An excellent down to earth true story about one man's search for enlightenment. Very funny in places and an easy read with a good story that drives the narrative forward.
I found inner happiness, freedom, by listening to each word this man spoke. I had to work hard, to leave all my believes, convictions, morality, wants and needs behind, but I did it, and by that, you can do it. Thanks to this great man, I have found what I was looking for my whole life without knowing that I was looking, and what I was looking for. Hope you can still make sense out of what I am trying to say. Although I have heard Ozay's story at first hand, the book is very entertaining. It took me on a journey on which I experienced strong emotions, it made me laugh out loud and giggle, while reading about all the mischieve Ozay got up to as a young boy. Ozay relates all his stories to spiritual awareness. We can all relate to his story no matter how and where we grew up. While I was shopping, I became aware that I was longing to return home. I was longing to know what was going to happen next upon Ozay's journey, and by that on my own journey. No matter what you do, or do not do, this book will make something happen within you, as it did in me.
