    One thought on “When Fear Falls Away

    1. Janet

      I so wanted to love this. I actually cried reading the intro. But in the end I just couldn't get into her story. I wanted the key to peace, and dammit, she never really revealed it! Guess I'll have to continue to search for it on my own. :)

      Okay, this is a case where I don't go crazy praising the writing. Frankly, the writing is pretty dreadful but KUDOS to Jan Frazier for speaking on the topic of awakening. She is telling us what so few can tell us now--which is how is awakening done. What is this elusive "enlightenment thing?" Jan goes in there and tells us how she found it. I read it cover to cover and keep it on my desk as reference.

    3. Lorena

      This is book that I come back to again and again. I love reading it. I feel peaceful and calm after reading it. I definitely recommend it.

    4. July Wolfe

      Most helpful description I've read of the awakening process, unique terms and down-to-earth applications. Will read this many more times and will quote it often.

    5. Barbara Lynn-Davis

      I first learned of this book several years ago in yoga class. My teacher, Michelle, read excerpts from it at the end of class sometimes. The title really intrigued me -- what a concept, what a desire, that we could live without fear -- but the book got a little weird for me, with this almost cult worship of this Indian guru woman, I forgot her name. I lost interest at that point, it was just too out there for me.

    6. Christine

      When I read this book several years ago, it invited me back to questions I had closed long before about the nature of spirit and the capacities of our minds. Frazier offers a chronological account of her experience of what might commonly be called "enlightenment," but might more aptly be called Waking Up. This is what it feels like, at least for one person. It turns out that hearing it described is at least as helpful as all the talks, teachings, techniques, and meditation manuals I've seen. It [...]

      Frazier's account of her personal release of fear is a touching and empowering gift. I must say that I did not find her voice in the piece to be as strong as that of the woman whose story she was telling, though that does not diminish the beauty of the experience she shares. While I can celebrate her obvious triumph, I just didn't feel the excitement of her process coming through in her words. Frazier is a skilled writer, though her Editor has not done her art justice in this book.

    8. Paul

      Jan is one of the few writers who attempts to convey the sense of what it's like to be be liberated from the usual bonds of fear, worry, resentment, mistrust. Reading it gives me a wonderful taste of that freedom, and reminds me that it really is possible for me to live that way. She's a delicious writer too - very tasty sentences!

    9. Lisa

      It will take rereading to absorb this book. I appreciate the journal organization to describe remarkable events in the author's life. I think it's important that she is extending herself to share what should be accessible to all of humans. I get that words just can't do that, as she says, and am grateful that she's given it her best try. I hope there will be more.

    10. Jack Purcell

      The book is a journal, of sorts, about an awakening. As Krishnamurti and others have stressed, she clarifies the extent to which fear dictates many people's lives. I've read it twice now. And am likely to read it a third time in the near future.

    11. Molly

      What I needed to be reading right now. Great description of the process of awakening but too repetitive with inconsistent writing. Definitely will re-read parts of it again in the future.
