I was looking for conceptual ideas rather than a book that determines the "right way" and points out the "wrong ways." To find enlightenment. Kind of disappointed.
I highly recommend "the Buddha is still teaching" to anyone instead of this book.

There are thousands of years worth of wisdom condensed into a powerful, well structured and succinct message. It warrants listening several times and is a treasure and pleasure to own.

If I had taken advanced engineering schematics for a satellite , a heating system, a washing machine and Concorde then cut them up and then stuck them back together like a David Bowie lyric it would make a better read/listen than this! Physical death may well be when we 'awaken' and get the answers we are looking for, so on that note this book can help you as after 6 hours of listening to this you'll probably want to kill yourself! If the Buddha said 'I need to take a dump' this guy would interpret it as the Buddha is telling us he has transcended and moved beyond all physical bonds'. This author makes the subject unpalatable (oh! my ego is resisting) and fails to uplift and guide someone who is needing direction to a happier life. Also many contradictions! Eckhart Tolle on the other hand does communicate the subject of ego and presence masterfully in a way that is easily understood whilst also inspiring and uplifting the listener (I guess that's why he was voted #1 spiritual influencer in the world) sorry if I've offended anyone, it maybe that I'm not intellectual enough to grasp the concepts, but I found it like a negative, repetitive drone!

I am delighted to find this and it's companion. It has cleared up things that I needed answers to for many years. Like, for instance, what do we pray to? These books are dense, the more you listen, the more you find. I use when I wake up at night, requiring focus. I also understood the primacy of just sitting and following breath, and the necessity to practice it regularly. No more, no less, you don't need to put a leg on a snake. Finally, that present mind is the way to Buddha mind, in fact is identical. Thank you Anam for your wonderful clarify. David
