Free Medicine:
Meditations on Nondual Awakening

Elias Amidon

Free Medicine is a collection of forty intimate meditations written by Sufi teacher Pir Elias Amidon. Whether describing a naked dive into a pond in the middle of the night, or a confrontation with soldiers in a Burmese temple, these meditations can serve as companions for those whose deepest desire is to know first-hand “the good news at the heart of reality.” Human, accessible, and tender, Free Medicine has the power to open us up in ways we never expected.

In the words of Keith Dowman, author of Natural Perfection, “Although it comes packaged in different languages, cultures and religions, deep mystical insight spirals around a single heart-core: here is Elias Amidon’s inspired Sufi reflection of that ineffable nondual reality.”

Amidon’s close connection with nature; his compassion for people in distress; his simple, clear observation of the mysteries of life and death; and his calm sense of humor combine in intriguing ways to reveal the uncaused happiness that is our essence. “Reading this book is a wonderful experience, full of brilliant insights, stories, images, lots of free medicine,” says Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi.

“This beautiful book, rich in accessible wisdom, captures the direct experience of love and awakening in the music of poetic prose.”
        
— Roger Housden, author of Dropping the Struggle: Seven Ways to Love the Life You Have

“It’s a sheer mystery to me how Pir Elias Amidon condenses so much profound wisdom into every sentence he writes. Free Medicine moves with a living, poetic potency that brings timeless, imperturbable transcendence into every moment of our personal lives. I wish I could keep turning its pages forever!”
        
— Peter Fenner, Ph.D., author of Radiant Mind and Natural Awakening

The Open Path:
Recognizing Nondual Awareness

Elias Amidon

Interest in nondual awareness as the essence of spiritual awakening, free from the obligations and cultural references of a particular religion, is rapidly expanding throughout the Western world. Those who have sought out and followed spiritual paths, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufism, Kabbalism, etc., have often found themselves coming up against a kind of ceiling in their longing for spiritual awakening. This can be a result of the religion’s cultural context or a belief system that may not see awakening as something within the reach of adherents. The Open Path is an excellent guide to the realization of the silent ground of all being and to the expression of that realization in the diverse conditions of our lives.

“Among the many mysteries explored here: spontaneous prayer, kindness, emptiness, starting from where you are, the freedom of the universe, awakening, is one that Elias Amidon barely mentions — friendship. Moving through this book feels to me like a continuously opening friendship.”
         — Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi

“This is one of the clearest and most practical books I have ever read on the subtleties of recognizing nondual awareness. Elias Amidon’s heartfelt clarity carries the signature of someone who has walked the journey himself and discovered there is no road.”
        — Roger Housden, author of Chasing Rumi

Seven Contemplations on Awakening
Pir Elias Amidon

 

(From the Preface) Each of the seven contemplations in this booklet presents a different facet of the jewel that sparkles as the light of awakening in our hearts. While there are many words and thoughts here, they all seek to serve this “light” that cannot be thought about or named.

The seven essays are entitled: The Open Path; The Art of Awakening; The Simple Fact of Being Aware Right Now; Direct Realization; Universal Revelation; The Mysticism of Music; and Following Beauty.

Dutch book

 

Een Open Pad:
Vertellingen Vanuit Non-Dual Bewustzijn

Pir Elias Amidon
Aleid Swierenga (translator)

This is a recent translation into Dutch of twenty-five short reflections originally appearing as “Notes from the Open Path.”

Een open pad bevat 25 korte reflecties en beschouwingen over alle aspecten van bewust leven: over ons levensdoel, over liefde, schoonheid en de bron van geluk, over bevrijding van angst en verstarring. Ze zijn geschreven door een veelzijdig en bewogen spiritueel leraar vanuit een sterke persoonlijke betrokkenheid bij alles wat op zijn pad komt.

De vertellingen verwijzen vaak naar mystieke teksten die toegang bieden tot non-duaal bewustzijn, een toegang die altijd bestaan heeft en in deze tijd door steeds meer mensen herontdekt wordt. Elk verhaal is een creatieve reflectie op hoe we volledig kunnen leven in het licht van het nu en spontaan en gevoelig kunnen ingaan wat er zich aandient in ons leven. Daarom verdient elk verhaal het om gelezen en herlezen te worden tot de kern die een diepe waarheid bevat zich vanzelf openbaart.
