I’m enjoying this book by Robert Scheinfeld, Busting Loose from the Business Game. I’ll write a fuller review in the near future.
This book is nonduality for regular guys. Take your basic guy who’s working for a living, a guy who’s into sports, family, his friends. A guy who can’t figure out how to live like his rich boss who definitely isn’t any smarter than he is. A guy who doesn’t know or care about spirituality or anything in any depth except maybe golf, football, or hockey or his work, his car, or his outdoor grill. This book is nonduality for that guy. It’s not really a (stereotypical) girl’s book. It’s a guy’s book with references to tools, drilling, and sports.
It’s a radical book. Scheinfeld gradually builds up to the confession that business is made up. Not only business and every aspect of it, but your entire life, your work, your family, everything you value. Scheinfeld shows the reader, step by step, and with great patience and practicality, how to stop “pushing the river”, how to let go and allow … existence or whatever you want to call it … run things.
The author says to live your life reactively. Let the world unfold and respond simply and directly. He shows you how to do that. Scheinfeld admits that when you begin this process of busting loose from the business game, or the game of life, you could expect some difficult challenges and that the process could take two or more years to stabilize.
I still have a couple chapters to read, but I like what Scheinfeld has written and the world of nonduality or self-realization he is putting together.
I recommend visiting the Amazon site and “looking inside” the book. You can read the introduction, but more importantly read the index to see the depths this book strikes:
