We tend to react to life instead of respond to it but when you're able to recognize when negative thoughts arise and choose to not act on them, not to say them, not to believe them and throw them into the mindfulness gap, you can create this whole different version of yourself. - Cory Allen

Now Is the Way: An
Unconventional Approach to Modern Mindfulness
The modern world has overwhelmed us. Anxiety rates are high and we’re more distracted than ever. We're suffering. But it doesn’t have to be this way. By learning how to control our minds, we can control our lives. In this book, I offer a fresh guide to mindfulness for you–a person living in the strange and beautiful times of today.
What makes this book unconventional? I’ve built a new bridge between knowing and doing. Now Is the Way will not only give you mental clarity, but also reduce your anxiety, help you find your purpose, and increases your focus. It will teach you how to stop reacting to your life and start living it. Right Now.
"We live in times that support higher thinking while at the same time we live with a brain that was designed for safety and reaction. The dance steps between the two arenʼt taught in traditional school. Encapsulated into each one of us is the limitless potential and a lifelong lesson of learning and loving. It takes the heart of a child and the mind of a warrior to live life well." - Cory Allen
"We are not our thoughts. We are our thoughts put into action. You get to observe your thoughts and choose which ones you want to put into your world. You don't have to be perfect at this mindfulness practice either; just recognize when you're about to go down a dark road of inner conversation." - Cory Allen
"We tend to react to our life instead of respond to it. We all want to be that person who is free of judgment and is more kind, patient, present, loving and is able to connect with the people in their lives at a deeper level. However, there are these emerging negative qualities that lead us to dwell on these negative thoughts and criticisms. Those ideas will rise and pass through because there is no space and we tend to react quickly to them rather than observe, think, and respond to them. However, by being able to recognize when negative thoughts arise and choosing to not act on them, not say them, not to believe them and throw them into the mindfulness gap, you can create this whole different version of yourself." - Cory Allen
