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 :

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

"Opened my eyes and changed my life."

"Here is a person who reached deep inside himself and spilled his soul out onto each page..."

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

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

About the author

Joe Blow is the pseudonym for a man who, though currently happy and high functioning, has had a long history of mental illness, including endogenous depression, bipolar disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. His writing is the product of a lifelong struggle to integrate flashes of insight and powerful symbols which appeared to him, often during what we might define as psychotic episodes, with observable reality and a rudimentary knowledge of science by appropriating useful concepts from the work of such iconoclastic thinkers as Wilhelm Reich, R. D. Laing, Keith Johnstone, William Blake and Oscar Wilde. If asked whether this approach and this conceptual framework have provided him with a secure foundation for emotional stability, happiness and flowering creativity, Blow would reply, “Well, so far so good.” He also writes humorous erotica under the pseudonym Aussiescribbler.

    Not worth the time. The logic used to explain psychology is based on the debunked theory of evolution. If you want real truth look somewhere else.

    I believe I have an open mind, and so exploring new idea is interesting.

    I kept an open mind till he started conflating veganism with pre neurosis and all manner of flights of fancy in regards to early human psychology, diet, society etc. He presents all this as fact like a person proselytizing their religion, which he not coincidentally appears to be atheist.
