After a life-time studying the world's spiritual traditions, pioneering philosopher Tim Freke presents the mystical heart of spirituality in 8 transformative principles. From his personal experience he describes spiritual awakening as similar to the experience of lucid dreaming - except now while in the waking state. Awakening is lucid living. This astonishingly direct book points to an awakened state. Step by step it guides you through a radically new way of looking at the present moment, so you can experience a spiritual awakening as you are reading. It will take you less than an hour to read, but it could change your life for good. Since it was first published ten years ago Lucid Living has come to be seen by many as a modern spiritual classic. In this new edition Tim Freke reworks adds an 8th principle to account for the profound developments in his own understanding of awakening.

Excellent perspective on life.
Enjoyable, positive message, warm and inclusive! With simple words the author is inviting us to reflect on 8 insights about our perception of reality, what we assume it is and who we are. This is not a book with cult philosophical language, or contains an extensive speech full of arguments or debates, nor a compendium of practical exercises or mindfulness meditation techniques, or anything. Rather, it is a monologue with direct language, very personal, fast reading and simple prose. I have enjoyed the book and what I find valuable is the author's sincere intention to suggest a different way of living reality, more joyful and meaningful, through simple explanations of life and probably of what he himself has experienced in the exercise to expand his own consciousness. The message is positive and warm, as the author believes that if people live more lucidly in our lives, we will be more loving, and consequently impact the world beneficently. I myself have experienced states of joy, wholeness, where my heart is inflamed and my greatest desire is to share the joy and that we all become happy, interacting in harmony and coherence, with benevolent and deeply meaningful connections. My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
