“Man did not weave the web of life - he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” This enlightening quote from Native American chief Seattle not only leads off Naked Being, it also sets the tone for what readers should expect within the tome. Throughout the pages of his profound new volume, author J.M. Harrison shares invaluable insights and eye-opening truths, all in an effort to promote higher thought and foster a greater awareness of our individual and collective significance in the universe. In so doing, he invites the reader to “un-learn” years of misleading preconceptions and flawed logic that continue to entrap us under myriad layers of misguided effort and false expectations.
Broken down in more than 450 separate parcels of wisdom, the topics of Naked Being cover the full spectrum of human emotion and experience, spanning everything from love to pain to meditation to death. As one may infer from the title, the purpose of Harrison’s opus is to strip the reader of any lingering facades, eventually shifting his/her focus to the common, essential core that lies within us all. By helping to undo the damage of personal and societal conditioning, Naked Being opens the mind and heart to a world of promising new possibilities, providing an all-important first step on the journey to ultimate Self-realization.
More than just a typical, garden variety self-help book, Naked Being is a crucial guide to emotional and spiritual well-being. Kudos to Harrison for crafting such a much-needed tool for the betterment of his fellow man.
