Nonduality Highlights -     

In this issue a review of Michael Langford's The Most Direct and Rapid Means To Eternal Bliss. And an excerpt.    


by Michael Langford  

Langford says, "Awakening the extremely intense desire for Liberation is the most important first step that can be taken towards being liberated now in this lifetime."

Michael Langford is intense. Perhaps no one in our current times has provided a more intense, precise, and concentrated teaching.

The intensity of this book could awaken or uncover the intensity of your desire for enlightenment.

Michael even places scriptural values on the book: "This book is a new doorway for humanity." "There are more than fourteen hundred sentences in this book. Those sentences describe a very precise formula. If the formula is changed, the formula will usually no longer be effective."

This book could be your guru. No teacher is necessary other than this book and the methods described, Langford declares. Doing exactly what the author says could get you enlightened.

Michael spends a lot of time telling you to remove all distractions in your life and to hold only to your natural commitments: washing, eating, making a living, raising kids, etc. Michael doesn't tell you at what point brushing your teeth becomes an ego preservation strategy. However, that will become clear to you as you follow the practices.

By virtue of its intensity, commitment, declarations of greatness; by virtue of its precision and concentration of instruction, this book is scriptural in nature. That means it could have an immediate and great impact on the reader.
