Always Right Behind You: Parables & Poems of Love & Completion by Anima Pundeer and Arthur R. Ticknor

"Enlightenment is the realization of who you are. There are no questions or doubts left that require assurance or proof."

Looking for love is a path to spiritual completion, and looking for completion is a path to love. The authors chronicle their paths to ultimate wholeness of being and unconditional love with stories in prose and verse. The spiritual cultures of East and West meet and mingle here with these two great friends, one a descendant of Rajput warriors, the other of Plymouth Colony settlers. There is a path to Truth, beyond true and false, to Reality beyond real and virtual, to Self beyond self and other.

Always Right Behind You carries a compelling and inspirational message that evokes the seriousness a spiritual path deserves and requires, and leads the reader’s attention in the only direction where real truth and self-realization can be found—inward.

We asked some of our friends and authors of TAT Foundation Press books to take a look at the first chapter of this book ("Where to Begin") and provide their impressions for future readers.

Many of us struggle with how to move, how to find that first step within. What can I do to find my truth, my own path to understanding, a point of entry? This book is that point. Forged in friendship, and written from an intimate understanding of the human dilemma, Always Right Behind You is an open window on higher wisdom. A guidebook can help us, sometimes in joy, sometimes in sorrow, to take that first step into ourselves. Let this book help you in taking those first steps on the trail within.

~ Bob Fergeson, author of The Listening Attention; Dark Zen: A Guru on the Bayou; and contributing author of Beyond Mind, Beyond Death.

Whether this is the first book about the nature of human life and existence that you have come across or the thousandth, you’re in for a treat. Woven between the threads of Art and Anima’s friendship and spiritual journeys are snippets of wisdom, provocative questions and honest stories, all in the name of sharing this most profound and rewarding aspect of life. What a lovely book!

~ Tess Hughes, author of This Above All: A Journey of Self-Discovery.

I just finished the first chapter. "Where To Begin," from Anima’s and Art’s new book, Always Right Behind You. Well, I’ll begin by saying this pairing of writings by Anima Pundeer and Art Ticknor is proof that the Whole is greater than the sum of the parts! Anima’s forceful, heartfelt insights, and directness in telling the simple truths about how people live their lives, plus Art’s practicality, clarity, insight, depth of focus and precision in describing the paradoxes in how people live their lives, equals a compelling and inspirational message that evokes the seriousness a spiritual path deserves and requires, and leads the reader’s attention in the only direction where real truth and self-realization can be found—inward.

~ Bob Cergol, contributing author of Beyond Mind, Beyond Death and working on HOPE! Life’s Calling and the Quest for Identity.

And this review is from a friend who volunteered to edit the book for us:

This is a beautiful, honest, heartfelt and resonant collection, filled with many kinds of writing—essays, poems, interviews, stories, correspondences, and so much more—that traverse and transcend cultures, countries and centuries. No matter what kind of seeker you are, I am confident that you will find something here to pull you in and deepen your relationship with the Absolute. I found this book engrossing and had to constantly stop, re-read and mull over the truths that the authors point us toward with simplicity, humor, encouragement and caring. In Always Right Behind You, Art Ticknor and Anima Pundeer generously invite the reader to become part of their family—the timeless, universal family of seekers—and I for one am delighted to accept this invitation.

~ Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, author, poet, and the Betty and Gene McDavid Professor of Writing at the University of Houston Creative Writing Program. Her short story collection Arranged Marriage won an American Book Award in 1996, and two of her novels (The Mistress of Spices and Sister of My Heart), as well as a short story, The Word Love, were adapted into films.
