Enlightenment

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Enlightenment does not belong in Heaven or Nirvana. Brilliant lands have no need of lamps. This often-dark world does. We each have a heart. Thus, we each hold a key that opens the door to enlightenment. There is no other key to search our pockets for. More

About Jim Riley

From the film, National Treasure: "There are 20 million books in the Library of Congress, and they all say the same thing: 'Listen to Riley!’"

In college I was Editor of the literary magazine and received a national award. A classically trained musician as well, I play and record Renaissance music.

As a musician I love beautiful sounds. As a writer I cherish truth. As a romantic I pine for the beloved. Guiding all my life is this insight: Reason tells me who I am. Love shows me why I am.

What readers say:

"...seamless and intelligent...perspectives I've never thought of before.”

"...flows like poetry…breathtaking."

"...reminds me of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali... While the author recognizes limits to the written word, his use of the medium is beautiful.”

"...a book to keep by your bedside...more wisdom and common sense than Solomon!"

Reviews

Review by: Nancy Hand on Dec. 01, 2010 :
The book, in format, reminds me of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. There are short, numbered paragraphs, "verses", succinctly stating a point that can be thought about for a lifetime. While the author recognizes limits to the written word, his use of the medium is beautiful.
