Divided into three sections, it first debunks several myths about stress, then sets about telling us what we have to do differently and then HOW to do it. The "AHA!" moments are those epiphanies that make perfect sense, revalations about ourselves and the world that, in this case, should remove all forms of stress, worry and anxiety. I've been recommending this book to anyone who'll take the time to listen, it really is that good.
There are only one or two very minor criticisms I have, due to his apparent conflict with science and my scientific background, but they hardly detract from the underlying messages he brings out. It's rare for someone to understand this stuff, rarer still to teach it, and I've never seen the whole subject approached so concisely and accurately, and entertainingly!
Buy it: if it doesn't apply to you then, as the book says, give it to someone for whom it does.
I believe that on this occasion one would be better off just going for the original Buddhist teachings (Buddha in Your Mirror by Woody Hochswender is a good start) or if one wants to steer clear of religion then Positive Living by Vera Peiffer has some very good self-help ideas.
It was described to me then as a gem of a book. It certainly is a gem.
I have just given my copy to someone who needs it more than me right now, so I'm going to buy another.
The book is written well and clearly presented. Its actually a joy to pick up from time to time and read relevant sections again.
The 7 Aha's of Highly Enlightened Souls looks at change in an entirely new way. Normally, we look at change from an active perspective. What can I do to change my life? What steps do I have to take to achieve X? How do I go about getting Y? Essentially, we are looking outside our selves. We are trying to change our environment or another person so that our lives become better.
The 7 Aha's of Highly Enlightened Souls tells us that change isn't about doing it's about being. It states that the only real way to change is to look within and make efforts in self-knowledge and self-understanding. These explorations will lead to true growth and happiness. Most importantly though, this book reminds us that when we fixate and try to push something away, we are giving that situation more power which does the opposite of what we actually intend.
