Of Wonder – 65 Reflections From The Ocean Of Silence by Robert Rabbin (Author), John Anderson (Foreword), Jane Green (Illustrator)



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.
