Waking From Sleep
The Causes of Awakening Experiences and How to Make Them PermanenteBook - 2010
How much of your waking time are you fully awake? On the other hand, how often do you stumble through the day on autopilot, half-asleep and out of contact with yourself, instead of feeling connected and alive? In Waking from Sleep, Steve Taylor suggests that our normal consciousness is really a kind of sleep from which we sometimes wake up into a more intense and complete reality. Steve provides what is perhaps the first-ever clear explanation of higher states of consciousness, or awakening experiences. This work delves into: - The methods we human beings have used throughout history to induce awakening experiences, including meditation, sex, sports, psychedelic drugs, and sleep deprivation - How higher states of consciousness were normal and natural to some of the worlds peoples (and still are, in some cases) - How we can make wakefulness our normal state again. By fully explaining awakening experiences, the author makes them much more accessible, which may lead to a revolution in our psychological development as human beings!
