Love’s Quiet Revolution: The End of the Spiritual Search by Scott Kiloby – Video & Text Review

Scott Kiloby is one of the most technology savvy spiritual writers in the world today, so I wasn’t totally surprised when received some recommendations that we review his book “Love’s Quiet Revolution: The End of the Spiritual Search.”

Although, I saw Scott around the internet a bit, I was not very familiar with his work.  Quite a few people don’t have the capacity to have both technical skill and the ability to write, so I wasn’t sure what to expect with his book.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that “Love’s Quiet Revolution” is clear and masterfully written. It was weaved together from a series of writings that occurred over a six month period following the author’s awakening in July of 2007. This makes the presentation unique and fresh, and it flows like a clear spring of wisdom.

Although there is a certain gentleness that one would expect from a book with “Love” in the title, there is also a very real, honest approach here that a seeking ego isn’t going to like.  And that’s a good thing.  Speaking from his experience with addictions, Scott accurately describes seeking as another drug and a deception.  From the book, “During the spiritual search, the ego believes it is peeling back layers of an onion to find the true version of itself.  In mature spirituality, it is realized that there never was an onion.  The onion is the dream.”

As I’ve probably made clear in other reviews, I prefer the experiential to belief.  This book also states many times not to believe what is written, but to examine for yourself.  There are places within the book where the author asks you to “notice” this or that – which to me is a much more relevant term than “witness” or something similar.  Don’t we routinely notice things in our daily lives?

I was interested in where the title of the book came from, so I asked Scott Kiloby.  He said “It just came to me.  The Revolution is the change in conscious (out of separation).  It’s quiet because it leaves you in exactly the place where you cannot take personal credit for it, so one doesn’t jump up and down and say, ‘I’m enlightened.’  The love part is obvious, I think, in that love is what we are when we stop believing thoughts of separation.  We are always love actually. But it’s like we don’t know it or over look it and instead choose stories.”

“Love’s Quiet Revolution” is full of real truth to the point where I would pause after a sentence or a paragraph and just feel the aliveness.  He states very clearly what enlightenment is in the following quote: “Enlightenment is not an affirmative belief.  It is a project of removal – the negation of all that is not absolutely true.  How does one negate what is false?  He does not. Only thought would seek to do something like that.  The false falls away naturally when awareness notices the dream self in each moment in each of its manifestations.”

The title is appropriate because I really loved this book, and gives it a 9 out of 10 on our Infinity Scale.  We look forward to reading more of Scott’s work.
