How much of your waking time are you fully awake? On the other hand, how often do you stumble through the day on autopilot, half-asleep and out of contact with yourself, instead of feeling connected and alive? In this astounding book, Steve Taylor suggests that our normal consciousness is really a kind of “sleep” from which we sometimes “wake up” into a more intense and complete reality. He provides what is perhaps the first-ever clear explanation of higher states of consciousness, or “awakening experiences.” This work delves into: • the methods we human beings have used throughout history to induce awakening experiences, including meditation, sex, sports, psychedelic drugs, and sleep deprivation• how higher states of consciousness were normal and natural to some of the world’s peoples (and still are, in some cases)• and how we can make “wakefulness” our normal state again.By fully explaining awakening experiences, the author makes them much more accessible, which may lead to a revolution in our psychological development as human beings!
“The most enlightening book about enlightenment I have ever read.” – Ervin Laszlo“One of the best books on spiritual awakening I have ever come across. An important contribution to the shift in consciousness that is happening on our planet at this time.” – Eckhart Tolle“Makes an elusive and complex subject easily comprehensible to the reader…His [Steve Taylor] enthusiasm is tangible and infectious.” - Kindred Spirit Magazine“Taylor has created an experience for the reader that is wonderful… The book has a lovely appeal and seems to almost generate the feeling of the awakened experiences that are described so beautifully.”- Journal of Transpersonal Psychology
