CATEGORIZED IN


The Psyche Exposed expands on The Essence of Reality, looking farther and deeper into aspects of life from Four Angles. Perspectives stem from Tom’s standpoint of "Clear Awareness" – seeing life without distorting beliefs – initiated by a mystic experience, expanded through an extensive inner journey: Angle One – How Life Works: piercing insights into Reality’s flow, exposing distortions of awareness by standard beliefs and cultural fallacy. Angle Two – Your Journey: extensive, detailed illustration of large-scale structures of the psyche, showing how each individual projects personal creative power out to real and imagined forces and sources. Tom reveals explicitly how each individual creates patterns in life – and how they must be changed by revising inner roots. Angle Three – Your Path: three critical stumbling blocks on the journey toward Clear Awareness. Angle Four – Past Teaching: in-depth review of western thinking – how we each learn to see the world and ourselves as we were taught. Powerful insights expose fallacy in religion, archaic elements to traditional notions of causality and blatant shortcomings in science. Tom reviews the evolution of western thinking by exploring contributions of great thinkers and visionaries over the ages – what they contributed and WHERE THEY WERE WRONG.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Tosha Holliman's review Jan 26, 14 5 of 5 stars Read in December, 2013 I fount this book very interesting though, I feel that If I weren't an open minded person I would have some trouble with some things. I found the Author a bit self centered and arrogant which was annoying at times. I honestly feel like it will help me wrestle through some of the demons I fight every day and will help me see how I can become a better person. ~ Tosha Holliman, Goodreads

*i received this book via GoodReads giveaway. Thanks to all those that made it happen!* For many years, i’ve been interested in probing the minds of the thinkers that have influenced human societies and retracing the paths that led to where we are today. i’ve perused the work of many philosophers and other thinkers, so i was really anticipating a chance to read a book by someone who thought outside of the scope of standard philosophy. And to his credit, that was what i found. To me, it seemed Nehrer’s ‘philosophy’ basically boils down as such: every inculcated mental construct, belief, and description that you have only acts to further wrest your awareness away from your innate nature. He emphasizes the Oneness of mind and reality, along with the idea that the latter is merely a transumption of the former. In his words, all that exists is “an interrelated interaction of all things whose individual, apparent, “objective” existence is based only on definitions accepted by the observer.” (53) He argues that following the traditional eastern discipline of controlling your thoughts does not eliminate the root of the problem (your inner conflict and the mechanisms which originally produced those thoughts) and only intensifies that conflict. He promotes methods such as self-hypnosis and automatism to find and dispel the root elements that maintain persistent troubles in life. He also summarizes some of the major philosophical movements and offers his critiques of them. Many of the insights that Nehrer presents are sound, and it is obvious that he has an insight that is both perspicacious and well-developed. Unfortunately, i must admit i was very put off by the author’s writing style. i cannot remember the last time i read a text in which the author came off so cocksure and downright arrogant. i had to cringe when i read the sentence “As a member of Mensa, a high-IQ social organization, I frequently encounter smart people.” (310) Frankly, it detracted from his ideas a lot, especially when he went on about how wise he was at various ages of his childhood, how he saw through the ruse of religion at 6 and demonstrated the Bible’s fallibility to his pastor at 12, etc. etc. His swingeing criticisms of religion in particular were ridiculously excessive. i feel it’s necessary to point out that i am not religious in the least, and agree with his belief that religion is not necessary and oftentimes harmful. Like him, i was raised in a strictly Christian household and for many years was sheltered from questioning the notion that God was as real as me. While it’s obvious that religion had to be addressed in order for him to express his ideology, he seemed to take every cheap shot at it that he could, which only served to protract even the simplest of statements. Even more astoundingly, many of these criticisms weren’t even well-formulated, leading one to wonder why they would even be included if they were not meant solely to drive home the point that he does not like religion. These kinds of pointless barbs, along with sections that i suppose were meant to reinforce key points but seemed pleonastic, unnecessarily extended the length of book. In spite of the author’s occasional snobbery and wearying self-reverence of his own transcendence, i found myself underlining passages in this book and taking notes on quite a few topics he presented in a unique fashion. His insights are certainly worth noting, but his contemptuous style of writing began to chafe.(less) ~ Matt's Review, Goodreads

Crystal l w's review Dec 31, 13 5 of 5 stars bookshelves: first-reads This book is unique and you have to have an open mind in order to read it. It explains how we are burdened with everything from our past. In order to eliminate something bad we have to trace it to the beginning which is probably from when we were so little we can't even remember. He has alot of techniques to help you self become a better person and get rid of all of your bad baggage. Everyone repeats bad cycles well with the tools in his book you can break the cycle. It is not easy and it takes some digging. I would recommend this to an open-minded person who is wanting to change themselves for the better or just to clean out your closets. =) ~ Crystal W, Goodreads

There are no authors, experts, gurus, preachers, philosophers, self-help experts, yogis, imams, rabbis, avatars, mystics, scientists, visionaries, prophets or other reflectors on life who are qualified to judge my writing -- because none of them are as intimately aware of consciousness and its manifested reality as this author. ~
