"REGARDLESS OF INTELLECTUAL CAPACITY OR EDUCATION, ANYONE WITH AN OPEN MIND WILL FIND THIS BOOK NOT ONLY INTERESTING, BUT USEFUL. If something does not make sense, just keep reading and all will be made clear eventually."
"STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. It is well written and alarmingly simple."
-Bernard W. Glynn
From the Back Cover
If you focus on the meaning of the words in this book instead of what they are pointing to, I can almost guarantee that this will just be another book about enlightenment that you can file away in the deep recesses of your mind. The words throughout are meant to go beyond belief, religion and philosophy, in order to stimulate a recognition and remembrance of what is already known. Words are dualistic by nature and can only describe something in terms of its opposite - and ultimately fail in attempting to describe the non-dual nature of reality. It comes with using words to describe the indescribable, but words can't capture this.
It is for this reason that you will undoubtedly encounter seeming contradictions and paradoxes throughout, particularly when pointing to THIS THAT YOU REALLY ARE. And in those contradictions and paradoxes, liberation awaits. You won't understand this with the mind, but what YOU are understands this perfectly. Drop all expectation and everything you think you know. For the time being, let go of everything you've accumulated up to this point, including all your spiritual notions and beliefs from any particular dogma or tradition. Suspend all ideas of right and wrong for the sake of another possibility that can transform everything.

I'm not saying you'll read it quickly and then "POOF!", all your problems will disappear. But it is possible while reading this book to experience such a paradigm shift in perspective that no outside circumstance will ever affect you in the same adverse way it once did. That's no small thing.
While it's an easy book to read, I found that I had to drink it in slowly. I had to stop in every chapter and let what I was reading sink in. Let me put it this way .... this is what reading the book was like for me .... imagine living underneath an oriental rug where all you see are the threads coming through the reverse side, which is confusing and doesn't seem to make much sense -- and then imagine suddenly being transported to the other side of the rug, looking down on it from above where you can finally see the incredibly wonderful pattern that was there all along. That's what reading this book was like for me.
You will probably recognize yourself over and over again in these pages. If nothing else, it's a great glimpse into how your mind works and there's a chance you'll never see yourself and what we call the world in the same way again. It destroys any sense of self you think you might have, and that can be hard to take. But on the other side of that is a place that fear and anxiety can't touch, and that makes it well worth the trip. Big thumbs up on this one.
If you've been travelling the spiritual path like me, going from concept to concept to concept, you will find great simplicity and great hope here. Definitely worth the price!
Now see that sounds silly because the words stifle me. Not so with David...no one persons review could possibly describe the sensation of home David's words evoke. I've been searching for home in many different forms my whole life. David makes it accessible once you experience the simplicity of life the words evoke.
There are any number of reasons you might pick up this book or his other books that are equally brilliant...and none of those reasons would prepare you for the truth written here. Even better no preparation is required only a desire to know the TRUTH about reality. Read slowly as each sentence is a feast. Read deeply as his words will reach beyond any prior knowledge to a place in which the mind has no access.
Read with a sense love as the love you receive can change all perception. Read with gratitude as you began to surrender to the magic that is nothing more than right here... right now... present and perfect. Pay attention to each pointer lightly and gently without an attempt to grasp. Let the words sink below the level of your mind into your heart and gut. The gift received goes far beyond what words can convey. They open the door to a vast expansive sense of belonging that the inner most essence of you will immediately RECOGNIZE as the home for which you thought you were looking but actually never left.
