We all long for peace, love and happiness, for they are our true nature. But how to realise them? And how can we live them in the realities of our everyday lives?
In a simple and readable style, Leo brings the ancient Eastern wisdom teachings of Self-inquiry (Jnana Yoga, or the “yoga of knowledge”) and Heart-centred Mindfulness into the marketplace of Western life.
This book is not just a set of technical instructions, nor a book to read once and forget; the words point to principles that are alive and imbibed with timeless wisdom.
This is a book about who you feel yourself to be, because …
- Who you feel yourself to be determines the quality of your life
- Who you feel yourself to be determines the quality of your relationships
- Who you feel yourself to be determines whether you will live constrained by an imaginary prison of your thinking mind – or will Break Out of Your Mind and enjoy unlimited freedom
The Truth is you are alive as timeless Being before, during and after the life of your physical body. Let those words sink into your Heart and read them again and again. Feel into the the living reality of the principles they point to, like signposts. They are the voice of freedom, which is calling you home.
Through the simple and practical methods of Self-inquiry and Heart-centred Mindfulness you can discover the joy, peace, love and freedom that lives deep within the very essence of who you are.
Living free from identification with your thoughts means that …
- Your mind will become clear, focused and imbued with infinite intelligence
- Your relationships will become full of kind acceptance and be a source of joy
- You will know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free
Freedom is simply a choice. And this present moment is the only moment of choice there ever is. Just one new choice, one small step, could change everything …
Imagine if the teachings and practices in this book were the most treasured gift’s you will ever receive. How would that feel? What new choice would you make, now?
Awareness (aka “mindfulness”) is always and already present Here and Now. And it can outshine the veils of thought and emotion that have hidden the truth of who you really are.
When approached in the simple and effortless way described in this book, every situation in your life, every problem, every challenge – even physical and emotional pain – becomes a portal to the profound clarity, emotional freedom, and blissful peace that lives within..
The by-products of practicing Heart-centred Mindfulness include:
* Clearing your mind of confusion and doubt
* Enjoying increased confidence and self-respect
* Transmuting emotional pain into calm clarity
The truth of who you really are is the person who, deep in your Heart, you would most love to be – and who has been veiled from your awareness by nothing more than thought-clouds.
So much suffering stems from imagining a thought to be true and representative of actual reality. Fortunately there is a way in which you can “break out” of this imaginary prison of limited thinking.
This book points the way to freedom from all that is false and unreal. It offers a number of simple methods that will enable you to quickly break out of identification with your thoughts.
You’ll then be able to relax and rest as the living awareness that is, like the Sun, always shining prior to your thoughts.
You’ll discover a profound clarity that lives closer to you than your heartbeat, closer even than your breath.
And from this clarity you’ll be able to take control of your thinking and put yourself at the helm of your life, steering a course to the destination of your Heart’s greatest love, your greatest joy.
The Barefoot Doctor – best selling author and Taoist spiritual teacher, says
“I love this book. It stands alone as a succinct exposition of the transcendental approach to being present in the Here and Now, with the emphasis on Being rather than doing. “Being in the Now is an elusive skill and explaining how to attain it even more so. Leo has done a masterful job of it here, while managing to give of himself fully from the Heart in threading his own story into the narrative. “Reading it, you feel you’re with a great friend as well as great teacher and I recommend it highly.”
Miranda MacPherson (formerly Holden) – founder of the London Interfaith Seminary and author of Boundless Love – says
“Break Out of Your Mind! is an absolute gem. It articulates the timeless wisdom of non-dual spiritual teachings in a personal and accessible way that is deeply relevant to the challenges of everyday life.
“With a great down-to-earth style full of practical exercises gleaned from both his own depth of self-inquiry and years of working with people to help loosen suffering, Leo brings the reader deeper into the stillness of Being. Read it and reap!”
