Let’s Go Thinkabout by Rita Harrison.
A book review from The Fat Harry
This is the strangest book I’ve ever read, because most of the words come out of my head. They radiate from my mind like the beam of a lighthouse on a stormy, windswept night, showing me the jagged rocks of my discontent.
Believe me, I’ve read books before on being a better person and all of them have screamed at me their preformed thoughts and ideas that had nothing to do with my life, or how I live.
I resented them immediately; life is hard enough when you have to daily bend your ideas to whichever group conscious you’re desperately clinging to at the time in order to belong.
Anyway I already have a network of parents and peers, friends and family, TV, radio and newspapers that are all too willing to tell me what my opinions are.
Imagine how freeing it is to read a book of this genre that asks you questions, where your answers can’t be wrong.
This is a book that clearly excepts the fact that no one on earth knows you better than yourself, that understands that you have only given prize certain parts of your life to others, depending on the level of trust you have for them at any given moment in time and respects that there are dark and frightening parts of your mind that will never, ever be revisited.
I’ve checked out Rita Harrison and her integrative freedom systems mentoring on her website. She believes like the teachings of Yoga that the road to enlightenment takes time, but each new idea changes you permanently from the inside out.
Her book has a simple principle, it asks you to answer one of its 366 questions once a day with something taken from your life experience. In principal she’s asking you to think. Now how exquisite is that?
You’re not told to run to a mountaintop and shout your answers for all to hear. Oh no, you’re encouraged to keep them to yourself. I like this idea, as no one will ever be able to judge me. It’s like having a secret that doesn’t riddle you with guilt, but builds you up and fills you with pride.
I’ve got the book on my phone, so I can review the questions and my answers anytime and anywhere, this is how it works best for me, but you’ll find your own way, I’m absolutely sure!
