Album Notes
"For serious spiritual seeker, this is a must have book. I give 'Haunted Universe' a 10 out of 10 on our Infinity scale".
Scott Chapman, Enlightenment Dudes Reviews

"Imagine if Stephen King wrote about non-duality and you have some idea of what Haunted Universe is all about."
Michael Jeffreys, Spiritual Books Reviews

“I have never read anything as precise, clear, to the point and in your face as Haunted. It was THE book that helped pull away a lot of the wool that had been pulled over my eyes in regards to what I believed the whole enlightenment thing was all about.”
Margot Ridler

"This author designed his book to take you somewhere you have never been. He's offering you a rocket ride. You can't be told, he says; you have to go there. It's profound in its simplicity. Like the quietly-shared changed perspective that all astronauts embody when they return to Earth."
David Weimer, co-editor of the TAT Forum

"The utter purity and horrific beauty of the manifestation that is "Haunted Universe" has further clarified the reality that is the “no-self experience” like a fine diamond cutter purifying the light/diamond within itself. I am amazed Steven could bring forth such a project and I am very grateful to Jesús Olmo and Thomas Ligotti for coaxing the purified truth from 'Steven Norquist's goneness.' When I got to about page forty-five I had the very strong feeling this is a very rare gem, the kind that appears every thousand years or so, like Lao Tzu's little book he wrote so the Emperor's guards would let him disappear through the western wilderness gate at the Great Wall."

Powerful and Profound!
I've exposed myself again and again to 'Haunted Universe' re-reading it more times than I can count! But nothing comes close to the fulfillment of hearing it spoken by the author himself.
Norquist has a remarkable gift of communicating the pure essence of his words, in a way the enters deep within one's very being. The insight and perspective that comes through is like a laser beam that sears the mind! But at the same time it has the effect of being a mind-stopper as the words take over and crawl under your skin! The promise he originally made that we will be annihilated if we pursue the truth is further exemplified as he proves here that 'Haunted Universe' is great in any version, from the previous revised edition to what is now the audio CD.
The simplicity and directness of each word may be unsettling to some, but find myself grateful to Steven for sharing what I would call a highly personal rendition of what it means to be enlightened and the real cost of Awakening!

neutral rating
For your consideration-what motivated you to write and distribute your experience of enlightenment? Imperfection is not possible. Time is a misconception. Truth is ALWAYS subjective. The only absolute is there are no absolutes. Everything perceived has always been. We are time travelers. You......are dissipating. You are being redistributed. One does not learn the truth. One does not know the truth. One does not become the truth. One is the truth. To know a thing is to love a thing. Love and fear are the two seeds of human emotion, from love springs positive emotion. From fear springs negative emotion. Emotion my friend. What do you believe it is?

Haunted Truth
While listening, a relaxed state came down like a cloud covering the radiants of the visual world.
Suddenly from this state a dragon appears as a visualization a reflection on a dark mirror.
A shock results in a sensing whirl, being drawn down a black hole without resistance.
Knowing has no properties, there is nothing to know about this presence.
Yet this presence is known by the reflection of oppositional contrasts.

How can you be known whilst there isn't any idea to describe who is speaking?
There where moments there was no listener, so how is to know this listening?
All the while there is presence and yet this presence isn't some thing.
I think I can only say this much after listening to Haunted.
It was like taking a walk into .......
