Doctor Mal Mohanlal's book invites readers to embark on a voyage of discovery. It's one that explores the inner space that exists in us all. Humans are composed of physical and metaphysical properties. Most of us are familiar with the basic physical properties of the human body. What is not familiar to the majority of people is the structure of what is termed, our inner space.
A person's subconscious mind is an area little understood. Most people don't acknowledge that this part of their mind plays any part in their existence at all. Yet this part of them plays a significant role in the well-being of their health and outlook on life. Doctor Mohanlal shows how the subconscious can be controlled in a positive way to make one's life journey a more pleasant experience. All of us are present in the material world for a finite amount of time. Influences, external to ourselves, such as war, famine and natural disasters can dramatically shorten our life spans. But overall it is we who are in control of our destiny and Doctor Mohanlal has penned a book that details, in easy to understand terms, how a person can gain that control over themselves.
Perception, how one looks at the world and their place in it plays an important role in how the subconscious is controlled. We all have the ability to change how our culture, peers and families manipulate the image of ourselves. The strongest set of tools to make this change in perception is words. If we keep telling ourselves that we are stupid, no good, dumb, uninteresting and sloth like, then we will never have a positive outlook on life. Most likely we will be what we keep telling ourselves and be quite unhealthy to boot. The first step in pursuing the journey to true self-realization is to talk to your inner self in a positive way. An example in the book is that of a person wanting to give up smoking. That person needs to say to themselves, "What are you doing, don't you want to give up smoking? Throw it away, I hate smoking, dirty, filthy habit." By repeating this phase several times, each time the urge to smoke comes upon them a smoker will change their subconscious mind's perception of smoking. They will see it as a bad thing and stop.
The greatest enemy of our subconscious mind is one's ego. It is an entity within us that concentrates on the "I", "me" and "mine". All the ego wants is instant gratification, it's a self-deception device that knows no boundaries of flattery. To become a human being who is open to new ideas and perceptions the ego must be controlled. Doctor Mohanlal maintains the most effective way to control the ego is to have some insight into your mind and use your powers of awareness and perception.
There have been many books written on this topic in the past, but most of them have been drafted in dry technical jargon. Doctor Mohanlal has crafted a book that tackles a difficult topic in a simple easy to understand way. He deals with how a person through positive feedback to themselves can control their subconscious mind's influence over their physical and mental states. I found the book very informative and can vouch for the philosophy he puts forward. The techniques that Doctor Mohanlal explains to keep ourselves healthy I use myself to keep a positive outlook on life. They proved to be a vital cog in my recovery from chronic fatigue twelve years ago.
This book is one that will serve to bring to people a greater understanding of themselves and how they are reacting to the modern world. It is a book well worth reading and one that can be revisited again and again. I would recommend this book as a must read for all those seeking enlightenment about the human condition.
