Description of Waking Up by Sam Harris ePub
“Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion” is a deeply important meditation on the nature of spiritual experience. Sam Harris is the author of this wonderful book. Sam Harris delivers an amazingly articulate perspective in regards to spirituality without religion. This book is an excellent guide to spirituality without all the mysticism of religion. Sam Harris has written books on ethics, religion, and atheism and is known for founding Project Reason, a group that debates science and secular values. He continues in that vein with his newest book, “Waking Up.” From New Age mysticism, near-death experiences, gurus of all stripes, few are spared his critical eye, including The Dalai Lama. He finds little to embrace in institutionalized religions, including Buddhism. Disputatious but not negative, it’s often a fun read. But virtually all his positive attention deals with the concept of awareness and the importance he places on loosening the grip of self from our perception of reality. The book also roughly chronicles his lifelong pursuit of the enlightened state of being starting with a solo wilderness trip at 16, an Ecstasy trip at 20, living through years of multiple hallucinogenic and then later, in month-long silent retreats with renowned teachers. He is zealous. His pursuit of a rational basis for spirituality is the primary focus but along the way, he offers interesting discussions on the nature of consciousness, spirituality, and various personalities and practices of meditation.
From his published works on philosophy, ethics, religion and an armload of degrees he seems well qualified to render judgments on his subject, and he doesn’t disappoint. After throwing jabs at every religious practice almost, he zeroes in on the simple, but profound observation. We are not a self-looking out at the world through the eyes in our head, rather we are consciousness itself. From his perspective meditation is a practice which, by breaking down identification with thought, reveals pure consciousness not constrained by thoughts. This jibes with other Buddhist texts and the idea sounds simple, but it is not easy in practice. Harris has ruffled many feathers with his broadsides and critiques and of anyone he sees guilty of intellectual dishonesty. Even in this current work, he has disappointed some Atheists who think that he has dropped his atheist cape by embracing a form of Buddhist meditation. Overall, Sam Harris’s writing style is clear and concise which is important especially on a subject as controversial as spirituality. This is a great work that is intellectually brilliant and is an interesting guide to anyone trying to better their own lives as well as the lives of others.
