Joey Lott has tied up the loose ends for me, yet showed me why all the other books couldn't work. I'm going to accept all the experiences as they are, which itself is a first for me, I've known for years that my brain hasn't done anything but keep me in a fear state and I'm ready to not try and control my thinking and let the thoughts and fears roll and dissolve-and be with life as it is, not as it was or will be. It's as if my whole life I've been forcing my brain to diet on good thoughts and happy feelings whilst squashing my cravings for fear and strong unhappy emotion. Surely anything can be better than being (un) comfortably numb? Please try the book, it's cheap, he doesn't sell you a webinar for money and he's been to some low places and is refreshingly open. I will update in a couple of months in case I've not been coherent. But I'm excited and a little nervous that this may be the answer after all the years of futile living.
You can stop now. Stop trying to figure it out. Stop trying to get enlightened. Stop concentrating. Stop investigating. Stop meditating. Stop trying to stop.
Be as you are.
Your true nature is not "you." Neither is it other than you. It is not the "Witness." It's not your True Self, or a Big Self that subsumes your small self. Your true nature is the true nature of everything. You don't have to do anything to be it; nothing you could do would make you other than it. You can't mess it up or tarnish or stain it. You've never been apart from it. In order to recognize it, you have only to stop adding "yourself" to it. To even refer to this most fundamental of realities as "it" or to call it anything at all is to risk reducing it to a concept and thereby missing it.
Nothing you can do will lead to this. Nothing you can do or not do will lead you away from this. No amount of meditative attainment or achievement will get you any closer or any further away. The very act of doing or intending anything is something you are adding to this moment; when you are actively doing something, even something so seemingly innocuous as investigating your experience, you are "compounding" or adding something extra to your experience. Surrender now.
May you be happy.
Because Joey Lott does not shy away from calling it "As It Is."
"The Best Thing That Never Happened" is raw, gritty, dirty, yet warm and full of compassion for the apparent "Me" and for "What Is."
Years ago, I attended a meeting with Jeff Foster and I remember leaving the meeting confused and slightly angry.
To make a long story short: I don't like sugarcoating. (No offense to Jeff.)
And the author does not sugarcoat.
The book makes me think of Miles Davis' "Bitches Brew" record.
It's intense but light, it speeds up and slows down, it takes you off the road, through the mud, it's a little out of tune and far from complete.
Because it can't be.
And that is enough.
I really resonated with this book and can wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone; and I mean Everyone.
It's also much fun and quite helpful to hear tales from Joey's crazy life story, which this reader took in the spirit of teaching that even a roller-coaster train-wreck of a life has no negative value once the Truth is seen.
