We are shown that our own mastery can be strengthened through training.

I liked that at the end of each chapter the chapter was summed up to go over the main points and help us remember better.

We are given a greater understanding of personal mastery in our lives. I would recommend this book to those who want to gain more mastery over events in their lives.

The Motivation Manifesto by Brendon Buchard

imageThe Motivation Manifesto: 9 Declarations to Reclaim Your Personal Power by Brendon Burchard is written in a poetic style that is reminiscent of the writings of the founding fathers of America. I was very excited to get this book in the mail and couldn’t wait to read it. This book is a dark brown hard cover with rounded edges and gold writing on the cover, it also comes with a red ribbon as a bookmark, and looks almost like a bible.

I liked how the book was laid out and found the nine declarations to be motivational. I guess in that sense the title do what it said it would, it provided motivation. However, I felt that there could have been some exercises in the book to help the reader integrate the declarations into their lives a little more. My favorite chapter was the last one where we are encouraged to take an extra breath or two before we begin something and perhaps in doing so we will see certain things in a different light.

Overall, I liked this book and would recommend it to those seeking motivation.

The Reason for all Existence by Davis McLeod

imageThe Reason for All Existence: How Existence at it’s Fundamental Level Works by Davis McLeod gives us an idea of why we exist and also how to direct our lives in a positive way. We are shown the “basic concepts that underpin existence.”

We are taught about the idea of a fluid existence. We are shown a different way to look at good and evil, right and wrong. We are asked if concepts are latent knowledge. We are taught at about concepts such as infinity, absolute zero, and existing misconceptions. This little book will show you how such concepts relate to our existence. We will also be shown a different way to look at our world and our existence.

I found this book to be thought provoking and and an interesting read. I would recommend d this book to those who want to see a new way to look at our existence at its fundamental levels.

Stillness in Mind by Simon Cole

image Stillness in Mind: A Companion to Mindfulness, Meditation, and Living by Simon Cole is a good book on meditation presented from a western therapeutic tradition for our modern age.

We are taught about not being distracted, not judging, contemplation after meditation, and the mindfulness of feelings among other things. One of my favorite sections of the book was entitled, “Meditation on the Experience of Peace.” We are taught how to use meditation to visit our personal pains. We are shown that through meditation we can overcome our pain and transform it. We are also given a meditation entitled, “Benevolence for Our World” and shown how to use it.

At the end of the book we are given a chapter that shows us where we can go from there after we have read the book. This book is great for anyone who wants to find a new way to look at meditation and mindfulness. I will be reading this book again.
