Shimmering World : Living Meditation
Steven Harrison's books have inspired many to examine their ideas about life and about spirituality in particular, and to come to a more direct perception of their experience. The Shimmering World is a good introduction to his sometimes challenging approach to living. It includes previously unpublished excerpts from his talks as well as inspiring, thought-provoking quotes from his books. An elegant, potentially life-changing gift for those who hunger for what is real in a world overrun by concepts.

In my review of Steven Harrison s Doing Nothing, I remarked that he had been led to the conclusion that the search itself is a means of evasion. Seeking prevents finding, the ego blocks selfrealisation, the questioner may obscure the answer, the self must realise its ground in emptiness. This new book is of a different kind, in that it combines his short aphorisms with beautiful matching paintings by Richard Stodart. It is one to keep by the bedside and dip into. Here is a remark on humility: humility is the absence of a particular position in relation to the world around us, the silencing of the critic within, the surrender to the movement of life without interpretation. And again: the meditation of where we are is not even spiritual. It is life itself, moving of its own accord, fluid, quiet, beautiful, and self fulfilled. --The Network Review"
