“The Forgotten Self” is a product of a lifetime study of meditation, eastern philosophy and spiritual seeking. The author, a martial arts teacher and practitioner, found a need among his fellow students for a “how to” manual on the subject of meditation. This instructional paper became a chapter in this three-part book. “The Forgotten Self” deals with such topics as meditation, world religions, metaphysics and spirituality as it relates to today’s world. It is a guideline for the spiritual life-style as well as an instructional manual for unlocking those lost or unknown abilities latent in mankind as a species. Insightful and rewarding, The Forgotten Self” promises to leave the reader with a better understanding of reality, the universe and his part in it. Divided into three separate sections, this book leads the reader through a process of opening possibilities, providing answers for them and expanding awareness through practical “experiments”. The first part is “The Essence of Reality”. Here the author discusses such topics as modern society, individual and mass reality, and forgotten ancient wisdom. Asa Lennon believes there are abilities of mankind that have, in the whir of modern society, been anciently forgotten. He hopes to show the reader that man has reached the point in history where he teeters between existence and extinction –between civilization and chaos. It is the distancing of man from spirit that is at the heart of this problem. By returning to spirit, we can reclaim our heritage as keepers of the Earth and her treasures. The second part is “The Mystic Way –the Forgotten Path”. Here Lennon discusses the solutions to problems that plague mankind individually and en masse. This part outlines specific ways to enhance your life, society and the universe as products of the conscious awareness of the individual. Part three will open the reader’s awareness through the introduction of various spiritual and metaphysical concepts. Entitled “Remembering Yourself”, it not only provides mind-challenging possibilities, but actually describes experimental opportunities in the chapter 20 “The Human Laboratory”. Asa Lennon promises “the Forgotten Self” will embark the reader on a journey of increased awareness, spirituality and wonder as the forgotten self once again becomes known.
