From the Author:
Okay, so, there was this thing happening where people all around me kept asking me to teach them how to meditate. I thought about all these people and I started telling folks I would make a workshop about it.
And so I did online marketing with social media and then I even put posters up all over town. Finally the day came of the first workshop and three people showed up. I tried a few more times and still nobody was showing up, even though people had been asking me every day to do this thing.
So I thought I should take the speaking notes from the powerpoint and write a book. I wrote the book, and it sucked. It was just another damn book about meditation that may show up in the "New Age" section of a bookstore piled in with all the other meditation books. And so I put it back on the shelf and let it sit there occasionally pondering over who could benefit the most from a meditation book.
One eventful afternoon I was riding my bike past a construction site when I heard tools being thrown, screaming, yelling, fighting noises and saw a gathering circle of employees. As I stood there watching waiting to see if any fight action would happen I thought to myself "Geeze, if there's anyone who needs meditation in this world, it's those guys!".
And that was my 'lightbulb' moment. I rushed back home to start re-writing my book for the 3rd time. As I was writing, I started to get this light southern Matthew McConaughey kinda accent in my head and it really started to help shape the character of the book. I was able to step out of my own head; preconceived notions and biases about the topic of meditation, surrender and let it go.
And so this book is written in regular speaking language so it's super easy to get through. By the end of it you'll have a set of tools to help you live a more peaceful life.It doesn't take long before you start to see the results.
After some practice the tools become effortless and will remove any awareness of the frustrations and worries of your everyday life.
You immediately begin to take back control of your actions and your thoughts that cause those actions.
There really is no concern for yourself in any way, this all just happens for you. It really starts to feel like time moves differently for you as discomforting hours can pass by in minutes and those happy minutes can feel like hours!
This book was designed specifically for the blue collar workforce; the layperson, the tradespeople or labourers of this world. The intent is to teach you about tried and true meditation techniques.
