'The land of truth is a pathless land', said Krishnamurti. An earlier Zen Buddhist saying states, 'You show the fool the moon, and he is looking at your finger'. But then, the still more ancient Chinese 'Book of Tao' starts with the sentences, 'The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The unnameable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things'. And yet after such an ultimate warning, it goes on for many pages trying to point to that most elusive and fundamental Tao. Wittgenstein, on the other hand, ends his 'Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus' with the sentence 'What one cannot speak about, one must keep silent'. 'Sinclair' is among those rare books which not only try to point to that proverbial moon, Tao or pathlessness, but try in our so thoroughly down-to-earth times to make us aware of the very existence of that ultimate ineffability and its fundamental and overriding importance in our lives. Consciousness Coaching is a new approach, and unlike traditional authoritarian teachings, it is a way to free us from the conditionings, limitations, and the variety of handicaps we usually end up with. It does so without making big waves, yet with grave consequences. A famous ancient precedent is the Socratic method, which does not deliver statements that must be accepted, but instead, establishes series of appropriate enquiries which may lead to enlightenment. Freedom has two variants: 'freedom from' and 'freedom'. The former is much easier to acquire than the latter, since it can happen by mere accident or good luck, or by sheer mindless violence. However, rather without exception, 'freedom from' is a reaction and still binds us in consciousness to the former binding condition. Thus, once attained, its potential benefits can only be achieved by sustained efforts. Where there is effort, there is no freedom. This hard fact is often lost upon those who so ardently devote themselves to one or another venture to become 'free from'. Consciousness Coaching, therefore, places a significant importance on making us not only 'free from' the usual countless variety of handicaps we end up with even before properly starting adult life, but also strives to equip us with the yet more valuable and absolutely indispensable 'freedom'. Without which there is no, and cannot be any true liberation. ... 'Sinclair' presents an intimate personal life account which is most vivid and rather mercilessly honest in its surprisingly relevant insights. And it takes the reader through a fascinating and captivating succession of events and sudden turns of events, described in a crisp and poignant style which makes the book into an irresistible page-turner. ... fortunately, the hero in 'Sinclair', like all heroes in good stories, manages to survive it all. And there is a whole lot to survive and learn from. By the time one reaches the end of the book, both the hero and the reader may indeed acquire a far better realization of Krishnamurti's classic warning that the land of truth is a pathless land. The hero brings to mind the famous Renaissance adventures of Baron von Munchausen. Riding his horse, the baron accidentally gets bogged down in some marsh where he is on the verge of getting drowned. Being endlessly resourceful, however, he simply grabs his own wig with one hand and keeps firmly pulling it upwards, while at the same time holding his horse tightly between his knees. And lo and behold he gets out of that rather messy situation. Our hero in 'Sinclair' performs just about the same sort of feats. ... And when the book 'Sinclair' ends, the hero is still not completely out of the woods,...However, his record more than reassures us that he will no doubt make it in the end...each and every one of us can do with someone's adroit finger pointing to the moon...'Sinclair' does just that. --Professor Elemer Rosinger, University of Pretoria

This is a book about warriorship and I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the tempo, the language style and the chutzpah of the man, Sinclair. It is a personal journey towards self-awareness, personal integrity and joy. --Odyssey Magazine book review, South Africa
THE TRUE STORY OF ONE MAN’S SEARCH FOR ENLIGHTENMENT COMMITTED TO CAUSE A REVOLUTION IN CONSCIOUSNESS TO MAKE LOVE A WORLDWIDE REALITY. “Packed with invaluable wisdom and real life lessons, SINCLAIR has got everything to become the bible of life for a new generation. And best of all, it’s coming from an authentic source.” - Darshita Mehta-Gillies, London, UK “Sinclair” plunges the reader into the battles, disasters and triumphs of a man determined to liberate himself from the illusions of the matrix and find enlightenment, inside and outside. To the young Sinclair, in demand as an international top model and actor, entrepreneurial success, the ‘Outer Million’ comes easily. Yet his spirit is restless and discontented, pushing him forcefully forward to reach for the ‘Inner Million’. After a horrific car crash where he touched death, he gives up everything, his career, his marriage and his possessions, and embarks on a world-wide decade-long spiritual journey. Sinclair acquires the power to unite within the ever-battling opposites of love and money, sex and god, commitment and freedom. And just as he starts to touch thousands of people through teaching and mentoring, he is ousted from his homeland by the religious authorities. Cast out, misunderstood and in doubt Sinclair retreats to an island for an in-depth sabbatical. Will he start all over again? Can he learn the lessons life is trying to teach him? “The wisdom and principles of Sinclair have shed serious light on the hidden secrets of my life. This book is a must.” - Michele McLean, Johannesburg, Miss Universe 1992 Ranging through the financial hubs of commerce and glamour to the ashrams of India and the solitude of the Himalayas, Sinclair strikes a resounding chord of hope, encouragement and direction. “Sinclair takes you on a journey that you will discover to be your own.
