How does one traverse the spiritual landscape to move beyond suffering to experience the peace and love of God, to transcend illusion and realize the state of enlightenment? In this collection of inspiring passages from David R. Hawkins' work, the reader is reminded of the illusory nature of the personal self (identification of the ego/mind) and the direct pathways to transcend the ego/mind's trappings. Once we have moved beyond these divisions, many of the illusions that surround us collapse. David R. Hawkins has been one of the leading voices of New Thought for decades and this book is an excellent selection of his thoughts on a key subject. This pocket edition is designed especially for today's spiritual student on the go, to inspire contemplation and reflection in whatever environment one finds oneself. Dissolving the Ego, "Realizing the Self" is a reliable companion on the aspirant's quest toward higher truth.
