  One of the main tasks of the mind is to fight or remove that emotional pain, which is one of the reasons for its incessant activity, but all it can ever achieve is to cover it up temporarily. In fact, the harder the mind struggles to get rid of the pain, the greater the pain. The mind can never find the solution, nor can it afford to allow you to find the solution, because it is itself an intrinsic part of the "problem."


Well... I should copy all the book here lol

Ok I feel I'm losing my mind, literally. I feel my mind took all the control and power over me and it's going to ruin me if I don't do something about. I look at myself in the mirror and I can see someone getting insane, really. I can see it on my eyes. Since few days I also stop breathing!!! it freak me out.

My mind became overactive, I couldn't stop it and I was sure it was maybe good. Let's make my mind more powerful! I thought it was something smart to do, so today I was reading the news and I saw an article about a book to learn how to control the mind.
"Mental GPS 2.0" by Celia Antonini. I tried to get the electronic book but I couldn't find it, so I evaluated to buy it. I did a research for see the review about the book, then I found another book wich seems good.
"The power of now" by Russell Dicaro. You can get this book on pdf for free. Happy about that because in the bookshop it's expensive. I started to read it and I realized that I became my mind. And I believe that my mind and thougths is the most important thing I have, I try to protect it all the time, and I feel without it I'm nothing. I'm very afraid to lose my thoughts!
I didn't end to read the first chapter and so far this book shows me how lost I'm but also give me some tips to stop thinking, something that I could never do. I wanted to try it asap, so I took a shower and I put focus in that... the sound of the water, my breaths, the warm on my skin, my body, my hair.. I didn't let my mind flight, I put all my attention on my 5 senses so my mind was quiet... finally the silence!!!! The muscles of my faces got relaxed instantly So fast I left the shower and my mind started working again I could feel all the tension on my face again

The predominance of mind is no more than a stage in the evolution of consciousness. We need to go on to the next stage now as a matter of urgency; otherwise, we will be destroyed by the mind, which has grown into a monster

Some quotes after cut... )

I knew it will happens. I slept around 12 hours last night and was hard to get up today. And now, even when I took half pill I couldn't sleep. Isn't like I did nothing today, i cleaned the house, I did the washing, cook, shower, etc. I just was sitting a short time to do English homework. I wanted do workout but today is the rest day and tomorrow I start the week 5 of BBG and it seems will kill my legs


After dinner, I did the washing up and I did my nails. Then i came to bed even when I'm not sleepy. I read The Last Battle for 30-40 minutes. I found that if you select a word in the book, Kindle show you differents options like translate or wikipedia. Love it!
I stopped reading now and I will forced myself to sleep, I want get up in 6 hours. Let's see if it happens 😞

I didn't play this video game but I would like playing it.
The story is very interesting but sometimes the details are very poor or are described very briedly.  In fact, it is a short book.
Anyway, this story is easy to read and probably I will read the other books of this saga since I can get the eBook very cheap in Google Store (less than 4 USD)
3 of 5 starts for me

Almost midnight. Mike is watching a game in the TV. I came to bed ready for sleep a little more early than usual. Nope... this isn't goin to happens. I checked a game in my cell phone, then Instagram, then twitter. I skip facebook. I open LJ and started to read randoms entries from random people. But LJ app sucks and it stop working all the time. So.. sleep seems a very good option, right? Not for me...
Mike wanted we read together books. I love that idea. Then he told me what book he wants read first. I installed Kindle on my computer and on my phone and I bought the book. To be honest I prefer reading paper books but I could not get it in the store. And since I'm about to move to a new flat better I dont get more stuff to move.
The book is called The Last Battle by Stephen Harding. It is about World War II. Mike loves that kind of books. I never read it before and I'm not sure that I will like this genre, but I want give to it a chance.
So I started to read it this week on english, what is still hard to me understand all and make me slow reading. So far i like this book. I'm on page 20 and Mike didn't start yet. So... guess what i will do right now instead sleep????
