The Open Path: Recognizing Nondual AwarenessBy Elias Amidon
Interest in nondual awareness as the essence of spiritual awakening, free from the obligations and cultural references of a particular religion, is rapidly expanding throughout the Western world. Those who have sought out and followed spiritual paths, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufism, Kabbalism, etc., have often found themselves coming up against a kind of ceiling in their longing for spiritual awakening. This can be a result of the religion’s cultural context or a belief system that may not see awakening as something within the reach of adherents. The Open Path is an excellent guide to the realization of the silent ground of all being and to the expression of that realization in the diverse conditions of their lives.
“Among many mysteries explored here: spontaneous prayer, kindness, emptiness, starting from where you are, the freedom of the universe, awakening, is one that Elias Amidon barely mentions — friendship. Moving through this book feels to me like a continuously opening friendship.”
~ Coleman Barks author of The Essential Rumi
