    Demystify mysticism and learn techniques to move yourself beyond emotional and intellectual blocks into a realm of clear insight and inner peace.

    Overall

    I found layers and layers of insights in these recordings. I took what I could, and let the rest open to me = make sense to me as I went through life.
    I also found "Stumbling on Happiness" by Daniel Gilbert to complement this material.
    The two together gave me guidelines on how to observe the formation and movement of my thoughts and feelings, moment by moment. I listened to these two in late 2006. Today, 01/08, I find that I am more humble, more clear headed and more focused. The majority of my interactions with people are pleasant, but of course, even Jesus did not please everybody =O.
    These are not the results of listening to these books. These are the enduring results of maintaining the attitude (of vigilant observation and self-achieved submission to the impersonal, dymamic nature of existence=life=holy spirit=the source=allah=...) by applying the recommended techniques in everyday life. I find that I have more control over my actions, perform better under duress, and I am less desperate at trying circumstances. This recording was the beginning of a spiritual backpacking trip for me.
    I want to say, not everything has been perfect. But perfection is hardly the point (See Karen Armstrong - The Great Transformation).

  • Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life: A Kick-Butt Approach to a Better Life

    Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life is a Wall Street Journal number-one best seller that isn't afraid to tell you it's time to change. From motivational speaker Larry Winget, also known as "The Pit-bull of Personal Development" and "The World's Only Irritational Speaker", comes a not-so-typical self-help book. Winget's hilarious and in-your-face observations about the sometimes ugly truth of life will kick you in the butt and encourage you to change your life for the better.

    I couldn't believe how dull and useless this recording was. No insights here whatsoever.
