I've read numerous books on awakening and unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this book at all.

It all depends on who we think we are. Adyashanti describes his awakening and what it means to live an awakened life. The unfathomable world of zen broken down by a realized master. This book rests on the shoulders of those who have done this dedicated work and could not have come into existence without them. To discover what will remain when you will no longer be human, and what exists prior to your humanness, and thus to be satisfied you have found the answer you were spiritually inclined to seek, you will have to become naked of yourself, to feel the nothingness of space within the cells and at the core, to not only see it but become this, move as this, begin dancing as this.
