Format: Paperback
In this, his latest book, Charlie points clearly and relentlessly to the absolute absence of a separate entity. He confronts the paradox head-on: There is no separate, controlling entity to be found, and this includes the assumed entity (you) who goes looking for it. The seeking ends when the belief in a seeker ends.

Quoting Charlie:

"While in many of the dialogues and pointers there appears to be a message suggesting the seeker undertake some `prescribed practice in order to attain some imagined state for the `person', it is crucial to understand that there is no seeker, and there never was a person who `can attain' some awakening or liberation FOR THE `PERSON.'"

"What some call `enlightenment' is simply a natural and UN-caused dis-identifying with a `me' as the controller, or doer, or creator/manager of Life. This is the end of that `me as seeker'."

"When there is true Awakening, NOBODY WAKES UP!"

If you believe you're a seeker, then read this book. It's a nice contribution to Advaita Vedanta. Thanks Charlie.

Many books in today's age of Internet Spirituality can be found - the "self-realized guru" is more available today than at any time in history, writing books, holding satsang, and offering tidbits for those "fortunate enough" to be in their presence. Yet when reading "Thy Will Be Done: Awakening to The Eternal State" by Charlie Hayes, the overwhelming feeling is that this Charlie Hayes character is genuine. Charlie doesn't care to travel the world gathering seekers as followers. Charlie doesn't make a fortune selling books. Charlie is simply a portal through which this clear, direct and tough-as-nails message expresses.

Charlie's latest book is simply a brickbat to the forehead. There is a sense in this book that it is likely the last book which will come - the earnestness of expression is breathtaking. Charlie has always expressed in a take-no-prisoners way, yet this book transcends even that. It is reminiscent of Nisargadatta in his last days, in his last book, where all possible fat has been trimmed and only the pure heart of the message remains. Charlie wastes absolutely no space or time in getting to the point...

"There is no separate controller in "you" or in "anyone else" INCLUDING the conceptual believed-in God! In the rediscovering of this, there is the complete and utterly natural realization that there is no individual doer anywhere, not in you, not in anyone or anything else. There is ONLY WHAT IS." - Introduction To The Living Gift Of Eternal Unknowing

This direct and piercing message holds no sympathy, no pity and no compromise for the seeker wafting on the edges of spirituality. It is either jump in head-first or stay clear of the carnage.

If the reader is not already familiar with Charlie Hayes' work, in the book one will notice an adeptness at removing or helping the reader to "see through" the sense of a separate "personal me" each time it tries to raise its head. It's as if Charlie has already seen every question or wanna-be objection that has ever come over the pike, and knows how to deftly handle it. By providing pointers, examples, or by asking questions of the reader--every type of argument that a so-called separate personal self or ego might try to raise--is dealt with. Charlie's relaxed, informal, plain-talk style also helps debunk the myth that "enlightenment" is reserved only for some kind of spiritual elite. Then it goes on to make clear why there really isn't such a thing! Thankfully, Charlie doesn't sugar-coat either, but makes clear that it requires one to Stop, Look and Listen. The placement of wonderful quotes at key places throughout the text is an added bonus.

Thy Will Be Done, is the second book by Charlie Hayes that I have read, and as with You Are Unborn, I love both the message and the manner in which it is presented. His subject, nonduality, is something so paradoxical and counterintuitive that many readers are hesitant to tackle it. But the teachings in this book are clear, direct, and unambiguous pointers to the true nature of life, what we all are. Written in the everyday vernacular that we are accustom to, their meaning is never clouded by jargon or dogma. One might imagine the author's writing as guidance from an older brother, heart-felt advice and wisdom couched in deep sincerity and love. As the author would explain himself, this book in truth has been written by Life for Life. In the wholeness of what is, there are no divisions or separation, no individuals, no authors, no readers, no entities of any kind. Charlie Hayes is pointing to the fact that you are not what you think, not separate and vulnerable as you believe, but Life itself, perfect as you are. He knows what joy and freedom can come from seeing this, and is determined to help you realize the same fact. There is nothing to do, and nowhere to go. You may at first have a hard time grasping such a message, but there is something within you, buried under a lifetime of conditioning, that is yearning for it - the Divine at the core of your very being. I highly recommend you give it a try!
