Format: Paperback
This book saved my life , and now having completed many of a similar nature and two years down the road I am still as enthused ( of Paul Jones masterpiece ) as I was when I first read it .This book absolutely frees you from past conscious or unconscious detrimental patterns of behavior (i.e -- so many poor behavioral and habitual characteristics dropped ) It has totally changed my perspective on myself and others , giving me back the person i once was and in the process it has vastly improved the quality of my life and my families.

I got immediate relief from this book as i revisited past experiences , learned forgiveness , conquered the voices inside , found peace and for the first time in my life felt at ease with myself and all around me.The need to change others , gone , the need to be be right all the time , gone , the need to control each situation , gone , exploding into a rage at the smallest incident , gone . The list goes on and on .In its place just peace and understanding , a constant smile plastered across my heart and when situations do arise relief is close at hand.

Thank you Paul Jones

Cutting a niche in the present moment awareness market must have seemed unlikely but nevertheless.... A true 'how-to' book.

Naturally an outline map of the journey traveled is needed but Jones presents one that eschews some of the more fuzzy and poetic metaphors by building a simple blueprint aided by many short quotes and numerous simple but clear diagrams. And almost uniquely in this genre outlines some exercises that have reputedly come from his career in NLP and Hypnosis, to help us to get to where we seek to be. no stone is left unturned it seems as he discusses direction of attention, values, time perception, the ego and it's overcoming and many more interconnected issues.

Some of the techniques had obvious and immediate results whereas some others (and the work as a whole) promises to tap quickly but less immediately into the pre-conscious processes that set our perceptions. I'll have to get back to you on that one, but as a whole a hugely ambitious attempt: in the opening pages the author sates his intention of not only defining enlightenment itself but also creating a road map there. In doing so he defines a particular type of enlightenment called `practical enlightenment' this largely seems to be an attempt to get around the problem of having the quest for enlightenment becoming an obstacle to enlightenment itself. It appears we are all enlightened already and we have only to clear away what obscures this realization. And one of these obscurations, we are told, is the striving for `absolute enlightenment' - of the type that leads to `extremism, dogma and the ascetic.

really enjoyed this book - it's an excellent blend of psychology and spirituality, very clearly written. It looks at what it really means to live in the present, and the factors which stop us doing so. It makes it clear that most of us spend practically our whole lives out of the present. True living only really takes place in the present, so in that sense most people spend their whole lives not living. This books aims to correct this. I recommend it for anyone who wishes to live more fully.

I read this book more than a year ago, (unfortunately haven't been able to read it completely again but I think I will need to read it more than 3 times in my life). This is is the type of book that is a breakthrough in the world of ideas. Not only that, but like with good pieces of art (which is obviously not the intention of the author) it changes as you read it in different times of your life. This book is not intended to save people, but it changed how I understood things for good, as Einstein once said, a mind that has been expanded, can never shrink back to its original size. Now that is my personal experience, but in short the book... smart, witty, practical, enlightened (practically enlightened for that matter). If you are looking for a smart read, this is it. If you are looking for a completely different perspective in which you can unlock the power of undivided attention to YOUR life in a practical and authentical way dealing with the reality of how things actually are, that is learning to tolerate discomfort and dealing with things in what I believe is the most authentical way possible (which according to Paul Jones is some level of "practical authenticity", i.e. not an absolute concept but rather a practical that fits in real life and society) , this is the book you want. The book starts explaining about the importance of "the present moment" in the sense that it is what you actually experience regardless of your current interpretation of the world at a given time, that is, your mind fleeing to a different position. Then it teaches you ways of learning how to stay focused on the present moment with some behavioral techniques, and finally the book is a very smart discussion of the reasons why we dissociate so much from the present moment and learn how to avoid it.Read more ›
