Love Gina Lake's work.
Mar 18, 2011 Laura rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
If you're like me and your opportunities to read come in stolen moments here and there, then Gina Lake's new format in Living in the Now is perfect for you! It doles out its perennial wisdom in bite-sized, easy-to-digest and assimilate pieces. Contrary to a popular misunderstanding, if waking up is your heart's desire, there is a lot to choose and commit to. This book can take you there, right to Truth's door, if you follow its simple and practical advice. In addition, Living in the Now unlocks ...more

This wonderful book of short essays has a lot of the answers to life, and what it means to shed our egos and find who we truly are.
The first fourth or so of her books are interesting. From there her thinking gets circular.

“Most preferences are a matter of taste, which varies from person to person. So how important can they be to our happiness? If we prefer chocolate ice cream and are given vanilla instead, how bad is that? Many people would rather have vanilla, so it can't be that bad. What makes it bad is comparing chocolate to vanilla or holding an idea of chocolate while eating vanilla. The problem isn't in the experience of vanilla, but in what the mind does with that experience. The mind interferes with experiencing vanilla ice cream with images and ideas of something else. If uncluttered by those images, eating vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate is just a different experience, not an inferior one, or at least not a reason to suffer.” 0 likes
“The mind is useful in making distinctions between things, finding differences, and evaluating them.” 0 likes
