Rating
REALITY introduces us to the extraordinary mystical tradition that lies right at the roots of Western culture and to the magic of the ancient masters of wisdom who laid the foundations for the world we now live in. It has become common in the West to turn to Eastern civilizations for real understanding and enlightenment. And yet at the origins of our own seemingly materialistic culture lies a tradition of incredible wisdom and significance, which we need now more urgently than ever to rediscover and reclaim. This book is the story of Parmenides Empedocles and others like them: spiritual guides and experts in other states of consciousness prophets and magicians, healers and interpreters of dreams. It also documents the excruciating but inevitable process which led to their work and teaching being distorted, covered over and forgotten. And, most importantly, it presents the original teachings of these people in all their astonishing immediacy and power - revealing their ability to be just as vibrant now as at the dawn of the Western world - to awaken us to what reality truly is. Nothing less than a manual of transformation, REALITY is destined to become a classic.

""Reality" contains the purest and most powerful writing I have ever read." --Michael Baigent, author, "Ancient Traces" Stunningly original, and momentous in its implications, "Reality" is aimed at one of the highest ends I can imagine to restore to us the understanding that the original purpose of Greek philosophy was to launch the Western mind on a profoundly spiritual course.
