In this astonishing spiritual autobiography, Valerie Freeman, a passionate, highly intelligent Australian woman of Russian descent, takes us with her as she embarks on the Great Journey, her search for ultimate truth. She is magnetically drawn to India, where, in the mid-twentieth century there are many ashrams, and many westerners looking for their gurus. There, she is safely guided to the door of her hidden Master. Their conversations range over the evolution of language, and the wisdom systems of the ancient Indus Valley civilisations millennia before the Christian Era. Her Master encourages her to examine her dreams, and she depicts those surreal subconscious landscapes in a glorious series of vibrantly coloured watercolour paintings. And he tells her that one day she will write an important book destined to bridge the consciousness of East and West. Valerie was a mystic, a spiritual warrior in a material and dogmatic world. She draws our attention to the golden fruit which is the object of her quest. It is nothing less than the utter surrender of the personality, and its transformation into the subjective Self of God. This is the fourth state of consciousness of the Hindu Upanishads. In the West, such a supreme state of understanding may be termed 'Christ Consciousness'.
