This is Scott's second book on non-duality, and it contains 365--one for each day of the year--pointers toward enlightenment. Each page lists a day of the month, a title, and a few paragraphs explaining and fleshing out the title in more detail.
Scott's writing is hardcore, pure, and potent. Whereas his first book, Love's Quiet Revolution, contained personal stories about a person named "Scott," this book is all business. Each page is loaded with landmines that have the potential to completely eviscerate the "I" that most of us take ourselves to be.
Of course, as the book's title suggests, these are merely "reflections" of "the ONE Life." The true essence of what Scott is pointing to can never be captured in words; just like the sweet scent of a rose can never truly be captured in words. However, Scott does an amazing job in painting a picture of what he is pointing to. To give you a taste, I picked a date at random:
More on the question of choice
Do take this question of choice seriously for one
moment. Simply look. What thought is going to
arise next? Can awareness know what thought is
going to appear before it appears? No, it cannot.
Therefore, there is no choice or control. Thinking
merely happens. The end of thought cannot be
found through thought. The end of seeking cannot
be found through seeking. In the story of you, you
believe you are going somewhere, to some future
moment of awakening. But you are not going
anywhere. More precisely, there is no "you" to go
anywhere. There is only thought happening. That
thought paints a picture of past that you call, "Who
you are." It paints a picture of future that you call,
"Who you are going to become." But you are not
thought. You are not the past or the future. Because
you are not thought, you cannot find yourself
through seeking, which is a dream of thought.
In seeing that the spiritual search is happening
all on its own, there is the possibility that awareness
will start to see it for what it really is--a dream of
thought. When awareness sees the dream of thought
known as "you and your spiritual search" and sees
that it is happening spontaneously and involuntarily,
all of the mental and emotional effort drops out of
the search. There is a natural resting into what is.
Not only are the above two paragraphs chocked full of powerful pointers, but you may find, as I have, that each time you read a passage a new insight may arise or a previously understood one may deepen. And this is just one day's worth of text... there are 364 more! Other topics covered include: The searching mind, Emotional traps, Anger, Achievement, Seeing versus Doing, Peace, Humility, to name a few.
In just a few short years, Scott Kiloby has emerged as one of the clearest non-duality teachers on the planet. This is no doubt due to his deep understanding of how the mind works, his clear seeing of reality, and his unique ability to give lucid explanations of "that which cannot be spoken of." Like a fine wine, this is one non-dual book that is to be savored slowly... and before you know it, you just might discover that the "I" you thought you were is slowly disappearing right before your eyes. And then, in a flash, you may just realize that it never existed in the first place!
