Description

Looking at our past 4,000 years (from astrology, Lakota, Chinese, Mayan & Maslow perspectives) we can see our future, the orgatronic village. From that, we can understand why we don't really fit into this changing time and how we'll best find our right path, in a way that best serves ourselves and society.

With exercises and case studies from his workshops, you'll quickly find who you really are. What makes Philip's book different, and a cut above the average, is not that it is based upon his personal experience, or even that he suggests that "we find out who we are by being who we really aren't", but that he provides practical exercises - he shows readers how to apply the insights and techniques that have proved helpful to him and others in their efforts to reclaim their freedom. Philip does this with an astute sense of humour, wisdom and encouragement.

Philip's articles have always been refreshing and amusing to read as he combines both the serious and humorous sides of life in a blend of words that only he would dare to write. Some of his insights and philosophies are similar to other authors I have read in the past, but he has a few new thoughts as well. Philip certainly has a "way with words" and his new book is easy to read and full of deep and meaningful questions, but the difference with this book is that he also includes simple exercises to help you find the answers! It's all well and good to read about someone else's great insights and hope to learn from their experiences, but Philip knows we must experience it ourselves and he wants us, the reader, to learn from our own life, not his.

The Story Behind This Book
As a country boy from New Zealand, I found myself commuting to work in London, as a corporate trainer. The commuting was my most depressing and eerie of experiences and I wondered how people coped with the daily drudgery, as cows to the slaughter each day. The job was fascinating but the secrets I had to keep were more than I could handle ... then my mind created a story of a man and a woman, trapped in their boredom, secrets and intrigue and how they found thenselves at the centre of political, criminal and commercial intrigue ... and the book was born.

Philip’s articles have always been refreshing and amusing to read as he combines both the serious and humorous sides of life in a blend of words that only he would dare to write. Some of his insights and philosophies are similar to other authors I have read in the past, but he has a few new thoughts as well. Philip certainly has a “way with words” and his new book is easy to read and full of deep and meaningful questions, but the difference with this book is that he also includes simple exercises to help you find the answers! It’s all well and good to read about someone else’s great insights and hope to learn from their experiences, but Philip knows we must experience it ourselves and he wants us, the reader, to learn from our own life, not his.

Philip includes some of his own experiences, some will make you laugh and others will make you cry as you recognize your own life in his words and you will realise that we aren’t so different after all. We all have our hopes and fears and judge the present by the past, but we can still be a part of a brighter future. This book will inspire you to take that first fearful step of your predestined journey called life. It will help you to find out “who you really are” by recognizing “who you really aren’t”.

We do not have to accept everything that we read as truth and we all have our own philosophies on life, but Philip Bradbury’s book will ask you questions you may not have even thought of asking yourself. We also all have our own life journey and Philip’s book helps us to find out not only who we are and who we want to be, but also what we may encounter along the way.

This is clearly a book to recommend to your friends. It is full of inspiring words and insights that Philip may not consider to be New Age but as I see it, we are living the new age, the age of enlightenment and he has given us a guide for the journey.

Review by Jill Bonner, Insight magazine, Australia

What makes Philips book different, and a cut above the average, is not that it is based upon his personal experience, or even that he suggests that “we find out who we are by being who we really aren’t”, but that he provides practical exercises - he shows readers how to apply the insights and techniques that have proved helpful to him and others in their efforts to reclaim their freedom. Philip does this with an astute sense of humour, wisdom and encouragement.

Philip suggests that our primary purpose for being here is to discover who we really are. Most of us are pretty confused about this - we have been programmed to believe that other people know our hearts better than we, and for the sake of being loved by others, we adopt the perceptions they have of us. These perceptions, suggests Philip, are usually based on fear. Self-empowered people cannot be enslaved by fear however, because they know what their own rules are. They know this because they have learned to listen to the whisperings of their own hearts.

Once we have taken this first brave step, says Philip, the universe will magically step in to synchronise events, people and assistance. At the same time he suggests that we always check our own inner knowing before embarking on the bus to somewhere, especially when someone else is driving.

What Philip offers is practical advice about how to stay on track during the process of empowering ourselves, and he teaches by asking us to ask questions about ourselves and what we really want. If you feel like you are lost, says Philip, you are already on the path to finding out who you are because “admitting you are lost or confused is the first step to becoming found”. Continuing on the path means listening to our hearts, and being still until our hearts are moved. In other words: If you’re in a rut, stop digging; and, when you don’t know what to do, do nothing. Taking our freedom back from our perceptions about who we are, and reclaiming our original intention for being here, is about unclouding our vision.
