Review by Grady Harp
British author and philosopher Jonathan Harrison is best described as a Teacher of Being. In his previous books WE ARE ALL ONE he gently but firmly and supportingly guided his readers towards a path of self-realization. And in his superbly written next book NAKED BEING: UNDRESSING YOUR MIND, TRANSFORMING YOUR BODY he advanced his ability to assist the reader in purging the misconceptions of self, offers an understanding of the non-duality (not separating the individual from the universe but instead realizing that all is one) of each of our existences.
Harrison’s new book YOU are THIS: AWAKENING TO THE LIVING PRESENCE OF YOUR SOUL book opens his personal experiences and before delving into the content of the book he offers a very helpful glossary of terms – his own definitions of words that are important to the use of his book. YOU are THIS shares Jonathan’s contemporary philosophy of One-duality wherein the phenomenal world is recognized as real, and the Non-dual direct experience of Awareness is realized to be the catalyst for actualizing the presence of our Authentic Soul. Or as he phrases it, ‘discover the mystery of how one seemingly insignificant little word can transform your life and change the world.’
Reading this book is more of an experience for opening our previously sequestered minds to the possibilities of finding true peace and happiness in being at one with every atom of the Universe. This is not another ‘self help’ book. This is an invitation to an internalized map of being. And Jonathan is a generous and loving guide.
