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.”

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:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
