Thank you so much to Erin Gold for organising things and opening the store for the event. It was an honour to share the teachings from my new book “Living a Life of Harmony – 7 Guidelines for Cultivating Peace & Kindness”. Here are some of the content highlights:

  • Why I believe bookstores are important
  • “The Process” – The infinite process we’re all part of
  • How we impact each other
  • Separating ourselves from others
  • We can’t prove this existence is real
  • Dreams
  • Are we part of a simulation?
  • “The Process” has Guidelines
  • The truth in religion and philosophy
  • Consequences of causing harm
  • Karma
  • Why “bad” things happen to “good” people
  • How to embrace the “good” stuff and accept the “bad” stuff
  • Mindfulness+ is mindfulness plus the spiritual dimension
  • How “The Process” corrects you
  • What happens when you don’t learn lessons
  • How to deal with unskilful people
  • The 7 Guidelines:
    1. Honour the body
    2. Be present, bringing awareness and acceptance into every moment
    3. Act with kindness
    4. Understand the truth and communicate it skilfully
    5. Do only what needs to be done
    6. Harmoniously obtain and retain only what you need
    7. Apply the guidelines to your digital device usage
