The Direct Path (eBook)
The Direct Path offers readers the “missing manual” to understanding non-duality. Inside, author Greg Goode provides forty user-friendly experiments and investigations designed to help readers come to their own conclusions about the nature of the body, mind, and perception. Readers will be taken, step by step, from the simple discernment of a physical object through the collapse of the witness into pure consciousness, leaving no doubt they are one with all things, and leading to a sense of lightness, freedom, and joy.
Have you ever done non-dual inquiry and said to yourself, “I understand it intellectually, but I don’t feel it. It’s not my experience!” If so, The Direct Path, inspired by Sri Atmananda (Krishna Menon), could be for you. This book is the “missing manual” to the Direct Path. For the first time in print, Direct-Path inquiry is presented from beginning to end and beyond, in a user-friendly way. The core of the book is a set of forty experiments designed to help dissolve the most common non-dual sticking points, from simple to subtle. The experiments cover the world, the body, the mind, abstract objects, and witnessing awareness. You are taken step-by-step from the simple perception of a physical object all the way to the collapse of the witness into pure consciousness. Your takeaway is that there’s no experiential doubt that you and all things are awareness, openness, and love. Also included are three tables of contents, illustrations, an index, a section on teaching, and the notion of a “post-nondual realization.” This book can be utilized on its own or as a companion volume to the author’s Standing as Awareness.
