I Am Deeply Impressed
Last night when...
Last night when I got my advance copy, I decided to make a night shift to read the book -- and it really took a night. But six hours or so, later I could put aside the last page, knowing that I read a book that will leave a big mark in our cultural landscape.
After the first chapter I was immersed in a deep enlightened perspective and I know that this writing will have the power to open for many this sacred space. It gave a deep authentic experience of what Andrew was describing through the pages.
At the same time this book is a hands-on manual how to live an evolutionary enlightened live. I can see many living with this book reading chapters again and again because this is a textbook that shows you how to do what you need to do in order to live it - not just theory or philosophy, but path and practice.
There is an intriguing hands-on rationality that flows through the sentences argument by argument, example by example to open up for the reader an evolutionary enlightened worldview. It is so convincing common sense in the way how it leads one to the most unheard-of perspectives.
And, again and again I was excited by the tone of the writing, how Cohen communicates with the reader as an enlightened master and a human being who is talking to a human being. It is this tone that will allow many to follow to the open horizons of this teaching.
And in the end of the book, the last pages open up to a big cultural vision, a vision that places this teaching firmly in our time and in our culture showing a perspective where we as humanity and particular we, the lucky ones, who have so much privilege can set the next step for us as a human species.

Some it was "over my head" I kept feeling like I had missed some basic premise he was trying to convey????? Still there seemed to be gems of insight that made the reading worthwhile and maybe later I might "get it"!
