About the Author

Scott Kiloby began writing about and pointing to enlightenment after awakening into the realization of Oneness.  In this realization, it was seen that the story of Scott as a separate self is a fiction and that this story was the cause of unnecessary suffering and seeking.  Scott's central message is that enlightenment is not a goal to reach in time or an idea learned from the past. It is the timeless presence that you already are. That presence is like a non-conceptual opening through which the continuous flow of everything arises, including every concept, emotion, state, and experience. Although we use concepts to communicate for conventional purposes, the separation they seem to point to can be seen through completely.  That is what this book is about.  Inseparability or "nonduality."  All that is left in that collapse is an unconditional love of what is. Scott is the author of three books, "Love's Quiet Revolution: The End of the Spiritual Search", "Reflections of the One Life: Daily Pointers to Enlightenment" and his latest e-book is entitled "Living Realization".

This is a wonderful way to be reminded on a daily basis of who we are.

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.
M. Jeffreys
Reflections of the One Life is a series of clear, simple pointers to the reality of what is.

Format: Paperback
With Scott Kiloby's characteristically light and effortless touch, this book offers one mini-essay for each day of the year. The overall message is that enlightenment is your birthright, as well as your nature at this very moment.

Scott's primary image in these reflections is space - the space between objects, the space of objects, and the space from which objects take shape. Using this image, Scott points in many different ways.

Some pointers offer encouragement and practical tips, such as how to understand the common experience of "getting it" then "losing it." Or how to understand the ego usurping the spiritual search. Other reflections focus on dealing with everyday ups and downs, such as family issues, rejection, social pressure, criticism, worry, resentment, anger, anxiety, illness, and taking things personally.

Other pointers offer relief from conceptual confusion. Scott provides clear and loving antidotes to false ideas about enlightenment, including the goal of being in a thought-free state, or attaining spaciousness in the future, sneaking up on "this," experiencing only pleasure and not pain, trying to stay present, maintaining an enlightened story, and other occluding notions.

And other pointers are simple celebratory songs about topics such as spaciousness, being, openness, un-caused joy, peace, simplicity, direct tasting, compassion, love, liberation, thisness, seeing truth in all things, and freedom from the path itself.

The book would be perfect to place on your nightstand and use for daily reminders. Each one of its 365 reflections is a gentle, light-hearted, person-to-person gift.

In this wonderfully clear book Scott Kiloby gives us a daily reflection which reminds us that enlightenment is not difficult or far away in the future or something to be attained after long years of struggle and effort. He is so skillful in pointing out that it is our concepts and insistence that there is something to get in the future that stand in the way of 'This' - simple awareness of what is, here and now. He de-bunks every fundamentalism and trap that the mind can latch onto even when it thinks it has got hold of the one and only interpretation of non-duality or enlightenment. I have been listening to Scott's refreshing communication of this subtle subject for some time, and this book will repay reading and re-reading if you finally want to be rid of the seeking game.

Format: Paperback
"Reflections of the One Life" is the book to read every day and to keep beside you, helping you to see through the fog of distorted appearances. At the same time, this work takes on all of the issues of everyday life that appear as obstacles to such clarity and to joyful living. A most deep and clear challenge to conceptual, mental constructs as a true reality, Scott Kiloby's book will point you beyond a reified version of phenomena. "Reflections of the One Life" is an inspired and brilliant spiritual work that guides the reader toward penetrating realization and peace.

Format: Paperback
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:

January 18

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.

If you have not yet been introduced to Scott Kiloby, then I envy you. I say that because you are about to have the exquisite pleasure of meeting one of the brightest stars and clearest lights in the ever-expanding universe of non-dual teachings.

I remember almost a decade ago when I read the first few pages of Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. I immediately sent out an email to everyone I knew, declaring that there was a new Buddha on the planet. I've not had to apologize for that.

A few of the many milestones since that time have been my initial reading of Nisargadatta's I Am That, the first time I heard Adyashanti in satsang, the first time I did Byron Katie's The Work and every time I listen to her virtually sing the text of A Thousand Names for Joy on audio.

Scott Kiloby is one of these rare few, a Teacher among teachers, a Buddha among buddhas. Like Adyashanti, and unlike so many other good, kind and helpful teachers, Scott's view of Truth is not only piercing, it is broad, incredibly thoughtful and generously inclusive. He is also a very well read, smart-as-a-whip guy who is a good writer drawing from a wealth of spiritual context, all of which helps nail his message down like a comfortable hammer in a fine carpenter's hand.

I discovered Scott quite by "accident"--his second book was an Amazon-suggested buy for me. I took their advice and haven't looked back. I opened the Amazon box, pulled out the book, sat down, and the very first page I read of Reflections of the One Life, Daily Pointers to Enlightenment sat me against the back of my chair. I put the book down in paused reverence.
