Awakening : The Manifesto of a Spiritual Philosopher: The Journey Toward a Compassionate Non-Dual World
Authentic spiritual growth is possible without religion. Author Dick Rauscher offers a rational, non-religious path to authentic spiritual growth and enlightenment for both those who are "spiritual but not religious," and those who walk a more "traditional religious" path. Authentic spiritual growth and growth in consciousness happens when we know our mind and how it works. We use our minds to create our lives and our world. The more we know about our mind and how we think, the greater the choice we have in how we use it! We cannot change what we do not understand about ourselves. Authentic spiritual growth comes from deep self-awareness of the logs in our own eyes, not religious beliefs. If you hunger to embrace a rational, non-religious, authentic 21st century spirituality, this manifesto was written for you. The path to spiritual enlightenment and "becoming compassion" is through ego emptiness, not religious beliefs. "Authentic spiritual growth is learning to "see" the unity of the world through non-dual eyes, and changing the way we think. Only when we have the courage and willingness to journey within, and expand our self-knowledge through intentional growth in self-awareness, will we achieve those two goals."
