This classic book is full of useful tips on how to live a more conscious life and to be an engaged and aware member of the universal community.

"While we have humility and pride enough to act on the knowledge that we exist in an infinite harmony, that we are neither greater nor lesser than any others, we can enjoy exquisite spiritual wealth and pleasures. When you love yourself, you are in truth expanding in love into many other things. And the more loving you are, the more loving the beings within and around you. On all levels we are mutually dependent vibrations. Play a happy tune and happy dancers will join your trip." - From The Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment

It's true that Golas has had many LSD trips and is writing out of them. You may wish to discount what he says because of that.
However:
Just read it, and if it resonates, cool. If not, cool too. Favorite quote: "if you can learn to love hell, you will be in heaven." If this sounds crazy, don't buy the book. If it intrigues you, you may be one of the crazy persons who can benefit from it.

What a book! Golas does a wonderful job here getting straight to the point and does so in an elegant way that stimulates the mind. He discusses remarkably keen insights on life by using examples which are clever and wise. He uses words to make an artist masterpiece in Lazy Man. If you're looking for advice and suggestions on how to go about living a life full of happiness, this is the guy to go to.
He elegantly makes you realize that no one is better than anyone else and that we are all merely vibrations living in a world full of other vibrations. Although this is a common idea, he brings up points that are very sophisticated and leave you thinking, "why couldn't I think about that?" It is as if he knows what you've been thinking about your whole life, but takes you to the next step to get you over the hump and into the land of bliss by taking you to those few extra thoughts you never thought of.
If you like books that stimulate your mind and change your perspective on things, this is your guy. Lazy Man's Guide will not let you down. In fact, it will pick you up and keep you up for many years to come.

Much of what he is speaking here ... is just now, in this late 7 years, starting to come up (and still not all), in the words of others. And i have read, and listened, and been through, many many many kind of 'teachings'... from Alan Watts, to ... Carlos
Castanheda, José Silva, Robert Monroe ... to some Tibetan masters, Osho, J.Krishnamurti, Douglas Harding, Ram Dass, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, Eckhart Tolle, Adyashanti, Jeff Foster, Bentinho Massaro ... also Anita Moorjani, Wendy Kennedy and some other channelers ...
It's all out here, in a clear, simple and very much compact form! ... in less then 100 pages! and since 1971! ...
It is not at all a product of 'Hippies Culture' - it is all here, already, the best, the most absolute jewel ... for who ever wants to see it and recognize it. ♡♡♡♡♡!

I read this book to search for a way to self-compassion and expanded heart. More than any psychological books that tells you to love yourself and sit with your feelings, this book gave me what i want convincigly.

A hippie classic that still rings true. A thin book that takes forever to get through because each page is so deep and thought provoking. It has the be read page by page with a meditation after each page. If you don't get hung up on the Hippie slang and just pay attention to the message you won't be disappointed.

This is the book that I've given away to at least 100 individuals over the last 20 years. Of the countless books I've read on the subject of enlightenment/higher consciousness (ok, so I'm a slow learner), this little book captures all of the essentials without obfuscation, in a scant 80 pages. There was a time when I read it cover-to-cover each and every day, and I've never been so clear, expanded, loving and happy (so why did I stop, you ask? What fun is life on Earth if we can't be dense and contracted from time-to-time? <G>). I corresponded with Thaddeus for awhile back in the early '70s, and I was very impressed by his no-B/S attitude to personal growth, and the fact that he eschewed followers and self-agrandizement.

The Guide is perhaps the most honest book I've ever read and a great and loving gift to us all. Get past the '60s lingo and you have a trusted--and tested--companion for life.

I love the perspective of ease in this book..which reveals the mind's tendency to make mountains out of mole-hills. It clarifies what is needed in the moment...a sense of relaxation in order to become centralized/simplified so that awareness can freely expand within what is truly, empty space. This book has simply underscored something which has been blooming....slowly...fit-fully :)....for years and years....and I'm grateful for it. I'm stubborn and indulgent...often a moron lol!...and yet this book brings me home every time.
I have read a good many books in my day ... In my opinion this is one of the greatest books ever written. Timeless.
