Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The world is awakening to a new consciousness. Some of us are gradually waking up, occasionally hitting the proverbial snooze button so that we can continue dreaming for a little longer. Others, however, have been woken up as if they were hit upside the head with a baseball bat. For those of us who have had such a radical awakening, we typically remember the event and the surrounding circumstances rather vividly. Lucid Living can be quite deceptive from its outward appearance. Just like Chuck Hillig's Enlightenment for Beginners, Lucid Living is a rather small book with large print which can be read in under an hour. But the message inside the book is obviously significant enough to awaken some of the most aware and conscious members of our group. That being the case, it might just be a good idea to have a group discussion about this little book. I came to read Lucid Living because my girlfriend, Kitty, had read it a few years back. She said it was the catalyst for her awakening to a new consciousness, and while I had had my own awakening in late 2007, I am always looking for material that helps to wake people up. Once I read Lucid Living I immediately ordered Tim's latest book, How Long is Now? As the synchronicity of things work out, Tim happened to be having a weekend retreat in San Francisco a few weeks later so we flew out there and attended. That event made such an impact on the two of us that we have encouraged Tim to fly out to Las Vegas for a week of events so that we can share him with our local Las Vegas spiritual community. He'll be in Las Vegas the last week of April through May 2nd, so if you're interested in joining our group, contact me via our website at Meetup dot Com slash AwarenessGroup (or you can go to Tim's website by googling him and reading about the events there.) The message from the San Francisco event that stuck with us was Tim's passion for his concept that he refers to as Both/And (as opposed to Either/Or). While seeking Enlightenment, Tim encountered many situations where people seemed torn between two perspectives. They seemed stuck on one side or the other, either fully spiritual or entirely materialistic; all about absolute reality or entrenched in the relative world of Maya. Tim encourages us to learn how to embrace both worlds so that we can have the freedom provided by understanding the illusory nature of this reality while maintaining a love and respect for the life that we have been living. If you're afraid that Enlightenment means that you'll become desireless and lose the joy of living, then you could use a good dose of Tim Freke.
