Overview

One man’s quest to achieve enlightenment through a life of meditation, spirituality, mindful living, self-inquiry, and martial arts.


  • True life story demonstrating the many benefits of meditation, based on the author’s 44 years of daily meditation, more than 40 years of yoga and tai chi, and more than 20 years of qigong.




  • A guidebook to living a life of spirituality.




  • Written by a follower of the “Classic” spiritual masters: Sri Ramana Maharshi, Paramahansa Yogananda, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Yogi Amrit Desai, and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.




  • This book lays out the real-life reasons why you should meditate, and the many benefits you can hope to achieve from your efforts. It does not tell or show you how to meditate.


Journey with the author on a life-long quest to uncover the Ultimate Truth, that hidden reality that is the very essence of you and all that surrounds you. To answer the simple question “What’s it all about?”

The first part of the book takes you on his more than 40-year journey of discovery, including trips to India, Egypt, and the sacred regions of the Himalayan mountains. Join his meditations at many week and months-long meditation training sessions. Enjoy his storytelling, parables, and adventures in self-discovery. Let his most personal experiences be your inspiration to start your own journey.

Proven methods of self-realization and profound revelations are discussed in great (yet non-judgmental) detail as you travel his inspiring road to what the sages term "Enlightenment!"

The second part of the book has the author attempting to describe the indescribable, as he shares what he has learned through his lifelong personal spiritual journey.

“Enlightenment is the realization of one’s true Self, our true Being. Not our constantly changing body, thoughts, and emotions that we take to be who we are, but rather, the never changing, pure awareness, or consciousness, that lets us say: my body, my thoughts, my emotions.”

Happiness, contentment, and tranquil well-being are all parts of what he learned and experienced, leading him to finally pronounce “I’m just this seemingly nutty, crazy guy, who learned not to take anything too seriously, as all is not as it appears!”
