Summary: Driven by a need to grow and find meaning in a life that until then had been empty and based on the senses, John Bailey set out on a twenty-five year journey of self-discovery. He sought nothing less than the awakening he'd read about in spiritual books-the bliss of an enlightened state promised by most spiritual teachers. Bailey's journey takes him from the deserts of New Mexico to the hills of central Alabama; from the mountains of North Carolina, to the ashrams of northern California. Along the way, he encounters wonders that astonish him. He views the past lives of others unfold before his eyes, feels the kundalini energy snake up his spine, and watches in awe as everything around him shimmers in a blaze of gold light. But in the end Bailey finds the mystic phenomena, robe-wearing gurus, and mind-blowing visions fall short. Experiences that at first electrified him-that seemed breathtaking and exotic-are as ephemeral as an evening breeze. He finds a truth that's much deeper-a gentle presence that will radically change him. Already on Holy Ground offers readers a candid, inspiring look at the life of a contemporary American mystic. Its pages reveal how awareness of presence points the way to serenity and to an end of emotional suffering. His website, abideinpresence.com, also explores this awareness. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
His life uprooted when he's fired from his New York advertising job, the author is thrust on a roller-coaster quest to find life's meaning. Already on Holy Ground chronicles his journey where he experiences wonders that astonish him. He views the past lives of strangers, watches in awe as a Zen master disappears in the desert sand, and sees everything around him shimmer in a blaze of gold light.
In the end the mind-blowing phenomena fall short. In their place he discovers a simple presence that radically changes his life. It brings him serenity and an end to emotional suffering. J.K. Bailey's new website that also explores this presence is found at www.abideinpresence.com.
