Enlightenment!—You may spend your whole life seeking it, but never find it. You may never search for it or even know that it’s possible, but reach it by accident. And you may live out your life ignorant of its existence, and die having never discovered your highest potential for happiness, self-mastery, and creative brilliance.

The enlightened psychologist Abraham Maslow was the first to scientifically describe the fully enlightened person—which he called the “self-actualizing person.” Building on Maslow’s work through careful biographical study of the lives of self-actualizing people, humanistic psychologist and biographer Roman Gelperin found their enlightenment to stem from a nearly-identical handful of breakthrough experiences, which he will reveal to you in this book.

Partly a firsthand account of the author’s own accidental enlightenment, and partly a full biography of Abraham Maslow’s rise to self-actualization, this book will teach you how to identify, understand, and attain those key experiences of:

  • Unlocking the perennial method of using your mind to its fullest potential
  • Being fully at peace with yourself, by deconstructing your internal conflicts
  • Deriving a near-constant joy, pleasure, and satisfaction from sheer existence
  • Half-creating, half-discovering your driving passion and unique purpose in life
  • Automatically evolving the self-actualizing qualities of total honesty, supreme self-confidence, natural creativity, effortless spontaneity, and independent thinking

By the end of this book, you will thoroughly understand what enlightenment is, how and why it occurs, and the ways to pursue it!

Edge of the Breach

EDGE OF THE BREACH
Book 1 of the Rift Cycle

We all become monsters at the edge of the breach. In a post-apocalyptic world where season of birth determines power — spring healers, summer mages, fall shapeshifters, and winter shields — a man and a woman emerge from tragic childhoods to lead humanity on opposite sides of an interrealm war.

There is a hole in the sky. They call it the Rift. A portal to the gods. The scar of a suffering world. Through it, the gods rule the last scraps of civilization, harkening war. As chaos beckons, two leaders emerge from the ashes of a dying planet.

Julian Kyder is the son of an abusive rape victim who compensates for his abandonment through psychopathy. Sira Rune is a cancer survivor who dedicates her life to living free and fearless while experiencing the taboo and the unorthodox. Rune is the only one unafraid of Kyder, and that terrifies him, because he only knows how to function through fear. Even though she gives him more chances than he deserves, how much violence can she forgive? When is a person beyond redemption? While he struggles to control his demons and she struggles to find purpose, the gods drag the ruined world into war.

CONTENT WARNING: The Rift Cycle is a highly graphic series intended for mature audiences. It is about the raw, harsh, brutal nature of truth, and it is violent, gory, and unflinching in its execution.

Nondualism: Merging Psychology, Spirituality and Philosophy (Second Edition)

cover

Updated and Expanded Second Edition:
Introduces the concept of the Ego Migration which claims that the ego migrated from the right hemisphere to the left in order to develop the logical faculties of the mind in childhood. Furthermore, all spiritual disciplines were developed to reverse this migration to acquire whole-brain intelligence. This can be seen in the practice of meditation, where minimizing the use of the left hemisphere is done to stimulate right hemispheric activity.

In this eclectic, easy-to-read study, multi-disciplinary evidence is presented to validate the Ego Migration from psychology to quantum physics, most notably the ego defense mechanisms initially discovered by Sigmund Freud and elaborated on by Anna Freud.

This book discusses many complex topics explained in a simple and straightforward manner. Such topics include Carl Jung’s Individuation Process, the archetypes, how the defense mechanisms employed by the ego contracts consciousness and the actual role of yoga.
