The focus of her writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Gina's teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, and A Course in Miracles.

Format: Paperback
This is a good spiritual book. It has 99 short essays but it's not a "light weight" book. I liked it because I could open it up anywhere and go from there. It will make you think, read, and ponder again. Gina Lake has written a number of good spiritual books. I like this one especially because I can feel her open hearted kindness thru her guiding words. Some of the chapters and words that particularly struck me were:
#34 - An Opportunity to Love in which she writes: "Every moment is an opportunity to love." Wouldn't the world shift on its' axis if everyone followed that one sentence for a day!
#37 - Life Brings You What You Need: "If you said yes to everything that life brings instead of no, as the ego does, you wouldn't suffer." This reminds me of Byron Katie's comment "don't argue with reality..." Gina continues "say yes to whatever is happening" and "trust that that experience is good, not always easy perhaps, but always good." I am sure a lot of people can't go there yet, but it makes me think we don't have to judge good/bad, right/wrong...just BE and LET IT BE.
Gina wrote in #90 - "Thoughts create our unhappiness, not circumstances." This is a good reminder again to go deep within the ever present NOW moment. I'm reminded of what Mary-Margaret Moore says "If your thinking says this shouldn't be happening to me and this is hell on earth, then thinking makes it so." So...drop thoughts and judgements, and be an observer of what IS now.
Chapters 96 and 97 were worth the price of the book (Awakening and Wanting To Awaken. Really fine! Thank you, Gina Lake.

Format: Paperback
I have always found that attempts to live the life described by the Enlightened Masters to be fairly challenging. Most of us experience a more finite and progressive awakening process than what these Masters did, where the untamed mind and ego still plays a key role in our lives. Gina Lake's books are enormously powerful in helping one to understand the mind and ego in relation to consciousness, and progressively lessen the gap, so that we may live increasingly "enlightened" lives. I joke with my friends that her book, "Living In The Now..." is like Eckhart Tolle on steroids. It is enormously powerful and will assuredly have a favorable impact on your life. It is a must read for all those who are more interested in `Being', rather than simple intellectual understanding.

Format: Paperback
WOW. Gina Lake brings it again. This book is no-nonsense, practical pointers to what takes me out of the Now and how I can return to the Now. Not just a bunch of theory and concepts and pretty words, this book gives relatable examples to help me recognize how my conditioning, my mind, and my emotions take me out of life and leave me feeling alone and separate. This is a great book and great work. I have experienced the material in this book as transformational.--Lisa Holliday Lee

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jeff Bronson on December 28, 2010
Format: Paperback
Gina Lake has written another tour de force in this guidebook to embracing the present moment. She provides invaluable insights as to how to escape the lure of the ego through its multifarious tricks, such as fear, anger, and desire, which take our mind away from what we are engaged in and what is sustaining us Now. These fears and fantasies about the future and anger over perceived slights from the past sap our happiness and creative energy and deprive us from fully engaging with the Now, which is where our power resides. Gina brings her life experience as a talented psychological counselor and spiritual guide to this wonderful and essential guidebook. The language and concepts are easy to comprehend and give us much wisdom. One cannot fail to gain a wealth of practical insight that, if applied diligently to one's life, will make one much happier and appreciative of the Present Moment and facilitate the ability to anchor oneself in its richness. -Jeff Bronson

Format: Paperback
This book is extremely well written and enjoyable. You wouldn't think that more than a few paragraphs would be needed to explain the benefits of being present and the consequences of not being present. However, every sentence in this book provides insight and clarity I wouldn't have thought possible to convey with words. Plus she made some valuable additions that Eckhart Tolle didn't cover in his book The Power of Now. If you are a spiritual seeker, this is one you don't want to miss.

Format: Paperback
If you're like me and your opportunities to read come in stolen moments here and there, then Gina Lake's new format in Living in the Now is perfect for you! It doles out its perennial wisdom in bite-sized, easy-to-digest and assimilate pieces. Contrary to a popular misunderstanding, if waking up is your heart's desire, there is a lot to choose and commit to. This book can take you there, right to Truth's door, if you follow its simple and practical advice. In addition, Living in the Now unlocks the secret of how to truly live Awakeness. Once and for all, get direct and clear answers on topics, such as choice, feelings, life purpose, boredom, grief, and relationships, that sometimes get sidestepped in non-dual circles. If waking up in this lifetime is what you truly want, don't wait or hesitate, get this book now. You won't be able to put it down! --Laura Prue
