Improve Your Thinking

The Illuminator by Rajith Rajappan has been a #1 best seller in the philosophy/reference category at Amazon.  I recommend it as an interesting read for the person who wants to be more focused on the present and the task at hand.  As a person who has lived over fifty years surrounded by a swarm of ideas buzzing around my head constantly, this is certainly a discipline I’ve needed to develop more fully.

My favorite chapter is Chapter 5, which opens with a Theodore Rubin quote: “Happiness does not come from doing easy work, but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.” By remembering times I experienced that afterglow, I can appreciate the rewards that come from really being present in whatever I am doing right now.

I received a free review copy of this book for my honest opinion.  The Illuminator is an affordable investment in your own life.  Improve your intuition, self-confidence, and focus with some basic exercises and principles appropriate for those of any religious faith.
