Historically not even one out of every one million humans have succeeded in bringing the impostor self and all suffering to a final end, thus remaining in the true Self whose nature is infinite eternal awareness love bliss. The reason so few humans have succeeded is because usually the impostor self does not want to end. The impostor self has thousands of strategies to prevent it from being exposed and being brought to an end. Some of those strategies appear in the form of thoughts, concepts, beliefs, ideas, opinions, distractions, detours, delays, desires, and feelings. The human mind has thousands of layers of self-deception. The Direct Means to Eternal Bliss exposes the impostor self, some of its preservation strategies and layers of self-deception. Detailed instructions are described for more than nine methods aimed at bringing the impostor self and all suffering to a final end, so that what remains is infinite eternal awareness love bliss. This is the seventh and most current edition of The Direct Means to Eternal Bliss. Many changes have been made to the book since the previous edition. The authors praise of the book has been removed. The sentences are no longer numbered. The type has been changed to Georgia 13. The book has a different cover. Many other changes have been made to the content of the book. The previous edition was published under the title The Most Direct Means to Eternal Bliss.

What really stands out for me is the love the author has for his reader. He really goes the distance to provide as much instruction and information as necessary to ensure the serious student achieves success. He wants Liberation to be available to all that desire freedom from suffering. In this regard, he makes it very clear that it is up to you, the reader, to put this information to use. He thoroughly covers the pitfalls and schemes the ego avails itself to, to thwart success and prevent its overthrow as the controller and decider. It is made clear that self honesty and the desire for freedom go hand in hand and are our main tools in our spiritual toolkit.
It is the authors own direct experience that makes this book the authoritative gem that it is. This is the map that worked for him. This is what he did to attain liberation in our day and age. What became possible for him, is now possible for the reader. Like all roadmaps of its kind, subsequent readings offer new insights. When combined with practice and aspiration, these insights increase in frequency and specificity. I have been made confident that I too will attain liberation in this lifetime.
What a blessing.
Michael gives us a map to follow. No teachers. No giving money to teachers. As Michael stated, the practice is the teacher. Seeing a physical teacher would be counter productive.
I read one one star review that claims Michael is delusional and a cult leader. How sad for that reviewer to be so controlled by ego. Michael accepts no money, never teaches in public, and his material can be gotten for free online and on you tube. No money grabs. No cult meetings. Just advice from one who has escaped ego and wants the same for all humanity.
Is Micheal enlightened? Read the book and make your own decision. But, whatever you decide, no one will ask you for your life savings, want you to panhandle at airports or drink poisoned koolaid. All you'll do is learn a wonderful meditation that will hopefully make you happier and improve your life.
The book offers unparalleled clarity on discerning the difference between the True Self and the imposter ego. It offers an experiential way to see directly that one's thoughts are leading one away from Truth while pretending to lead you toward the Truth. It reveals that awakening the Extremely Intense Desire for Liberation will solve every problem an aspirant could ever encounter and then guides one in awakening that desire. It then clarifies the practice of diving into the Heart as recommended by Ramana Maharshi and other Great Sages and gives clear instructions on how to do that. This alone makes this book extraordinarily valuable. The instructions on how to practice Self-Abidance from other Great Teachers have always been vague to me. Describing this practice as Awareness watching Awareness makes Self-Abidance immediately accessible. I truly believe this is one of the greatest Spiritual books ever written. In short, it provides everything a Truth Seeker needs and nothing that is not needed.
The more I practice the teachings in this book, the more I realize how fortunate I am to have come into contact with such a rare Jewel in a world full of false teachings.
Read this book many times very slowly. Contemplating each line. Put it into practice and dedicate yourself to the Truth that you discover. The author has compiled several books of quotes that support this book and help to increase one's clarity and devotion. However, I would read this one first, as it provides a much greater context for studying the other material.
