Francis Lucille: Eternity Now
Posted: 01/25/10 12:15 AM | by oncechris | temecula

francis lucilleThe Book that Changed My Life

Please forgive me: It is no secret that Francis Lucille is my teacher and friend. I am not impartial; it is my business to be familiar with teachers, and I know none better.

What can I say? I love the man.

How I came to know Francis was through a prepublication edition of his premier book, entitled, "Eternity Now".  it had been offered to me during an early period in my sojourn initiated due to a sudden and unexpected series of destabilizing, revelatory experiences. These direct experiences so collapsed my certainty about all things that they left me for the first time in my adult life, in complete surrender and not knowing.

I could not move forward even one inch without knowing for certain the Truth about who or what I was.

James Swartz: How to Attain Enlightenment
Posted: 01/17/10 05:40 PM | by oncechris | Tampa

James SwartzWhy Investigate Traditional Vedanta?


Many are confused and intimidated by Vedanta. There appear to be an overwhelming array of sacred texts, Godheads and unfamiliar Sanskrit terms and no one to simply lead Western seekers through this dense forest to clarity in terms and examples familiar to them.


During the Spring of 2009,  while visiting our home in California, James Swartz was inspired to compile a resource on Vedanta that would be the end all experience for Westerners seeking clarity on Vedanta. In an whirlwind fashion, James quickly completed the entire first draft of the work reducing this apparently complex teaching into a format both clear,accessible and entertaining to a western audience.


The book is done.

Greg Goode: The Enlightenment Secret
Posted: 01/12/10 07:40 AM | by oncechris | temecula

Greg GoodeYou are not a separate being. You are Being, and never separate. This is the Enlightenment, the happiness, in which all apparent things consist. It is the very Being of you.

It's a secret not because there's anyone hiding anything. It's been proclaimed by sages around the world for millennia. Rather, it's a secret because enlightenment is often misunderstood to be a matter of personal achievement, like scoring the ultimate goal. But there's no person there! There's not even a "there" or a spatial location where a person can reside. There is no individualized or separate "you" or "me"; no goal, no task and no achievement. There are no things, and no gaps separating things.
