As It is: The Open Secret to Living an Awakened Lifeby Tony Parsons
Synopses & Reviews
Tony Parsons is one of those rare individuals who brings to his work a deep maturity and wide understanding in matters spiritual. The clarity and natural manner in which Tony writes and speaks about living in the unlimited Awareness of the present is refreshingly authentic.
In As It Is, we are taken on a journey — a journey to nowhere and without a goal to attain. In this voyage, we are simply shown how the deep-rooted misunderstanding of our real nature has caused us to live in apparent pain and fear. Through the radical and direct perception of "what is, as it is," Tony invites us to live life from a wholly different perspective, one that is centered in the infinite awareness of our true self.
Tony Parsons has been sharing this "open secret" to living a fully awakened life with people for over thirty years. His talks and work-shops are highly regarded in England, Western Europe and, more recently, in North America.
"Sometimes we read a book that stands head and shoulders above others — stands alone. Reading As It Is can mean the end of the struggle. Living it is Liberation." Kindred Spirit Magazine
"As It Is is sublime. It is one of the most concise and precise descriptions of Presence that I have ever read. Thank you." Catherine Ingram, author of In the Footsteps of Gandhi
"Tony Parsons invites us all to awaken from the dream of individuality and expose the paradox of spiritual practice. It is an invitation that is both simple and profound. As It Is is sure to be a bestseller." Ricky James, Manager, Watkins Bookstore, Ltd., London
In this landmark work, Tony Parsons writes — without dogma or specific religious references — about awakening to the life of spirit. Seekers who've read numerous books and attended many workshops without satisfaction will find, in As It Is, a satisfying resolution to their search.
As It Is is a profound and radical work that points to the fundamental freedom that is independent of path, process, effort, or belief. In these pages the reader is taken on a journey--one that clearly reveals that there is nothing to become, nor any specific goal to attain. Rather, what is shown is how a deep-rooted misperception of our true identity has caused us to live in "apparent" pain and fear.Through the direct perception of "what is, as it is," Tony Parsons offers the reader a very practical and accessible approach to authentic spiritual realization. His invitation is to live life from a wholly different perspective--one centered in the infinite awareness of one's true Self.
