New book and it's all about you, as usual

Here’s a new book, just published on Lulu. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the original “Go Thunk Yourself!” Another tool you can use in your arsenal to solve your day-to-day problems.  Many of these essays may seem familiar, since you’ve seen them on this blog. (Don’t worry, I’ve left plenty of controversial material in there for discussion and raised eyebrows.)

Here’s the back cover, so you can get an idea:

Through all the books I’ve studied and lectures listened to – as well as my own research and tests down this line — it has become very clear to me that we each already have all the Freedom, Happiness, and Peace we could ever want. It’s just sitting there waiting for us to recognize its presence in our nature. Just waiting for us to let our own light shine.

That’s the secret people have been looking for all this time, the one which the self-help guru’s will sell you unlimited books, CD’s, video’s, and personal consultation to help you find. But I think, like Dorothy with her slippers, you eventually find that you’ve had the solution all along. And also like Dorothy, you have to make the journey before you’ll believe it’s that simple.

All this data has been known through the ages, hidden in dusty tomes and remote library Archives. Only in our modern Internet Age has all this become available, literally at your fingertips. It has as well become not only easier, but absolutely vital that each person take what can be grasped and experienced from this “virtual buffet”, and let the rest go. And as you now have to choose for yourself, the truth within will to start shining out on its own.

The trick is this one, simple datum:

The limits you have, the only things holding you back, are those you have accepted.

And these limits are all additive, not natural.

All the Freedom, Happiness, and Peace you want is already found within you, so to speak. It isn’t found by attending certain political rallies, or as a martyr for some cause. There is no government which can guarantee you any amount of freedom. No amount of money can buy it. No specific inherited DNA allows you to have more or less Freedom than the next fellow. And, likewise, no external person or thing can, of itself, actually limit your Freedom, even in the slightest.

The amount of Freedom, Happiness, and Peace you can have is dependent on yourself. You set your own limits to what you experience, every second of every day in your lifetime.
