Just as a finger pointing to the moon is not the moon, words and thought are not the truth they point to. Just as a road sign or a freeway sign is not the destination, concepts, opinions and beliefs are not enlightenment or truth. This eBook points towards truth, it is not truth. Nothing in the world of form (including but not limited to: thought forms, words, beliefs, opinions, concepts and scriptures are truth. They are only pointers of truth. They are "forms" pointing to the one eternal, timeless and formless truth. This eBook is a tool for enlightenment, its purpose is to assist you in awakening. If you do not understand what "awakening" means, read on...
Nothing in the world of form can fulfill you. This eBook is a a collection of sign posts (signs) that point towards truth, which is formless. Ultimately, truth is beyond the mind, it cannot be grasped, it cannot be understood intellectually. The purpose of this eBook is to help you awaken... to help you notice stillness. Enlightenment is already within you, it may be temporarily obscured by mind identification. Enlightenment is like the sky, and most peoples mind is like a blanket of clouds covering the sky. To awaken, you must allow the clouds to be blown away. Awakening cannot be forced, it is allowed through surrender to the now, it is allowed by surrendering to the "isness" of now, to surrendering to the form that this moment takes, to completely accepting what is... what ALREADY is. Awakening is: allowing life to be as it is, allowing the form(s) that life is choosing to take be. Awakening is... inner peace and acceptance of this moment, in whatever form it takes. To be the "BEer" not just the "DOer". Awakening is... No internal resistance to "now", to the life conditions of this moment. Therefore, awakening is and can only happen "NOW". What the Japanese call "satori" is a flash of enlightenment or a taste, it is temporarily awakening.
About the author
Nathan (Nate) Anderton is a lyricist/songwriter and an author of transformational books on spiritual awakening. Nathan is going through an awakening where he is becoming more and more aware of the thoughts that pass through his consciousness. Nathans eBooks are "pointers" towards thought awareness, ego awareness, inner peace, oneness and what many people cal "awakening". Many people learn through suffering and many people learn through coming in contact with words or teachings that point to a formless truth that the mind cannot grasp, and that no thought, words, concept or belief can capture. Through reading Nathans eBooks you can allow the awakening process to quicken within you. In other words, you can learn proactively instead of through more suffering.
