Find The Seeker!: The pathless path to fulfillment and happiness

By Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi and Clifford Stevens

Personal growth, Health & well-being, Psychology & philosophy | Paperback, eBook


"Find The Seeker!" is an incredible, flawless, and inspiring book that has the potential to help people change their lives for the better." The authors take us on an inner pilgrimage, compassionately picking us up where we are, whether beginners or longstanding seekers. Based on the wisdom and profound, first-hand experience of a modern-day Zen Master, as well as the teachings of enlightened ones throughout the ages, the book reboots our spiritual search in order to renew our limiting, thought-driven, and ego-dominated lives. Focusing on the spiritual dimension underlying Existence which all of us share, the book addresses people of all faiths who suffer, are unhappy and seek to lead more fulfilling lives. "Find the Seeker!" is not a wishy-washy, feel-good book offering a quick fix or esoteric porridge or pandering to those who want a spiritual baby rattle to rely on. Instead, it serves as a traveling companion and guide, enticing readers with the vision of what we really are — Absolute, eternal and unconditional Being, whole and divine — which can only be directly experienced and embodied. It serves as a powerful wake-up call for those who mistakenly believe in their being separate from Oneness, and living in a state of duality, reminding us that the Kingdom of God is really within us. Although written by a Zen Master and using some Zen stories, the focus is not on explaining Zen, its tenets or history. The book is in stark contrast to the majority of books which indulge in superficial descriptions or sayings and provide seemingly "precise" instructions, lists of goals or steps to take which trap us into continuing our dependency on intermediaries and religious institutions or our self-delusion of being less than we really are. Instead, accompanying the authors along the age-old pathless path we have always been on, we are called upon to empty ourselves and "drop" all our preconceptions and expectations, and the limited "self" which thinks it has a life of its own, as well as the heavy backpack with all our experiences and learnings. The book holds up a mirror to our worldly existence, suffering and the intricate workings of the ego, which entraps us in the never-ending soap opera and the roller-coaster of life’s ups and downs. We are led to live mindfully in the here-now, delve more deeply into ourselves and to be Self-reliant — enabling our inner guru to unfold our true nature so that we can abide in the one Self. In this way, seekers become finders, and we can become the Oneness we already are, enjoying the vibrant bliss and lightness of Being that is inherently ours. The book not only appeals to people interested in Zen, but spiritual seekers and people of all faiths and confessions, especially those who suffer, are unhappy, and still have unanswered questions about spirituality, God, and life. As a result, it targets readers searching for books on personal development, body, mind, and spirit, self-help, spirituality and religion, Buddhism, Zen or finding happiness.
