From ancient Taoist sages and Sufi mystics to Christian contemplatives and contemporary Zen masters, Seeing, Knowing, Being explores the profound truth behind all the worlds mystic traditions: Living a spiritual life has nothing to do with fixing ourselves. It is simply a matter of awakening to what we already are. The real work of self-discoveryand the answer to our suffering, emptiness, and loss of meaningis learning to see in a different way. The mystical adventure is all in the seeing, says John Greer. From departure to arrival, nothing changes but our eyes.

But the process isnt that simple. In this all-embracing work that is destined to become a classic, Greer artfully traces the steps and stages of the delicate process of awakening. He shows how we can move from societys hand-me-down version of reality to the wonder of our true naturefrom conceptual, habitual patterns of thinking to knowing the truth by being.
Like a master artist who captures an image and stirs something deep inside of us, Greer also highlights nearly one hundred evocative metaphors, as varied and colorful as the sages themselves, to kindle your imagination and spark your intuitionto shift your perspective and shake you into an awareness that no amount of explanation can.

What Greer shows, with great wisdom and compassion, is that when you put aside the map of the mind, you can follow the compass of your heart. You can move through the details of lifegoing to work, raising a family, throwing out the garbageand still experience the wonders and oneness of life with deep reverence, gratitude, and joy.

Books often describe journeys. Seeing, Knowing, Being actually takes you on one. . . . A profound expedition into the true nature of life.
MATTHEW FLICKSTEIN, author and producer of the award-winning film With One Voice
