Overview

From a spiritual master unlike any,
a spiritual masterpiece like no other.

AUTHOR, TEACHER AND SPIRITUAL MASTER Jed McKenna tells it like it's never been told before. A true American original, Jed succeeds where countless others have failed by reducing this highest of attainments — Spiritual Enlightenment — to the simplest of terms.

Effectively demystifying the mystical, Jed astonishes the reader not by adding to the world's collected spiritual wisdom, but by taking the spirituality out of spiritual enlightenment. Never before has this elusive topic been treated in so engaging and accessible a manner.

A masterpiece of illuminative writing, Spiritual Enlightenment is mandatory reading for anyone following a spiritual path. Part exposé and part how-to manual, this is the first book to explain why failure seems to be the rule in the search for enlightenment — and how the rule can be broken.

Spiritual Enlightenment follows Jed through several days and nights in his "accidental ashram" as he answers in simple yet illuminating language the questions and concerns of his spiritually diverse students. Vampires and zombies; airborne adventure; Maya, Goddess of Delusion; and Lara Croft all find their way seamlessly into these pages. The book also contains carefully selected quotations and poems from the world's great masters, as well as original poems by the author.

Says Jed:

The truth is that enlightenment is neither remote nor unattainable.
It is closer than your skin and more immediate than your next breath.
If we wonder why so few seem able to find that which can never be
lost, we might recall the child who was looking in the light for a coin he dropped in the dark because "the light is better over here."

Mankind has spent ages looking in the light for a coin that awaits us not in light and not in dark, but beyond all opposites. That is the message of this book: Spiritual enlightenment, pure and simple.
