BEING PEACEFUL AND PRODUCTIVE IS POSSIBLE!
The truth is the truth - there's only one and it's ineffable. The ways of describing it are myriad, though all have one thing in common: the power of metaphor. Metaphor is how we point to the way. When someone's metaphor resonates with you, even or especially if it's different from your own, it helps not only stretch your mind but also reinforce your own way by reminding you of what you already know, but might have forgotten in the rush.
When I met Sandy, I was instantly struck by his enthusiastic approach to spreading his word, and his courage in dedicating himself to forging a fresh path. I recognized myself in him, and was deeply touched by the quality of his soul. In this magnificent new book of his, through his innovative metaphor, alluding to the same truth and path I point to myself in all my work, he does so in a totally unique, original way. So that though I've written 14 books on the same topic, which normally leaves me nonplussed by offerings of a similar vein, I have been highly inspired reading this one and feel privileged to be writing the foreword.
As he so eruditely observes, inner peace and the joy deriving thereof, is not brought about so much by changing your thinking as some would have us believe, but by shifting the whole process of thinking itself, namely by entering the meditation state, whence pure awareness arises.
Pure awareness, uncluttered by thoughts of how well or badly you're doing in the game of local life, untroubled by the usual internal commentary and debate, facilitates the emptiness, hence receptivity espoused in the Taoist tradition I live by and teach myself. Being empty and in a peaceful state, they say, even gods and spirits are drawn to you bearing great gifts, let alone mere mortals.
In other words, seek peace and all else will be added. In Thunk! Sandy shows you how in the most splendidly eloquent way and I've no doubt you'll enjoy and benefit from each and every word.
Are you being Thunk?
Thinking too much is very stressful, potentially causing physical conditions, and has a massive impact upon your peace of mind and productivity.
Your mind is a powerful tool that you are meant to 'pick up' and use when required, and then 'put down' when you're done thinking. However, if you cannot stop thinking whenever you want, then you are not thinking, but instead, being THUNK!
Ever wish you could stop thinking so much?
With this fun and enlightening book, meditation teacher Sandy C. Newbigging (as seen on Discovery Health) shares advice and exercises for changing your relationship with your mind so that you can enjoy the serenity and success that comes from freeing yourself from thinking too much.
