The Now—this moment—is the true source of happiness and peace and the key to living a fulfilled and meaningful life. Embracing the Now is a collection of short essays about the Now that can serve as daily reminders of the deepest truths. Full of clear insight and wisdom, it explains how the mind keeps us out of the Now, how to move into the Now and stay there, and what living from the Now is like. It also explains how to overcome stumbling blocks to being in the moment, such as fears, doubts, judgments, misunderstandings, distrust of life, desires, and other conditioned ideas responsible for human suffering.

From Embracing the Now: “By becoming aware of what else is showing up in life in this moment besides thoughts, you can begin to really live in this moment and respond to it naturally, uncluttered by your mental commentary. You are in the moment but without the ego’s influence on it. Spiritual freedom is when the voice of the ego no longer dominates and colors the landscape of life. Rather, it is one small aspect of it—one other thing that comes and goes in this landscape. This voice becomes impersonal—something in the landscape that has no more personal relevance than the bird’s song or the temperature of the room. It’s experienced, but not experienced as ‘you.’ Then it’s possible to experience the Experiencer—the true Self that is behind all life and behind your life. This Experiencer is in love with life, and when you let it live you, you are in love with life, and your actions and words express that. Freedom from the ego brings a relaxation into the true Self and the possibility of being that in the world instead of the ego.”

"Embracing the Now is startlingly clear. On the mainstream nondual spirituality front, Gina Lake is a contender for top author/top teacher honors, along with Eckhart Tolle. Both she and this book have what it takes.” –Jerry Katz, author of One: Essential Writings on Nonduality

5.0 von 5 Sternen Like the pealing of a bell - clear and beautiful 22. September 2008
Von Namaste - Veröffentlicht auf
Gina's written a powerfully clear book about living from presence (as Eckhart Tolle calls it) or essence as she does. The formidable opponent on such a path is of course ego. But ego is not to be resisted or fought against or repressed or denied. Instead, Gina explains how to accept the ego as it arises while still seeing through its various tricks for pulling one out of presence. She details the various emotions, judgments, fears, denials and mind games that are common tools of the ego in clear and easy-to-understand language. I find Gina's books to be as helpful as Eckhart's in the journey to living from presence. With this book in particular, I had an `aha moment' as Oprah calls them around my emotions. Although I had learned not to give attention to the stories and dramas of my mind, I was still paying untold amount of attention to my emotions. I felt them to be somewhat closer to truth because they seemed so intuitive and natural. I know realize that they are simply thoughts translated into bodily sensations and deserve no more analysis or attention than the mind. Of course, essence uses emotions such as joy or love or peace or acceptance and even sadness to guide us towards fulfilling our life plan with the eventual goal of awakening. It does not, however, use grief, depression, anger, jealousy or other such negative emotions.
Gina outlines the ego's mechanisms so clearly that it becomes difficult not to recognize, accept and thus heal them in oneself. All of this is in the service of greater peace, greater joy, and eventual liberation. The messages may be conceptually simple but in an ego and mind-dominated time and society, they are easy to forget. I enjoy reading Gina's words to remind me of what I know in my own heart to be the shining truth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Show How Living in the NOW Is Possible! 22. September 2008
Von Kathy Dannel Vitcak - Veröffentlicht auf
If there were a way I could just click and put this book in your cart and have it fast on its way to each of you reading this review...I would! It is that important. As many of us, I have devoured Eckhart Tolle's work and was intrigued and dazzled by its brilliance...but maybe a little intimidated. This book helps us understand Be-ing in the NOW and making it work! I have read it twice in one weekend and am ready to call Gina for a private reading, as this work is just that amazing.

She digs right to the core of the EGO and helps us understand how it works (and doesn't work) and how to tame the Ego! I actually gasped at some passages as it was so clear now. It was one huge AHA moment after another as I turned each page.

Not only does Gina give us the workings of the ego, she also helps us learn how to tame it and lead a life...yes IN THE MOMENT!

All weekend I have had a big grin on my face and my heart feels ready tio burst with contentment at finding this book.

Please, click and get it...your life will be enriched...mine certainly ahs been. I thank you, Gina.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding New Book By Gina Lake! 3. September 2008
Von Laura J. Katleman-prue - Veröffentlicht auf
If you like Byron Katie or Eckhart Tolle, don't miss this extraordinary book by Gina Lake. It really tells you how to lead an awakened life continueing where those wonderful authors leave off. It gives the hopeful message that we can stop suffering once and for all and tells us that not only is it possible but that's what we're all here to do.

I am blown away by "Embracing the Now." After reading all of her books and doing many private sessions with Gina, I thought smugly, "What more can she say on the subject that I haven't already heard?" The answer is: a tremendous amount. This book is filled with innumerable insightful gems that are so easy to apply to ever day life - on trusting life, coping with feelings, loving your work, and finding work you love. The new short essay format made the book very easy to digest because it distilled each topic into bite sized pieces. This book was so incredible that I'm about to reread it to make sure that I haven't missed anything!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Key to Living From Your Heart 18. August 2010
Von Randall Linder - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I highly recommend all of Gina Lake's books. I was severely depressed, anxious, having suicidal thoughts, and frustrated with therapy when I stumbled upon Gina's books. The Universe brought me her books at just the right time and in just the right manner and thankfully, I was open to receiving them. Through her books, I have learned how to be grounded in the moment; how to be aware of my thoughts and the "egoic mind" with its obsessive, negative messages; and how to notice and listen to my intuition, and change my entire outlook on life. I am also starting to realize the "oneness" of all life. Having before never trusted anyone or anything, I am now learning to trust the Universe and the divinely unpredictable nature of every day events which makes life so wonderfully rich. The tremendous fear I used to feel is now subsiding. Gina talks about the importance of meditation as a spiritual practice which has helped me to restart my meditation practice which in turn helps me stay in the present moment. Refreshingly, Gina's books are free of religious dogma and rules and are available to all readers regardless of religious/spiritual backgrounds and belief systems. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Find Happiness in All Circumstances 14. September 2008
Von R. de Looff - Veröffentlicht auf
You want to be happy at all times? You do not want conditions influence your happiness?
The book of Gina Lake is a clear guide to reach this goal. The book is about letting go of the ego, about letting go of your ideas of what should be, about letting go of your resistance to what is. The solution to real happiness is not to go after the longings of the ego, but the solution is contacting your true self, the pure awareness underneath ego and the mind.
That pure awareness has an undertone of happiness always whatever the situation arising in the Now is.
In this book Gina helps the reader to develop this state of unconditional happiness. This can be one of the most important books you have red because it helps you to remain happy whatever the form of the Now moment takes.
It helps you to realize the vision of books like the Power of the Now of Eckhart Tolle in your daily life, especially when life gets tough from the point of view of the ego.
The book is easy to read and practical. The language is clear and to the point. And most important of all the book is transformative and gives you the tools to live from the state of awareness rather than from the state of ego. I highly recommend this book. It has given me many tools to recognize the ego better and live in a state of awareness.

Awareness participates in life by being aware of life, but unlike the ego, it doesn't try to control or change life. Awareness just is, and it allows whatever is to be the way it is, for the time being, since life is always changing into something else. &quote;
