Enlightenment In Our Time explores the timeless topic of spiritual reality in contemporary terms. Informed by many wisdom traditions and notable teachers, it is eclectic and non-sectarian. With inquiry, humor, and potent quotes, it inspires the reader, then provides suggestions for meditation, loving, living, and dying.
Enlightenment In Our Time @

This book is a new look at the timeless topic of enlightenment, the "perennial wisdom" and ultimate goal of all spiritual paths. It resulted from thirty years of study and meetings with teachers from a wide variety of wisdom traditions, including Sufi, Hindu, Buddhist, shamanistic and "new age." Although informed by these traditions, the book is nonsectarian and contemporary in tone. It is a psycho-spiritual poetic odyssey. The intended audience is today's discriminating truth seekers. The tone is eclectic and adventurous. The book is designed to be experiential. It is not only about enlightenment, it is meant to be enlightening. Instead of chapters, it has short sections, framed by provocative quotes from a wide variety of inspired voices, both known and anonymous.

Topics include:

v The Meta-History Of Enlightenment

v Scientific Mysticism

v Symptoms Of Enlightenment

v Original Awareness & Transpersonal Reality

v Great Realizations & Ordinary Miracles

v The Forest & The Trees: Giving Up Duality

v The Self & Its Disappearance

v Relative & Absolute Reality

v What About Pain?

v Ways Of Transformation

v Does The Internet Have Buddha Nature?

v Your Psychic Energy Centers

v To Heal the Soul

v Sacred Sexuality

v Why Death Is Not A Problem

v Real Comments From Real Friends



At this very moment, stuck onto a whirling little orb, hooked into an average-looking solar system on the outer spiral of the diaphanous cloud of dusty radiance we call the Milky Way, you are hurtling through space at an unimaginably enormous velocity.

Yet you feel that you are stationary... that the world is always "under" you, the sky is the very definition of "up." The vaulted exploding heavens appear a motionless canopy. We call this non-sense "common sense".

You look up at the stars and assume that they are all "there" at once, namely "now." Yet each star/image streaming into your eyes comes from a different time, spanning numerous billions of years. Not only are you literally looking into the past, but you are actually beholding a multitude of pasts in one enormous starry vista. Many of the celestial bodies you believe to be "there" are "now" long dead and gone. Our beloved, ever-so-reliable night sky, by which we have navigated for thousands of years, is really an antique apparition. At the same time, since the light of billions of "newer" stars has yet to reach us, there is no way of seeing what's really there!

Professional Reviews

Enlightement is a vital subject, and your book has the mark of one who knows whereof he speaks. You also have a wonderfully clear writing style, which makes for a truly enjoyable read. Well done! - Jim Dreaver, author of The Way of Harmony

"Lonny has written a simple book of living wisdom. In the short chapters awaiting you, he presents enlightenment in many of its aspects and applications, and he does so in a practical way.
If enlightenment is a kingly banquet, Lonny doesn't want you to stand outside looking at it through a window; he wants you to come inside and taste the glorious feast. So he offers advice - short, simple, practices and ideas - to make the theory real for you personally. He invites you to partake and be spiritually nourished." --from the Foreward, by John White, Editor, /What Is Enlightenment?

"I love it. Simple spiritual truths put so succinctly."
- Meria Heller, "THE MERIA HELLER SHOW " (
