Break out of the Hypnosis

The Chat

Stop thinking so much

When is it, do you think, that you’ll be at your best? When is it that you’ll be really on the Yellow Brick Road of your life, of what’s possible for you, of the greatness out there that awaits you? How do you get on that path?

Well, if you’re still using your rational mind, day after day, to get on that path – reading lots of books and doing every seminar there is, and thinking and thinking and thinking yourself to death – stop. You don’t need to think more, you need to find some peace.

Every sage and seer that has ever written or spoken a word has told us that you need to find peace, you need to stop for a minute and get some clarity.

Do something for yourself

When we look at society, at some of the great ideas people have had, where did they come from? Did they come from locking themselves in a room and thinking, thinking, thinking, thinking? So often this is not the case. The ideas come from moments of clarity. They seem to come from nowhere.

All of the great thinkers in the world, the people who have done great things, have found a way to get some peace, and one of the best ways you can do it is through meditation.

I talk about meditation all the time. It’s something that I do and have done for many years. Some of my best decisions – all of my best decisions – have come after periods of meditation. You get this incredible clarity.

How long do you need to do it? You only need to do it for 15 minutes, twice a day. And if you think you can’t afford that time, you can’t invest that time, get real. Can you not afford half an hour in your day to stop and do something for yourself?

Break out of the hypnosis

The scientific benefits – now that we can hook people up to EEGs and MRIs and all sorts of scans – are absolutely undeniable. Nothing will improve your mental function, your brain coherence, like meditation. That’s pretty well settled. The question is: Can you break out of the hypnosis that plagues our world – ‘do, do,do, think, think, think, do, do, do, go here, go there, be on a screen’? Can you break out of that long enough to do something for yourself, to get some of your own wisdom and make some decisions in life?

You will be astounded by where they take you.

The Pitch

Andrew HughesThe 5Ps to an Authentic Fulfilling Life is on again!

Andrew speaks a language that can be understood by everyone and gives simple easy to follow tools to improve how we see the world.” –Mary

“I’ve been to a number of Andrew’s events. I always learn something new and I’m also reminded of the things I know I should practice each day. And the best part is…I have a lot of fun while I’m there. Andrew is truly inspirational and his passion is contagious!”–Maxine

“I am writing to say how much I appreciated your recent presentation at the library, as well as Karen’s quiet presence. What a great team you are. Your generosity of time and enthusiasm is inspiring, Andrew. I have passed your details on to friends. What a great thing it would be in schools…I trust your courses will be enjoyed by many.”–Jane

The Gift – Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

aurelius

My gift to you today is a PDF download of Meditations by Marcus Aurelius.

I first read this when I was a 20 year old university student, just beginning my spiritual journey. It  is a series of personal writings by Marcus AureliusRoman Emperor 161–180 CE, setting forth his ideas and philosophy.

“You have the power to strip away many superfluous troubles located wholly in your judgement, and to possess a large room for yourself embracing in thought the whole cosmos, to consider everlasting time, to think of the rapid change in the parts of each thing, of how short it is from birth until dissolution, and how the void before birth and that after dissolution are equally infinite.”

Enjoy!

Have a great day, and bring your best to the world.
