Ranked as the #1 new book on Amazon, Zachary Duncan's "Conditioning: Training your mind for clarity, joy, and effortless flow" explores how to develop emotional maturity through no-nonsense spiritual growth.
Throughout The Horizontal Path series, Zachary shows how simple shifts in perspective can make emotions your best friends (they never leave you and always bring to your attention what you need to know), how to identify and shed limiting beliefs as they come up (inquiring into why you’re feeling a certain way), and what to do once your beliefs are brought to light (adopt new, empowering points of view).
Discover how to use everyday experience to radically transform yourself, develop emotional maturity, shed your limiting beliefs, and accelerate your spiritual growth. This results in less victimization, less fear, more dedication, and more personal power. You will, in essence, become more of who you already are.
MASTER YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES BY MASTERING YOURSELF.
When applied with dedicated and sincere intent, the simple concepts in this primer will direct you to understand:
-The biggest mistakes people make with experiencing emotions, and how to avoid them.
-The subtle yet specific differences that separate those who master their emotions and those who are ruled by them.
-Hidden expectations many hold of increased self-awareness, but never realize.
The mind is capable of wonderful things. But it can only analyze. Any attempt to understand habitually falls to description, labeling, definition, and categorization. Over-reliance on this powerful mechanism leads to fear, anxiety, depression, and a feeling of separation. We are not taught to consciously direct the mind. Instead, the entire architecture and environment of our lives teaches us to invest our sense of self into external objects, situations, circumstances, and events. The habitual courses of our thoughts and subsequent actions is called by many names: trauma, distortion, impurity, and it all comes down to the same thing: Conditioning.
The solution to the near-universal and deeply programmed sense of victimization in human civilization today is to habituate personal agency and acceptance in order to allow the individual to focus on their lives, rather than reliving past scenarios that live on only in the mind, continually projecting happiness and well-being into some imaginary future.
Conditioning provides potent, scalable practices that help you reshape your identity and remove unconscious conditioning. In this book, you will first build clarity on the three types of conditioning: social, environmental, and self-reflection. Once you begin to notice these aspects in your own life, you are provided several perspectives that allow you to reframe your thought process to bypass the ego effect by shaping your perspectives in terms of non-judgmental service: either service to self, or service to others. Finally, you will explore the nature of intent and refine your own as you learn how you can realize in your own life an abiding state of flow through surrendering attachment to the outcome of any action that you take. The most common mistake that the individual makes in modern civilization is to ignore their conditioning.
Our past experiences provide us recommendations on how to believe, what to think, and what to do. This book contains simple, powerful, and portable methods and perspectives that will allow you to build a foundation of increased self-awareness and agency, and provide some of the building blocks of a truly integrated self.
