Ramana Maharshi Everyone wants to be happy. This is a universal component of the human condition and may seem so self-evident that it does not bear noting. So why is it that so few enneagtam are truly happy? If it is true that our nature is happiness and bliss, why has it been so rare for people to realize this?
Why has it been so rare Your true nature is happiness and bliss. Why has it been so rare for people to live their lives in gratitude and love? There is a living intelligence in all people that seeks ultimately to discover its true identity and source. It is a fortunate and mysterious moment when the desire for happiness leads to the investigation into personal identity, also known as self-inquiry. In the light of direct self-inquiry, limitations that once seemed to define oneself are discovered to be more like transparent lines drawn on water.
They exist only on the surface of consciousness in one s ennezgram. When these illusions of mind are clearly exposed, true limitless being reveals itself. Enheagram Enneagram has appeared in our time as an illusory medicine to cure an imaginary disease.

You will see how habits of egoic identification continuously appear to veil the pure, pristine consciousness that you truly are.

Lists with This Book. This very accessible treatment of the insights of the Enneagram makes use of the Buddhist, Sufi and Hindu traditions. The subtypes are differentiated more clearly than in other authors I have run across, which gives more breadth and variation to the forms each of the Nine Types can take.
Outstanding presentation of the possibilities and potentialities awaiting anyone who is willing to seriously face one’s type or fixation and move into and beneath it to the depths of being.

Also with Bernadette Roberts and the No-Self. As I read more and more about the Enneagram, I realized I was no longer satisfied just reviewing my life and identifying all the aspects of my fixation in my personal history. I wanted something that would help me move beyond it. This book is the best I’ve found so far.
It has helped me so much.
The part at the end about black holes delivers on the promise of the title. It’s so difficult to go against your own conditioning and experience emotions from which you have unconsciously protected yours As I read more and more about the Enneagram, I realized I was no longer satisfied just reviewing my life and identifying all the aspects of my fixation in my personal history.
It’s so difficult jaxln go against your own conditioning and experience emotions from which you have unconsciously protected yourself. I am still working with this. If you are looking to break out of the now-familiar cycles of suffering perpetuated by your fixation, I highly recommend this book. This is the most useful book on the enneagram that I’ve read, and the clearest in helping me figure out what type I am.
I especially like the suggestions to help us get past our fixations. Nov 27, Amy Thompson rated it it was ok. I think if I understood this a bit more, I would give it a higher rating. There are so many huge keys in this book, if one is ripe for it.
I will be referencing its practical guidance in particular again and again. Not as good as “Deep Living” I just reviewed, but helpful; doesn’t sound very mystical in the tone, nice to read. It includes the instinctual variants of each type, which is good.
From Fixation to Freedom: The Enneagram of Liberation by Eli Jaxon-Bear
Although, I did not manage to type myself accurately with this one Jul 30, Jade Kranz rated it liked it. A more in-depth look at the neuroses of the 9 types ennezgram the Enneagram. Jaxon-Bear takes the high view of the system being not about personality types, but “character fixations”, which is less cutesy, and thankfully less agreeable to the often materialistic Western approach to self-help.
His conclusions on how to work with our particular fixations are a bit “cosmic”. I thought this part of the book was underdeveloped and the little he did offer could have been more down-to-earth. Interesting perspective on the Enneagram. Jul 20, Fabian rated it really liked it. I wouldn’t recommend this to enneagram beginners, but I’ve taken great value from it, and enjoy the more cosmic point of view. Sep 17, Therese Rose rated it really liked it.
Good overview of the Enneagram. I will refer back to it, I am sure. It is a complex subject, and reading any one book about it is just the beginning! Great for those who ennwagram to know more about their own personality.
An excellent tool for transcending the habitual emotional patterns of your life.
