“All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violently opposed;
and Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860)
It’s been a while since I posted here, as many changes have happened over the past 12 years. I won’t go into the details, but suffice to say, our family has moved 5 times in that short timeframe.
All that while, my friends have been asking me to write the stories and events that they were a part of or witnessed back then. Last January in 2022, one of my good friends, Bill, made it his life’s effort to get me to finish the book at all costs.
Bill said he’s been waiting for ten years, and can’t wait any longer for me to get it done and share the life-changing ideas and principles I shared that completely changed his life and the lives of those who were there back then.
I’m here to announce that the book is done, as you can see from the cover above. The final touches are just about finished, and I tentatively set the release date for March 1, 2023. “You Are Source” will be available as a Hardcover, Paperback and eBook on Amazon.com and other outlets as I get them distributed.
What Readers are Saying About “You Are Source”
“Rarely do we get a chance to speak with our true essence. In the telling of the stories of those who have met Not-Mark and experienced themselves as source, the reader is allowed the opportunity to face the walls of their own illusions to become aware of the source within. ‘You are Source’ is a must read for every enlightenment seeking soul to realize they already know without knowing and are ‘be-ing’ in the unconditional, infinite now.”

“What if the spiritual teachers and texts got it wrong? What if enlightenment was something no one on Earth could achieve? What if the way to self-realization was so simple that we completely miss the mark with our retreats, fasts and even affirmations? Mark Naea, in his new book “You Are Source”, shares his conversations with people that inspire and show how effortlessly true awareness happens. But it isn’t without challenge, and it’s not what you might expect. “You Are Source” provides insight into how this rite of passage can happen on a personal level, as individuals. I highly encourage reading this book if you have been striving to attain your enlightenment, no matter where on the path you currently find yourself. Read it. And then read it again, as it continues to open a window to the wisdom that has been hidden and forgotten for a very long time.”

“This book is definitely a mind-bender. It asks you to “know” that you are Source and that this life is an illusion. You are Source, have always been Source, and are all that exists. The stories that Mark/ not-mark shares are conversations he has had with friends and situations where he is able to illustrate how this all works. These are all regular, everyday people and it’s very easy to identify with them, their lives, and the questions they ask when given this perspective. You can see them open up and align with this concept of being Source. In the end it’s simple, although it may not look simple in the beginning. Stop all doing and just Be.”

“What do you say about a book that changes the whole way that you look at things? Last year I had started finding out information that started the process. But then by the end of Mark’s book everything dropped into place. It was a light bulb moment! My whole outlook on everything has changed. It has been incredible how everything is flowing now. Thank you Mark and not-mark for bringing this book into existence. We are most grateful!”

I am observing my thoughts and feelings and kind of wondering: how can one review such a Book? I am reading it and I feel a sense of wonder and then I ask myself how can – I – do justice to that book as it is written by not-Mark…Source -when I still act as Monique and my words are little by comparison… I do not know what to say, Mark. I will go on with the Review -and maybe ”review” was only a reason to read your book and get going to awaken to Source…? I remember when I asked you to be a Guide for me: the answer you gave me. I was…astonished that God-Source would ask me to review this book. I was so happy that I was ”invited” by God, Source to do something like this !!! I feel touched remembering this. . Thank you for being there! I do love your book!

I thoroughly in-joyed reading “You Are Source”. The Author conveys his experience with the subject of “enlightenment” and guides the reader on a journey by sharing 18 true stories that enhance the readers’ inner-standing of this truly mysterious and cosmic topic. I was particularly moved by some of the stories. I found them thought-provoking and experienced a few “ah ha…” moments of clarity, in addition to some shedding of tears from my heart. Another aspect of the book that touched me was the quotes, some of them were phenomenal, as you will experience if you choose to read and journey with this book. I too have chased the ever-evading path of self-realisation and I wholeheartedly in-joyed the Authors’ simplicity in conveying his experience with this topic, which is fundamental to humanity presently. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an alternative perspective on this topic.

“Another title for this book could easily be the simplest path to enlightenment. And as in all things, the simplest a teacher can break down the subject for the student the faster the student can achieve mastery. Well, this is the holy grail of enlightenment books. A simple path that even a child can access. This is the self realization that Buddha laughed at when he saw the”light”.
But people twist themselves into knots trying to access it with the human mind when the human mind is “un-functionable” ( I like this word ). By this and as Mark points out, I mean the life we think and the mind we think are so real are nothing but an illusion. A pre-written script that the soul came to play with. A movie. As this book shows in very fascinating and fun to read detail – one only needs to SEE this and internalize it.
When one does – one sees the truth- and when one sees the truth – the game is over (Enlightenment) and the soul reigns by itself. The lights shines – the truth shines and one awakens. Now the trick though is to convince oneself of this truth. In this book Mark uses many stories that come at and chip away at the basis of what we think is reality. And that is the physical world and body. For me I am biased in a scientific manner of thought.
So for me I have to see things logically and that is a problem because there is no logic (at least comprehensible to the human brain) in true reality. Now Mark in this book was able to bring me to so many fundamental breaks in my imagined reality I actually started to warp time, created the appearance of other things with mere thought and more. For me the stories he tells are the suggestion, they are the start of well if he/they can do it, so can I.
I am ready for the movie to end. Now I operate solely from my soul. This book is a fun read. You will enjoy it immensely. Keep at it and like Buddha, you will have the last laugh. And all the fun – oh so much fun.”
