One-Minute Meditation on Four Words: Living Fast? Live Better. Fast! is a nonfiction self-help book written by Sebastian Dackow. While many are familiar with the basic concept of meditation, most envision, or are accustomed to, a traditional practice that may involve repetition of a word or mantra while in a comfortable position for an extended period of time. While meditation is a marvelous way to achieve relaxation and a state of well-being, many do not have the time or aren’t willing to make the time to practice meditation. Dackow’s book presents a different way to meditate wherein he shows how one can meditate in as little time as a minute, and it can be done anywhere, even while commuting or waiting on a line. You can be standing or walking, which implies that you can also meditate with your eyes open. Dackow reveals the four words that define his meditation and explains how they are used. He also shows how to use the phrases in a 12-day program.
Sebastian Dackow’s self-help book, One-Minute Meditation on Four Words: Living Fast? Live Better. Fast! sounded intriguing to me. I’ve been a practitioner, on and off, of Transcendental Meditation for many years, and I love meditating and how good it makes me feel. However, while the prescribed twenty-minute twice daily sessions don’t really take up that much time, there always seems to be some pressing issue, task or distraction that leads to my putting off my sessions for another time. I’m very impressed by Dackow’s take on meditation and like his concept of an abbreviated meditation session. It’s a lot easier to fit these short sessions into even the busiest day. I like the words he’s selected for them and feel the frames he places those words in are inspired. His guided imagery for each of the phrases is also excellent, and it made starting to meditate right then and there irresistible. What more could you ask for? One-Minute Meditation on Four Words: Living Fast? Live Better. Fast! is highly recommended.
