There’s nothing mystical or magical about awakening. On a healthy world, awakening is the process of coming to know and understand the world. On a healthy world, in a healthy body, awakening occurs naturally. Indeed, on a healthy world, and as noted in this article, awakening is a powerful instinctual/spiritual force that drives us all to know and understand. Just ask any parent frustrated by the toddler’s constant stream of “what” and “why” questions. As kids, we are driven to know.
Unfortunately, this world is not a healthy world. On this world, our powerful drive to awaken is damaged and subverted by a Toxic Socialization and indoctrination process that fills our minds and our news feeds with vacuous “truths” designed to disorient and confuse so we’re never what is going on, or what we should do.
At the LP, we can’t provide you with all your awakening needs, but we can provide key resources and orientation materials. To get started, simply read the books and resources listed on this page. These books are designed to give you concepts, background information, and practices that can help you take a big awakening step forward.
Before you get started, consider some awakening mantras and visualizations. Awakening mantras and visualizations are mindful action statements and visualizations that help you initiate the awakening process, and that guide the direction and scope of your journey. A simple awakening mantra is “I wish to wake up. I wish the truth and nothing but.” Other mantras and visualization are provided on this page. Choose one appropriate for you.
The following are the basic/foundational LP books. These books provide a wealth of concepts and practices that can help you both understand and navigate the awakening process. These books build on each other, introducing concepts and practices in a gradual and graded way. For most efficient practice, read the books roughly in the order they are presented.
