Imagine what life would be like if you could handle any inner distress whatsoever, any upset large or small, without needing anything from anyone and without any self-medicating behavior: not just distract yourself from the distress or get past it, but truly feel it resolve. Imagine knowing how to restore your inner balance- anytime anywhere, all by yourself- with nothing but your gentle, quiet attention. It is the essential skill that changes everything. It makes emotional responsibility and adulthood possible. Imagine being able to turn off the quiet desperation, the busyness, the neediness, the hurt, the anger, the not enoughness, the whole rat race of trying to get somewhere and missing the magic of life. Imagine stepping out of the world of too much to do and not enough time, of grasping and frantic-ness. Imagine knowing a simple technique that opens you to profound and effortless self love and self acceptance. Imagine knowing once and for all that You are whole, that everything that triggers you is really a gift, and how to receive and learn from the upsets with gratitude. And it's magically simple- no fixing or changing at all. Wow. Michael Brown has changed the world with this book.
In contrast, I have read many of Eckhart Tolle's books; but like Krishnamurti, Tolle's work is more a description of a level of consciousness and less a set of specific and ongoing instructions that lead you there in a relatively ego-proof manner. (The instructions "Listen to silence. Observe your thoughts. Be in nature. Be aware of your breath as often as you are able" are insufficient in the face of our unconscious emotional discomfort and the ego's desire to avoid real change.)
The Presence Process is a simple, direct, how-to manual to finish your emotional past so that you can stop reacting to it; stay in this glorious and eternal present moment; and respond to life. It is a very powerful tool and the most rapid and effective tool I have found to empower you to heal your inner emotional discomfort. It is that inner emotional discomfort that drives addictions and illnesses (physical, mental, and emotional) AND that keeps us from being here now for any significant length of time. You can acknowledge the power of now and say "yes to what is; however, the unconscious pain of the past keeps drawing us away from the present moment through constantly asking, "What happened?" because it was so painful and, "How do I keep it from happening again?" This drives our unconscious needs and wants which ever drive us from this moment. "This isn't it" is the way of being we are stuck with until we face, embrace, digest, and integrate the emotional past.
Simple and difficult. Challenging and exciting. Not for everyone. But if it is for you and you do it... you will be astounded.
Highly lucid. Highly effective. Highly recommended.
Note: this is NOT a book on technique. You're not going to learn tricks to put emotional charge "aside." This is really about being more alert to charge when it surfaces, and being able to discharge such distractions completely so the energy doesn't have to be contained. And you get to feel truly connected to more people, and yourself, and even experience "unconditional love."
For something more technique-oriented, and less deep, try David Rock's "Quiet Leadership"
