Summary

If life is but a dream, to what do we awake?

The central premise of this book is the admittedly ridiculous but incontrovertibly true assertion that the universe does not exist.

This is something you can understand conceptually, like watching a documentary about Antarctica, or experientially, like moving to Antarctica.

There's also a related phenomenon where you fall asleep watching the documentary and wake up in the frozen wasteland.

That's gotta be weird, but the truth is that you're asleep in the wasteland dreaming that you're not, so that's where waking up gets you.

Great writer. Best narrator.
Another classic from Jed.
If you want your spiritual journey to end. Read all of his books.

Try it if you dare

Oh boy what a fantastic book. Jeds writing is so accessible and cuts through so much bullshit and at 67 I’m wishing I had picked up his writings earlier in my life story. I have to admit that I have over the years bought into so much of the BS and the relief and at the same time consternation are palpable. This book will clearly not be to everyone’s taste but if you’re checking it out dig in deep and stay with it. He deals with a huge yet simple Truth that we all must see and hear at some point and delivers it with humour. He walks his talk. The real deal . Go on do yourself a favour and read his writings.

Jed does it to me again

Hadn't read Jed (poetic) in quite a few years but his words have a way of restarting my seek engines. Audible needs to make all his work available

Entertainment value = high . And that’s all that really exists .

Part of me fucking hates this book . It’s the part of me that wants to believe I have a mission on this earth and that I matter . If you want to be happy in life don’t read this book . There really is no going back , because you’re taking the red pill . Focus and intent are now my weapons to take more red pills , then more , until my all my brain tissue is dead . Enjoi !

great insight

I enjoyed this book. The blend of storytelling, first person historical insight all blended well. The little truths of life are litered throughout also. If you dig deep enough in any theological study you can find many of the things spoken of in this book.

The narrator was very enjoyable also. He seemed not only skilled in storytelling but also in the subject himself.

Back to Life Back to Reality

One eye, open it, and see I am. Make every moment with intent and laser focus. Don't try to convince any one about I am. It is a quest only you can wake up to, and not invite others. Reading this shit means you fuck with it.

???

I really liked listening to this audio book. at times it was basically white noise. Most of the book made you think outside of the box and the Alice in wonderland parts were very entertaining. I noticed that in the beginning chapters he stated that there was no God and then I felt like he proceeded to talk about God for the rest of the book in some way shape or form. I especially liked the small chapters that were just thought patterns he really nailed the way most minds think and kind of wander off into segments of ridiculousness. all in all, I am looking forward to listening to a new Jed book as soon as it's available.

This is a trip you want to take ;)

What do you desire? What kind of life do you want? Maybe this life - this journey is EXACTLY what "you" wanted all along. Maybe you realize that reading this work of art... maybe not ;)
