I put off buying this because, really, I've read a ton of non-dual books and, even though I am aware that non-duality is my path, reading about it is getting to be same-ole-same-ole. As I began reading this one, I thought I had probably wasted my money: "Yeah, I know that. Yeah, yeah. More of the same." But after a few pages, I realized that something that I couldn't define was shifting inside of me. Aha! Jeff was getting past my brain and speaking to my heart. This book IS different. Or perhaps it's effect has more to do with where I'm at than the words. Most likely, it is a combination of both. Anyway... I'm going to reread my other Foster books, for sure.

I have adored reading this book, over and over. It is like sinking deeply into your own joyful and bleeding heart. Its purity. Kindness. Eloquence. Comforting and real. It came at a perfect time in my life and has truly nourished me. It has challenged thoughts, torn at my vulnerability and comforted my aching. It should be recommended to anyone who is willing to be open to see what truly lies within. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and can recommend it to others who have a desire to recognize what is already here. And its just beautiful poetry.

A page a day keeps you awake to your real life in wonder. Examples of snippets:
“Let life kick you off your pedestal time and time again, until you lose all interest in being on pedestals.”
“Learn to love the mess of your life . . its unpredictability. . . . stand in the wide open space in which joy and pain, ecstasy and agony, boredom and bliss, can arise and subside like waves in the ocean.”
“Stress is the tension between ‘what is’ in this moment, and your image of how this moment should be.”
“Speak your deepest truth, even if it means losing everything . . . A life of lies and half-truths, the burden of unspoken things, will eventually suffocate you and everyone around you.”
This book was deeply nurturing to me.

One of the best. I have this on my Kindle and now I'm buying the book. I seldom do this, only for those select few "bibles" that promise to become friends for life. A beautiful, beautiful volume of spiritual poetry and prose.

I love this book. Many nondual books are rather intellectual and abstract, which is helpful as far as that goes. But Jeff clearly understands that the spiritual seeker is usually not just on a lark. He or she is hurting badly! And often when we "wake up," the pain doesn't just poof away. In fact, it can even be intensified.

This was certainly the case with me. So I really needed guidance in applying my spiritual awareness to the challenge of getting through every day. This book beautifully provides that, reminding me not to run away from whatever arises, to embrace this moment, to love this moment. The message is heartfelt and compassionate. It just feels so good to know you are understood and not alone on your journey, no matter how challenging.

It was a Christmas gift to my 22 year old son. After following Jeff Foster on Facebook for a while, I felt his style would be welcomed by my kiddo. Jeff is speaking to all age groups and has a unique poetic yet no nonsense writing style. I hope to borrow the book back and read it myself soon.

Savoring every moment spent with this book ... like spending time with a dear, wise friend who gives you all the space and compassion you need to just be where you are. Reading it slowly, deliberately ... like taking a cool sip of water on a hot day. Letting the words fall softly ... letting the truth wash over me like a gentle rain, or when needed, like a hurricane. I can envision reading this book again and again. I keep it on my night table and read from it before I go to bed. Then I let it go and fall asleep, knowing that my dreams will lead me beyond the words, to the place where I am ... now ... always. Thank you, Jeff Foster. Your book appeared at the very moment I needed it most. I am so grateful.
