Old Words Made New
Manuel: Dear James, although it is difficult to express it with words, I really wanted to thank you for your book How to Attain Enlightenment. In the beginning I did not like the title, but now I understand why it is called that; it is really a manual for enlightenment. And for me, although I had read quite a bit, it was completely new, like music written by some old master where you find the same notes from any other music. I did not find many things very different from other things I have read, but the way it was written or, I don’t know what, made it something completely new, completely fresh and absolutely indispensable (again, not easy to express in words).
Also, although I did not understand when in your previous email you said that after reading your book, “Five or six people claimed that it finished their seeking,” now I can see how this can happen. In any case, I’m very happy. I will come to see you very soon in Berlin.
~ Thank you again, Manuel
