A mistake made by almost everyone who studies the Direct Path Teachings is that instead of using the teachings as practice instructions they become lost in spiritual concepts. Most of those people never correct that mistake and at the end of their physical life they are still lost in a maze of concepts without having realized the True Self. A journey that never goes beyond thought is not a journey to Self Realization. In this book Seven Sages teach how to avoid getting lost in concepts. The type is Palatino 16 for crisp clear easy reading. This book contains all of the quotes in Chapter (Step) One from the book The Seven Steps to Awakening. How Not to Get Lost in Concepts is book Six in the Self Realization Series. One purpose of the Self Realization Series is to put just one category of quotes into a small book that has the advantage of making it easier to focus, meditate on, grasp and have insight into just one subject at a time. That makes the approach simple, easier and less complicated. The idea is to stay focused on just one subject until you have received everything you need to receive from that one subject.
