Seems everyone is getting their production Kasina except me. I guess that’s the trouble with living on the bottom of the Earth, easily missed, slightly to the right of Australia, part of which we are often assumed to be (this being somewhat confusing, as to who “we” represents insofar as that my nationality/citizenship is Australian while my Permanent Residency is New Zealand. As I promised to write a proper review of Kasina when I received my production unit, I haven’t really had much to say.
A long time ago I was given a hefty 3-ring folder full of many short A4 booklets. On the cover are the words “Brian Johnson’s PhilosophersNotes: More Wisdom in Less Time”. The package includes a cute little MP3 player preloaded with a complete content as audio.
There are numerous paths, one per person really, but there are a small number of general vapours of thought. The PhilosophersNotes uses the categories; Modern Classics, Abundance Books, Positive Psychology, 20th Century Classics and Old School Classics. Within each group Mr Johnston provides a summary with interpreted quotes for numerous books by popular authors of the New Age perspective of these categories.
Authors include (following in order of categories)… Eckhart Tolle, Genpo Roshi, Stephen R. Covey, Richard Koch, Wayne W. Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Bill Harris, Brent Kessel, Geshe Michael Roache, Abraham Maslow, William Glasser, Nathaniel Branden, Dale Carnegie, Maxwell Maltz, Ayn Rand, Jose Silva, Carlos Castenada, Krishnamurti, Seneca, Confucius, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Fridrich Nietsche.
The few names I’ve listed gives an excellent indication of the socio-political, economic, moral and ethical principles offered by this particular “vapour of thought”. If it doesn’t, then the PhilosophersNotes are an invaluable aid to understanding a very important part of today’s society.
My sincere admiration to Brian Johnson – an epic reading and summation exercise.
Hmmmph. Just heard a friend in Sydney got his Kasina – it’s just across a little bit of water.
