Happy New Year to you dear pilgrim friend! May all your days in 2018 be full of laughter, insight, surrender, and love.
I am completing the first draft of my first book about my journey on the pathless path. This book remains untitled and will detail the core principles and philosophy of Advaita, nonduality, and the wisdom teachings of Jesus the Christ, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, and the Christian Mystics. Of course I’ll share how I perceived “peeling the onion” of this mysterious and illusory personal self. Read more here.
I’m addicted to reading as much as I am to writing and this may be one of the reasons why our house is often dusty and there are used dishes and utensils in the kitchen sink. Sigh.
Below is a listing of the books open beside my reading chair and I don’t have enough vowels to list all the books stacked in the queue on the floor, by the bed, on the desk, and on the nightstand. Just imagine how in the advanced stages of addiction I might want all my favorite books in close range in case I need to make a hasty exit to a place that has no books. Perish the thought.
