The human mind is a powerful thing. But the mind can also act as a filter that keeps us from experiencing the present moment in all its richness. In Oneness, author John Greven invites readers to give up the search for “enlightenment” and takes a concise, non-dualistic look at the world as it really is, right now, without the mind’s own reflections obscuring its multifaceted mystery.
What have you been missing? In Oneness, author John Greven invites readers to see the world as it really is, right now, without the mind’s own reflections obscuring its multifaceted mystery.Oneness takes the reader, step by step, to the inescapable reality that is the self. The intent of this book is to look afresh at one’s daily experience, to point to something that the mind may have overlooked. It is not pointing to anything new, anything that you can achieve, or anything you can add to yourself. It is not pointing to the good deeds you have done in your life to emphasize what a wonderful person you must be. It is pointing to something so simple, something so obvious, that when it is pointed out and seen, you wonder how it was ever missed.How could the mind have taken something so obvious for granted? How did the mind so easily toss out the valuable jewel in favor of its reflections? You may have been searching for self realization, enlightenment, the Buddha Mind, God, or some other goal implying the same thing. You may have been searching for many years, or you may just be getting started on a search; Whether you’ve been traveling a path for a while or you’re just taking the first step makes no difference. This book invites you to take a look at the space that has been overlooked, to see what is obvious, and to bring that search to an end—right now.
