Reviewed in Canada on March 18, 2019
For all genuine seekers interested in applying esoteric truths to daily life, Cyrus Ryan's first book is a "must read". Living on the Inner Edge - A Practical Esoteric Tale is the captivating account of his spiritual journey beginning with a first awakening and leading to a thirty-year group experience with a bona fide spiritual teacher from Indonesia simply known as RN.

The author is frank and honest in his narration of the group challenges and the behavior of certain individuals, including himself, and how they affect the group dynamics as well as the teacher. Readers will not fail to be fascinated by some of the author's surprising adventures, particularly those related to meditation, in India and Tibet. The narration interweaves adeptly between personal experiences, and a very clear exposition of the esoteric teachings as presented by their mentor. These include Theosophy, Vedanta and Atma Vidya traditions, the Alice A. Bailey/Djwhal Khul material, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, and the comparatively new Fourth Way teachings of Gurjieff and Ouspensky.

A particularly helpful part of the book are those chapters which present topics rarely tackled in other spiritual literature, such as the question of love, sex and spirituality, how to ward off astral attacks and elemental forces, and the facing of unredeemed demons from the past which eventually constitutes what is called in esoteric literature as "the dweller on the threshold." The book is replete with many diagrams of obscure esoteric philosophy such as the inner components of the human being.

The book culminates with a sharing of an inspiring lecture given by RN in November, 1981 entitled The Science of Transformation in the Great Work. In all, I have no reservation in highly recommending this unique account, an experiment in group discipleship inspired by one of the Teachers of Wisdom from one of the Inner Ashrams of the Spiritual Hierarchy. This work presents just part of the saga and we are given to understand a sequel is in the offing. Personally I can hardly wait for the manifestation of the second part!
