A step-by-step presentation of Direct-Path-style nondual inquiry, from beginning to end and beyond. Features 40 experiments that guide you experientially from simple perception all the way to the sweet collapse of the witness into pure consciousness.

Have you ever done nondual inquiry and said to yourself, "I understand it intellectually but I don't feel it. It's not my experience!" If so, The Direct Path could be for you.

This book is the "missing manual" to the Direct Path. For the first time in print, Direct-Path inquiry is presented from beginning to end and beyond, in a "user-friendly" way. The core of the book is a set of 40 experiments designed to help dissolve the most common nondual sticking points from simple to subtle. The experiments cover the world, the body, the mind, abstract objects and witnessing awareness. You are taken step by step from the simple perception of a physical object all the way to the collapse of the witness into pure consciousness. Your "take-away" is that there's no experiential doubt that you and all things are awareness, openness and love.

Also included are three tables of contents, illustrations, an index, and a section on teaching and the notion of a "post-nondual realization."

This book can be utilized on its own or as a companion volume to the author's ‘Standing as Awareness’.

About the Author

Dr. Greg Goode is known for a unique combination of penetrating insight, comfort with both Eastern and Western sources, and a down-to-earth sense of humor. He is the author of ‘Standing as Awareness’, ‘Nonduality in Western Philosophy’ and many popular articles. Greg studied psychology at the University of California, and philosophy at the University of Rochester and the Universität zu Köln. He became drawn to self-inquiry initially through the work of Brand Blanshard, George Berkeley, the Chinmaya Mission and Arsha Vidya Gurukulam. Greg's spiritual search came to its sweet conclusion through the Direct-Path influences of Francis Lucille and Sri Atmananda. Greg is a member of the American Philosophical Practitioners Association and serves as the technical consultant for their peer-reviewed journal, ‘Philosophical Practice’.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Grand Follow-Up to 'Standing as Awareness' 30. August 2012
Von Bibliophile - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is bigger and more comprehensive than the first book. This has to be one of the most pragmatic books in the Advaita school of thought. Greg is so very good at giving you simple, practical tools and experiments for verifying for yourself the truth of oneness in your everyday life situations.

When the first book was published, the author had promised a sequel. And he does keep his promise! By the way, I also wanted to thank Mr. Goode for personally responding to a few queries that I had emailed him. I was thrilled to see the reply. I think that is another sign of his integrity. Thank you!

I highly recommend this book to both the tyro as well as the experienced seeker.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Dogmatic repetition, preferentially selected experiments, not open minded experiential exploration of what is. 16. November 2014
Von Pete Ashly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was hoping for an interesting, non-philosophical exploration of conscious awareness. What I found instead started right away with pushing Adviata dogma. "In our direct experience there are no objects out there". The experiments deconstruct experience in interesting ways, but rather than pointing out that how the human body constructs a virtual reality experience which is only a loose approximation to the external environment, the results are repetitively interpreted for us as "no direct experience of objects outside". But interestingly there are no experiments which include the many ways our body apparatus is the only possible explanation for the illusions we see. What about optical illusions between bright and dark which show how perception makes colors in the brain? How about an experiment which shows the existence of the blind spot, or more precisely how the blind spot is "papered over" by the brain constructing a consistent image which hides reality. If we are conscious witnessing awareness why would a blind spot exist except as a defect in a physical infrastructure. How about a "rubber hand" experiment which shows that the "subtle body" of sensation is easily tricked into inhabiting a false form? In short, the experiments are rigged to break down sensation to show that single sensations in isolation are not reliable or dual. Sure, there is no little man in the head looking at a screen. In the hearing, only the heard, which is normally a good pointer to human sensation being nondual with the stimulus, but in this case is dogmatically turned into "stimulus does not exist".

Around the middle of the book, there is a discussion about witnessing awareness versus sentience. But interestingly there are no experiments showing that pervading witnessing awareness can be experienced when one is not sentient. Why is that? Let me experience witnessing awareness with the brain pulled out of my body, that would be good evidence. Buddhists would call this sort of thinking "Fetter of desire for immaterial existence"

This is not nonduality, this is duality of the worst form, a mental projection justifying itself. Nonduality is not what we think, nonduality is that the cosmos thinks us. Nonduality is deconstruction of the separated form rather than reinforcement of a nonfalsifiable notion of a separate all pervasive awareness.

If you want to experiment with nonduality in an open dogmatic way try Adyashanti's Falling into Grace, which rather than pushing dogma in your face uses the most subtle childhood like experiences to deconstruct the most difficult illusions. If you want to explore more about how the brain creates an illusory dualistic world inside itself and consciousness creates our thought experiences through an autobiographical narrative, read Ramachandran's Phantoms in the Brain. If you want to understand how conscious awareness is constructed from the ground up by the underlying intelligence of the cosmos, read The selfish gene by Dawkins to see how molecules are alive and smart. If you want to see how the universe is thinking through you read Freewill by Harris and Taboo against knowing who you are by Watts. If you want to see how the brain emotionally creates or accepts conceptualized "truth" through unconscious thinking read Thinking fast and Slow.

Please don't tell me "I don't get it", because I've already gotten that "that is me" in the worst possible way. This is just a sidetrack, and put on the nondual thinking cap of Socrates and Buddha to keep you out of the weeds here, because this is more staring at a cave wall thinking one has found something.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent work. Kindle version needs improvement. 15. März 2013
Von Bruce McElhaney - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I can't really add much to the great reviews of this fine book. To say it is ground breaking would be an understatement. It is the clearest writing on the direct path that I've encountered. And I remain indifferent as to who published it, or has reviewd it. This book stands on its own merits and deserves the highest rating. However, there is an annoyance asociated with the Kindle edition of this book. My Kindle version suffers from the, "Goldilocks syndrome." I found it difficult to find a comfortable font size with my Kindle Fire. Font 7 is too small for my eyesight while 8 is about double in size, making it too big. In addition, some of the diagrams and charts are quite small, but could Not be enlarged along with the fonts. I plan on purchasing the print version because the book is definitely worth it. Bottom line, I recommend you get the print version and pass on the Kindle verson, unless your rightful nickname is, Hawkeye.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to get a handle on 15. Dezember 2012
Von tao man - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting book, arguing for a kind of enlightenment based on direct experience. There are aspects of it that elude me and it seems overly argumentative in its presentation. But that could just be me.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Non-Dual book out there! 13. Juli 2014
Von JB - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an unbelievably clear and precise book. No New Age/Spiritual fluffy talk. Just straight on instructions for what you need to do to start perceiving Reality. I would recommend this book to anyone who is into Non-Duality / Advaita-Vendanta / Enlightenment...actually, I would say that you are foolish if you do not start with this book.
