Overview

1st Edition - Also check expanded 3rd Edition!
For thousands of years a very small minority of the world's population has achieved Enlightenment - or at least some state that was claimed to be Enlightenment. The common aspect of most of these accomplishments was an implacable will. Witness the Buddha's vow to remain under the Bodhi tree; Teresa of Avila's three-year struggle with paralysis; Ramakrishna's willingness to undergo any hardship. More recently witness Hawkins' twelve-year retreat and McKenna's spiritual autolysis. There are many more, but rarely more than three a century. We have found that the systematic daily practice of alignment with a higher power has brought much higher levels of Enlightenment. These higher levels of Enlightenment have enhanced general happiness and equanimity, and brought many other benefits. The purpose of this book is to describe the daily practice and to encourage others to explore it.
