What is this eBook about?

Our society has given us answers to questions we’ve never asked, and those answers have become our way of life. A mode of living that incessantly raises new questions because the answers given are at best useless, if not right out detrimental.

Seeing the truth of this is one thing. But stepping out of the vicious circle, to be liberated of preset directives and seeing what our own questions and answers are needs tremendous effort, courage, and absolute clarity.

It’s perhaps one of our toughest challenges, because our habits, concepts, knowledge, opinions, cultural, social and educational mold are remarkably persistent and have imposed a very particular mental disposition on us; a state of mind that hinders us to see the world and ourselves from out an unbiased and dispassionate perspective.

Moreover, in an increasingly globalized world with universal ways of thinking, the stranglehold of “doing it their way” has become an almost insurmountable barrier.

Clearly seeing “the state of affairs,” realizing deeply the truth of it, is a prerequisite to come to our own response to life and living. That response however, can never be formulated by the tools we got handed by our educational institutions and environment, may that be our country, schools, jobs, teachers, gurus, family or friends.

In fact, an entirely other mindset is needed. Another approach and another way of looking. An attitude and way of life that emerges from inside of us. We will need our own answers and no one else can know what they are, or should give them to us.

Are we able to set aside all that we’ve learned so far and think to be true about attaining happiness, fulfillment, peace of mind, self-realization or enlightenment? Can we cast off all artifice, opinions and conceptual frameworks, and pay careful, unprejudiced attention to the dynamics of both our outer and inner life? Is it possible and how?

And, when we’ve finally come to “our own thing,” can we then assume true response-ibility and follow our inner callings and insights? Are we willing to take the consequences of doing so?

In fact, do we have any other choice if we want to attain true peace of mind and happiness?
