Synopsis

Inspired by the works of Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Adyashanti, and many other well-known (and not so well-known) spiritual teachers, this book chronicles the journey of a man enamored with the idea of Enlightenment. Not only are the great wisdom teachings brought to life in this book, the inspirations, meditations and revelations experienced by the author are also eloquently expressed. This book is written in such a way that it appeals to those who have been actively seeking spiritual Enlightenment, as well as those who only have a mild curiosity. The teachings and experiences shared in this book are actually lessons on how to live a happier and more peaceful life. Since this book shares real life experiences with which most of us can relate, it also serves as a road map to bring about a deeper understanding of what Awakening means in our daily lives. There have been many great books written about Enlightenment, which serve as wonderful pointers to Truth. However, this book was written by a seeker for seekers, which provides an entirely different perspective on how these teachings can change life for the better. Whether you are actively seeking Enlightenment or not, the impact of these pointers can be quite profound. Many may find that being exposed to these teachings through someone like themselves, as opposed to a traditional guru, is much more palatable. This book is the manifestation of the author’s passion for Truth, and his desire for everyone to be exposed to it in some way. It is written to be receptive to a broader audience than many other books on Self-realization, and could be considered a comprehensive overview on the subject. The journal style in which it is written illustrates the progression and integration process that can occur as we delve deeper into our true Self. It is also full of helpful meditation practices for those who don’t like to meditate. Since we are all on the same path, being driven by a desire for happiness and inner peace, joining another on their journey allows us to share in the Aha moments as we come to grips with the truth of who we really are, beyond the mind made identity we believe ourselves to be. This book contains numerous glimpses into what is in store for us should we dare admit that we could be wrong about everything.

Trey was born in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1973, and he still lives and works near Asheville. After dropping out of highschool at the age of 16, he went on to graduate from Western Carolina University, in Cullowhee, NC, with a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems at the age of 19, and completed the Master of Business Administration degree two years later at the age of 21. He and his now wife, Shelby, decided to take a Master's in Human Resource Development after that, while they were deciding what to do next. Later on he completed the Master of Entrepreneurship degree program, because his parents had created the program and he thought it sounded like fun.He started his first venture, a web page development company, at the age of 18. After completing his MBA, Trey spent some time as a business plan consultant, working for business owners looking for venture capital funding. He now runs the family business, an academic conferencing and publishing company, and oversees the production of seventeen academic journals.When Trey was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2004 at the age of 31, he started trying to make sense of a world that he thought he already knew. His research took him well beyond the realm of business to a study of science and medicine, including everything from biology to physics to alternative healing practices.Looking to fill in the gaps in what these subjects were missing, he began studying various religions, shamanism, metaphysics, spirituality, meditation, and eventually discovered advaita and the idea of cosmic consciousness. He then realized that enlightenment and self-realization was what he had been trying to find all along.Trey is the co-founder of the Asheville Sangha online community (www.AshevilleSangha.com), which was developed for people interested in non-duality, self-realization, meditation, enlightenment, etc. He also facilitates Awakening Practices Group meetings in the Asheville area.
