By Bruce McElhaney on March 3, 2006
Don't allow your mind to be put off by the "Sailor Bob" moniker. He is the real deal. Over the years, I've read what seems like hundreds of books on higher consciousness and spirituality. Very few have offered the clear and direct message contained in this little book. This is the essence of, That I Am. Some may dismiss it as being over-simplistic and feel the need for a sledgehammer approach. Not necessary, or helpful. Do yourself a big favor and read the book. Then Stop, and be what you are.

"What's Wrong with Right Now ...
Unless You Think About It?"
-by "Sailor" Bob Adamson

"Sailor" Bob is, in a word, the Real Deal. Like his Teacher, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (whose Teachings were popularized in the book "I Am That" from Acorn Press), Bob points unwaveringly to what is Real ... Are you Present and aware? Can you ever say you do not exist? There must be awareness itself to say 'I am not aware!"

At the same time Bob shows us what is NOT real. "Are you separate, an entity? Find it and show it to me." This approach is in the time-tested tradition called "Advaita," yet Bob steadfastly refuses the title of Guru and eschews the whole idea of a Guru and a Disciple as ignorance and duality.

The guy is Bang ON.

So what is a visitor or reader left with? Initially, A great and Wise FRIEND ... a Guide to the Reality ... beyond the dream of "me in a world." ULTIMATELY? Nothing at all. That is what we are ... No Thing. Arising as Every Thing. You are all that is. There is no actual "separation" unless there is a thought of separation ... and when the thought is seen as ONLY a though, like clouds in a perfect empty sky ...the seeker evaporates and it's all over. Then Livingness itself is a celebration.

The word Advaita means "Not Two," which is a rigorous pointer to what Bob calls "One-Without-A-Second" or simply, THAT. All is That. That thou Art.

I spent a few days with Bob in September 2005, and he left 'me' with no Guru, no Teaching, nothing to remember, and nothing to do. (Who would do anything?) In other words, Bob leaves us without US or ME or OTHER ... just AS That, which was sought since the dream of a separate person arrived at around age three. And that is That.

This is one of the most awesome books I have ever read and has prompted me to look for everything else Sailor Bob has written. The title alone is enough to meditate on and find a firmer footing from which to face this ever changing world of which we are a part. If the real truth is what you seek, you will find it on the pages in this book. In my heart, I wish everyone could have a copy to read over and over again. The world would transform into a much saner place.

This is a book of transcribed talks by 'Sailor' Bob Adamson.

Bob has a gift for using words to point to that which is beyond all words and concepts. As he says - "the word is not the thing - you can't drink the word 'water', the word 'fire' cannot burn you"

This book is like speaking to Bob directly - nothing is lost in the translation. The clarity of Bob's confident understanding comes through brightly on each page.

If you are a "seeker", this book is priceless. If you can read only one - you won't find one clearer than this one. If you're ready to "finally" know what you are beyond all doubts, if you're ready to see through the mind, through all concepts, through your "life story" - get this book. You may not ever "need" to read another.

Bob is truly a gift.

I had run across the author a few years earlier on the internet but his words did not reach out and grab me at that time. I rediscovered Sailor Bob through his student, John Wheeler, and find them both to be bearers of the distillation of truth concerning man's essential nature. Whether their books would have saved me 25 years of searching or if they are just confirmations of all that necessary groundwork, I can't say. All I know is the journey is over and they were there when it happened.

This is a nice book with very clear guidance on the way to an awakened mind. The title of the book is a question which I like to ask myself whenever things seem to get "heavy", and the answer is always the same - nothings wrong with right now unless you think about it. The book is non-dualistic, but directs your awareness through the senses into the present where there is no mind, only clear awareness. A book called The One: (Finding Reality & The Awakening of Spiritual Awareness) has a similar approach and they compliment each other well.

If there is one book, you can get, and you are currently seeking, get this. This book will end the search, and if it doesn't, it's because you're not ready. There is nothing clearer or more simple out there.

A wonderful book that can effectively and immediately cut through illusion. Direct and simple. Highly recommended for those ready to be done with dominance by thinking. (Those seeking more concepts, constructs, and intellectual understanding - feed elsewhere or the game might just be up!)
