Your brain is constantly engaged in the thinking process. Most of the time you are unaware of the incessant ‘chatter’ going on in your mind because you have tuned it out. This book will show you how to find the space of peace between thoughts.
Reviews for In Between Thoughts
Thank you - a great practice! it is difficult at times - easier when away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. The challenge for me is to incorporate this mindfulness when in ""busy"" mode and having to interact with lots of different people. My wish is to get to the point where my mind can be as settled in the middle of chaos as it is when sitting on the cushion.
The part about stilling your thoughts and trying to enjoy every moment without any past memories was a very fresh thought It also was very useful to read about how many random thoughts our mind has every minute and learning to recognize that.
This is really truly interesting! Off late I've been doing a lot of reading along these lines..The Secret; The Ant and The Elephant and more..Living with passion and so on. Its true we have complicated our own lives unnecessarily and lost out on simple happiness. I hope I can get to read more of your book.

Just wanted to tell you that I just bought your book and read it and absolutely loved it! You've really distilled Tolle's message and put it in an extremely easy to read format.
When I went through your book I felt it is stunningly original. It is off the. Beaten track thought wave. It is the way a child thinks after is grown up also. When a child comes to this world it comes with sathyam shiv am sundarama like pure platinum. Only when it comes into contact of so called elders it gets polluted. Your book is natural , original, in a way topsy-turfy. But a great beginning with great potential Hearty congratulations Dr. Aralumallige parthasarathy International scholar and expert in the field of Dasa Sahitya Author of several philosophical books

You mentioned some great techniques which we can all use. I loved your analogy of the swinging pendulum; our minds moving back and forward in time. It helped reinforce for me, the value of being present. I will continue to practice it- the benefits sound very exciting. Cheers
Very Good. It shows how a simple change in your thinking pattern can change your life majorly. I started practicing and found difficult on first day as old habits are difficult to change but gradually, constant practice is showing profound results. Thank you Santosh.
This book highlights how the human brain spends the vast majorty of it's time either in the past or thinking about the future. The author contends that the stress and anxiety potentially caused by these thought processes can be subverted through bringing the mind into the present. The subsequent clarity thus leads to a more relaxed state of mind. The concepts covered in this book have roots in the ancient dicipline of meditation, which has proven itself over centuries. Anyone looking to finding alternative methods for relieving the stress of a cluttered life may find this book benificial.

This is great practice, basically mindfulness... difficult at times but truly rewarding. It's the knowledge and awareness of being caught up and seeing that for what it is, that has been the liberation for myself in my daily life. Thank you for this reminder and the useful tips

The author has made a genuine effort to describe the concept of ""Happy Living"" in a very easy and practical manner. It is a good read for people who often get entangled in the daily complexities of life and forget to understand the underlying concept of a life without fear, anger and frustration. The concept of focussing on our thoughts and to be aware of it to prevent being carried away is particularly interesting. Like the author has rightly pointed out most of the concepts will remain concepts unless and until one practices it in real life.
