My recent post Architecti et usus meditatio- Vitruvian Echoes in Contemplative Practice
I guess the risk of self-deception is greater in this case than in normal voice dialogue, but if I can access those genuinely "core states", maybe it could work.
Anyway, the Core Transformation book is ordered. Can't wait to dive in. Thanks for your post.
I mean, it's hard to imagine a time when people weren't spouting "follow your bliss," "you can't have an omelet without breaking the eggs," and "say 'yes!' to life." It's a testament to Campell's influence that these phrases have become business and personal development clichés!
Plus if Johnson is cutting out some of the rhetoric, the branding, the good & bad design and the hype and setting up these authors' ideas on an even playing field, we're all better off.
How many amazing ideas are pitched in hideously designed books in shamefully unselfconscious language? How many shallow ideas are posed in well-written expensively designed books?
