Dear Paashi, I so much look forward to discussing the book with you all, especially in the way you describe- in relationship to different wisdom traditions. I very much agree with you that the meaning and purpose we usually function from is as Sree mentioned above, of the surface. The power driving us from our identity beyond the conditioned mind is of a whole other kind.
I think many of us gathered here want to understand how our experiences can relate to science. So it will be very interesting to read the book together and see where it takes us 🙂 Not so long now until it is released, I hope you return to this topic with your observations after reading!
