I'm at a time in my life when I am considering many changes... and I'm in search of answers. I bought this book today and I read it today. I've always known that all of the answers to all of your questions are within you... I just didn't know how to get the answers. Or, more importantly, perhaps I didn't have the confidence to trust my own thoughts. I now have a vehicle... a system... that I will put into motion so that I can live my best life.

This book may not affect others or have any impact whatsoever to the next reader. For me, I received the message at the right time; when I needed it, and when I could receive it.

I had my doubts. I've tried meditation off and on before but never stuck to it. But Russ sold me on it. The book is a great, quick read, and I can't wait to put this into use.
Will you start dating super models like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
Will you become a millionaire like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
Will you somehow manage to reverse the aging process in a Benjamin Button-esque fashion like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
But it can make you happier, give you a clearer focus, and improve your mental as well as physical health.
So that works for me.

Let me start off with a little background. 1st off, I like Russell Simmons. I believe he is trying to spread peace and happiness to the world. I am one of his Twitter followers. I also do Yoga, and used to meditate , but for various reasons, I've stopped doing it. The reasons I stopped doing it are discussed in this book. "I don't have time., My house is never quiet. I'm just too tired to do it." That being said, I've read many books on Meditation and Buddhism. I never really got into Transcendental Meditation b/c it's very expensive. Anyway, enough about me. I bought this book on Kindle last night and was finished with it this morning. Its a very quick , easy read at around 209 pages. There are 5 Parts to this book. Why meditate, Why you think you can't meditate, The physical benefits of meditation, Living up to your potential, and How to meditate. Now perhaps because I've read all about meditation and its benefits, I found this book to be pretty wasteful. For me, there was no new info. There are pages talking about how it regulates your nervous system, it's good for high blood pressure, etc. Is it me, or do most people already know this? ,Also, he talks about how to actually meditate in the last chapter. Basically this is it. Sit down for 20 min and twice a day, internally chant "Rum." Yes, Rum. This is your mantra he's given you. Groundbreaking! There is absolutely nothing new in this book for anyone who has been meditating, this book is not for you. This is for someone who really knows absolutely nothing about meditating and it's many benefits. Russell also talks about getting into Transcendental Meditation, but really doesn't delve into it, which was disappointing.Read more ›

this book is a wonderful tool to help you learn how to meditate. it also simply and clearly explains the reason that every human on the planet should be mediating, for personal health and the health of humanity.
simmons style is conversational and extremely user friendly. he illustrates several of the concepts in the book using celebrity anecdotes as well as his own experiences. i have dabbled in mediation for a few years using pre-recorded guided meditations, but have never kept up a steady practice. i tried the meditation instructions in the book and found that the 20 minutes went by quicker than ever before. and i find that i am able to meditate more deeply without using a prerecorded guide.
i highly recommend this book to everyone.

I have been meditating regularly for more than 35 years and I have enjoyed the benefits since in my professional and personal life. For several years I practiced the TM and TM-Sidhi program and Chopra's Primordial Sound Meditation when Chopra left the TM movement. I tried some of the practices taught by the Self Realization Fellowship (Yogananda) but I had to stop because having a low heart rate and blood pressure these practices were too strong for my physiology. I also did the practices suggested by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Eckhart Tolle. A couple of years ago I accidently discovered the Rigpa Buddhist organization and started to practice what they teach. These have been by far the best practices for me.

I enjoyed reading this book by Simmons. What I found the most important is what he says about practicing every day at least twice for 20 minutes and doing also Yoga asanas. Few instructors include both practices but they should.

Asanas realign the body and the nervous system, clear energy obstacles, and detoxify the body by increasing the circulation of the lymphatic and blood fluids and by moving the organs.

It is interesting to comprehend the process of meditation intellectually but it has no value if it is not practiced.

What I did not like however in this book is the instruction to repeat the mantra. As soon as you do that, you bring your mind to the surface again. It is like forcing a thought. When you become conscious that you have a distracting thought (T) or emotion (E), that is when you grasp, analyze, judge or try to avert a T or E, then you should think the mantra once or put a light attention of your breathing, or a flower or another objet of support for few seconds. By doing this, your mind will leave the distracting T or E.
