Banyen's Description: 

Calm Center is one of the first titles in the Eckhart Tolle Editions series—Tolle chose this book because he found Taylor a kindred spirit in facilitating spiritual awakening and shifts in consciousness.

UK-based Steve Taylor has caught the eye of international audiences because of his ability to make enlightenment if not easy, at least accessible. The simple, stirring, and poetic reflections here comfort, inspire, and gently bring readers out of the harried, hectic day-to-day and back to the bedrock of peace, and even joy, of our true, essential, and authentic selves. He shows how this is possible when we direct our awareness out of chaos and into calm. In so doing we learn to access the present moment of any day.

Taylor’s reflections look like poetry on the page, inviting open immersion and resonance.

THE FALL

Sometimes there’s a space between thoughts
when a trail of association winds to an end
and the mind stops for a moment
scanning for a new story to spin —
just a tiny gap, a millimeter wide,
but your might find yourself falling between the thoughts
as if between the rungs of a ladder
afraid at first, waiting to crash against the ground,
until you realize there is no ground.
 

You can sense the endless empty space below
but there’s no anxiety, no vertigo —
you’re not falling but floating
beyond the reach of gravity
an astronaut of inner space.
 

Relax and let yourself be cradled
amazed by the immensity of your being
beyond your brain and body
stretching everywhere without reaching
floating everywhere without moving
being without identity.  

Also by Steve Taylor: Waking from Sleep.

Publisher’s Description: 

UK-based Steve Taylor has caught the eye of US - and international - audiences because of his ability to make enlightenment if not easy, at least accessible. The simple, stirring, and poetic reflections here comfort, inspire, and gently bring readers out of the harried, hectic day-to-day and back to the bedrock of peace, and even joy, of our true, essential, and authentic selves. He shows how this is possible when we direct our awareness out of chaos and into calm. In so doing welearn to access the present moment of any day and as Taylor writes, "When the future is full of dread and the past full of regret, where can you take refuge except the present?"
