12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By John Paul Greening on February 7, 2003
Format: Paperback
I found the Texture of Being a very down to earth, clearly written, book, which I think would be readable and understandable by most readers with even just a slight interest in spirituality - and advaita, in particular. The author offers simple, clear, observations that do make one stop and think. He also offers a practical approach to living the philosophy he writes about. Much recommended. Would appeal to people who have read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

Format: Paperback
This is an absolute gem of a book. Written in a smooth and yet elegant style, `The Texture of Being' is essentially a meditation on the nature of our true selves - the unlimited, timeless consciousness that unites all beings as One. Devoid of the technical language that normally hallmarks many texts on advaita (or nonduality), Roy's book considers the way in which we can balance living in the world with the knowledge that, despite all the stresses and strains of everyday existence, life is essentially a manifestation of something greater, untainted by suffering and change. And access to this underlying ocean of peace, of oneness, is available to all of us, right here, right now. `The Texture of Being' is a beautiful book and well worth savouring time and again.

Format: Paperback
Roy Whenary, a poet and writer/producer of meditational music, brings thirty years of spiritual inquiry and primarily the influences of J. Krishnamurti, Nisargadatta Maharaj and Jean Klein, to produce The Texture of Being. The purpose of this book is to show how to practice Advaita in daily life. The intended audience would be those interested in serious, general spirituality-psychology. Refreshingly free of quotes by intellectual and spiritual giants, this book is about Roy speaking to the reader respectfully and with a poetic grace. Though divided into 19 chapters, and each chapter into about 4-6 readings, the reader may open the book anywhere and find immersion within a brief, self-contained passage. Here is an example:

"Everything that you feel attached to and everything that you own, including your sense of self, will end. When you enter deep dreamless sleep, this is what happens. But you re-awaken, with your memory intact. Then your struggle re-begins. However, there is no need to struggle in this life. Struggle is caused by identification with this bodymind mechanism and all that it attaches itself to. Stand back from all this. This will end. This has no ultimate reality or significance. In deep dreamless sleep, you re-connect with your true nature. This refreshes your mind-body mechanism, freeing it from the tensions and anxieties of the `person'. If you did not make this connection regularly, you would be trapped in the mind continuously, and the mind is a prison from which you already spend most of your waking life trying to escape."

The Texture of Being is recommended for those becoming familiar with self-inquiry and the literature of nonduality. Whenary speaks as a knowing, trusted friend or guide. His theme is how to practice Advaita in daily life.

I can only add my actual experience of this book, which is pleasurable and relaxing. It gently lets "you" off the hook by continually returning to the feeling/silence/stillness of it all that cannot adequately be put into words. It has a rythmic poetic healing quality. It is a short book, under 100 pages or so, and it doesn't require you to think. Everything Mr. Katz said in his review resonates well with me, and I think his comment regarding the author's unique approach of maintaining focus on "daily life" while exploring the texture of pure being, is part of what makes this book so enjoyable to read.

Format: Paperback
"The Texture Of Being" points directly to the ineffability of "what is." It's a clear invitation to openly embrace your humanity in the light of who you really are ... deep down. Highly recommended.
