Author(s): J. P. Sears
How to Be Ultra Spiritual takes the reader on a satirical journey of growing beyond their lowly place of just being spiritual, to
a place of spiritual superiority and status known as Ultra Spirituality. As JP affirms the message that it's not very spiritual to
just be "spiritual" anymore, the reader is coached along-in comedic fashion-to become more spiritual. His satire cuts open
and exposes the troubling issues being widely neglected in today's spirituality, while the humor creates a nonthreatening
levity that allows readers to truly consider how the issues may be playing a negative role in their lives. Chapter topics include
meditation, working with "energy," yoga, conscious relationships, veganism, finding a guru, intuition, and more.
-JP is a brilliant wit, and moreover, seems to have one-upped me in the 'grace race' by being the most spiritual guy around. I'm not entirely sure that's a good thing, but--oh well. I'm still the humblest, by far. We need more Dharma stand up and trickster wisdom in this Buddhist ghetto, where there's so much old fashioned sittin' and bowin' going down. I myself am getting tired of the new Now; it's kinda getting old, no? Anyway, this book is a genuine delight and a real contribution; it will help anyone who reads it see thru self-deception and various kinds of illusion while having a laugh, too. Lightening up while enlightening up, together. I don't know a better way to travel this marvelous, mysterious, magical Path.- --Lama Surya Das -Learning to laugh on our path may be the most potent spiritual medicine there is, and I believe there's no better guide to help us do just that than my dear friend, JP Sears. This whole game of spirituality, awakening, 'Namaste' this, and 'love and light' that is often taken way too seriously--so why not read this book, lighten up, and laugh at the fact that we're all a little 'Ultra Spiritual' in our own way?- --Chris Grosso, author of Indie Spiritualist and Everything Mind -This book is simply brilliant and made me laugh out loud on every page. JP also sneaks in his trademark wisdom and insights. We humans are such a ridiculous species--I mean, ask any animal, mineral, or plant--and yet no one points this out more humorously than Mr. Sears. Don't miss the joy of reading this book.- --Paul S. Dolman -Spirituality is a funny thing. By the mere act of personally identifying ourselves as 'spiritual, ' we instantly drop out of spirituality into ego. JP Sears sheds a critical and humorous light on New Age attempts to grasp, speak of, and take ownership of that which is ungraspable, unspeakable and uncontainable. You'll find yourself laughing, thinking, and laughing some more!- --Elliott Hulse -I still remember the first time a friend sent me JP's 'Ultra Spiritual' video--I laughed my ass off! I sent it to everyone I know. I share How to Be Ultra Spiritual with my students because I want them to live more fully connected to the power of their hearts--not society's hyper-spiritualized B.S. of the egos. This book is loaded with laugh-out-loud humor, but it still intelligently exposes the spiritual delusions that many people trick themselves into adopting. Finally someone has intelligently shined the light; JP provides a clever and upfront riposte. Enjoy his perceptive underlying insights while you laugh beyond all understanding.- --Tony Robbins -How to Be Ultra Spiritual bridges the wisdom of bearded Jesus with the playfulness of baby Jesus.- --Spiritual Scholar -His Enlightenedness JP is funnier than the law of karma!- --The Universe -I got really attached to this book!- --Buddha -His Enlightenedness JP is the honey badger of the spiritual kingdom!- --Krishna -Finally someone has intelligently shined the light; JP provides a clever and upfront riposte. Enjoy his perceptive underlying insights while you laugh beyond all understanding.- --Tony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within
