Format: Paperback
Having read more spiritual books than I can remember it comes as a great shock to read one that stopped me cold in my tracks. Harding has found a way to stop the world. His solution is to "look for yourself" into the nature of being - no techniques, no gurus, no formulas, just look for yourself, and if you actually do look in the way that he suggests, you will learn to "see". This book is a revelation.

Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful presentation of Douglas Harding's teachings, experiments, etc. In his writings and his workshops Harding has, for the past several decades, provided a way of looking (literally) at life itself that can bring one to understand what mystics from all ages and cultures have been talking about. What he encourages readers to do is marvellously simple and profound. This book includes the contents of two of his workshops and several interviews with him. This brings out a side of Harding that has not always been accessible in his other books. He is an excellent writer but the spontaneity and liveliness he shows in person really comes across here. He also addresses many questions that people have when encountering his work. I think this book would serve equally well as an introduction to Harding's work or as an expansion on it for those already familiar with it. It is a welcome addition to what is already, in my experience, a life-changing body of work.

I am 68 and have spent many of my years looking for something this book points out in the very first chapter. The "exercises" discussed are designed to redirect ones attention to the most obvious but consistantly overlooked aspect of our being. I doubt that any thing I have to say about it would convey my deep appreciation and enthusiasim for the teaching that is presented here. As the author says, try it for your self, it works.

Format: Paperback
Re-cognizing your Original Face is perhaps the simplest ONE thing a human can SEE. This book is about totally "seeing", not reflecting,interpreting, or doing something so called,"SPIRITUAL". Following patiently the Authors insructions to experiment with the contents of this book,ones true Nature is experienced through seeing the simpleness of being.Becoming as a child,innocent,trusting, and open to the present moment, temporarily leaving the intellect(reasoning mind) behind, one can't deny the re-discovery of who you really really are rather than who you think you are. This rediscovery is in plain view. Open, transparent, and absolutely obvious, you'll shift most naturally to what you've always already been.I give this book five stars because it pointed to something ordinary to me that I saw on my own, that was always already there and ANYONE can see it, even YOU, if you dare LOOK!

Format: Paperback
I really liked this book because of its strong practical outlook. It could be titled : Some useful tricks to remember your true nature. However I would have liked some more insights. I hope I am not unfair to Douglas Harding but, reading it, I sometimes got the feeling the teaching was based on hearsay. The book is based on conversations and on workshops that he conducts and it has this kind of workshop marketing flavour sometimes. I do not agree with the assumptions that this is even shorter Short Cut. The "tricks" are helpful to remember who we are but they do not form a true teaching> It might be a shortcut but how far do you really want to go ??
