2015 Silver Medalist from Living Now Book Awards Enlightenment has long been regarded as a state reserved for a few rare individuals, a state that can only be gained by living a recluse life in a cave or in a monastery somewhere. It has been thought that enlightenment is very difficult to achieve, requiring one to give up all worldly possessions and to lead an austere life.

Journey to Enlightenment
Author: Matthieu Ricard
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
An inspiring portrait of one of the great spiritual leaders of the twentieth century, this book follows Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in his travels to Tibet, Bhutan, India, and Nepal, revisiting important places from his past. His birthplace in eastern Tibet, the monastery of Shechen that he entered at age eleven, the retreat grounds where he spent years in meditation and study—these are some of the stops along the way. Told in intimate detail by his personal assistant, Matthieu Ricard, this condensed biographical narrative integrates extensive passages from the writings and teachings of the master himself to impart a rare view of his journey to enlightenment. Note: This edition, excerpted from the first volume of The Collected Works of Dilgo Khyentse, is an abridged adaptation of the heavily photographed, full-color Aperture edition from 1996. It contains 36 black-and-white photographs.
While the philosophical discussion of Zen spirituality reaches its limit, poetry offers an effective expression of the sublime experiences. From a poetic perspective, enlightenment is understood as poetic leaps in the spiritual journey, which brings people from the habitually or conventionally established world toward new horizons of consciousness. This leap is a breakthrough in the overall consciousness, rather than a progression in contemplative thought. Therefore, it cannot be adequately described through abstract representation, but poetry can metaphorically capture this leap and reveal both the spiritual meaning and the practical wisdom of enlightenment. This book will take you on this fantastic journey of enlightenment.
Journey To Enlightenment is a book for the truly sincere individual in search of spiritual progression. It comes from a true source remembered from counselors on a higher level who are interested in teaching mankind to not get so attached with the illusions on this plane. That we are only living in a shadow of a shadow of reality. That we can come to truths not by listening to others, but by going within our own God Self for the answers and getting in tune with our intuition. The journey into enlightenment is magical, but not gained by magic. It takes hard work and a deep commitment towards that aim. It takes the understanding that the hardest thing to overcome is also within. The ego is the part of us that wants control and we freely give it full reign. It is not until we can control our thoughts, learn to live in the silence and accept what is our life that we will come to our true selves.
A JOURNEY TO ENLIGHTENMENT is a journey to the light within each of us. Most people instinctively know there is a greater power at the core of creation. We have named that power God and have created many religions to celebrate God. Religions at their basis teach love and the Golden Rule but unfortunately because mankind has interjected their opinions into the mix there has been great separation between religions and people on this planet. Most of the wars have been fought because of the differences in interpretation that religions have. Each religion believes they are the one true path to God. But with all of the many religions which one is the one true way? We have learned to give our power to people outside of ourselves thus making ourselves powerless. It is time we turned within to the power inside of each of us, our heart, Soul, and God within. For it is there and only there that our true power lies. God is not outside of us as many religions have inferred. When we wake up and remember our authentic self as an aspect of the Creator is when the Journey to Enlightenment happens. We are much more then these bodies we inhabit. We are an Eternal Spirit focused in these human forms having a human experience, with powers and abilities far beyond our imagining. One of these powers is the ability to co-create with all of creation. Have you heard the expression, “Thoughts become things”? What we think goes forth from us and it takes form in this world we live in. At this time we are moving from the third dimensional frequency to the fifth, which is assisting us to remembering our Divine self. Allow me to assist you on your Journey To Enlightenment.
