But don't worry, the book is not so stark. You are given a guided tour of the buffet table's four kinds of offerings, starting at the beginning.
The first part of the book is about spiritual seeking. If you are a seeker, you will at once identify with the author and be led on a journey through the rest of the book. Randall speaks to the seeker's feeling of imprisonment:
"We're looking to get out of this trap which we've created, this entanglement of uncertainty which we wade through, this murky idea about what-we-are."
Part two is about finding your way out of this trap, this suffering, through self-knowledge based upon Advaita Vedanta and nonduality in general:
"Advaita Vedanta says that the world is an illusion. ... That to which we look for knowledge ... is an illusion. The very place we seek within, looking to find reality and truth, is an illusion."
Part three points to true nature: "We see that the dream character which was clinging to the edge has no separate existence, has no reality and never, ever, for one moment, existed. We fall back into our true Self, That which we never left, That which we truly are. We fall but there is nowhere to land, nowhere to go. There is nowhere ouside of our Self to end up."
The fourth part consists of dialogues which further clarify the book's teachings.Read more ›
This book is a work of joy, humor and warmth. In plain, simple language, completely devoid of mystical jargon, this text directly points to our true nature: pure seeing, the activity of knowing; unshakable peace and boundless freedom. You Are No Thing.
Very highly recommended.
I love the format of the book - each chapter is two-three pages long which begins with a concept such as time or experiencing, and leads swiftly to a 'checkmate' of the ego. The chapters are also organised in a way to reflect your growing understanding, and the questions that arise as your insight grows.
Strongly recommend this book for anyone looking for a simple, clear 'path' to now-here. A little gem that deserves to become a classic.
His uncopromising dedication to the Truth shines through clearly. Words have limitations when it comes to expressing non-duality, but Randall's expressions go beyond any limitation of language and speak right to the heart of the reader.

Excellent if you are drawn to this seeming mystery of self. Neti, neti!
A guide, a gentle push, perhaps even a trip to facilitate settling into all that exits right now.
