I'd been searching for something meaningful and lasting in my life for many years; I love Eckhart's Power of Now and everytime I get down in the dumps, I get on my bike and climb up into the hills with it in my ear. When I come back I'm 99% better, but his advice of, ..."always say yes to the present moment..." doesn't have the resonance to really stick, even though I wish it would.
"Shift" has given me the hope that I will be able to stay present and switch out of the uncomfortable anxiety that I've suffered with since puberty; a reeling mind anytime I have to perform under pressure with someone watching me has been the norm for nearly 40 years now.
I know there is a honeymoon period to many things in life, but I feel that this beautiful book has given me so much ammunition to battle my habitual way of negative thinking, which is so deeply engrained. Loch, thank you! I feel like a new chapter of confidence and clarity filled with awake awareness in my life has begun.
