In author Ora Nadrich's stunning new book, Mindfulness and Mysticism, she brings together the practice of Mindfulness with a spiritual understanding of becoming one with a higher consciousness, which can be called God, a supreme being, source, unity consciousness, or oneness. Ora takes the reader into a non-religious experience of mysticism by giving them what she calls "sacred truths", which are universal principles, or divine laws every human being can live by if they choose to be present with the mystery of life. With Mindfulness as the ever-present guiding escort, the greater purpose is to become more present, mindful and aware. The reader will embark upon the path of mystical self-transformation and divine inspiration to awaken to one's highest potential by getting a better understanding of how being in the present moment can raise our states of consciousness so that awakening and self-realization can be achieved. Ora has done a masterful job at bringing the practice of Mindfulness into the real world where we all live that is undeniably user-friendly. She makes it clear that we don't have to be mystics to have a deep, authentic connection to the present moment while at the same time showing that, in truth, we already are mystics in training. Ora's book reveals this truth to us very beautifully, and invites us, if we are willing to mindfully step into the present moment with absolutely no hidden agenda wherein the mystery of a mystical life awaits our arrival. At a time when chaos in our culture is staggeringly upsetting, and millions are sensing there must be something 'more' but have no idea what it is, a book like Mindfulness and Mysticism paves a path beyond confusion. It speaks to the mind as well as to the heart, both explaining the mystical and leading us into it where we can realize a connection to something greater - the divine within us. Ora Nadrich provides a traveler's companion from the delusional maze of a desacralized world, to the calm and inner peace that Mindfulness can offer. Mindfulness and Mysticism is a beautiful road map to assist one's soul on the journey of awakening, self-discovery, and mystical illumination.
