Examples of sections include: Enjoy the simple pleasures, Experience your true self in the moment, Love what is or suffer, Choose how to respond to life, Stress is a sign you are believing the mind, Give up the drama.
For example, I am in the Vine program here on Amazon, and thus am offered lots of free books every month or two (the only obligation is you have to review them). I have never said yes to anything they have offered to send me. With 10 spiritual books on my nightstand, I simply don't have time to read all the books I currently have. So, wanting more books just to have them is simply not of interest to me.
And now to one that is: WHAT ABOUT NOW? is a collection of powerful quotes from Gina's many previous books. Think of it as sort of a "greatest hits" collection of spiritual teachings. Here are a few quotes that been highlighted in my copy:
"When you are just present to what you are experiencing, you notice all sorts of sensory details that are usually overlooked... The ego isn't satisfied with these things because it isn't satisfied with anything."
"The ego gives us a false sense of knowing, which is comforting, even though it doesn't really know where life is going or what will happen next. So, all you really have to surrender is the pretense of knowing. The truth is that you don't know what the next moment holds."
How that last sentence "hits" you will tell you a lot about where you are on the "pathless path." Does your spirit celebrate the not knowing that Gina is writing about, or does your ego refuse to even consider letting go of the imaginary "life steering wheel" it likes to think it controls? Only YOU can answer this.Read more ›
Forget struggling to grasp unintelligible esoteric teachings! Gina Lake has crafted a remarkably easy read that distills the most profound wisdom into practical guidance. Written in easily digestible bits, one topic per paragraph, What about Now? offers a much needed roadmap on how to move out of the egoic mind and live from essence. Even the title prods us to make this shift by asking us to stop and question where we are putting our attention. The entire book is a priceless reminder that each moment is a gift, a blessed opportunity to move out of our heads and into our hearts. Simply reading it creates the experience of awakeness and will transform your life into a heaven on earth.
Such a lovely gift and light you are!
