Wonderful book - the solution to life's problems!
on 22 June 2012
I've previously reviewed "The secret of instant healing" by the same author. In that book we learnt the QE Triangulation Healing Technique by which we can access our Eufeelings and start healing. In this book we are presented with the Stopping-Thought Exercise where we watch our thoughts for 5-10 seconds, whereupon we ask the question: Where will my next thought come from? A short break in our thinking will occur - the Gap, and this Gap is the Source of thought.
There is Nothing in the Gap, and we thus attain a pure awareness of Nothing. Nothing is not empty - it is filled with pure awareness.
The author explains that the Eufeeling we may access while in the Gap is in fact the Self, which reflects in our mind as joy, love and peace. When a Eufeeling, which may be as simple as stillness or silence, arises, we are advised to "easily observe it". If thoughts return, "innocently observe them, too". They will give way to either "no-thought" or pure awareness, or your Eufeeling. We should continue to observe and do nothing else - do nothing but watch our thoughts and wait for our Eufeeling. When the Eufeeling is in our awareness, focus on it clearly and intently. We may at times have neither Eufeeling nor thoughts, and this is pure awareness. Then we should wait in pure awareness until our Eufeeling "rises" again.
The first part of the book seems mostly to be composed of philosophical/metaphysical discussions and explanations, but I deeply enjoyed reading these and the book as a whole, since it is meticulously well-expressed and full of humour.
What I got out of the book was that you should strive to practice QE many times a day until finally you are constantly in the desired state of pure awareness or experiencing a Eufeeling. The quality of all aspects of your life will then greatly improve.
The book includes chapters on healing negative emotions, creativity and overcoming creative blocks, healing physical pain, improving athletic performance, the perfect relationship, sleeping and insomnia and good and poor eating habits. It even contains a chapter for children with a fairy tale type of story that will help explain QE to them.
There are useful appendices too. Appendix A contains the Triangulation Technique explained in "The Secret of Instant Healing". Appendix B contains answers to many frequently asked questions; I found this section extremely helpful. Appendix C tells us of Dr. Kinslow's background. He spent years studying TM under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (I wonder if he encountered Susan Shumsky, who also had him as her guru). Amongst other things, he has spent hours of deep meditation in the Alps. So I understand why he finds it so easy to do QE (see below about my difficulties)!
When reading the book I got the feeling that the practice of QE was the solution to everything - if only I could find out how to do it properly! I have been trying for months without much success but tonight after preparing this review I've made progress! I found out that it's necessary for me to relax and let go. The problem was apparently too much control by the mind, but as soon as I relaxed a Eufeeling immediately popped up! I'm so glad that my problem has now been solved, and really look forward to working with QE from now on.
Dr. Kinslow advises those who are having difficulty in seeing results when using QE to heal themselves to focus on healing others instead, as they themselves will perhaps derive even greater benefit from these healings. It is important to let go of control and stop trying. (That's what I've just found out, so I can vouch for that.)
I highly recommend this important book for all those wishing not only to heal themselves and others but also to completely transform their lives. (I got a Eufeeling just by writing that sentence!) I also much look forward to reading those books of Dr. Kinslow I haven't yet read.
