Our Place in the Universe: ‘the first factor of enlightenment’

‘Life, for each of us, is just a series of moment-to-moment experiences’. 
These experiences start when weare born and continue until we die, 
rushing headlong after each other, so that they seem to merge into a whole 
that we call ‘my life’.

Awareness is the constant substratum in which all things appear to arise, exist and subside.

If we choose to identify with this deepest level –awareness - (the perceiver)
rather than the surface level, mind/body (the perceived), then thoughts
and sensations are seen for what they truly are, just ephemeral
(existing only briefly) objects which come and go,
leaving awareness itself totally unaffected.

The e-book Beyond The Separate Self

Welcome!The book is designed to help its readers go ‘beyond the separate self’; that is to free oneself from obsessive thinking and worrying about one’s self-image, health, wealth, status, achievements, lack of achievements, past, future and ultimate survival. These are all caused by identifying oneself as an individual object in a universe of multiple objects, and also by comparing oneself with like objects (other people).

The e-book A Lignt Unto Yourself

Welcome!The aim of this book is twofold: firstly to help you, the reader,
become ‘a light unto yourself’. This will be facilitated by
providing a framework in which you can investigate the nature
of your moment to moment experience, which hopefully will
result in you achieving what the Buddha called ‘the first factor
of enlightenment’: becoming ‘aware of awareness’. The
second is to provide pointers so that the book can help shed
‘light onto your Self’. That is to point to the nature of your
true Self, which can be discovered by your own investigations. 

By observing mental states you also become aware of the seven factors of enlightenment. These are: awareness of awareness, investigation of the Way, vigour, joy, serenity, concentration and equanimity.'

The first two are paramount and the last five are outcomes of these. This is what this book is all about, becoming 'aware of awareness' through direct investigation and then continuing with further 'investigation of the Way'

The e-book Humanity: Our Place in the Universe:
The Central Beliefs of the World’s Major Religions

Welcome!This book considers the place of humanity in the universe according to the world’s major religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. This is accomplished by exploring the correlation between self-identity and world-view in each of these. These folowing religions are covered:
  • Judaism
  • Christianity
  • Islam
  • Hinduism
  • Juddhism
  • Ramakrishna:

For each of the above, the e-book describes: what is the nature of God, how was the universe created, what is the nature of man, what is the purpose of life and what happens after death.
