STRESS...that 6 letter word that can end a good day, ruin a good week, and demolish a happy and peaceful existence.
But what if WE are creating our own stress, and what if we could get rid of it?
In his bookEnding Stress: A Practical Guide to Nondual Meditation Jonathan Harrison walks us through what stress is, what is creating it, and how we can get rid of it. To do that, we must be aware of three things
the way you think about things;
the way things really are;
the results of confusing these.
We view things based on our own opinions, and when something is happening in our own life, we tend to view as much more chaotic than it truly is...those on the outside will see it for what it is, more quickly than the person experiencing it will. Which is often why people say "its not as bad as it seems"...if you can learn to view things as they truly are, instead of viewing them how you think they are, you can end the stress that comes with it.
Jonathan walks us through several mediation methods, and each chapter ends with a meditation period in which to use the techniques that were just discussed.
I don't want to go to far into the methodology of this book, as I think it is important for people to read it, and immerse themselves fully into the lesson. I will say that if you choose to read this book, you will learn about techniques that have been used for more than 2500 years.
This guide shows you clearly and directly how to remove stress, anger, fear and worry by becoming more realistic, using 2,500 year old meditation and therapy tools and inspired by masters of nondual and Buddhist wisdom traditions including Dzogchen, Mahamudra, Zen, Madhyamika, Advaita and Tao. Jonathan Harrison teaches nondual and Buddhist meditation and psychology.
The guide explains how mental stress is created and how to remove it from your life in all its forms including anger, anxiety, disappointment, discontent, dissatisfaction, dread, envy, fear, frustration, guilt, humiliation, impatience, insult, misery, mistrust, regret, tension and worry
