Prologue

If you are profoundly satisfied with every aspect of your life – every moment, every day – and wish for no deeper peace, understanding, or fulfillment, don’t read Undoing. If you are not, read on.

This book is for those of us caught in the pace of life and work we have come to know as “ the way of the Western worl.” NO matter whether we life in the west, If we fit this type, we tend to be highly productive, goal-oriented, and responsible citizens dedicated to the supremacy of the logical mind and to progress at all costs. Many of us, however, have now and then taken a pause in the midst of our purposeful striving to ask:

Is all this effort worth it?

What’s the meaning of it all?

Why don’t I feel truly happy and fulfilled?

Undoing address many such questions. The ideas in it are thousands of years old. What’s new is their particular application today’s world. It’s also a book about shifting perspectives. By the time you’ve finished it, you’ll see what I mean. But for now, try a simple exercise.

Imagine This

You are sitting in a chair. The chair is in your living room. The living room is in your house. The house is on the 120 block of Oak Avenue, which is in the northestern section of Grand Junction. Grand Junction is situated in the middle of the lower peninsula of the state of Michigan. Michigan is in the Midwest, which spans the middle section of the United State of America. The United State is part of the North American Continent, which is located on the globe called Earth. The Earth is part of the Solar, Which is part of.

Has your perspective shifted from that of simply sitting in the chair? This whole book is about shifting your perspective – by shifting the way you think about yourself and the world. You’ll find that the thoughts you think can literally make or break your life.

You may wonder why the book is titled Undoing. The word, you, say, can have some pretty negative connotations.

“This will be my undoing”

Precisely In this book, you’ll be looking at a way to accomplish the undoing of the you who gets in the way of your own happiness and fulfillment. By getting the current doer out of the way, you’ll unfold a new, powerful entity from within you who will transform your life – at work, at home, and at play.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
