Every day, we take in data from the world around us and store that data in our intellect. Then, without conscious awareness, we listen to that data--a process we call "thinking"--and use what it tells us to inform our decisions. But living our lives this way means always living in the past, and it limits us more than we think.
In The Inward Outlook, psychologist Laura Basha shares how to discern this habitual way of thinking from the innate wisdom and common sense that we all have available to us at all times. Once we can see this distinction between personal thinking from the past and in-the-moment, impersonal, diffuse thinking, we are awakened to the conscious choice point, which allows us to make choices with awareness and to release judgment of ourselves and of others. We then consciously create ourselves to be the best version of ourselves we can be: our authentic, powerfully creative, compassionate selves.
A powerful guide to accessing one's own innate health, well-being, and wisdom, The Inward Outlook is an accessible exploration of a principle-based paradigm that educates people in the role thought plays in creating their experience of reality--and a road map to cultivating inspired focus, accomplishment, and peace of mind in one's life.
