Product Description


Having studied Ilie Cioara's inspired book, I am quite convinced that if its wonderfully wise contents are read diligently, and its prescribed practise is persistenly followed, then it will gradually and gracefully lead the fortunate reader to his or her own Self Realisation. (Alan Jacobs, Poet, Writer and President of the Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK)

About the Author

Ilie Cioara was an enlightened mystic who lived in Eastern Europe. His writing describes the experience of meditation and enlightenment, as well as the practice of Self-knowing using all-encompassing Attention. Like Ramana Maharshi, Krishnamurti, Eckhart Tolle, his is a simple message of discovering our inner divine nature through the silence of the mind.

The Wondrous Poet April 4 2012
By Fred Davis, Awakening Clarity Now - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ilie Cioara was a quiet blessing who came and went almost without notice. His impact, however, is just beginning to be felt, and will be long remembered. First in Silence of the Mind and now with The Wondrous Journey, translator and editor Petrica Verdes brings us Ilie's mystic vision, which remains as deep and clear as space itself. The poems here are written from a place of spiritual maturity; the words are those of a master seer in his prime. It's beautiful work, poem after poem, crisp and piercing.

The prose commentary that follows each poem is both illuminating and penetrating. These are less the words of distant and lofty spiritual master on some far-flung plane than they are the whispered observations and suggestions of a Friend. One can only impatiently look forward to the coming volumes.

The "Psychological Void" between Words and Thoughts


Ilie Ciora

In the pause between two spoken words,
Created by reason,
Lies the "emptiness",
A direct encounter.

When words are rare
You encounter this gap;
Connected words
Create the thought process.

The "psychological void" between thoughts
is beyond meaning;
A silent meeting,
Through total melting.

In this state
There is true comprehension;
This space expands,
Defined by Light.

In "emptiness," the Sacred affirms itself,
the "ego" is shattered;
In this moment
A new man appears - a creative being.

In humble simplicity,
Through "emptiness" we become Eternity;
A natural fulfillment,
Uniting us with the Whole.

Format: Paperback
The Wondrous Journey by the gifted Self Realised Mystic and Poet Ilie Ciora, is indeed a precious gift for all those embarking on the great spiritual adventure of endeavouring to wake up from the dread sleep of samsara.This distinguished author broadly follows the teachings of the great Sage, Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, and also has affinities with Eckhart Tolle and J.Krishnamurti. His brief Essays covering the main topics of Non Dualism such as Love, Happiness, and the Evolution of Consciousness are written in an attractive poetic style with clarity, and wisdom. They are obviously based on experience rather than scholastic book knowledge. I would strongly recommend this precious book to all those aspirants who are interested in and working for Self Realisation. Alan Jacobs President Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK

The Wondrous Journey is Just That! May 20 2012
By Rosemary Cochran - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Wondrous Journey into the Depth of our Being is just that. Ilie Cioara's book expresses the Depth of our Being in a beautifully poetic way, that actually takes the awareness of the reader on a journey into the deepest innermost nature of the Self. Like a rock thrown into a deep pond, this book is a potent vehicle that plummets the awareness deep down, beneath the thoughts and emotions and agitation that usually make up human experience, into the Silent Depths of our inner most nature. There, we become acquainted with a Peace that is beyond understanding, a Peace that is the essence of all Life. This book does not require intellectual understanding of any philosophy. The poetry and prose that lies within the pages of this book have the potency to give the reader the direct experience of what many mystics refer to with words such as Being, Atman, Englightenment, Non-dual Experience, Non-Conceptual Reality, etc. Ilie Coara has been compared to the works of Rumi, Kabir, Hafiz, and Kahlil Gibran. As the world discovers his writings, many hearts will open up to the truth of who and what they are....This book is an absolute must-read!

As far as personal spiritual growth, this is the truest, humblest book I have ever read.
It is the simplest way one's pure mind, essence and soul can be expressed and it is easy to understand.
I am most confident that The Wondrous Journey into the Depth of our Being will remain a true guidance for a very long time. Such precious Gift to humanity.

It is a Wondrous Journey !! May 23 2012
By Bishop Lee Petersen,OFJ - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Wondrous Journey is a Masterpiece of Self Discovery.
Simply read these poems as if they are your very own & you will discover the Truth that is Life.
Even to write this review diminishes the Power I found in reading or rather doing this book.It does not require effort,just awareness.
If you have ever Questioned who you are or What Life is ,these poems will lead you to your answer.
