Tired of trying to attain spiritual perfection?
Do you feel under pressure to dedicate your life to the pursuit of spiritual perfection? Do you struggle with the popular notions of
abstinence and non-attachment as the only possible means of enlightenment? Are you tired of worrying about the karmic consequences of every
decision you make? Relax! In Don't Change A Thing, Joey Lott shares a simple truth which will make your life infinitely easier.
Can I really stop worrying?
Yes! Whilst many of us are deluded into believing that spirituality is a real and noble pursuit, Lott presents the view that the pursuit of
spirituality is not only futile, but also the cause of much suffering; in fact, it's nothing more than a sham which keeps us constantly seeking
more when all along we are perfect as we are. He argues that spirituality is a fictional cure for a fictional problem, which means that you can
stop worrying and relax! " . . . relax, let go, enjoy your life, and eat some cake. Just saying."
So how do I achieve perfection?
It's simple. You don't! You can't achieve what you already are. Lott teaches us to let go of all our preconceptions and fears; "The discovery
of yourself as you are is the discovery of yourself as true freedom." There's no need to worry over feeling anxious, or angry, or experiencing
sexual urges or indulging generally in bad habits. None of it matters. You should welcome all experiences. The behaviors we're taught to fret
over are nothing more than a fiction that we shouldn't concern ourselves with.
Want to know exactly how to free yourself of this fiction? "How do you discover yourself as you are? How do you neither resist nor indulge?" -

About the Author
"The secret to happiness is to let go of everything - see through every assumption."
Beginning at a young age Joey Lott experienced intensifying anxiety. For several decades he lived with restrictive eating disorders, obsessions, compulsions, and an inescapable fear. By the time he was 30 years old he was physically sick, emotionally volatile, and mentally obsessed with keeping any and all unwanted thoughts and experiences at bay.
At this time Lott was living on a futon mattress in a tiny cabin in the woods. He was so sick that he could barely move. He was deeply depressed and hopeless. All this despite doing all the "right" things such as years of meditation, yoga, various "perfect" diets, clean air, and pure water.
Just when things were at their most dire, a crack appeared in the conceptual world that had formerly been mistaken for reality. By peering into this crack and underneath all the assumptions that had been unquestioned up to that moment, Lott began a great undoing. The revelation of this undoing is that reality is utterly simple, ever-present, seamless, and indivisible.
Lott's books provide a glimpse into the seamless, simple, and joyous nature of reality, offering a glimpse through the crack in conceptual worlds. Whether writing about the ultimate non-dual nature of reality, eating disorders, stress, disease, or any other subject, he offers the invitation to look at things differently, leaving behind the old, out-grown, painful limitations we have used to bind ourselves in suffering. And then, he welcomes you home to the effortless simplicity of yourself as you are.
