When the Bon Buddhists left Tibet having foretold the 1959 invasion, they were scattered throughout the world to places where their teaching would be effective, and where they would find people to carry the Bon tradtion of skilful thinking.
One such Master discovered the author at the age four in New Zealand and thus began 23 years of instruction.
There are many great techniques that stem from this teaching, so I am enjoying this book tremendously. There are some easy, yet empowering exercises to move negative thoughts and create an empowering reality.
This is an easy to follow blueprint for living, which I highly recommend. This book came to me highly recommended, and I highly recommend it to you. I hope you find this helpful.
The book is divided into 10 sections, each covering an aspect of life from the Power of Thought through Relationships and Love to Helping others and the World in a Single Thought. Each section offers advice & practical exercises to deal with every aspect in your life. So if you are unable to consult directly with the leading practioner of BonMedicine in the western world, and his public seminars are rare in North America, then buy the book. I have and it continues to change my life every day.
For the cynical amongst you, I do not normally make recomendations of this sort, but for this book it was not difficult.
I gave this book an honest try. Let me present a brief snippet here for you to make your own judgement. This takes place on page 19 of my edition.
"I too have used thought energy once in this way, to stop an extremely violent situation. I saw a man draw a knife in a jealous rage, as his girlfriend stood talking to a friend. I knew that he was in danger of harming her, or someone else, so I used the power of thought energy to prevent him. Astonished, he dopped the knife, unable to understand why he suddenly felt his violent urge disappear."
Let's keep reading. There might be some practical applications to this book that I can use in my life. How should I use positive thinking to stop overworking? There is a solution, found on page 84.
"Sit quietly and for several minutes visualize a fire, burning all the negative energy out of your office and leaving it pristine and cleansed, ready for new, skillful thought energies to fill it. Repeat this daily until you no longer feel the energy of your workplace pulling you. Once you are freed from this, you will be able to change your lifestyle and refuse to overwork."
It is recommended to practice this thirty minutes per day. If anyone out there has the energy, it may be worthwhile to calculate the amount of meditation recommended in this book on a daily basis. I would guess it is no less than 4-6 hours.
Please do not buy this book. If you are truly interested, I will send you my copy - for free.
