Newly Discovered Douglas Harding Video

Douglas Harding on creativity, in a discussion with Micheal Adams and Kriben Pillay, South Africa, 1994.

As I See It now available

Mary Blight - Thursday, October 11, 2018

The book As I See It is now available in hard cover and Kindle versions.

This book is a collection of essays by Douglas Harding. The articles in this book, arranged in chronological order, span the period of Harding’s life (1909–2007) from the early 1940s to the late 1990s. And though they are the sound of a needle stuck on one subject—the changeless subject of our true identity—the only Subject!—they reveal something of the wide repertoire Harding composed, inspired by that single, silent, mysterious, nearer-than near, nothing-that-is-everything. These writings also demonstrate how Harding’s understanding developed over many years as he explored in different contexts the meaning of what he saw himself to be, in contrast to what others made of him.

Hard copy and kindle versions can be found here:

Journey to the Centre of the Youniverse

Sam Blight - Friday, June 22, 2018
A story by Douglas Harding.

Written in the 1970s, now published for the first time. Available on Amazon

"I'm a traveller from a very long way off. It's not that I'm lost. But it's a long story...

"And then, suddenly, from the side pocket of his long overcoat, he produced that fabulous thing. It came out small, a mere bud which immediately o pened out in his hand like a flower. He set it up on the table between us. It was a flower with curious and gorgeous petals, an onion with bright painted skins and a crystal core, a ship-a-sailing with all eight spinnakers bellying in the wind. He called it his Deep Map, in contrast to the flat maps people use, and said that without it we wouldn't follow his adventures at all. He explained that it showed clearly where he came from and was going to, and the scenes of his adventures with the terrible Wormwolf. It revealed a living Space-dweller the regular astronomers hadn't discovered yet, and gave glimpses into the lands of the Gnomes and the Goblins and the Elves. And in fact it was a record of his great Space Probe, his journey to the very Centre of the world. He called this strange chart of his Youniverse, spelt Y o u n i v e r s e; and he said it was his Magic Tool Chest, or Wizard's Bag of Tricks. Armed with this device, why anyone could ..."

And so begins a story that takes you all the way to the centre of the Youniverse. It is a story that transforms you in the process and reveals the greatest of all treasures, hidden in plain sight.

This is a dramatic tale, a wild dream, at times a nightmare, at times a hilarious and subversive satire. It involves a quest, a monster and a shape-shifting hero, strange characters and dangerous goings-on, and an end that is a beginning--the tightest corner of Hell opening out into the widest smile of Heaven, the darkest of nights turning into the early morn ing freshness of the world. Are you prepared to wrestle with the angel till dawn? Only those that go the whole way will find the Whole.

Open to the Source

Sam Blight - Friday, June 22, 2018
“Seeing Who I am is a strangely physical experience. It is like an energy; it is like an empowering, a physical tone, an uplift, a rootedness, courage, a faring forth into the world. It is enlivening.” Douglas Harding

Douglas Harding (1909–2007), author of On Having No Head, saw Who he really was in 1943. He then spent the rest of his long life sharing the experience and the meaning of Who we really are.

Harding’s unique method of awakening to the Source, of seeing your True Self, appeals first and foremost to your own unmediated experience of yourself. It is original, effective, direct, and practical.

The quotations in Open to the Source are selected by Richard Lang, a close friend of Harding’s for more than forty-five years. The artfully designed arrangement of beautiful photographs and inspiring words invite the reader to see the Source and to live from the Source.
Open this book whenever the spirit moves you and be inspired!
