Can You Find the Treasure Buried in Book II?
It's been almost five years since Book II was first published. In this time, I've struggled with a mystery.What makes this book so hard to grasp, and why do so few people get it? Was it written so badly? Is the content too obtuse? If so, then how have I managed to use this content to change the lives of the people I sit with and even some people I meet only once?
For a long time, the only clue I had was the single thing all my clients have in common. They all tell me, when asked by others what we do in therapy, that they cannot say. They all tell me they know something happens that's different in that their lives permanently change. But despite me constantly trying to teach them what I'm doing, within minutes of leaving my office, their minds lose access to what I've said. In some way, this seems similar to what it's like to wake from an important dream and be unable to recall it.
Finally, somewhere near the end of Book III, I solved this mystery. And while I mention this solution briefly in Book III, I predict, like the rest of my work, it will likely go unnoticed. Ironically, like all things in Emergence, the solution was in plain sight all along. I'd even unknowingly introduced it in depth, in Book II, albeit applied to human nature; to who we are. But in truth, this same pattern applies to everything we try to learn, including to how we become who we are.
Will you be able to find the solution to this mystery—why it's so hard to retain my ideas? Remember, I mention this solution in Book II and in Book III, I expand on it a bit. Moreover, once seen, your mind gains access to everything you've wanted to learn.
Curious? Then your mind is in the right place. Good luck and good journey.
