In this lecture, Dr. Hawkins provides a lot of insight about the ego, about emotions, and about being “wronged” and the grim satisfaction we get from all that. The payoff gets bigger as we evolve spiritually, and then the tempter of the ego appears to constantly test us. He explains what the source is and why it stays with us.

'Out of the secret world I once knew, I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for reality. Then back to the imagining, and to the desk where I'm sitting now.' The Pigeon Tunnel, John le Carré's memoir and his first work of nonfiction, is a thrilling journey into the worlds of his 'secret sharers' - the men and women who inspired some of his most enthralling novels - and a testament to the author's extraordinary engagement with the last half century.

A tasting menu of dozens of delicious episodes in the author's life, retold with every ounce of his usual eloquence and dramatic flair, but with the familiarity of an estranged uncle, returning home. Loved it.

This is a short book, but worthy of repeated listening. The practices recommended are skilfully illustrated with simplicity and relevance. Adopting the ideas has helped free me from mental blocks in both creative and business activities and positive results are beginning to show.
