Description

How can we free ourselves from mental suffering? How can we unlock what the poet William Blake referred to as “the mind-forged manacles” - those unhelpful, unfounded and inflexible habits of thought which keep us from reaching our true creative potential?

This book provides practical advice on how to achieve this.

But it also offers an imaginative holistic theoretical framework for an understanding of the nature of the universe, the psychological history of the human race and the meaning of life.

What Readers Have Said About "How to Be Free" :

"I just wanted to thank you for publishing 'How to Be Free'. It helped me through many hard times that have recently occurred. My self-esteem has been raised because of you."

"This is a book that is full of insight and as a psychology major, I would highly recommend this book for all open minds."

"Opened my eyes and changed my life."

"...it f*****g changed my life."

"This book is dark, deep and brilliantly written. I'm very moved by the author's candidness about mental illnesses, a subject that has become extinct in our conversations and dealings. Here is a person who reached deep inside himself and spilled his soul out onto each page... and he did it so eloquently. I applaud him for bringing me to tears."

"Really loved the book. It made me think, self reflect and take a deeper look at my own self."

"I found your book particularly helpful at a low point in my life... You have given me new hope..."

"Your book has made me a happier person already!"

"...an awesome book..."

    I never finished the book. How dare you try to take someone’s belief in God and try to tell them he doesn’t exists. That’s your opinion. It is not your place to put your views of the world on our backs. You need to seriously think of the harm your doing to people in the name of being free.You have no god because you don’t believe. Go back to school and write something real and stop projecting your crap onto others in the name of money. Money seems to be your God. I do not recommend this book.

    Thank you Mr Blow. This book has helped me to continue to move more towards my higher self. To keep in mind I am only a part of the whole and to never try to force change through harsh words only through loving actions.

    "Joe Blow" does an excellent job describing where and why we are the way we are. He does a very good job explaining the self-acceptance required to become individually and collectively happier and healthier. He does very little to explain the possible techniques of changing ourselves. So his ideas are a lamp shining in the dark. He theories why the dark is dark and why we may want to become the light. The journey to become the lamp is up to us.
  • Surely will interest many people!

    This book was pure drivel. It’s written by someone who believes that he is un-important and nobody as he states but his book can save the world. He has no historical data psychological data or scientific data to back anything stayed. He downplays Christianity and Jesus Christ while quoting Him saying that he’s inspiring. Both can’t be true. These were but the ramblings of someone who what’s self justification for being an ting the the way they do.
