Three Steps to Enlightenment by Gary Rutz

In a thirty year study of what was, what is and what shall be, Gary Rutz discovered the secrets to the universe, enlightenment and everlasting happiness. It is not so amazing really, because Rutz discovered what we all have within us. He listened to his own inner voice and trusted that the answers and were within him. After reading thousands of pages of history, philosophy, and critical thought, Rutz used a reductionist method to remove unnecessary complexity. Through accessible language and style, Rutz presents his discoveries in an easy to understand way.

Editor review: 

“Truth is like an exercise bike: it just sits in the corner, useless until you get on and ride it”. So starts Gary Rutz’s warm and conversational guide to his personal philosophy. The core message is about self empowerment: “You’re in charge. Whether you decide to feel oppressed by the world around us or whether to feel empowered by it”.
The writing is a little convoluted and some of the philosophical constructs were not explained clearly enough for me. However, overall, I liked the book.

Everyone needs to read this book

I read this about 3 years ago and began slowly integrating those 3 simple steps into my life. It was one of those "aha" moments for me. I can't thank you enough for sharing this priceless information in an easy to read format. This was truly the beginning of scraping myself up off the floor and turning my whole life around. I can say for the most part that I finally have peace in my life. This is my second favorite book of all time!

Interesting material, but ...

Interesting material. But it still seems very ego-based. Quotes from scientists; how about quotes from enlightened/awakened teachers? For example: Adyashanti, Jed McKenna, Byron Katie John Sherman, Gangaji, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, etc. You are what you seek. Find out what you truly are, before, during, after, and beyond all thought. When you do, you will be done.

Basically, this is about enlightenment!

Very readable

I loved the simple conversational language used to write this book. I also agree wholeheartedly with the content as I have been experiencing these truths myself. As to whether these three things will lead to enlightenment is something to be discovered on an individual basis, but at the very least it will definitely prepare the mind for it.

My only complaint was that the Kindle version had quite a few typos. Other than that, awesome short little book. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a different perspective of what this life is all about.

I really liked this,

I really liked this, especially the way you began by bringing out the tradition of empirical investigation in deciding what feels right.

Cool.

Much thanks

thank you very much for your comment.

If you would like to talk about it more, or ask any questions, please let me know.

what we know is a handful of what we dont know

The more you love and have place for love and always find place for others, life is on a continuous flow. Once you get attached with something materialistic then things start moving apart.., we may yearn for many things but it must be in its own place, life should be enjoyed.., sometimes the gypsies and nomads are the best guides to show what enlightenment is, they dont teach.., we need to learn

great book!
