THE MOMENT
A Practical Guide to Creating a Mindful Life in a Distracted World

by ACHIM NOWAK


“Crystal clear and deeply affecting all at once. An inspired roadmap for creating a boldly lived life.”
¾LeGrande Green, 4-Time Emmy-winning producer, The Oprah Winfrey Show

“Takes the mysticism out of mindfulness and shows us how to reclaim the simple pleasures in life.”
Tom Asacker, author of The Business of Belief



What if there was a way of knowing our moments more richly and more deeply as they unfold? What if we experienced more memorable moments in any given day? How might this alter the experience of our lives?

That is the tantalizing premise of Achim Nowak's book, The Moment (New Page Books; December 21, 2015; $14.99). It introduces us to four simple keys. The keys are entirely common sense and therein lies their beauty.

Return to experiencing the world with all of your senses.  Learn how to tune into prajna wisdom - the wisdom that talks to us as a moment unfolds. Discover ways of receiving and wave-riding energy. And reap the rewards of making time stand still.


The Moment is a compulsively readable book. Instead of urging us to do more and work harder, The Moment shows us how to rediscover a childlike delight in the world. Apply the four keys, and sumptuous moments will suddenly pop up all around you. You will instantly experience more success in business and in life. You will know the infinite pleasures of living in the moment.
THE MOMENT is divided into 4 Keys:
Key #1: Awaken the Senses: As we more keenly know all of the senses, we uncover a more sumptuous experience of the world. We look at how actors train to be more sensually attuned. We investigate the connection between the senses and emotion. And we celebrate the moments that brim with layers of memory.

Key #2: Crave Meaning: As we activate our ability to instantly know meaning, we discover a deeper appreciation for moments as they unfold. We become mindful of how prajna talks to us. We notice how meaning shows up within the mini beats of our days. And we clearly see how the stories we tell ourselves inform the meaning we find.

Key #3: Wave-Ride Energy: “Wave riders” are folks who sense the energy of a moment and choose to ride the wave. As we seize the energy of a moment, we experience the thrill of momentum in our lives. We discover how moments of discomfort propel us into life-changing aha moments. And we appreciate the power of extreme events, when circumstances unfold so rapidly that we have no choice but to ride the wave.

Key #4: Make Time Stand Still: Two fundamental choices make time stand still: We slow down, and we fully surrender to present activity. We observe how practices like meditation and the chi disciplines facilitate a slowdown. We find a new appreciation for the ordinary and the mundane. And we see how the moment we fully immerse ourselves in any activity we receive the gift of flow.

The beauty of deploying the four keys? The notion of time suddenly no longer matters.  We are more fully in the here and now. That is the ultimate beauty of a momentous life.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
