All three books are written in a narrative format.

This first book takes place in an Iowa farmhouse where Jed is an Enlightened teacher and he is working with a number of students. All the students are representative of the various places we can all get stuck, you see many of them represented here. The guru worshiper, the young “New Age” seeker or a person in the middle of their mid-life crises coming to terms with the infinite reality of their own existence. Jed interweaves this with an overall story (much of it involves him writing this book.) At the same time he mixes in a variety of approaches & strategies and in particular he spends a lot of time talking about what does NOT work. The places you can get stuck.

What you will find here is a blueprint for the war on EGO. This book has a lot more to do with what is false then what is true. Jed leaves those conclusions up to you. I have had a lot of friends who have been turned off by this book, with Jed talking about “I’m the enlightened guy” I’ve had other friends that have had a problem with the fact that Jed (or whoever Jed is) decided to remain anonymous.

But that’s not the point of this book, it really has nothing to do with it. This book is about one thing, it is about the READER. Its’ about ego death as a means to no self.

In my opinion this is one of the most important books ever written about the spiritual awakening process. Now the process described by Jed is in no way pleasant. It defiantly won’t involve any hand holding, vegetarian eating, white robe wearing, or sitting around meditating all day. Your not going to see a lot of that in this book, you are going to see a lot of hard work.

Jed’s form of journaling he calls spiritual autolysis. But at the core of this book you will find one simple message, think for yourself. Find out the one thing that is front of you, that is blocking your path to advance, destroy that and move on. Don’t get stuck in concepts and comfortable places.

I really enjoyed this book…we here at enlightenmentdudes.com decided to give the book 8 infinity symbols out of 10 making – HIGHLY recommended for your process.
