Then one day, as I was walking in our neighborhood park pondering over these questions, I suddenly got the answers. A profound wisdom sank in. Things became crystal clear. You could call it enlightenment!
With this awakening, I felt a huge psychological load lift off my shoulders. I experienced a true psychological freedom. Now I feel a sense of joy and peace inside me which is hard to describe in words. I have much more physical and psychological energy than I ever imagined possible at the age of 55.
My outlook on life has completely changed. Now, I fully experience every moment of life. I truly live in the now. I am joyful and peaceful all the time. I stay completely free of stress, even under quite stressful situations. I call it the ultimate freedom.
For example, four years ago, I encountered a serious illness. I lost a lot of weight and looked like someone from a concentration camp, as my wife bluntly told me one day. During this time, I was admitted to the hospital twice, but doctors still could not figure out what was wrong with me. The “old me” would have been very anxious, disappointed and depressed over this whole dreadful situation, but fortunately, this illness happened after my enlightenment. I walked on this frightening road with such a peace that even I was amazed at myself at times! Not for a moment was I depressed, disappointed, angry or anxious. Slowly, this medical situation resolved, without any medications. I believe my inner peace and energy provided immense healing power from within.
In my personal life, my wife, daughter and friends find me calmer, happier and joyful. Now I go to my clinic to truly help my patients and make a reasonable living. My memory is sharper than ever. I don’t even forget where I put my car keys anymore. Whatever activity I am involved in, I do it better than I did before, but always with a sense of calmness and peace.
I don’t create stress for myself or for anyone else! Actually, people around me feel peaceful as well. Now I have realized that true peace has a ripple effect and it starts from you.
It breaks my heart to see so many people living a stressful life and not having a clue what it’s all about. That’s why I was compelled to write this book. I want to share my experience and wisdom with you. Wisdom is power. By using this power of wisdom, you can be free of your stress, right now. Yes, it is that simple!
In “Stress Cure Now,” I show you the path to the ultimate freedom from stress. Walk on this path and you can be free of stress as well. My path to a stress-free life is based on logic, the most powerful tool we humans have. When I examined my life, using logic, I was in for a big surprise! My whole outlook about life changed dramatically. It’s as if I woke up from a deep psychological sleep. After this awakening, everything became crystal clear about:
The origin of stress
The dynamics of stress
The solution of stress
In this book, I will share with you my earnest and sincere observations about life. I’m not trying to convince you. In no way I am trying to upset anyone’s feelings. What I describe are my observations based upon logic. I am not judging or criticizing anyone, or any group of people. I do not have any affiliation with any political party or religious organization. You may or may not agree with me, but please think; and think logically with an open-mind. After all, it is your life. I am simply inviting you to take a fresh look at it with logic.
In order to get the most benefits out of this book, you need to read it in its entirety. While reading the book, you may find your mind popping with questions, judging some parts of the book to be right, exciting and interesting while others as wrong, boring and repetitive. It's all fine. Just do yourself a favor and keep reading the book with an open mind. Write down your questions. Most likely you will find answers in the later part of the book.
The book has been in the making over the past five years. Since my enlightenment, I would have periods of what I can describe as "spontaneous outpouring of original thoughts." I would write these down. Then I decided to compile these "episodic writings" into a book form. The book went through only minimal editing, because I wanted to keep the original thoughts intact. That's why the book does not follow the strict rules of "book writing."
Lastly, a word of caution. Please do not stop taking any medications on your own. You need to discuss it with your physician. In no way I am trying to diagnose or treat your medical or psychiatric condition. I am simply showing you a new way to "cure stress" and live a “stress-free life.”
