Book Review: Lucid Living, By Tim Freke
A friend of mine told to me Freke was absolutely mind blowing as someone re-imagining spirituality for modern times, but it seemed too similar to Platonism without the rhethorical and poetic prowess. I believe it can be mind blowing for someone who has never read or practiced anything related to wisdom traditions, but for someone who has I enjoyed this book but not as much as I thought I would. I believe it can be mind blowing for someone who has never read or practiced anything related to wisdom traditions, but for someone who has it almost borders on common sense. I admit I agree with many of the ideas but I am a bit put off when someone keeps telling me I should be blown away by their own ideas or feel a "philosophical vertigo". I am a firm believer the work should speak by itself. Thought provoking concept. Passed the book on to my hairdresser so he could have a read Jun 13, Pamela rated it did not like it This small 97 page book was billed to me as being a modern spiritual classic packed with uplifting quotes and a book that would inspire me to help me live in the now.
Lucid Living: A Book You Can Read in One Hour That Will Turn Your World Inside Out
This book provoked me to think, but did not deliver on the promise to change me forever. I agreed with the author in his view that life is an amazing thing which we should all be more appreciative of and that existence itself is fascinating and mysterious. It is all about the idea that we are living in a dream world. By becoming conscious of the fact that we are always dreaming, we can trigger an ultra-wake state called Lucid Living. This awareness makes it easier to manifest things in life. You are the dreamer after all.
