“The Way to Nowhere”

About

The book exposes the way in which past knowledge and conditioned thought confuse the mind and prevent the individual from attaining his or her maximum human potential, and shows how belief divides and separates one from another, inevitably leading to perennial conflict in human affairs. It points the way, and serves as a guide, to the task of awakening into full conscious awareness and oneness with the ground of being for those who are ready and committed to the path which, as the reader will discover, is a way to nowhere.
