This book focuses on core issues related to human suffering: the mind that doesn’t “Know Thyself,” and the emotions that create terrifying imbalance and unhappiness. The author, a spiritual teacher for over 35 years, details the workings of mind and emotions, offering practical interventions for when the mind or emotions are raging out of control.
The unique advantage of Lozowick’s book, however, is the context in which this material is presented. The author does not dispense the teaching about mind, even though his chapters cover a wide variety of related aspects: such as managing attention, developing self-observation, and distinguishing real “intuition” from self-serving “insights.” Rather, he allows his readers a window into his own mind. He takes us on numerous side trips into past or future. He gets us laughing, uproariously at times. In his meanderings, we recognize the machinations of our own mind. We hear him admit to distractions and fascination, to arrogance, to curiosity and the love of “spiritual” gossip…and, in the next breath, we hear his startling declaration of “surrendering his mind” to God, through the benediction of his own spiritual master, the beggar-saint Yogi Ramsuratkumar. A practical handbook for meditators and anyone dedicated to “work on self.” Lee Lozowick is an American-born spiritual teacher who has taught thousands of people in North America, Europe and India since 1975. He is the spiritual son of the beggar-saint, Yogi Ramsuratkumar.
