Whatever form our relaxation takes we ask one of two things from it. If life has been hectic we want peace and quiet, if our routine is dull and uneventful we demand to be taken out of ourselves. What many people today want to know, and what I was determined to find out, is can there be a condition, a pool of quiet where the active, restless mind can completely switch off, opt out of the conflict, and still remain purposeful, wholesome, communicative and creative-says the author.
In this report he has recorded his search for this condition. He has recalled the circumstances which set him off on he search, traced its progress and described its results.
A fascinating glimpse of the path of a spiritual seeker who had both the yearning and the discipline to paractice with some of the greatest spiritual mentors of our time. This classic spiritual odyssey offers a wealth of insight, inspiration, and practical advice to all readers with a thirst for adventures of the spirit.
