The Secret Lives of Men - The Ego-Less SELF: Achieving Peace & Tranquility Beyond All Understanding

Chris Blazina speaks with Cardwell C. Nuckols, Ph.D., author of The Ego-Less SELF: Achieving Peace & Tranquility Beyond All Understanding. I'm glad to see a topic like this on a men's site - spirituality is a crucial part of a fully mature and integrated life. I would caution, however, that Nuckols makes it sound easier than it is - many people spend a lifetime making successive approximations to a more Self-led life. It's not a destination - it's a process.
The Ego-Less SELF is a journey of discovery and a return to the deepest truth. It looks closely at the notion of 'spiritual transformation' by first showing you how the ego develops over time to cause suffering in our lives. Once the ego is stripped away, the pathways to the self—heart, mind, and action—can begin to work. With a broad range of spiritual influences, from the Bible to Zen Buddhism, The Ego-Less SELF sets out to deflate the ego to let the true self shine through. You will begin to learn how to get rid of resentments, surrender the ego's unconscious programs for happiness, and employ simple techniques to increase contact with consciousness. The road to self is not about trying to acquire anything but rather the willingness to surrender all of our egoistic ways, thus taking us back to that which we are—the purest self.

Cardwell C. Nuckols, Ph.D., is a partner and board member of American Enterprises Solutions, Inc. An expert in behavioral medicine for over 20 years, he has authored more that 30 journal articles, 14 books and pamphlets, and the bestseller Cocaine: Dependency to Recovery and Roadblocks to Recovery. He has received the Gooderham Award for outstanding contributions to the alcohol and drug addiction field and lives in Apopka, Florida.
