From the Author
The book was written shortly after his shift in consciousness. It cuts through many ideas that we often hold about ourselves, others, and the world. These ideas keep us locked in separation and conflict. By emphasizing these ideas, we carry with us a sense of lack, as if something is missing in our lives. This sense of lack leads us to seek wholeness or completion in drugs, alcohol, self-improvement, relationships, love, sex, shopping, work, and many other human endeavors. Scott says, "We are merely looking for ourselves. Enlightenment is simply the recognition that presence is what we really are. This recognition allows all seeking to end, leaving a deep sense of permanent well-being and freedom, totally unimaginable to those who have never experienced it." The central message in Scott's first book is that our real identity is love itself, beyond all the ideas we emphasize about ourselves, others, and the world. In seeing beyond those ideas, love reveals itself as our natural state.

Out of the many thousands of books I've read in my life, there are only a small handful that have taken my ability to operate more effectively in this world to a higher level. Even though, as Scott Kiloby teaches us, there is no separation in the vast aggregation of all ideas out there, the reality is that there are some who will read this book and others who will never hear of it. In my opinion, it's important for as many people on the planet fall into the former category.
Why? I think most people who have read Eckhart Tolle's books or heard him speak or who have delved into the teachings of many other authors who've taught on a similar topic, have had a very strong sense that there's something potent and life changing about dwelling in the state of present moment awareness. And if you, like many people, actually experience it, you understand just how liberating it is. You can be free of undesired emotions. When you are unencumbered by mental noise, you are free to take the right action in every area of your life. All the roadblocks are removed.
Yet, for most people, including myself these periods of pure awareness have tended to be short-lived all too sporadic. It's so very easy to get caught up in your story, your life situation, the not so ideal interactions with people, the challenges of business, the leaking faucet, and the traffic on the I-5 through downtown.
Now finally, someone has succeeded in creating an authoritative and yet easily understood methodology for making the "Now" the dominant state. In just reading a few pages of Scott Kiloby's book, I've developed a stronger and more enduring ability to comfortably stay in a state of present moment awareness than the week-long retreats I've been to.
No matter what you current belief system is, read Scott's book and I think you will come away with those beliefs perhaps still intact, but also living above those beliefs. I'm there, and like this place. And I'm comfortable with not having to go back to the old self.
Each one speaks the same truth, through that individual's personality. Not everyone who has the awakening experience can clearly talk about it, or write the words that try to communicate the impossible. Concepts that the mind will never understand, leaving the reader with a sense of mystery.
Scott is obviously gifted. He is able to by pass the mind and makes us aware of the dream called the spiritual search. I recall how I came to appreciate this book. In the beginning, I admit to having felt overwhelmed by it's intensity. My first reading left my mind exhausted! Honestly, I got through half of it and put it aside.
After a 2nd and 3rd attempt, I just opened it up to the middle and suddenly realized I had never read the book and understood it. Not a word Scott uses is wasted and just like when you're driving your car, if you don't pay attention, you will lose your way. In this case, I almost lost my mind. My analytical mind wanted to look elsewhere!
I then started reading it in a way that was beyond my thoughts. I sensed I was using the words to identify and confirm my own identity and belief system. Realizing this was the wonder of this book.
I stopped arguing and resisting what was being said and suddenly, something extra-ordinary happened! My intellect was disarmed and I felt a sense of love and peace. I slowed down my reading and walked away..letting it enter my entire being.
This book finally allowed me to see that my mind was holding me back from making sense of life. As Scott says, at it's most basic level, this book is an inquiry. It may not answer all your questions, but the endless search will come to an end!
Scott explains very well what Nisargadatta was trying to point to in "I am that" and gives clear pointers on how to find "That" which can't be found in the mind. It's great that we have teachers such as Scott, the late master Lester Levenson, Jeff Foster and others who can give clear pointers to the truth.
Why are people on a spiritual search?... To stop searching! And where would they be once they've finished searching? Where they've always been!! This book points you to where you've always been. Right here, right now.
I want to say "Scott is brilliant at expressing the love in this moment", but words aren't enough... but what if, for just this moment, words COULD be enough? ... I would let that quote be my sole summary of this book :)
