About the Author
My name is Wayne Wirs, which rhymes with "ears" (because I knew you were wondering). I live in a van and travel full-time around the U.S.A., writing and blogging and taking photographs. If they had sadhus in American (the wandering holy men of India), then I'd be one. But they don't. So I just wander. In 2009, high up on Mt. Hood in Oregon, I challenged a frog to a meditation contest. After two hours, I lost the contest but I awoke to enlightenment. Thirty years of meditating and all it took was a cold-blooded amphibian to wake me up. Still (and this is a secret, but enlightenment doesn't play very well with the "real" world), I decided not to publish anything definitive on the subject until I had it all worked out. I have a saying, "The smart have their theories, but the wise have their scars." Seven years and many scars later, I've finally published my opus—everything I know about spiritual awakening and how you too can wake up. It's called "Mystical Oneness and the Nine Aspects of Being." It's a step-by-step guide to enlightenment, and the mysterious realms beyond. Because I'm a firm believer in transparency, I keep an online diary of my thoughts and travels and photography. If you are interested, it can be found at… my name dot com. Hope to see you there.

Wayne’s own detailed description of his book along with the comments by other reviewers provide a good indication of the value Mystical Oneness offers, so I’ll try not to be repetitive. What I will say is that if you are leary of purchasing a self-published book, in the case of Wayne’s book, don’t be. If you hesitate to purchase a book by someone who has been blogging for years and think you can just read Wayne’s blogs for free, then you will enjoy his blogs, certainly, but you would be missing out on the wisdom contained in Mystical Oneness. There is no fluff, no filler in these pages, and this book by no means just tosses old postings together. All of the nearly 400 pages are very well written, clearly organized, interesting, and filled with information intended to assist and enlighten. Some blogs posts are included, but only as examples to help explain ideas, and together they form only a small part of the total. This is a book to be read, re-read, and kept. I am personally grateful to have concepts and experiences explained in ways I haven’t encountered before, such as our relationship to what Wayne calls the nine aspects of Being. With Wayne’s insights, ideas I’ve encountered over the years now make much more sense.
Did I agree with or like everything? No, that would be unrealistic. The few places I found myself questioning were when Wayne became definitive about processes/practices to follow or about ideas, such as the stages that happen after death, for example. But these few places do not detract from the whole, and may, of course, simply reflect my own “stuff.” Just as A Mystic's Journal ends with new realizations, so too does Mystical Oneness. The journey, thankfully, continues.
Aside from the clear and well-written aspects of the book, it's exceedingly well-organized; you can tell a lot of thought went into just the structure and the presentation of the Tiers and Aspects. With the large volume of information associated with all this, this was essential, and Wayne has organized it well.
The other thing that struck me, being one who has read more than a few books that fall into this genre, is how a lot of presumptions and common impressions concerning enlightenment are addressed. Wayne is careful to point out that we are still in a mortal body, still will have varying degrees of separation and union (and how these are even necessary), and still will have overall thoughts and normal human experiences and desires. It seems to me that mention of these things is likely essential for directing and encouraging anyone who is seeking to follow the path toward eventual 'oneness'...it could alleviate a lot of otherwise inevitable discouragement and confusion.
Additional thoughts are pretty much already addressed by earlier reviews, so I won't belabor any of those points. The only other thing I will say is this - if you've ever been looking for an experience along these lines, something that connects you to a more sublime state of being, or are merely curious about the subject - read this book! I don't think you'll regret it.
