Every now and then a book comes along which can transform our lives and lift us to an entirely new level of consciousness. Journey into Now is such a book.
With perfect precision, Leonard Jacobson guides the reader along a path of awakening which leads to liberation from the pain and limitations of the past into the joyful and unlimited world of Now. This book reveals, in the simplest way, how to still the mind and become fully present and awake in the truth of life.
As an essential part of his guidance into the present moment, the author penetrates deeply into the mystery of our existence. He reveals the hidden keys to enlightenment. He provides insight into the deepest questions, which we must face if we are to become fundamentally free. He speaks of the soul’s journey in a way that brings the whole of life into perspective and transforms problems and difficulties into opportunities for awakening.
Perhaps the most important aspect of this book is the author’s unique insight into the nature of the mind and ego. He describes in detail how the ego’s resistance to Presence is the primary obstacle to awakening and how we can overcome that resistance in a simple and effective way.
Each page of this book reveals a part of the mystery. There are hidden keys to awakening on every page. It is like a road map home.
Leonard Jacobson provides answers to questions that must eventually be addressed by those genuinely seeking to awaken.
How do we heal and complete the past, so that we can be more available to the present? What are the primary obstacles to awakening? What is the role of healing, forgiveness, and repentance in awakening? How do we free ourselves from repressed emotions which can be so harmful to our health, our relationships and our enjoyment of life? How do we free ourselves from the tyranny of the ego? What are the hidden keys to enlightenment? Is there a Master key? What is the soul’s journey? What are the soul’s lessons? Are past lives real? Is it possible to open into the direct experience of God and the Eternal Now? How do we live consciously in an unconscious world?
To be present enhances every aspect of life. It empowers us and frees us from the pain and limitations of the past and anxiety about the future.
When we are fundamentally present, we live without judgment, fear, and desire. We live in a state of acceptance. We live as love in the world. The illusion of separation has dissolved. We live with a strong sense of peace and a continuing awareness of the Oneness of all things.
