This book is a practical guide to accessing an awakened state, offering a spiritual practice, "Instant Presence", that is based on Enza Vita's own profound encounter with enlightenment. She gets to the heart of what is wrong with so much of our spiritual strivings: if a practice is bound to a goal then that is an obstacle, because in reality there is no goal to be achieved. What we are looking for is here now and has always been. Using a helpful question-and-answer format that highlights ways of embracing her "no-practice practice", Enza guides readers in searching for the individual "I" and realizing that this "I" does not exist. She explains the meaning of real meditation, which lies in letting go of control rather than in seeking to control the experience, and offers "presence pause" exercises and many hints and tips for letting your thoughts be and accessing true awareness. Her book shows that sudden awakening is an ever-present possibility, as well as revealing the power and seduction of our thoughts and emotions that keep us held in narrow self-definitions and create endless suffering. Enza seeks always to support readers' spiritual journey from their initial search through the integration of spiritual enlightenment into everyday life, showing that true awakening is not a faraway dream or mere intellectual knowledge but the direct realization of our true nature that is always available here and now.
