This book is for you if:
You have read countless books on 'enlightenment', including works of Eckart Tolle, Ramana Maharshi, etc., and you are wondering why the world hasn't disappeared into swirls of light yet.
You are apt to wax lyrical about your 'spiritual experience', and how your self has turned into your Self, and you run around shouting 'I am all this', but really you know not much has changed.
You read the Tao and listen to Alan Watts and think they are beautiful, but wonder what practical use they have.
For Joey there is only one noun (this) and one verb (be). 'This is' your Lott :-)
This read is refreshing, challenging, and very well written in short chapters.
I recommend this to anyone who has been diligently studying and practicing spiritual teachings, not to challenge them, but your perception of them.
You're Trying Too Hard by Joey Lott, is a razor's edge, cutting away at mental constructs so efficiently that an honest reader will find it hard to argue with. I highly recommend it to anyone who is open to reconsidering a lot of unconscious assumptions about spirituality, the mind, the ego, etc.
There is one thing I would ask the author, Joey Lott, to reconsider with this work. He blames certain popular teachers for misleading "most people". While Mr. Lott may be correct in his assertion that most people have been mislead, there is simply no way to know if this misleading is/was intentional or not. It appears that Joey is identified with what should be, which is not "what is". And since, "what is" is the entire focus of You're Trying Too Hard, Mr. Lott appears to undermine his own premise a bit.
I would recommend the reader be very careful about taking on a jaded or judgmental feeling when reading this work,.
That aside, You're Trying Too Hard is clearly and powerfully written - a rare gem, worth every penny!
Our savior Joey Lott has been crucified so we don't have to be (OK, too late for me). He has been through the Mill and he ain't that old. He has been through an intensive "self"-created hell, along side me and you, and we're all thinking, hmmm, is this necessary? And then Joey blurts out, "Not!"
Joey's latest work really kicks ass. Serious meditators and non-duality addicts should take a breather and read this book. And then, as the poet said, "Get stewed" because "Books are a load of crap." Please read this load of crap. Endearingly. Right away. And then keep it simple, stupid.

It feels somewhat like a condescending ramble.
