Book Description

28 Nov 2007
Rewiring the Brain is not just another book on stress. It explores a daring and innovative path to accessing the power of consciousness as a more effective and lasting solution to tackle stress and emotional afflictions. The present remedies, such as drills of positive thinking and self-hypnosis through beliefs, accrue only temporary solace and euphoria that wear off sooner than expected. Also our reasoning power is not able to rein in the unyielding force of negative emotions that fuel stress and depression. Hence, this book pursues a new approach. It outlines also certain ways that slow down aging process and enhance memory, attention span, and emotional equilibrium. The book is a fascinating journey to the inner world of self-its constructs of emotions, thoughts, and memories-to discover why one behaves the way one does. We go through myriads of joys and sorrows in the long course of life, but hardly have the patience to pause and ponder over the reasons that make them. Does it matter? Yes, much more than perhaps one realizes. Stress should not be seen as an isolated issue. It betrays the quality of individual self in its ceaseless action of living. We have one and only life-the most precious thing we happen to possess, and it is but natural that we struggle hard to do our utmost to make it a wonderful experience. Stress, in its overt or covert forms, works as a persistent factor that undermines the spontaneity, joy, and beauty of life. In this competitive and complex world, one faces countless factors of stress that are unavoidable and immutable, including illness, accident, or death. There are some other factors that can be altered through efforts, which play a more decisive role in life. These are individual attitude, mental tendencies, and ways one interacts with external world. There is much truth in the saying "Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it." An objective understanding of these individual factors means that half the battle of tackling stress is won. Hence, the book seeks to help the reader face and understand the workings of inner self and its intricacies without resorting to psychological escape or suppression. Yet an objective understanding is only the first step. It does not resolutely change our mental habits and conditionings that are hardwired in the brain. This suggests the need to go beyond the remedies prevalent now and look for fundamentally new solutions. In such effort, this book explores the possibility of using the power of consciousness to rewire the brain and tackle stress. The book has a refreshingly open-minded approach, devoid of religious ideologies or mystical beliefs, and does not involve psychological escapes. The practical methods and benefits are outlined in a scientific spirit and correlated with research by neuroscientists, psychologists, and medical institutes. The book does not offer shortcuts or peripheral solutions, because none exists. Neither does it offer self-hypnosis and gratifying beliefs that are concealed in prescriptive actions and mental drills.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Grateful To Have Found This Book 22 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have suffered with acute anxiety for over a year now and tried everything and read every book on the subject. I had given up hope of ever getting better when this book arrived in the post. My anxiety is not related to any one thing, more like a general anxiety of everything. I have the most dreadful panic attacks that can sometimes take me days to get over, the point is my anxiety couldn't have gotten any worse. I love this book, it is basically about the use of awareness meditation to overcome many mental and even physical afflictions. It is written from a scientific standpoint and has nothing to do with religion, repetition of mantra's or any of the stuff people associate with the tedium of regular meditation. It encourages the reader not to suppress unpleasant emotions or avoid them, but rather to let the mind be free to do as it pleases with you being aware from a detached viewpoint. Every time I found myself having a question about something that was talked about it was always, without exception, answered. I'm very grateful to Rajnish Roy for writing this wonderful book.Thank you.
