CAT’S BOOK REVIEW:

“The best advice as a reader I have received was, “never judge a book by its cover.” Personally, I can say this is true about, “Find The Seeker!: The pathless path to fulfillment and happiness.”

Find The Seeker!, written by Author’s Clifford Stevens and Master Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi, who is, by the way, one of the few living Zen Masters of our generation, have poured their wisdom and souls into this book. Simply well written, you will take a path of freedom, deep inner peace, and a journey of inspiration and enlightenment while reading this book. It doesn’t read as a traditional new age, or Zen type read, it truly will uplift you no matter who or what you believe to be a “power greater than oneself.”
I will note, I maintain life in recovery from addiction. This book can also serve as a type of “life workbook” for those who want to live a full deep meaningful live while maintaining recovery.

It can be read as a guide with the advice and unique techniques shared inside as part of our recovery work and look “within oneself” in changing those thinking errors and character defects. That is why my favorite chapters I got the most from was “The Ego and Non- Thinking.” Both author’s knowledge of knowing there are plenty of books out there about meditation and “how to’s” is why this book was exceptionally written and much different than those books.

This read inspires and motivates one to go out in the world and enjoy living life now and be present, be it travel, exploring, or through life adventures. It will guide you to a fulfilling and happy destination and well-balanced living for a lifetime. It can be adapted to any faith or as we recovery people say, to whomever our “Higher Power” happens to be.

That is just some of what I have learned reading this fantastic book and much more!

I highly suggest it for everyone, and it deserves my 5-star rating.

EDITORIAL REVIEW:

Praise for Find the Seeker!

Find the Seeker! is fresh as spring grass and refreshing as a clear stream. The teachings in this book refuse to be confined to a spiritual checklist or manual of meditative techniques. Instead, the authors, again and again, challenge readers to return to the vibrant truth of original nature. Going beyond optimistic self-help and nihilistic despair, Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi and Clifford Stevens remind us of how wonderful it is to let go of grasping and taste the vividness of direct experience.”

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

 

Gert Beirer, who was born in Austria in 1945, studied Zen, meditation, Kung-Fu, Qi Gong, and acupuncture in Asia. He was given the name Genro (“Origin of Joy”) Xuan Lou, Laoshi (Laoshi = “Spiritual Master”) by Zen Master Tetsuo Kiichi Nagaya Roshi. Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi was named Zen (Chan) Master by the Abbot and Grand Master Kun Kong at the Lingyin Temple (Shakyamuni Buddhism) in Hangzhou, with whom he studied 11 years, by Abbot and Zen Master Shi Chan Ming in Wuhan, Province Hubei, China, and was also named Shifu or “Spiritual Teacher” in 2009 by Shi Xue Feng, Abbot of the Ding Shan Temple in Germany.

After returning to Europe, Genro spent decades as a therapist and business consultant and has been heading the Qi Gong Master School in Austria for many years, practicing in accordance with the Wuhan-Yangsheng style.

Genro Laoshi has lectured at universities, appeared on TV, held seminars on a variety of spiritual and self-help topics, taught Qi Gong courses and published articles and books on meditation, Zen, motivation and communication, storytelling, body-reading, sexual Kung-Fu, autohypnosis and many more topics.

.

Clifford Stevens (Ki-ichi) was born in the United States. His career included stints as a teacher, journalist, PR manager, and translator. He has studied Qi Gong, Zen and meditation with Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi for many years.

His meditation-imparted experiences and the Dharma transmission from Genro have qualified him to be a teacher of Zen. He humbly reveals his deep insights and awareness of the spiritual cosmos as he wanders along the pathless path with his Zen Master.

 

 

WHY Readers Will Enjoy This Book:

 

Find the Seeker! – based on first-hand experience as well as the tried and tested
the wisdom of a modern-day Master and enlightened ones throughout the ages,
serves as a traveling companion and guide, taking readers on an inner pilgrimage
to reboot their spiritual search and renew their limiting, thought-driven and
ego-dominated lives.

• The strength of the book is its focus on the spiritual dimension underlying Existence
which all people share, and its picking people up where they are in a compassionate
and understandable manner. At the same time, it is not a wishy-washy
quick fix or esoteric porridge pandering to those who want a spiritual baby rattle.
.
• The book is in stark contrast to the majority of books which indulge in superficial
descriptions or sayings and provide seemingly “precise” instructions, lists of goals
or steps to take which entrap people into continuing their dependency on intermediaries
and religious institutions, or prolonging the self-delusion of being less
than they really are. It does not slowly work its way to a conclusion but continually
repeats key messages to hammer away at our conventional beliefs.
.
• The authors aim to act as facilitators, hoping it will fall on fertile ground. Speaking
with authority and a sense of urgency, and continuously hammering away at our
conventional belief systems, they hope to transform the seemingly complicated
path of so many seekers into the realization that we already are what we are
looking for.
