Review

With The Art of Uncertainty, readers can chart a course for learning how to live in the "I don't know" while maintaining a sense of inner-peace and optimism. This simple but beautifully wise and practical book is a gem. Don't step into the unknown without it.

With warmhearted clarity and transcendental common sense, Dennis Merritt Jones addresses the complexities, obstacles, joys, and ultimate fulfillment of walking the spiritual labyrinth home to the True Self. This is a book to read, reread, practice and embody.

Dennis has put together a piece of work that, to be honest, just may have pulled me back from an emotional brink. The amazing part is how I found key phrases, metaphors, and visualizations that had me scrambling for a pen (okay... okay... I used the notes feature on my Kindle, but you get the idea) so I could get my thoughts and feelings into a form for future reference. In fact, the book will require another reading in the near future, as I am sure the material will strike different chords with different people in varying situations.

As I am currently undergoing a lot of changes in my life (financial status, living situation, marital strife, self-employment), this book's message made so much sense on so many levels. While I avoid spoilers in my reviews, you should know this: You will not view your station or path in life the same when you shine the light of this material on them. Living in fear has so many of us curled into virtual balls of inactivity where we believe that we are safe - when the opposite is true.

Off the top of my head (as my notes would be too extensive for this review), I can list a few concepts discussed by Dennis that will have a lasting impact on how I view the changes and the unknown future in my life:

1. Habit energy's ability to carve ruts into our minds that can set us on auto-pilot when it comes to how we live our daily lives. More importantly, there is a poignant discussion on how habits themselves are neither good or bad and must be judged their relative merits: Whether they moves us closer or further away from our visions of our ideal selves.

A GREAT read! I was priviledged enough to purchase an advanced copy. It is a wonderful reminder that the reality of our world is really one of "groundlessness." We are very uncomfortable with this Truth and spend our entire lives trying to create the illusion of "solid ground." Dennis Merritt Jones gives good reasons to embrace the Truth, and instead of resisting it, learn to love it! Great read! Five stars! Earth Angel

It's hard to even put into words what a special book this is! Dennis Merritt Jones has a way through his story telling that is able to speak to people's hearts and souls and help others not only grow but to awaken to the possibilities around us every moment by just being present. The book is in small digestible chapters that you will read and want to spend time ruminating over because this is not just a book that tells us what our potential is, but one that shows us how to see our potential, how to move past the ruts we often find ourselves in by understanding why we are there and what is stopping us from growing. It gives examples of how to do this and then takes you a step further by giving you exercises that will help you pertain it to your own life. As he explains, We grow or we die, like all living things. You don't have to have a particular "issue" for this book to help you grow. It's one you won't give to others to read because you will always want it to refer back to at different times in your life. Great gift for those you love!

This book makes you think, slow down, and realize that most things in life are out of our control. It helps us "let go" of the things that don't matter and really focus on ourselves as we journey through our short lives.

There's nothing in this book I haven't heard before. I was looking for some inspiration from this book but didn't find it. I do meditate on a regular basis, and honestly, my personal meditations are more inspiring. If you are new to meditation or metaphysical thought you might get something out of this book, but there are better-written and much more interesting books out there. I wouldn't have reviewed this book except for the fact that it had nothing but 5 star reviews, which I suspect are from friends and Science of the Mind reverends. This book is dull, and contains nothing more than recycled ideas.

Format: Paperback
Dennis Merritt Jones is an excellent writer, a deep thinker, and a "for real" spiritual adventurer. He means what he says, and he lives true to every word. He is also a warm, loving, funny guy who has been my friend and colleague for over 30 years. I had the privilege of reading the original manuscript of "The Art of Uncertainty." I was immediately captivated by Dennis' thesis that we are not in control of our individual life in the sense that if we just sit tight, hang on, and affirm the positive, we can "rest assured" that things will go as we have planned. Throughout his book, he continuously reminds us that if we can surrender, moment-to-moment, to "What Is," no matter what seems to be, and if we can continue to have faith that things will unfold according to the Divine Mystery of One Beautiful Universal Plan (that includes us), we can live each moment in joy and peace. I highly recommend this book. It contains the quintessential message for these uncertain times.
