I ve been under a fair bit of stress lately Nearly a year into self employment work has become steadier sometimes than steady Although I love it I ve finally come to understand why people yearn to meditate With my mind racing with mostly unproductive worries and nags I ve been thinking that I should try mediation to calm the tumult and find flow againThe problem has been finding a guide to meditation that isn t complete granola claptrap I loaded Eckhart Tolle s The Power of Now onto my Kindle but gave up almost immediately His meanings were almost completely opaue to me and I didn t have to fortitude to stick through it So when Dan Harris popped up on The Colbert Report where he was a elouent guest than most on the show to promote his book 10% Happier I figured I d give it a tryWriting the above paragraphs I ve come to appreciate Dan Harris book a little bit It s hard to write about mediation without sounding like a complete asshole Dan gave it a fair shot and his book was useful though I never felt entirely compelled by his voice Preci JournalistNews Anchor extrovert and work a holic Dan Harris becomes intrigued by meditation and seeks to cut through the hippy dippy bullshit in search of something practical that he can apply to his daily life He journeys he stumbles but eventually manages to create a mediation practice that fits within and enhances his life He says it makes him about 10% happier What I liked This isn t a life hacking book I was afraid that I was in for another Tim Ferris wank fest but I was pleasantly surprised by Harris respect for the subject matter Although Harris doesn t become a Buddhist he explores Buddhism and the role of meditation therein with care and ultimately decides that while the spiritual aspect of Buddhism isn t for him the mechanics of mediation are useful to him From what I know of Buddhism as a whole this is absolutely kosher though correct me if I m wrongI like that Harris clung to his misgivings about Eckhart Tolle whom he finds a bit too whack a doodle and Deepak Chopra whom he considers to be insincere and sought meditation practitioners and teachers whose practise is deeply rooted in the real world In his wordsAfter months of swimming against the riptide of bathos and bullshit peddled by the self help subculture it was phenomenally refreshing to see the ego depicted with wry witAmen brotherHe freuently mentions that meditation has a terrible marketing issue in that its most vocal advocates are a bit too crunchy andor otherworldly for the mainstream He suggests several works for further reading which are rooted in science rather than mysticism for folks who would prefer to read about meditation from that viewpointI also found the chapter on hiding the zen to be useful Although I m blogging about it one s self help forays aren t always what you d like discussed in the public sphere It s nice to be able to slip under the radar as a meditator without showing your woo woo ness in public What I didn t like I ll be honest Harris is not someone I d like to hang out with While I enjoyed his journey from bro ish asshole to a self aware being I couldn t really relate on a personal level Honestly even a redeemed Harris seems like a bit of an asshole to meI also wasn t too interested in the extensive personal narrative While I appreciate it was important to illustrate his journey I believe it could have been edited thoroughly As a non USA reader I had never heard of the guy and don t really care about the internal politics of USA news networksMoreover Harris writing is serviceable but his forays into poetic description most often fall flat Take this one for exampleWith the Klonopin on board you could have marched an army of crazed chimps armed with nunchucks and ninja stars into my apartment and I would have remained calmHis asides often devolve to a Barney Stinson meets College Bro level of sophisticationThe real mindfuck though was this almost as soon as he said something brilliant he would say something else that was totally ridiculousWhile other paragraphs head almost into the much maligned Eckhart Tolle territory beholdFailure to recognize thoughts for what they are uantum bursts of psychic energy that exist solely in your head is primordial human error Observations Harris is very much an extrovert Throughout the book I found myself thinking that although I have never really meditated I have already mastered some of the techniues he mentions I think it comes down to the fact that I am an introvert and am very comfortable within my own mind I know how to observe my thoughts and emotions and lean in to them responding rather than reacting I get the sense that for an extrovert the inner mind can be a scary and alien landscape and that a large part of Harris journey is simply getting to know his inner mind Verdict Overall this book was a useful start for my foray into meditation though I ll need to do a lot reading I think This is the book for the everyman and I d like to gain a academic insightWhile the tone was a bit too alpha male and bro ish for me I appreciated the practical look at meditationBonus
