Excerpts

Free Text Preview Chapter Overview Chapter One FLOWING WITH THE STREAM I believe with great conviction, that the purpose of life, is to attain knowledge, and if possible enlightenment. We have all been incarnated into the physical plane, on the planet Earth. This is our class room, and all of our fellow humans, are teachers, students, or probably both. I would like to share with you the experiences of my life that stimulated me to discover, and stay on the flow. Chapter Two Mapping Our Course In this chapter we will explore methods to map our future. Before we can map our future course, we must first understand our basic nature. The three major chapter topics are: Understanding Our Past We need to understand our basic nature, and how we have been socialized by our family and friends, to become the person we are. Understanding Our Present We should be able to articulate our current values and goals, and understand which life games we are playing Plotting Our Future Course If we have a clear direction and purpose, we can take advantage of the winds and currents of life to live on the flow. Chapter Three The Journey To Perfection The journey to perfection is a process rather than an outcome, and a process which probably never ends. There is always another step to take, another refinement to make. Our journey to perfection must take place in three critical areas of our life. Intra-Personal Perfection The ability to, discipline our emotions, thinking, and the management of our time, is critical to moving toward perfection. Inter-Personal Perfection The ability to, manage our relationships with others in an ethical, and harmonious manner. Planetary Perfection The ability to, live on the Earth, in a sustainable manner. Chapter Four Extending Our Life This chapter will explore methods of increasing our active, creative life span.

Chapter Five We Are What We Think In this chapter we will explore the impact of our thinking mind, on our health, and longevity. The chapter contains the following areas of exploration. Think About How We Think Current theory and practice in mental therapy, utilizes a method called, cognitive psychology, which teaches individuals to cultivate positive thoughts, to create positive emotional states. Levels of Consciousness Consciousness is on a continuum with many levels. The lower levels of consciousness, represented by negative thinking, such as, anger, and sorrow, have a detrimental effect on our health and longevity. Mastering Our Mind The higher levels of consciousness represented by positive thinking, laughter, and joy produce positive endorphins that have a beneficial effect on our health and longevity. Chapter Six Maintaining Our Earth Suit In this chapter we will explore the idea of our body, as an earth suit, given to us, on the day of our birth. This self- healing machine requires that we pay attention to three major areas of machine maintenance: We Become What We Eat. We need to run our bodies on high quality fuel. An on-going healthy diet is required for extending our active life span. Move It Or Lose It. We will explore a variety of movement practices.

Chapter Nine Re-inventing Our-Self Life is a continuous process of incremental change, it is possible to achieve a more rapid advancement towards our vision of perfection, by a major reinvention of who we are. Reinvention Some of us are forced into reinvention, others of us choose to reinvent them-selves. If we have a clear image of perfection, it is possible to make major gains through reinventing ourselves. Reinvention by Intention We will explore different methods for developing a personal reinvention plan.
