I was walking through the bookstore and I noticed that on the cover that the book will turn my world inside out. It did its job by getting my attention and I wondered what would be so surpising. I found that the suprise was life itself.

This book does a wonderful job at pointing at the extraordinary miracle of life. It brings your awareness to the present moment where the fact that this very moment is happening is truly amazing. This is a fact that many people seem to look over and take advantage of. It may seem so ordinary that existence acutally exists, but one can't deny that for existence to exist is an absolute mystery.

The book also points out the fundamental oneness of awareness. This oneness is what many mystics of the past have tried to convey. The only difference with this book and the mystics of the past is that the mystics of the past use clouded religious terms, which can make their message hard to understand. This book presents mysticism in terms of our time and situation. This material may have been all said before, but I think this type of material needs to be said over and over again for everybody to wake up.

Hope this was helpful.

Peace and Blessings on your journey.

I love the Timothy Freke writings and this book will be awakening to people who have not deeply studied Buddism or Timothy's previous Gnostic slanting books.It is a very small book that uses a page for each paragraph. However let me sum his book up and save you the purchase price:

WE ARE ALL ASLEEP IN THE ILLUSION THAT WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND THAT WE HAVE A BODY AND A MIND AND HAVE THOUGHTS. HOWEVER WE CAN WAKE UP BY REALIZING THAT WE ARE NOT HUMAN WE ARE SIMPLY THE AWARENESS THAT PERCEIVES THE ILLUSION OF US BEING A HUMAN WITH A BODY.THE UNIVERSE IS NOT EXTERNAL, OUR TRUE UNIVERSE IS WHAT THE MIND CREATES FOR OUR AWARENESS THROUGH OUR SENSES.ALL OF OUR REALITY HAPPENS INSIDE OF OUR AWARENESS NOT OUTSIDE.YOUR THOUGHTS,BODY,MIND,BRAIN,SENSES,AND NAME ARE NOT YOU, YOU ARE THE ONE THAT WITNESSES ALL THESE THINGS. WAKE UP!

The first thing I noticed was, the title of the book - Lucid Living.

(Great title)

The second thing I noticed was, that it was small.

(I love that)

The third thing I noticed was, I originally intended to find Sue M. Watkins' new book.

But before I could reach for her book, this little companion caught my attention

By the way the title of Susan's new book - What A Coincidence!: The wow! factor in synchronicity and what it means in everyday life.

(I love noticing how that works)

Some comments, FWIW, about Seth and Jane Roberts since it has already been mentioned. - I've been reading Jane Roberts and Seth for that last 25 years(I was a teenager when I first started reading her). I directly attribute my success and confidence to the "answers and authority", within me, that Seth so often encouraged me to seek and experience. The Seth material is rich, complex, and open ended. In fact one of the appealing aspects about Seth for me, was his constant encouragement to go within and his admonition that the Seth material is NOT to become the new dogma.

This little book by Mr. Freke, is an awesomely concise introduction and/or reminder of some of the very profound insights offered by Jane and Seth. I applaud the author.

A suggestion for some reviewers - If something strikes you as useful, then appreciate it. If it does not, move on. If I may say so, keep your energy/feelings open and hold on to that seeking impulse which initiated you desire. There is no need to prove or disprove (be stuck). Appreciate, share, and keep on. Illumination can be experienced in the "darndest" of places.

Timothy Freke presents a series of lighthearted yet poignant philosophical ideas about the nature of reality. He says that we're all living in a dream, and we can wake from this dream by just choosing to change our focus in life. Without value judgements, he challenges us to consider an alternate reality - one that is more real and meaningful than what we think we are experiencing. I appreciated his direct approach, his economy with words, and his humor. The humor seemed a little condescending at times, but it was included to remind us of the central theme without getting bogged down in overly serious philosophical rumination. There is a lot of meaning packed into this tiny book that, as the title suggests, can be read in an hour. This book also happens to be very elegant in design, which makes it a great gift now that I have read it!

I was sceptical about this self-proclaimed one hour read. I have read dozens of books on personal development but this one really hit me between the eyes. This little book offers an opportunity to get the perspective of what many authors say in days of reading like eg. "I Am That" by Nisagardatta Maharaj or the "The Taboo of Knowing Who you Really Are" by Alan Watts etc. In one hour reading, Freke's book can change your life.

Timothy draws a parallel to the three dimensional images that you cannot always see at first glance, sometimes not all. That inversion that he introduces is like that. Some people will read this book and miss the power of his powerful message. It is a message that all the sages, all the books, arguably the gnostic gospels and even the Bible, is pointing to. I am.

Of the hundred books on my shelf, this has to be the most powerful in its simplicity. One gets the inversion of that I am NOT in the world, but that the world is in me. Take that hour to read it.
