Jan the writer, and also a Belgian physician.... never found himself and therefore concluded that he is a No Body, because he only searched in his head. (Declaring that you are a phantom or nobody is declaring that your are something).
Also, Jan's beliefs (even though he denies having beliefs) refuse to accept personal responsbility for thoughts and actions.
His case is because consciousness is living through him, he has no choice over his actions or power over his immediate surroundings.
Jan is pretty black and white..............So, this book not worth YOUR MONEY !!!!!
Jan seems to write as best he can from a non-duel perspective, the words he uses are confusing and often sound contradictory!!!!!!!!!
My advise, if the non-dual perspective appeals to you, save your money and buy either Loe Hartongs book, Awakening to the Dream, any of Tony Parsons works, or Nathan Gill's new book Already awake.......
All are strictly non-dual and are much clearer, in my opinion, than the books written by J Kersschot, a Belgian doctor.
For a book about non-dualism, it has a strangely two-pronged flavor.
First, it is making the general and expected points: No need to do anything, you are already enlightened (except that you don't exist and enlightenment is meaningless to begin with), etc.
Second, it has a definite under-edge of Non-Dual community infighting.
At times, it has a strangely catty, insider tone.
I feel it is written not so much for the general person just trying to figure things out, but for a specific narrow sub-readership of people who are very experienced shoppers in the spiritual supermarket, even or especially people who've been around the non-dual track a few times.
These are the people that the author wants to reach, and get them to 'stop seeking !!!!
Though of course, even 'stop seeking' is "doing" something, or having a kind of program, and therefore unacceptable.
Except that of course EVERYTHING is acceptable because it is all illusory anyway.
I say that this author (and his interviews ) are on the far edge of current non-dual thought in that other stars like Byron Katie still offer a kind of goal (cessation of mental suffering) and a sort of problem-solving method (4 questions) to advance that program.
EVERYTHING is equally FAKE (or real, but in any case meaningless) and there's absolutely NOTHING to be done about it... except the reader is still left with the feeling that s/he as a regular gal/guy hasn't quite 'got it' and ... you still don't really understand (that there's NOTHING to UNDERSTAND, you DORK....) ... that's the flavor of it.
However, this tough-man macho version of neo-advaita makes constant use of analogies like "All the sand castles on a beach appear separate but since they are actually all made of sand there's no difference among them and they are all the same thing - namely, sand". Or similar images of water, characters in a movie on the screen all being made of the light projected from the booth, etc.
But the authors would say that my small mind (which doesn't exist) is just playing stupid small-mind games.
