    1. This book talks endlessly about spiritual enlightenment, but I just kept hearing the line from the movie The Princess Bride You keep saying that word I do not think it means what you think it means The author is elitist and arrogant than once he says, the difference between you and I is that I am enlightened and you are not What he calls enlightenment sounds like apathy By trying to show that we re all just wrapped up in some elaborate movie, he tries to demonstrate what someone is like who ha [...]


    2. This book about one man s experience of enlightenment and his life teaching others about it at a small Iowa ashram is a fantastic exercise in critical thinking Well written and entertaining to read, it offers a valuable perspective on the difference between the kind of yummy, mystical unity experience that most people assume is enlightenment, and what McKenna refers to as actual truth realization, the rather less comfortable process of losing complete identification with your sense of self The b [...]


    3. Well this book seems to have mostly positive reviews here, well I would like to add my observations to the mix Some facts about the book 1 It s a work of fiction the author does not exists, there s no ashram, no Jed2 Just like the actual guru, U.G Krishnamurti the author repeatedly states that you don t want enlightenment, but in contrast to that acknowladged anti guru Jed does an inadequate job of proving that he s enlightened Ok here an opinion slipped into the mix 3 He gives one process in th [...]


    4. After reading lots of Eckhart Tolle and Neale Donald Walsch, this is a good wake up call from all the spiritual and enlightenment business.


    5. This book is not for the casual seeker Be warned It is a spiritual neutron bomb and it can be a shattering experience This is for people who have spent their lives looking to understand why they were different and why they were compelled to seek the mythical state of enlightenment while their friends and family seemed so much at home in the world I spent much of my life on the seeker s path and this book was the final trigger for me It is not to be approached lightly Also the author is not what [...]


    6. This book was introduced to me through the Author of Busting Loose from the Money Game, Robert Sheinfeld.I have to say that it has turned my world upside down I can t explain where I am exactly, but I find myself questioning everything That s always good, because change is a constant.Where do I go from here I don t know Everything I believe is up for review.


    7. LOVE LOVE LOVE I love everything about this book AND I think I know who the real Jed McKenna is, but I ll never tell I totally get why the author would remain anonymous Both my husband and I devoured this book so well written and entertaining I can t wait to read the rest of the trilogy as well as the 4th book by Jed.



    8. My head hurts, I m not sure who I am any or if I even exist, but I guess that s the point If there is a point in anything at all Not sure about that either.Can t really say much else than read it yourself and find out It s a journey But maybe you shouldn t take it if you re not interested in truth.This book is full of stories about seekers I used to be a seeker, too Gladly it s harder to continue being one after reading this What s the point of seeking something that s been under your nose all a [...]


    9. Only two disappointing things 1 I wish it was longer, deeper, meatier Because the sequels, as Mr McKenna slips away from what most people consider to be reality, become lessengaging Complete Fulfilling, I guess.2 I was hoping for light bulbs and gut punches Instead, I found my deep, dark inklings confirmed much eloquently than I could have mustered which is great, but not so helpful if you re into the acute psychosis brought on by truth being beaten violently into your skull.


    10. superba cartedistruge o gramada de mituri despre iluminare si despre sine nu i niciun fel de iluminare pentru ca nu exista niciun fel de sine care sa fie iluminatexista numai vedere clarasi singura cale catre asta spune tipul e sa taci si sa te intrebi, ani in sir, daca exista ceva adevarat si sa chestionezi toate presupozitiile si sa tai in carne vie daca gasesti lucruri false tot ceea ce credem noi e fals, spune el tare fain scrisa.tare fain.


    11. In essence a non dual approach to spirituality, exposing all the ego constructs that pose as spirituality for what they really are



    12. Allegiance to any spiritual teaching or teacher any outside authority is the most treacherous beast in the jungle The first thing we want to do when we begin our journey is find thee companionship and validity that comes with an established group, and in so doing we effectively end the journey before it begins.Anyone familiar with the process of deprogramming someone who has been brainwashed by a cult will be able to appreciate what s really involved in breaking free of this kind of allegiance, [...]


    13. Another one of those books that makes me want to write my own book in defiance of these books I like the author s style, tone, and voice, but he s just another self proclaimed enlightened guy, who in my opinion isn t very enlightened at all There is no end Jed If you think you ve arrived, you haven t To simply unplug is not living It s called Autism The author would say there is no wrong, that it doesn t exist You could not be wrong UPDATE I forgot I am with you on the one prevailing through li [...]


