Banyen's Description: 

If you think that “liberation” is a special state reserved only for enlightened masters and gurus, think again. In his new book, An Extraordinary Absence, British awake man Jeff Foster invites you to forget everything you know, everything you’ve been taught, everything you’ve ever read about spiritual awakening, Oneness, enlightenment, nonduality and Advaita, and to consider a new possibility: the possibility of absolute freedom, right now, right here in the midst of this very ordinary life. Using everyday language and drawing on both personal experience and age-old wisdom, Jeff shares the possibility that all the seeking and longing of the mind can come to an absolute end with the falling-away of the sense of being a separate individual, and a plunge into unconditional love. And in that plunge—which is totally beyond anything you have ever imagined—this so-called ordinary life reveals its great Secret. Written with stunning clarity and aliveness, this book is a love letter to the exhausted spiritual seeker who is simply longing to come Home.

A woman is asking a question. She wants to experience Oneness; she is looking for hints and tips. Her pen is poised to take notes…

Silence. I have no answer for her. This is empty of question and answers. I am a child, I know nothing about nonduality. All I know is car horns, the whiff of aftershave, the blowing of noses and aching of feet. This is where I live. Right here, not in some other dimension.

Also by Jeff Foster are Beyond Awakening and The Revelation of Oneness. Visit him at www.lifewithoutacentre.com.
