The Leap
“Life always gives you what you need, and right now it has given you this book to use as a guide or companion through challenging times. It contains a great deal of prescious wisdom, expressed in the straightforward, clear, and down-to-earth language that Steve Taylor is so good at.”
—Eckhart Tolle, in his foreword for
The Leap: The Psychology of Spiritual Awakening
We are pleased to share the release of The Leap, the latest addition to the Eckhart Tolle Edition imprint with New World Library, which features books personally selected by Eckhart for publication.
What does it mean to be enlightened or spiritually awakened? In The Leap, Steve Taylor shows that this state is much more common than is generally believed. He shows that ordinary people — from all walks of life — can and do regularly “wake up” to a more intense reality, even if they know nothing about spiritual practices and paths.
Steve shares, “I used to think that spiritual awakening was out of the ordinary — an extremely rare state that is practically impossible to attain, unless you’re prepared to become a hermit and spend decades meditating for hours a day in solitude and silence. . . . I was wrong. This book describes how I came to learn that spiritual awakening is far from uncommon. It describes how I came to learn that it doesn’t just happen to Eastern sages but to seemingly ordinary people in all walks of life. It describes how, after a number of encounters with ordinary awakened people, I began to study spiritual awakening as a psychologist.”
Wakefulness is a more expansive and harmonious state of being that can be cultivated or that can arise accidentally. It may also be a process we are undergoing collectively. Drawing on his years of research as a psychologist and on his own experiences, Taylor provides what is perhaps the clearest psychological study of the state of wakefulness ever published. Above all, he reminds us that it is our most natural state — accessible to us all, anytime, anyplace.
