Get Conscious

How to Stop Overthinking and Come Alive

Author: Ali Walker, Dr.

Category: Self-Help

Page: 224

View: 8326

In ancient times, most people believed that if you travelled far enough to the edge of the world, you would fall off. This was a mirage that limited their lives. Today, the mirage that we all live by is the idea that ‘I will be happy when…’ I will be happy when I am married! I will be happy when I leave my job! I will be happy when I am rich! I will be happy when I am on holidays! This belief leads to us over-thinking and over-analyzing all the ways that we might be happier at some point in the future. But what if happiness is the wrong aim? What if happiness is like the horizon: an imaginary line that seems real until we start to chase it? In this book, Ali Walker shows that instead of seeking happiness in the future, we can all practice awareness in each moment. This is how we train ourselves to generate calming, positive and uplifting thoughts and emotions. Drawing on the author’s research in psychology, and her work with clients, Get Conscious breaks down the four elements of self-awareness, and provides strategies for mastering each: • Feel: Honor all emotions • Think: Choose positive thoughts • Sense: Trust the messages of your body • Act: Go with the flow of life and love Includes case studies, rituals, exercises and activities to help you tune into your inner being and let self-awareness guide you to genuine happiness. Get Conscious moves us out of overthinking and into awareness. It is the transformation of a lifetime.

You are Enough explores why we have become so worried about what other people think of us, and what our infatuation with comparison can cause on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. If you are sick of striving, or feeling like a perfectionist comparer, here are the practical tools for getting out of the comparison trap, so that you can learn to accept yourself as you are, and revel in the sense of peace and ease that this brings. Are you sick of giving yourself a hard time? Have you had enough of comparing yourself to others? Do you feel that nothing you do is good enough? It doesn’t have to be this way. Because guess what? Your worth is innate—you can’t earn it with accomplishments or by hitting your goals … which means you can’t lose it when you think you haven’t done enough. It’s time to let go of the negative thoughts that keep telling you that you’ll only be more when you work harder … that keep you stuck, constantly comparing yourself to those around you. It’s time to understand what your body is trying to tell you when you’re burning out, pushing yourself to your limits, and chasing self-worth, achievements and perfectionism. You are enough. Knowing this starts with accepting yourself. And the shift to true self-acceptance is realising you’re already enough.

Learn how to ban busy and focus on what really matters with 21 practical ways to say no and embrace silence, space and solitude. While cramming in one more task may feel useful, productive, or even satisfying, it’s not always the best use of a spare moment. In fact, it will inevitably lead us to a place where we become less productive, less creative, less inspired and less satisfied with life. The latest brain-function research shows that merely thinking of an activity, rather than actually doing it, sees the brain in active mode. While we might think we don’t have any space in our lives to do more of what is important to us, Do Less. Be More offers readers 21 activities to reclaim even the tiniest moments, like waiting for a coffee, to rest their brains and in so doing, rediscover insight, inspiration and fresh ideas.

A journey through what makes human beings afraid, into a new relationship with our fears In Fear: Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life, Osho takes the reader step by step over the range of what makes human beings afraid—from the reflexive "fight or flight" response to physical danger to the rational and irrational fears of the mind and its psychology. Only by bringing the light of understanding into fear's dark corners, he says, airing out closets and opening windows, and looking under the bed to see if a monster is really living there, can we begin to venture outside the boundaries of our comfort zone and learn to live with, and even enjoy, the fundamental insecurity of being alive. Fear ends with a series of meditation experiments designed to help readers experience a new relationship with fear and to begin to see fears not as stumbling blocks, but as stepping stones to greater self-awareness and trust.

The Fear and the Freedom

How the Second World War Changed Us

Author: Keith Lowe

Publisher: St. Martin's Press

ISBN: 1466842296

Category: History

Page: 512

View: 9521

Bestselling historian Keith Lowe's The Fear and the Freedom looks at the astonishing innovations that sprang from WWII and how they changed the world. The Fear and the Freedom is Keith Lowe’s follow-up to Savage Continent. While that book painted a picture of Europe in all its horror as WWII was ending, The Fear and the Freedom looks at all that has happened since, focusing on the changes that were brought about because of WWII—simultaneously one of the most catastrophic and most innovative events in history. It killed millions and eradicated empires, creating the idea of human rights, and giving birth to the UN. It was because of the war that penicillin was first mass-produced, computers were developed, and rockets first sent to the edge of space. The war created new philosophies, new ways of living, new architecture: this was the era of Le Corbusier, Simone de Beauvoir and Chairman Mao. But amidst the waves of revolution and idealism there were also fears of globalization, a dread of the atom bomb, and an unexpressed longing for a past forever gone. All of these things and more came about as direct consequences of the war and continue to affect the world that we live in today. The Fear and the Freedom is the first book to look at all of the changes brought about because of WWII. Based on research from five continents, Keith Lowe’s The Fear and the Freedom tells the very human story of how the war not only transformed our world but also changed the very way we think about ourselves.
