Under the Bodhi Tree: a Guide to Writing Your Own Self-Improvement Story
Under the Bodhi Tree: a Guide to Writing Your Own Self-Improvement Story Summary
Please go read the descriptions of 10 random self-help books and then come back here to read the rest of this description.I mean it. Go!When I did that test I found that most books used words like ‘simple’ or ‘easy’ or ‘practical steps’ to describe the method they are selling.You and I know better.Real growth is HARD.Modifying behavior is NOT a practical way to create permanent change.In ‘Under the Bodhi Tree’ I examine 5000 years of expert advice to try to understand why the self-improvement industry provides so little lasting improvement. The answer is not easy or simple but it is knowable. It has to do with the fact that each person’s path to ‘vulnerability’ or ‘peace’ or ‘success’ or ‘happiness’ or ‘love’ is as individual as the influences, experiences, choices, traumas, desires, mistakes, and needs that got them to this moment in the first place.Our subconscious defense mechanisms are entrenched, making it impractical to will them away with slogans, mantras, or positive thinking. Instead I talk about ways to identify, listen to, and diffuse them. The process must be done gently, especially where childhood trauma is involved. Examples and exercises are provided as a jumping off point.By sharing with you the significant events of my past, my failed attempts at healing, and the raw, intimate truth of my story I will show you a behind-the-scenes look at how every self-help book came to be written. I hope to convince you that it was the ACT of discovering and embracing their truth that brought lasting change to the authors’ lives. It was developing the practical steps that united body, mind and spirit; not the steps themselves.The Buddha did it siting under his Bohdi tree. Dale Carnegie did it selling bacon and lard. I did it sitting in a jail cell. Millions through history have charted their own path to truth and healing.And so can you.

What is audiobook and how does it work?
Audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to rather than read. Audiobooks can be exact word-for-word versions of books or abridged versions. You can listen to audiobooks on any smartphone, tablet, computer, home speaker system, or in-car entertainment system.
An electronic book, also known as an e-book or eBook, is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices. Although sometimes defined as “an electronic version of a printed book”,some e-books exist without a printed equivalent.
E-books can be read on dedicated e-reader devices, but also on any computer device that features a controllable viewing screen, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
