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" :

"This book is dark, deep and brilliantly written. I'm very moved by the author's candidness about mental illnesses, a subject that has become extinct in our conversations and dealings. Here is a person who reached deep inside himself and spilled his soul out onto each page... and he did it so eloquently. I applaud him for bringing me to tears."

  • Great approach to a lengthly theme

    This was a conscious compact way to cover few topics about the main idea addressed. Definitely worth reading, sharing and soaking information and knowledge from. Thank you for sharing !

    This book is a solid introduction for individuals who are at an all time low with themselves or rather their thoughts. While it does present interesting ideas, the perspective here is what matters. None of these ideas are meant to be revolutionary. It is meant to be a foundation to begin a healing process. Not the best work I have read, but definitely worth reading for a life long process of healing deeply burned wounds.

    This book made me realize that I am normal just as I am. I’ve learned to let my thoughts be. Don’t be afraid because that will be what you attract.