    14. This book is a must read for any person who considers him herself to be on a serious spiritual path to enlightenment But be warned McKenna is not here to congratulate you on your progress In fact, he systematically tears apart many of the beliefs spiritual practitioners hold most sacred, and he ruthlessly explains why common spiritual practices are probably holding you back from your professed goal of enlightenment.A brutally honest wake up call and a much needed kick in the ass, this book is no [...]


    15. I can t remember exactly what led me to this book except a list your favorite book ever thread someplace I could tell from the title and description that I would likely hate it I tried to get through it as a Humbert Humbert esque deconstruction of the narrator, but it s no good Two hundred plus pages of an egotist saying how he has no ego DNF at like 80% After I put it down, a weight was lifted I m going to credit myself for this one When I Googled a little to find some info, I almost immediate [...]


    16. Let me immediately spoil it for you, do you get enlightened by reading it No, you don t.Is book worth reading it Yes, it is Should you read it I ll come to that at end of review.Well, I stumbled upon a book by friend s recommendation He said he wouldn t recommend it to the others because it can make you quite self destructive, but that he thinks it will go fine with me So, little bit tempted by that I ve added it to to read list and wait it for, I don t know, maybe half a year before starting it [...]


    17. you need to interpret this book the right way, if you misinterpret it oh well it basically about what happens when you kill your ego This book is a harsh book, it s about cutting through the old bullshit ladders that we have internally with ego it s about decoding yourself so you can build whatever you want In the beginning he put the book like there s no meaning in life kinda sadistic approach y know, and then you re like if there s no meaning in life why the fuck should i believ in you y know, [...]


    18. The books do seem to be fiction of a sort like Castaneda s except that Jed McKenna the guru don Juan is the author, but perhaps as much an invention as Carlos the author There is much contradiction in the books, though sometimes that seems as much a good thing as not For example, how can a person who claims to have no preference for living over dying have a preference for NY over LA Really Does that compute When McKenna says he hates LA, maybe that is him, the enlightened being, getting all the [...]


    19. This book brought me to a level of observation above and beyond where most books bring me to Jed s philosophy is unique to the rest of the new spiritual world in which we are sold the idea that enlightenment comes in the form of yoga poses posted on Instagram and your knowledge of Buddhist history He strips down the material values of enlightenment and teaches us his own perception of what raw enlightenment is without the frills Jed is an honest truth seeker and I appreciate his clarification of [...]


    20. I don t know whether Jed McKenna actually exists, much less whether or not he s an enlightened being I do know how deeply this resonated with me As an unenlightened being, myself, I was stirred by the descriptions of the unenlightened students and pre enlightened Jed than by the descriptions of what enlightenment is like Jed nails the feelings that come from having nagging questions that won t go away, of perceiving that vast dark cloud and knowing the only way out is through, and the sense of [...]


    21. I don t share this book with most people, like Jack Nicholson said You can t handle the truth and so it is with 99% of humanity If you think yourself to be in the one percentile then maybe you should read this book, any poor review you read about it is just written by someone who shouldn t have picked it up, One does not just walk into Mordor and one does not lightly pick up Damnedest and start perusing it like a bit of light reading.


    22. The first book by Jed McKenna give a good picture of how easily everyone can reach a state of enlightenment Only the price of this truth is everything The book also shows that you are not who you think you are Highly reccomended reading


    23. Not sure how to say thisis is an amazing and dangerous book I highly recommend you read the entire serious But be warnedyou will not come out the other side the same




    24. Jed says he doesn t socialize because he doesn t have anything in common with others I think he s wrong about this, but that s just coming from my ego as will most everything else I say in this review I have a lot in common with him For one, like him, I am enlightened For two, I did it on my own without a formal teacher For three, I like reading books on the subject because it gives me good ways to explain it It s why I read his book For four, I m fond of Emerson s essays For five, I use a pseud [...]


    25. Summary After reading The Power of Now A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment and A New Earth Awakening to Your Life s Purpose I was expecting of the same However, Jed McKenna strips all the lofty talk of the ego and Being and replaces it with something approachable The book showcases various discussions the author has with people around his ashram a spiritual hermitage in Iowa Actual information and public appearances by the author seem to be scarce, which has piqued my curiosity This is the firs [...]


    26. I think that Jed s work is a great introduction to this enlightenment thing With his personal anecdotes and stories, he makes this book fun to read, along with all the great insights that this book is full of.I, personally, try to understand what awakening is not, and Jed helps the reader to see that clearly The fact that just a typical guy, who likes to ride a bike to mountains and skydive dozens of times a year is at the same time awakened to his true nature, breaks the guru stereotype for me [...]
