The author shares a selection of experiences and illuminations that tie together to form a pathway of spiritual evolution and ultimately draw the reader’s attention back to the essence of the Divine Self.

The ultimate lesson that the author brings back is that the Ultimate State of Being, that to which the mind and personal sense of self naturally surrenders to and dissolves into, is an unspeakable Eternal Love and a oneness of Identity with that.

The reader will learn about traps, temptations and fears as the mind ventures beyond the boundaries of the known on the great adventure of discovery. The reader is guided so as not to get caught up in phenomenal appearances or lesser goals and learns how to navigate fears and duality paradoxes.

The author shares the immense value that was gained from using substances, as well as enormous hardship that developed after ignoring signs to stop. These signposts are not to be ignored and this work sheds important light on that area.

This book is an invaluable map through traps, temptations and challenges. It shares both the upsides and downsides of using substances as well clearly showing the need to eventually transcend the use of substances, for the realization of what was tasted – the higher potentials of human consciousness.


There is a huge difference between taking consciousness expanding substances recreationally versus taking them with deep devotion and intention. The latter can lead to healing, illumination and merging in the Heart.

The path that uses psycho-active substances can also test the psychonaut to extreme levels and also cause drastic damage to the physical and/or energetic bodies. Thus shared information is invaluable to the explorer of the inner realms.
