Loving All That Is

Because it’s very different from any other “religious” book that I’ve ever read, I really like “The Most Rapid and Direct Means to Eternal Bliss” (free pdf download here). In the book, mysterious Michael Langford lays down step by step instructions for five spiritual practices:

  • THE AWARENESS WATCHING AWARENESS METHOD
  • THE ABANDON RELEASE METHOD
  • THE ETERNAL METHOD
  • THE INFINITE SPACE METHOD
  • THE LOVING-ALL METHOD

To give you a taste of the book’s style and content, here is the procedure for THE LOVING-ALL METHOD:

Love your thoughts, your feelings, your body, your actions, the objects you see, the people you see, every input from each of your senses, every word you utter, every word spoken to you. Piece of cake, no?

The other night, I went to bed with a strong resolve to start practicing THE LOVING-ALL METHOD “tomorrow“. When I woke up the next morning, within seconds I deviated from the plan. My shoulder ached from a touch of arthritis and I automatically thought and said “Ow – damn shoulder!“. Upon discovering my transgression a few milliseconds later, I thought “D’oh!” and gave up. Maybe I’ll give it another spirited try in the future.

It’s weird. When I read a spiritual book that “clicks” (and not many of them do), I experience a sense of peace and serenity during the read. But as soon as I close the cover, the feeling dissolves and IT takes over once again – and it’s hard to love IT; very hard.

      You’re welcome. I hope it pierces your heart and banishes the “imposter” from your being. 🙂

    I would hate anyone who actually behaved this way – they’d be incredibly boring, I think. Old curmudgeon bastards are much more fun and interesting….
