Invitation to Awaken: Embracing Our Natural State of Presence
Synopses & Reviews
This book contains selected dialogues between the author and people throughout Europe and the U.S. who attended his recent talks. Invitation to Awaken builds on the themes in Parsons' earlier book, As It Is, to further demystify misperceptions about spiritual awakening, while clarifying the nature of this simple and natural state of being.
Tony Parsons has the ability to go straight to the true meaning behind complicated spiritual and metaphysical concepts. Parsons states that one should not adopt concepts or beliefs that perpetuate the existence of a separate self. Rather, he says that we already are what we so desperately seek; this just needs to be perceived rather than clouded over with new beliefs.
