Eddie Travis is a writer and speaker on philosophical and awareness issues. His subject matter includes psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, meditation, human relationships, and bringing about positive change in society. Maintaining that society is ultimately the product of the interactions of individuals and their thoughts. Fundamental societal change can emerge only through freely undertaking radical change in the individual, the elimination of self. This radical change is the awareness that we're not who we think we are. Eddie stresses the need for a paradigm shift in the psyche of every human being and emphasizes that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.
Eddie has made certain discoveries, and he is simply doing his best to make these discoveries accessible to all those who are able to listen. His work does not contain a body of doctrine, nor does he offer techniques or methods for obtaining a silent mind. Eddie does not subscribe to any school of political or ideological beliefs. On the contrary, Eddie maintains that these are the very factors that divide humans and bring about conflict and war. He reminds his listeners again and again that we are all human beings first and not Christians, Muslims, Buddhist or Hindus.
He stresses there is no religion, race or creed inferior or superior to another. There is no human whether rich or poor, famous or unknown, skilled or unskilled, that we are not different from one another in any case. Eddie is not a fan of labeling people good or bad, he says it's other people's thoughts or an individual's own thoughts that makes this judgment or has this opinion. Humans are incapable of knowing who they are; how can it be that they can know another?
He is not aiming to set up any new system of religious belief. Rather, it is up to each human being to see if they can discover for them self that to which Eddie is calling attention to; the human ego. The objective is to go on from there to make new discoveries on your own about how devastating the false self is to ones mental health and quality of life.
The first thing Eddie will tell you is what he is not. He's not a theoretical physicist nor is he an astrobiologist. He doesn't have a PHD or an MBA. Frankly he doesn't even have a college degree.
However he does have the same thing you have; although you may have never experienced it yet, and that would be awareness of his thoughts.
Eddie has been a golf instructor for twenty plus years, and has worn many different hats from a personal coach to counselor, psychologist, and even a priest. When interviewing him I said, "Priest?" His answer was, "Well not exactly; although if you consider the driving range a confession booth I've had my fair share of confessions." Showing a student the proper golf grip is one thing, explaining the importance of getting out of their own way is another he explains.
This book has one mission: to bring awareness that you’re not who you "think" you are. This awareness will transform your life in such a way you would never have "thought" possible!
