A Tribute to "It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts"
"I have 2 online businesses, on both I posted your book, It's Monday Only in Your Mind as reading material for this year. Your written experience has influenced me more than any book I have read, what my M.A. in psych has taught me, 16 years of on/off therapy, Byron Katie workshops, personal interaction with Phil Lombardo, Shakit Gawin, Bob Stahl, Louise Hays and various Hay House authors that I personally know who have directed me towards my true being of love. There hasn't been a need to see my therapist for 6 weeks. I am looking forward to a new relationship with him and with myself. Thank you so much for discovering the truth and sharing it with the world. Without meeting you, I believe you are my friend."

Just by being alive you have some sense of awareness, this is basically true for all beings, but where humans differ from other species is in the ability of truly being aware of being mindful.
The mind becomes conditioned and it creates stories, these are then used to make you believe they’re needed to be at peace, but the story to be at peace is the exact reason there isn’t peace…
Oneness with others comes from a deep place of love. This isn’t something that any human activity can make happen. It’s the connection to your own heart, that’s when you connect to the hearts of others…
The Conditioned Mind will relinquish its control only if discipline is developed, and it's this discipline that allows one to be with life in the present moment instead of the past or future...
There’s so many directions you can choose from, but it’s not always known if it’s beneficial. One way to know if it’s a benefit would be if there’s harmony within even though on the outside things may not be loving.
Addiction: Getting to the Root: If you don’t get to the entire root of a weed, the weed will keep coming back. The only reason this is an issue is because it will not allow the beauty of the flowers to flourish.
