The Listening Attention by Bob Fergeson achieves that which many books on mindfulness or meditation struggle with: escaping the “self” which springs forward to claim whatever experience arises.
No matter how subtle or astute our meditation may be, we will never realize nirvana by using yet another facet of samsara. A different level of seeing is needed, a pure awareness that is not itself a product of the world or mind, but primary to the reaction pattern we call ourselves. A looking which is attentive, yet not reactive. A listening which is not affected by circumstance and the constant changes of the mind.
It’s a book about becoming un-hypnotized, more spiritually awake.
