    This book is great for a couple reasons, and I've recommended it to several people outside of the pickup community. I had a few friends dealing with anxiety issues read it and it helped them a lot. You do not need to be spiritual or religious to understand it- its more about altering your way of thinking and breaking bad habits/thinking cycles. Everyone needs to give this book a shot, no exceptions.

    I'm 2/3rd through the book now and i have mixed feelings about it. The exercises don't really seem to help or do much for me. But some things have been useful, for example: "the only thing there ever is, is the now" So if you start to worry, ask yourself, do i have a problem right now? The answer is always no

    This monday i overslept and i was late for work and on my way to work in the train i was worrying about it. Then i remembered: "Wait, do i have a problem right now? No, i'm perfectly fine." And my worry disappeared. This way you will almost never worry, and you deal with the problem when it presents itself. Even if it presents itself right now you wouldn't be worrying about it cause your mind is busy taking care of the problem.

    This alone is definitely worth it. Though i agree there is a bit too much spiritual "mumbo jumbo" in it.
    For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.

    Frankly regarding the spiritual "mumbo jumbo" that people have a problem with need to understand that sometimes the words he's using are simply being used to give some kind of definition to some of the more abstract aspects of our personality. I got the audio version of it and its really helpful when he himself delivers it to you.
    A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

    Yo whats up guys. I finished his book and am half way through a new earth. The power of now was really good. A new earth is also real good so far. Im just wondering what conceptsa helped you guys the most that you use in your life? Recently I have put his ideas into practice. Like being as consciously present as possible with whatever im doing and the dissolving of the pain body. Also, ive tried doing the inner body awareness and all that other stuff. Pretty much im asking about how long does it take to see a real big difference in yourself while using his teachings? And what ideas worked best for you?

    Im really looking to get my inner shit together and this would help me out tremendously so I start spending more time on the things that worked better than on the things that dont work as good. Anyways his books are the shit.

    Great content, but this is basically Bhuddism and zen, he's just repackeged it put his name on it and made a fortune! Cant blame him though. But if you want to go deeper look to Zen/bhuddism/Taoisim not this dude.

    Yeah ive read this book it helped heaps with approach anxiety, and stress in general. you do that exercise where you feel the energy inside you and let it flow around your hands and up your arms etc.

    When you have that anxious feeling your shoulders generally feel all tingly like something is lifting off them or floating above them, this fits with the visual representation of an anxious persons aura it basicaly looks like a scared cat, so focusing on the energy flowing through you draws it back in and relieves the anxious feeling. Im into eastern martial arts and spirtulisim kinda so these concepts make heaps of sense to me.

    Ive been using that one heaps also the whole "my ego is causing me this distress" thing, especially when dealing with chicks flaking or when i get AFC needy feelings
