When you identify less with your mind and physical form and become more aware of your formless and timeless essence within, you have the potential to discover "There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart." —Chandogya Upanishad. Deep within you is the real secret to true peace and happiness. Each of the twenty-five chapters presents a spiritual voyage toward your inner, authentic self. Exploring the shores of human-beingness ever more deeply, you may come to realise the “soul is the lighthouse—the light that guides us safely home.” By simply experiencing life without distraction from the negative mind, you see through personal drama to your truest nature. "It is only the mind which appears as the world and as bondage; there is no world other than the mind. On inquiry, this mind turns out to be nothing more than ripples (thoughts) in the still ocean of Pure Awareness." —The Ribhu Gita. Pure awareness is an art that requires practice to quiet the surface of your over-active mind and still the rippling waters of your emotional seas. Awakening is recognising you are the timeless spaciousness for all appearances of the world, illuminated by the light that shines within. You stand at the bow of your ship. The sky is clear, the sea is calm. "...Now voyager, sail thou forth to seek and find." —Walt Whitman Colour illustrations are best enjoyed by reading the paperback version or viewing on a colour-screen device.

    This book is somewhat outside the sphere I usually read, so I'm not sure how removed from the target audience I actually am. There was a lot of beautiful imagery, and it was readable, but I think the boat-trip metaphor might have been a bit too thick for me to really grasp what was being conveyed; I'm sure this book will appeal to those in the target demographic.

There was a lot of beautiful imagery, and it was readable, but I think the boat-trip metaphor might have been a bit too thick for me to really grasp what was being conveyed; I'm sure this book will appeal to those in the target demographic. I think one of the things that really prevented me from engaging in the desired exercise was the constant reliance on Columbus and how he went against popular belief to achieve his goals. At the time flat-earth theory was pretty much dead in the water, and what was really being held against Columbus was the fact that his proposed voyage was for a trip that was a third of the current estimates of Earth's circumference (which had been worked out to remarkable precision back in the days of ancient Greece) meaning that him and his crew would have starved to death long before reaching India, it was only by luck that America was there that his expedition wasn't a total waste. Knowing this kind of took the prose out of the noble example being set forth. An interesting book for those with interest in the subject. Plenty of food for thought.

    Pure Poetry in both prose and images... A syn-esthetic adventure for both Heart and Soul. A magnificent voyage through mind to the illuminating Soul... A learning experience, where silence bears music and the night sky becomes the background for the birth of stars... The pictures, true delight! The colors are superb, the drawings mostly symbolic without ever being weird or "complex" (as in "mind complex") but rather clear and crystalline as gems, always so easy to understand because they are so c Pure Poetry in both prose and images...

The colors are superb, the drawings mostly symbolic without ever being weird or "complex" (as in "mind complex") but rather clear and crystalline as gems, always so easy to understand because they are so close to our heart. Congratulations to the Writer, the Illustrator and the Editor! What a great team! Thank you, Robin, for giving me this chance to read and meditate this wonderful work of Art.

    I recommend this inspiring book to anyone who is on a journey of self awareness and connectedness. It reminded me of things I had forgotten, introduced me to some new ways to look at things and rounded out some incomplete concepts for me with beautifully imagined metaphors. Filled with great quotes from great minds and I'm not sure if it was intended by the author, but I found some great imagery tools for use in meditation.

    This book falls into the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, suggesting the "now" as a self awareness and giving interesting information on how to get to a state of awareness. It reads almost as a poetry book, there are several beautiful quotes from famous motivators/writers/poets etc, and the pictures illustrating the pages are just breathtaking. I read the ebook version, and believe the print version would mostly look like a coffee table book! For those who like self help books, this is a beautiful re This book falls into the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, suggesting the "now" as a self awareness and giving interesting information on how to get to a state of awareness.
