This is a profound and radical work that points to the fundamental freedom that is independent of path, process, effort, or belief. In these pages, the reader is taken on a journey - one that clearly reveals that there is nothing to become, nor any specific goal to attain. Rather, what is shown is how a deep-rooted misperception of our true identity has caused us to live in 'apparent' pain and fear.
Tony Parsons is an esteemed teacher who regularly shares this 'open secret' of spiritual awakening with people throughout the world. His straightforward and highly effective message of awakening to life "as it is", is delivered with an impersonal authority that emanates from absolute clarity.
Through the direct perception of "what is, as it is", Tony Parsons offers the reader a very practical and accessible approach to authentic spiritual realisation. His invitation is to live life from a wholly different perspective - one centred in the infinite awareness of one's true Self.
"Tony Parsons invites us all to awaken from the dream of individuality and expose the paradox of spiritual practice. It's an invitation that is both simple and profound. As It Is is a bestseller!" - Ricky James, Manager, Watkins Bookstore, Ltd., London
"As it Is is sublime. It is one of the most concise and precise descriptions of Presence that I have ever read. Thank you." - Catherine Ingram, author of Passionate Presence
"Sometimes we read a book that stands head and shoulders above others-stands alone. Reading As It Is can mean the end of the struggle. Living it is Liberation." - Kindred Spirit Magazine
"As It Is is an essential work on the fundamental nature of the individual. Tony Parsons clearly reveals the way to letting go of life's nonessentials and simply living spontaneously, in the awareness of our perfect and harmonious nature.
Written in a remarkably simple manner, each word is spoken from the immediate and radical perception of 'what is' - a perception available to each one of us, right now." - Mira Decoux
About the author:
Tony Parsons was born in London 1933. At the age of twenty, he spontaneously awoke to the rediscovery of his true nature. Throughout the years, he shared this "open secret" with like-minded friends. Only since 1996, when Tony began to communicate from the nature of his experience through writings, did people from all over the world begin to deeply resonate with the message he shares.
Tony brings a deep maturity and a lifetime of spiritual understanding to his talks and published works. The clarity and completely natural manner in which he writes and speaks about living in the unlimited awareness of Presence is refreshingly authentic. Meeting and residentials with Tony Parsons take place regularly in the UK and internationally.
