When humanity is at a crossroads, do you yearn for the whole human in you? Perhaps you have already explored many paths, old or new. Or none of them. You are invited here to the most discreet of ways - one hardly known at all in the western world. A simple way of non-practices, the way of our true nature. It is already inside you, breathing the spirit that breathes you. It has been waiting for you to heed your own call. Its attitude of non-doing subtly cuts through spiritualistic and mechanistic complications of a culture that destroys both humans and their Earth. The natural human mystic who is already in you was stolen from you lifetime after lifetime. But it still beckons into the subtle vastness of you, in this very lifetime. It beckons urgently, just in case the theft were to become final.
This is not a book about mysticism, nor about meditation. It introduces a radically different way to cultivate a contemplative attitude, a way for all humans but known to only a handful of western people. A way of simplicity for a culture addicted to complication. A way of the whole human for a culture infatuated with the mind at the expense of all the rest. Its core attitude of non-doing leaves the body, the breath, the Earth in charge of effecting subtle yet profound transformation at all levels - physical, emotional, cognitive, spiritual… without spending years on the meditator's cushion. In non-practices of body, breath, Earth, the natural mystic in us awakens. Why the body, the breath, the Earth? Because these parts of who we are - neglected, tortured, oppressed under the empire of the mind - are the most obvious and accessible forces that faithfully enable us to live our lives even as we ignore them. With exquisite unrecognized wisdom, they repair us if we allow them to do so. When we are attentive to them, they teach us what no treatise can teach, and arguably, hold the key to reintegration of the whole human. They dissolve false polarized dualities of physicality and spirituality, matter and spirit, body and soul, human and Nature. They are the natural forces with the power to cut through an unnatural culture that worships the unnatural, the virtual, the artificial, the simulated - that traps us in the violence of deceit. This book picks up the thread of my previous work, Krivda, the Godtrix Against the Matrix, into the re-membrance of who we are.

Highlighting the clarifying call from within It seems most of us experience a lot of noise in our worlds. Noise comes in many forms; sometimes it's people telling us what they think is true. Sometimes it's our past, seemingly trying to delay its extinction by demanding our attention. Or maybe it takes the form of a chaotic and disorienting inner world. How is one to orient in all this mess? What can be trusted? How do we sort through it all? Surely, this experience can't represent our highest capacity as a human? For me, Broody Blue has been like the relief of seeing the very first sign of sunrise after spending a night trying to navigate the woods in an unfamiliar land with sounds of unknown creatures all about. The sigh one lets out when it no longer requires our sharpest whits to survive... the light will do all the heavy lifting now. Read more
A call to action This is not a review as much as it is a call to action. But that in itself is the paradox because this book is about showing us the way forward is actually by ‘no action’. It’s in the ‘un-doing’ of all the things we have been programmed to do. It’s about stepping aside and allowing our true selves to come through. But of course it’s more than that. It’s a book of hope for humanity, how to navigate a true natural path forward in this tech riddled AI world. For me, this book is a much anticipated follow on from her first book Krivda, with practical ways to elicit innate knowing and continue my intended natural spiritual growth uncontrolled by ‘current systems’. Enna is a extraordinary litterateur and I devour her intellect, wisdom and boldness in bringing forth this lost (and hidden) knowledge to our current reality. I truly feel I’ve been gifted secret information. It’s been a game changer for me and one I encourage real truth seekers to explore. Read more
