The word Unconscious is key to this book. As such, one see's this book written close to two decades ago, has no reviews, and sells used for half the cost of shipping. The author Harman has written other powerful books with major heavyweight authors who admire him (e.g. Margret Wheatley). The reality is, people do not take serious their ability to have any impact on their Unconsious thoughts, or that if they could, why bother.
I bought this book years ago, and it did not stick. After reading the book Power of Now, this book has found its mark with me. This is a book that fundamentally is about how to create a mindset that will enable you to not only accomplish more, but become fulfilled with a sense of your own potential.
I would not buy this book if you are skeptical about one's own Unconsiousness, that exploring that area is too illusive to try.
The content about Rene Descartes alone is worth the reading. He uses his story to tell us what we can do today. It is in Chapter 3 "Looking Where the Light Is" subsection "The Man Who Dreamed Up Science". I had no idea how Rene had accomplished what he did, but this book tells the reader the man knew.Read more ›
The book gives an account of many historical incidents of creative inspiration that writers, composers and scientists believed originated somewhere beyond their physical body. There are guidelines for practices and mind-sets that encourage this state of higher consciousness. First, the authors tell us, we need to be open to new ideas and experiences and we need to be in a sufficiently relaxed state of mind to explore what these new ideas might mean; when we are tense, our creative mind shuts down. Secondly, we need confidence in our own abilities to process these data and put them into the proper perspective, taking counsel from others but not allowing ourselves to be biased or prejudiced by any one opinion.
Examples of remote viewing and precognition are described in this context. The interpretation of such psychic phenomena in terms of quantum physics is dealt with briefly to illustrate the poverty of reductionism, but this book focuses on practical steps we can all take to cultivate creative thinking through development of the unconscious. The unconscious is continually programmed by our experiences. If we focus on the destructive and negative, occupy our thoughts with envy, resentment or hatred, our whole physical being is adversely affected and we will be more prone to illness from infections and depression.Read more ›
And apart from being efective in teaching is really, really, well written and interesting. I've felt like I wanted to study (not only to read) the whole book and I have started taking notes from it.
