Everyone’s life is determined by emotions
Everyone’s quality of life is determined by emotions. All our woes, from family quarrels to social clashes and ecological disasters, are the result of automatically activated emotions and lack of the use of awareness. Emotions affect all of our activities, with very specific consequences for you, others, or those around you.
Emotions often lead to wrong decisions that must be regretted later. They make you cling to people, things, ideas, or beliefs. They create values and confrontations but are also a measure of well-being and satisfaction in everything and for everyone. Being guided by the qualities of consciousness is still little known, and dependence of emotions is widespread. In order to feel good, positive emotions are continually pursued in the entire world by the most varied means, and people live without ever tasting real happiness.
Any change starts with you
This book has been written for those who are already looking for a change. As well as for those who do not yet know what they want or who have accepted the inevitability. I hope that the knowledge presented on these pages will spread and that the practical application of this knowledge will contribute to a fundamental change, opening up new doors and opportunities in your life today. By releasing more and more of your autopilot, you discover that you have been dependent on it all your life – you discover that you cannot even use your own emotions, as autopilot has so far activated them for you. All change starts from you. Based on the Art of Conscious Change (AoCC), this book talks about how to change in a holistic and novel way.
Excerpt from the book:
“No-one knows where insight comes from; neither can anyone “make it come.” It just comes. By studying insight as a phenomenon, not the contents of what was received through it, one can discover that it has happened to every human being. From this, it can be concluded that insight as a process is the same for everyone, but the information that comes from insight is different and individual. This brings us to the most ancient source of knowledge that no-one knows anything about. No-one knows its age, scope, shape, or form. Obviously, it has existed before us. It must have been. Everything we know today as humanity actually comes from this source. I wonder what other knowledge it might have? ”
