Editorial Reviews

Review

"Every sentence provides insight and clarity I wouldn't have thought possible. Gina made some valuable additions that Eckhart Tolle didn't cover. If you are a spiritual seeker, this is one you don't want to miss." --J.B. Everett

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.

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
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
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

Format: Paperback
Having read several of Gina's books, I have to admit to being a big fan of hers and therefore unabashedly biased! LIVING IN THE NOW contains 99 2-3 page mini-chapters, each one filled with spiritual insights and truths that are truly transformative.

For example, I just got through reading chapter 49, which is called TREATS. It's about how we use food (drugs, shopping, etc.) as treats to get ourselves to feel better about doing something we don't want to do or as a way of rewarding ourselves. However, the problem, as Gina points out, is that by covering up our pain with these TREATS (band-aids), we never get to the root of the problem: there's a part of our life or ourselves that we don't like!

However, this "thing" that is in resistance is not us at all, but the conditioned ego. Only when you stop identifying with this energy inside you are you able to experience the pure spaciousness and love that you are.

Great stuff and another winner by Gina and Theo!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kathy Dannel Vitcak VINE VOICE on December 31, 2010
Format: Paperback
Living in the Now by Gina Lake is in a succinct, bit-at-a-time format that makes it perfect to keep by the bedside or on a coffee table. Pick it up, read a bit of wisdom, and put it down with no worries about losing your train of thought. These are capsules of wisdom to take as you would your vitamins. Yes, these are vitamins for your essence. These wisdom bites are geared toward helping us live in the Now, as you might have guessed from the title. It is exciting to read deep books and go to seminars and workshops, but living these practices in the real world of grumpy spouses, cars that break down, and people that are sometimes unkind makes it a bit tougher to practice them. Gina gives us little tidbits to help stay in the Now even when the world is dragging you into a place of NOT NOW, I WANT TO SCREAM and SLAP SOMEBODY! As always, I highly recommend anything written by Gina. This is no exception. Add it to your spiritual library and read and re-read this gem of a book.--Kathy Dannel Vitcak

Format: Paperback
Along with Eckhart Tolle, I consider Gina Lake to be a great inspiration to my life. I have read several of her books and they have helped me get over tough times. While many of us have so many things to worry about, like the economic crisis and where we are going, Gina teaches us that happiness and security are right within us. We just have to look at things differently. Living in the Now is her latest, and each chapter is two to three pages long. I like to read one right after I wake up in the morning. It takes about five minutes but it keeps me happy the rest of the day. I recommend that everyone else read it the same way, though you will be tempted to read more because each page is so inspirational. -Chris Heath
