Experience the peace and joy of spiritual awakening. It is natural and achievable.
In this inspiring and, above all, practical book, Andrew Seaton guides us to the peace of our true nature as the observing awareness beyond the mind.
The book explains how, beginning in our infancy, we experience a spiritual forgetting. The mind creates abstract interpretations of the world and who we are. These conditioned interpretations become self-fulfilling and create our life experience, our karma. Learn how to see the world as it is in reality, rather than through the distorting filters of the conditioned mind. Discover how simple it is to clear away the mist of the conditioned mind and instantly drop into the awareness Self, which is who you really are.
Importantly, this book shows the reader how to avoid some of the common frustrations and traps in spiritual awakening. Perhaps best of all, it offers a simple strategy for holding in mind the ways of experiencing everyday life as the awareness Self: a simple strategy for spiritual awakening.
“Spiritual Awakening Made Simple” offers a concise, unified and practical formulation that will help you to awaken to your own true nature as peace, contentment and connectedness with all life.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The insights described in my book are broadly consistent with a huge body of wisdom expressed over thousands of years, particularly by people who have realized their inner nature. They are also consistent with many contemporary understandings about human functioning.
However, most of what has been written and spoken about peace, identity and human consciousness overlooks the simplicity of the insights and practices I describe and the potential immediacy of their realization in experience. Most adults in the world today have so lost touch with their inner awareness and have become so identified with the mind and conceptual knowledge that they confuse the spiritual dimension of life with the abstract, rational activity of thinking, talking and writing about philosophical, metaphysical and religious concepts.
Many of the particulars I discuss in my book have been spoken of before, by one teacher here or another there. And yet, there is an overwhelming amount of conceptual and practical clutter, error and confusion in the world regarding spirituality, and many people are feeling frustrated. Through my long, deep and broad investigations in this area, I have finally been able to see through the muddle and pull the essentials together in a way that has served my own awakening well. Through intuitive inspiration, I have been able to present them in my book in a concise, unified and practical formulation that many will find makes things clear and gives their awakening the traction they are wanting.
Excerpt from the end of Chapter 1…
The second surprising thing suggested by the above few examples of direct awareness of oneness with all of life is that nothing could be more natural. Your “awareness Self” is already complete, already who you are. Spiritual awakening is not the result of fixing or improving yourself. The notion of spiritual “development” is a myth that can be a great hindrance.
Awakening occurs naturally as you give up on the interpreting and judging mind. It is not a case of becoming something that you are not, merely of letting go something that you are not. Like sliding down a slippery slide, awakening has its own inertia once you let go of ideas of who you are, what things mean and how things should be.
Peace, contentment and connectedness are our nature. It is perfectly natural that we should all be able to experience this awareness Self. And yet, many people aspiring to spiritual awakening have come to feel that it’s too complicated, that it takes too long and their efforts aren’t bearing much fruit. Some have lost heart. Many don’t quite know what to believe out of so much that is written and spoken about spirituality. Many believe too much. Some wonder whether they deserve it. I hope that readers of this book will discover for themselves that these concerns are unnecessary.
Let us look more closely, then, at how it is that this most natural mode of consciousness has not been common, at why the mass of humanity lives, in varying degrees, in an alienated and discontented mode of being, dominated by an illusory sense of self-as-separate. Then, we will look at some simple and effective ways that the awareness of self-as-connected-with-all-life can become the conscious experience of many, or at least, if you feel drawn, how it can become your experience.
