So often we hear that there is nothing to do and no one there to do anything. And yet if we want to wake up, this teaching can be very frustrating. Return to Essence approaches the idea of choice and effort in a completely new and refreshing way. Here is an excerpt:
"You must make this choice to be give your attention to the moment over and over again until being present in the moment becomes automatic and your natural way of being. Making this choice takes an ongoing commitment to waking up and allowing essence to live through you."
The message is clear, simple, and full of promise. Waking up is no longer for the fortunate few. It is the most natural thing, and Return to Essence is a wonderful guide for those who are tired of seeking and don't want to postpone freedom any longer. --Laura Prue
While the pure advaitist may have trouble with the notion that we can align ourselves with the Absolute by doing anything (because we are not truly individuals at all but only the Self manifesting as it will), for those of us who choose to act as if we have some power to influence our experience of Life, this book is essential.
Gina Lake comes from the non-dual tradition, but her credentials also include a background in counseling psychology; she is also a gifted astrologer and channel. Her book is not an airy-fairy new age spin on non-dual philosophy and its application. It is an extremely well-written guidebook on the practical application of non-dualism to one's life so that one's experience becomes more and more enjoyable and adventurous and in harmony with the divine.
I love Gina's elucidation of the general energy patterns and life purposes of the astrological signs because they resonate with what I've come to see to be true.Read more ›
To quote from the introduction to Return to Essence: "The flow is the experience of who you really are as it moves through life. ... But how do you get there and how do you stay there?" This book answers those questions. Gina gives information and examples as well as practical exercises to support the material, especially helpful in showing you how to recognize the difference between ego-generated thoughts and direction coming from Essence (Source, your higher self, true self, god-self, or whatever way you refer to it).
If you've read Gina's earlier works, like 'Radical Happiness' or if you haven't but are beginning to see that there is a wonderful difference between following spirit and following ego and want more help, guidance and information, this book is for you. It has helped me recognize what is driving my decisions and actions, and makes it easier to get back 'in the flow' - which is a most rewarding place to be!
