Choices and Illusions
Choices and Illusions
This fascinating book holds an important key. Whether you’re interested in the science of thinking and beliefs, how your own mind operates, how others control your thoughts, why things just don’t work out for you, how you can create the life you’ve always wanted, how you can realize your true potential, how you can find peace, or, on a grander scale, how you can help make the world a better place, this book provides insights for all. Simply reading it will open your eyes to new worlds of possibilities. You’ll change once you’re exposed to the illusions most live under and by, and putting into practice any of these very simple teachings will open the door for you to achieve your highest potential.
Choices and Illusions tells the story of one man’s journey into the workings of the human mind and our reason for being. The adventure is every bit as exciting as the best scientific discoveries. Eldon Taylor’s approach is pragmatic, and his conclusions are inspirational and soul enhancing. Along the journey, you’ll hear fantastic stories of divine intervention, see why you think and do what you don’t wish to do, and understand the very clear message that it’s never too late to be happy and succeed, regardless of your past actions.
Eldon says, “Many believe that self-help and self-improvement is about rags to riches, failure to success, and so forth, when indeed it’s the beginning of a journey into self-discovery. Inside every human being is an eternal truth and a life purpose. Using our mind power is simply starting the engine on that path toward highest self-actualization.”
Released in 2001, the film, "Josie and Pussycats" centers on an all-girl band comprised of four members whose music is laced with subliminal messages in an effort to influence the minds of a young, impressionable demographic through pop-culture. When the latest band of the year, "DuJour" inexplicably dies in a sudden plane crash, Josie and her two friends are immediately signed with Mega Records and are seen as their record label's newest "pop princess" of the music industry.
In the movie, the record label acts in alliance with the government in order to sell the propaganda of the government within one the most influential channels of society: music. The CEO of Mega Records explains that it is her job to insert subliminal messages into music in order to manipulate youth and steer them towards certain trends. The label takes advertising to the next level by concealing hidden messages into the artist's music which disseminates pre-conceived notions directly into the subconscious minds of those listening.
In the newest edition of his book, Dr. Eldon Taylor sheds new light onto the influences which often manipulate human's subconscious stating that what people think to be their own original thoughts may not even be original as they are influenced by what is around them. In addition to five new chapters, the author provides stories and illustrations in order to further explain the steps on how a person can fully regain thoughts devoid of the influence of external forces such as technology, media, values, and attitudes. His book teaches people how to find their own song.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
