Format: Paperback
We are all so busy trying to make the most out of each and everyday that it goes without saying that we miss out on so much in the process.

In the book EXPAND THIS MOMENT, author John Selby invites us to stop and take a moment to enjoy the greatness that is life, the right now. I found this to be a timely read seeing that I am guilty of trying to cram as much as I can within one 24 hour period. Though that is not going to stop overnight, it is important for us to realize the importance of the moment and not take it for granted.

Through messages and meditations that have been shown to work, the author reminds us to think of what is truly important and not allow the anxiety of tomorrow stop us from actually living and enjoying the thing we call life.

Written in a manner that is sure to encourage and inspire, EXPAND THIS MOMENT is just what a growing world needs to make sense of who we are and what is important.

I feel like I couldn't have found a more engaging book that covers meditation, which really does rewire the brain to live in a more positive way every day, and changes the body to naturally be more relaxed. You wouldn't think such simple statements and actions, replaced by your negative thoughts could change you so much ( there are very in depth explanations for them ). I admit I have anxiety and stress issues which tire me out, but putting this book to use every day, I really do feel like I have more energy since I don't waste it worrying, or trying so hard to prepare for the far future. Even in just the few days I have been reading it, I notice I am happier, just because my negative thought habits are fading away. I have read many books about meditation, anxiety, depression, adrenal exhaustion, hormonal imbalance, thyroid issues, and I believe this book can guide you me a balanced life mentally and physically, just as its doing for me.

Over the years I've read a lot about books that address meditation, but this title features the best and most practical discussion about that subject I've ever come across. There's also a lot of really great life advice in this work, plus the author's conversational, down-to-earth writing style is very engaging. Mr. Selby clearly comes across as a very authentic spiritual teacher whose heart is obviously in a very loving space. As such, I highly recommend "Expand This Moment" as a spiritual growth resource.

I have learned dozens of methods of meditations, simple to the very complex and always find the problem is getting into a routine of actuallly doing the meditation so it's a habit.
This book starts off like "nothing new" then, about page 46 I realize, "Wow". This is simple, makes sense and doable. I agree with his technique and philosophy backing it up.
Try it.

I am savoring the read. This book is one I want to linger over. There are twelve focus phrases and, including the intro and final words, I count 14 chapters. The twelve focus phrases integrate spiritual practices from all around the world and I like the perspectives offered for each one. One issue I have with these types of books, wherein there is a step by step process to be remembered and followed, once the book is read and shelved, the processes are forgotten. Now, there's a phone app for that! I can always access the focus phrases, individually or as a group. The beauty of this meditation is that it is quick, accessible and realistic for any busy person. I enjoyed reading each page. I liked the authors style and the anecdotes. If you are looking for personal growth, this is a great, great choice. Highly recommend.
