To read this book is to encounter the essence of our lives and our everyday concerns. Toni Packer shines her gentle light on fear, compassion, impermanence, attraction, prejudice, enlightenment, and much more as she invites us into our own light of discovery. As she says, "In truth we are not separate from each other, or from the world, from the whole earth, the sun or moon or billions of stars, not separate from the entire universe. Listening silently in silent wonderment, without knowing anything, there is just one mysteriously palpitating aliveness."
"The Light of Discovery is clear wisdom, accessible to people of all walks of life. Toni Packer's words should be sipped like a good wine. "—Arthur Braverman, author of Mud and Water: A Collection of Talks by Zen Master Bassui
