When living a normal life means dealing with mental obesity

Don’t you ever wonder why you can’t just switch your mind off?

Don’t you ever wonder why you succumb to worry or stress or struggle?

Don’t you ever wonder why life isn’t a cool, happy, content adventure all the time?

See I used wonder all the time why I couldn’t be present and happy all day, day in, day out.

What was going on? What was I doing that meant my mind went mental?

What was I doing when everything was easy? How could I have that more?

I think for some people they just consider these ups and downs normal.

BUT sometimes - don’t you ever consider that normal just isn’t normal??

What if there was so much more to be had than “normal”?

I get so passionate about this I want to shout it from the rooftops.

There is so much more to be had. Don’t settle for less!!

What humans consider normal is just mental obesity.

Fat, lazy, channel surfing, couch potato minds.

The mind, and how you use it, is at the core of everything you do. It effects everything.

If the average human exercised their mind just a little bit it would be a lot more friendlier, a lot more stable, a lot more able to deal with the challenges of life.

It would start to become a ally, not a hinderance. A source of peace, not a source of angst and drama.

And when I say exercise, I don’t mean hard work.

Meditation and mindset if probably more about having a simple tool, and consistency.

The hardest thing you will find about my method is finding the time to sit down every day and close your eyes in a comfy chair (hint - not really that hard).

I want to share with you a bit of an email I got from Bernard a few days ago …


“I’ve gotten more peace. More laughter. More joy. Relationships that are more real, more honest, more open. The ability to be fully present with my partner and kids, which was something I’d craved but didn’t know how to do - I’d spent a long time in my head. A more creative, authentic life.”


Isn’t that cool? I love hearing from people who’ve learnt to Ascend. All of them, all of them, if they follow the instructions find a quality of life well beyond what they used to consider “normal”.

If you want more than normal - if you want an end to mental obesity - find a way to learn. Scroll down to the PS for details of a course here.

If you’re happy with the status quo, then just do nothing and get the same old, same old normal lardy brain.

If you already know how to Ascend - let this be a reminder to prioritise your practice. Make use of the community around you too - you know how great it is to plug in, however you can, in person or in the Facebook group, on Insight Timer … however, do it.

Excellent! So, here I raise my coffee to a live lived in pursuit of the not-normal.

Have a great day, and keep your Peace. It’s one of the most precious things you have.

The course here in Richmond, North Yorkshire is 15-17 April (we begin 7pm on the Friday).

I’m giving you guys advance warning so you can get yourself together. Let me know if you are interested in a place by emailing me, before I open up registrations.

We can only take 12 you see - otherwise I start to “lose” people, I can’t make sure you’re getting the attention you need.

Distance isn’t a deal - we had a girl come from Sweden for the last course. Close to train lines. You can stay at the center too - plenty of bedrooms.

The price is £200. A bargain when you consider it covers the weekend, repeating for FREE anywhere in the world, and a lifetime of follow up and support. You have a question 12 years from now? No worries - you can tap into the Ascension community of teachers and practitioners and get the help you need.

Let me know if you are interested.
