Gina Lake is a wonderful author who hits the depths!

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.

I liked it because I could open it up anywhere and go from there.

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

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
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

After sitting down and really deeply thinking about what it was I was looking for in life; I came to the conclusion that it involved my relationship with the present moment. Life lead me to this book, and after reading it, it felt as if someone took the soul here off a leash. Words just can't express the freedom that came with the help of Gina's guidance. If you are looking for peace and fulfillment through truth; this book may help you... If you see through things and struggle with the way we try to paint things either black or white, read Gina's book Radical Happiness. If you see through the way we try to identify with this or that but sweep things under the rug that are true but unacceptable to the identification,, reading Gina's books may bring peaceful clarity to you. Check out her website Radical Happiness...

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
