Summary

World renowned leader at the core of the Maharishi Foundations, a Harvard graduate neuroscientist, renowned Vedic scholar, and world reference in Transcendental Meditation, Dr. Tony Nader formulates in this book a series of fundamental existential questions (what is our purpose in life, do we have true control over our destinies?) and, through the study of consciousness, brings us answers with practical benefits that aim to give us enlightenment, peace, and fulfillment.

"In this landmark book, Dr. Tony Nader presents ideas that can change the world. He proposes profound solutions to questions that have long fascinated and intrigued philosophers and scientists. What is Consciousness, do we have freedom? How to get the best out of life, fulfill wishes and create peace and harmony among peoples and nations? He offers these solutions, based on a simple underlying paradigm, that unifies mind, body, and environment into an ocean of pure Being, Pure Consciousness. A must read for any seeker of answers to the mysteries of life, the absolute and ultimate truth." (David Lynch)

"I want everyone to know what Consciousness is and how to develop it to enjoy the full potential of individual and social life." (Dr. Tony Nader)

Is there some hidden purpose in life, a secret design, a meaningful logic, a goal to be achieved? Where do we come from and where do we go after we leave? Why should we be fighting? Can we choose? Are we free or slaves of destiny, of the laws of nature or of God?

As sentient beings who wish to take control of their lives, these questions are fundamental, and everyone ends up making assumptions or strongly subscribing to beliefs about many of them. Those convictions become our underlying "cosmovision" that influences everything we do.

I turned to the study of medicine, psychiatry, and neurology to understand why, although we are so similar, we can be so different in our opinions, mentality, and points of view. But the answers to my fundamental questions were too complex and abstract for scientific investigation. It was Transcendental Meditation that allowed me to explore them through direct experience, rather than analysis and deduction.

This book is dedicated to all seekers of knowledge, scientists, philosophers, teachers, wise leaders, and guides who investigate the secrets of how nature works and the effort to improve life on Earth.

Worthy of your time

As an experienced psychonaut and yet a young meditator, I found it sometimes hard to comprehend and yet a very worthy listen. Provides tools for understanding of consciousness. Would probably listen again. Will recommend. Being a writing of non-fiction, it does provide a narrative in which a full and thorough understanding of the topic can be so important for humanity.

Unity is what we are, we don't have to work for it

Since Consciousness is all there is, we don't have to work hard to create unity, we're already part of one singularity. Dr. Nader shows we now have the capacity to generate coherence from the field of Consciousness, and he both addresses questions that have plagued humans for millenia, and provides answers we can use to create a coherent world, where each one enjoys all good. This new paradigm elegantly brings fulfillment to area after area of human life.

Listening each time satisfies me and gives me appreciation of human thought, awareness of where we can go, and the desire to act on what he presents. Dr. Nader speaks with very tight logical development, yet each part has wholeness that makes listening to just that bit valuable. His voice is pleasant and I enjoy even a few minutes of a story on its own.

One of the best readings of all time

A very well written and simple to understand book that dives very deep in answering hard questions of who we are, why are we here and what is the purpose of life in all different forms and shapes. Representing different flavors of existence, absolute and relative in a very tangible manner. I wish I had access to the knowledge shared in this book long time ago in life. A must read.

A must read!

This book demonstrate from many perspectives the nature of our reality, who we are, and how we can serve ourselves, society, nation, and the whole humanity.
The elaborations is flowing very smoothly from one chapter to the other, explanations are simple yet very deep.
It is a book for everyone, and a blessing for the whole world without exaggeration.
I believe that understanding all the practical ideas postulated in this book must go hand in hand with meditation for super-luminal synthesis towards wholeness.

Dr. Nader's book is fantastic.

This book is absolutely fantastic and powerful and inspiring. I started to listen and couldn't stop till I finished the whole book. It has so much knowledge in it that one can listen repeatedly and always will be enriched. This book presents unprecedented knowledge and suggested paradigm is very convincing. It's a genuine book and it's author is nothing less than genius. I am sure he will be very soon Nobel Prize Winner.
