John Sherman presents a clear and coherent view of the actual problem that makes human life seem so unsatisfying, and suggests a simple and revolutionary method to bring an end to dissatisfaction and misery once and for all. This method is so simple that it requires nothing of you but the willingness to look within and notice yourself from time to time, whenever it occurs to you to do so.
Sherman is an independent literary translator. She obtained a Master of Arts Degree in Romance Languages and a Bachelor of Arts in French & Portuguese. She is editor-in-chief at SilentHeart Press.

No expectations are set regarding the ultimate outcome, except that you will be free to live your life without the insane fear that causes so much suffering. 'You will go sane.' There are no promises of fantastic experiences, or mind blowing insights, unless you consider being free from fear a fantastic experience.
Also, there is no sales pitch here, no follow up system to buy to 'get to the next level' or any other 'spiritual path' nonsense. This is not another treadmill of spiritual practice, filled with promises that can't be kept, offered by someone with something to gain as long you 'need' them.
Get this now, start to Look At Yourself today, see how wonderful life can be.
Many thanks to Mr. Sherman for putting this simple approach out there, that directly addresses the fundamental cause of suffering that is generally accepted as normal life.
By the time I finished reading John's book, I realized that "here" - without false beliefs or deep-seated lies beating us over the head and scaring us silly at times - is really all that we have ever wanted. "Here" is everything. And false beliefs are all that stand between us and the ever-present truth that we are complete just as we are.
John's insights are brilliant. He would disagree with me about this statement because he describes himself as a slow learner and ordinary as beans; but no one has ever given me such a lucid and practical view of what is needed to end suffering and be ever-open to the beauty that is naturally, already here.
But in the end, when all was said and done, there were always some loose ends. There were always more things to solve or change in the body and mind. By some accident, I stumbled into John`s message. And altough I really tried to NOT follow his advice (always thinking this can`t work, this is too easy), sooner or later I had to come back to it. I don`t know why, but IT WORKS. I don`t know how it works, but it does. When there is no way out of myself and the whole chaos of suffering of a regular human being reaches a peak, I always come back to what John is patiently saying for some time now. And it always works somehow. I can`t wrap my mind around it. For the first time, I am doing something that my mind can`t understand or fit into its definitions. And it works.
I don`t know if the suffering is totally over and I don`t know when it will be. But if there is something that can help in relieving it, it can be found in John`s book. This is the real deal, for me at least. I would reccomend this to any human being. Thank you, John
While the, how shall i say this, technique could be steeped down into something like one paragraph, the author is very carefull, as well, to pose questions that I didn't even know I had until they were posed....and to tell the truth, the only short coming I felt I found within the book was the author's transition to the question and answer dialouge seemed not as smooth as the rest of the book.
Overall though it was Excellent....Excellent....Excellent
