"We attempt to feel free by disobeying social orders, but in doing so, we miss the fact that liberation from limitations must, before anything else, take place within the consciousness. The distress is an inner distress, and therefore, the solution must take place deep within."

Many current books on eastern spirituality and meditation encourage readers and seekers to pursue the "here and now," without illustrating exactly how mindfulness and psychic integration with the universe may be achieved. Filling this void, Tubali offers a valuable guide for those seeking to move beyond the contraction of the mind and its resultant suffering, toward a state of total expansion—an authentic presence of unity, openness, wholeness, and freedom.

The manuscript first establishes a firm foundation by explaining the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of the "White Light Expansion Method." Rather impressively, Tubali’s syncretic approach is well-researched and inclusive, drawing from familiar spiritual thinkers, such as Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Byron Katie, Victor Frankl, and Jiddu Krishnamurti, as well as a host of traditions from the Dutch school of holographic therapy to ancient Yogic practices. By artfully knitting together these theories, Tubali is able to offer a powerful alternative to the psychoanalytic approach to mental health, which arguably constricts the mind by encouraging one to "forever wallow in the psychological layers of our self" instead of promoting a "liberated state of being."

Intended for both practical and therapeutic applications, the book offers simple self-guided meditations, useful diagrams, and vivid testimonials. These testimonials are especially helpful in allowing the reader to readily comprehend the more abstract aspects of the method, such as the process of expanding an emotion beyond its perceived limits. Altogether, this book is recommended to anyone on a spiritual journey for a greater sense of fulfillment and purpose. The foundational principles and techniques are simple enough for a layman to understand and compelling enough for even the most enlightened practitioner.
