    I have read many spiritual books in my six decades but this is the first that put me in my place giving me a glimpse of how big and how real this endeavour isAnd yet the author writes in an appealing easy to understand way He shows how this attainment is for the simplest soul to grasp but the cost is absolute This path is not for those of us who are just toying with wonderful ideas It is only entered by living with discipline and total commitment the life that lies in reality beneath the veil we inhabit ideas concepts and language While we are still attached to these it remains out of reachAs I said a beautifully written profoundstory full of hope But one that puts me at least firmly in my place he conveys the vastness of it all so well
