Banyen's Description: 

Steve Taylor offers short and powerful poetic reflections as a guide to spiritual awakening, and as experiential glimpses of the state of enlightenment itself. As Eckhart Tolle (who’s written a foreword to this book) has written, the poetic form has been “recognized since ancient times as a highly appropriate medium for the expression and transmission of spiritual truth.”

Your mind is full of flowing energy, like a river

but it gets polluted easily, if you don’t protect it

from stress and overstimulation.

Then the energy turns toxic

and makes you feel sick inside.

So be gentle with your mind.

Allow it to be filled with space

not clogged up with information.

Allow it to be soothed with stillness

not bombarded with stimuli.

And then your mind will serve you

with quiet and easy grace

and bring you an endless flow of gifts

from a place beyond the mind.

Taylor ranges widely, through subjects including “Making the Human Race Whole,” “Freedom from the Past,” and “The Reality of Connection,” always in clear and simple language. Best of all, he reminds readers of the choices they always have when life feels chaotic and overwhelming —empathy, acceptance, and love.

Soothing but also challenging, Taylor’s words continually affirm the profound bedrock of peace and even joy in the present that is always available. The book’s “Clear Light” reflection says it best:

There is nothing that can’t be undone— no past injury that can’t be healed / no past mistake that can’t be corrected— in the clear light of the present.

Reading this book can be a transformational spiritual experience in itself.

Also by Steve Taylor are The Leap and The Calm Center.
