Newly revised, This Endless Moment is a book for people on a serious quest for their identity.
This book clears away the myths, half-truths and misconceptions that keep us from living fulfilling, clear and meaningful lives.
Using stories, illustrations and common sense advice, Wayne C.Allen guides his readers to increasing levels of understanding and self-responsibility.
From page 56: "Blind luck is a stupid thing to trust your lifeto. Having the life you want requires focus, dedication, and, first and foremost, an understanding of what, specifically, you want."
"Wayne C. Allen has taken important complex concepts and ha expressed them in an accessible and practical way. His very personal approach is remarkable. This is an excellent, readable book. We're impressed!"

Amazon Reviews for 1st edition:
It spoke to me. Cleared things up. A good author.
OK,this one spoke to me. As much or more than the other Wayne Allen book I had purchased and read (the one about the Buddha Hall).
The thing is, I was well on the way to figuring out myself in relation to my life. Or so I thought.
Like living my life dealing with the cards I'm dealt. And like making no demands that others be different than they are.
Some of the conclusions I had reached were confirmed in this book. Enough so I identified with it. Then, it proceeded to inform me about how much more there is to know.
Like the fact that nothing means anything intrinsically. Which means blaming is entirely subjective. Things like that.
And that there really is nothing about me that is broken or needs fixing.
Now, I am lots further on the way to figuring out myself in relation to my life.
Thank you, Mr. Allen. A wonderful book you wrote.
A Real Eye-Opener
How does one review a Zen book? I mean, my experience of the book is shaded with my own perceptions and delusions . . . let's just say This Endless Moment is written by a relationship counselor who shares parts of his personal journey and uses examples from some of his clients to teach and illuminate in an entertaining, often humorous way. It's a goldmine of useful approaches and experiences that you'll want to read slowly,contemplating along the way how the author's observations may pertain to your own life and especially your relationships -- with yourself, with your mate, with the external world.
Great little read on dealing with life and the self
Wayne C. Allen, in my opinion, knocks it out of the park with this relatively short and simple book. He brings some fantastic knowledge to the table in this book on Zen and psychology. You see, Wayne is one of a rare breed of Zen Psychotherapists. I've found this to be extraordinarily well suited for those of us who are lost or all tangled up with things.This mixture of Zen and psychology offers a rare glimpse into that which is not normally spoken of. The first time I read it I thought I'd found the manual to living life! I'm on my second e-copy (first one was lost on a hard drive). If you make the decision to read this, be prepared to have a look inside the human condition...
