From the Author
"I'm not going to do this again". These words dictated my indecision to write another book until I was introduced to, and started practicing Mindfulness Meditation. I had written the original version of Now O' Clock for a specific reason. This time my reason was to expand on basic thoughts about Time, Life, Living and to include my own experiential perspective on Mindfulness with respect to Time, Life and Living. I also include more detail about my personal stories in a way that provides relation and reflection.
Time spends us and the beast controls us. Now O’ Clock is the inspiring journey toward the enlightened mindfulness of “being” in the moment and staying there long enough to be awakened to the mindless and stressful pace the Beast has set, and how, in insidious ways, it controls our daily lives. We already know the Beast as a “what,” not a “who.” Who, is what it has conditioned us to be.
Garcia shows you how to retake control and become better able to set your own pace and choose the life you want to live—not one manufactured for you by the Beast. Treating Time as the constant element it is, may be the key to opening the door to that life.
Then there is the special concern Garcia has for those whose duty it is to serve and protect. For them, returning home at the end of their shift or tour of duty involves dangerous levels of stress endured by them and their families. Now O’ Clock is especially written with them in mind.
Garcia also shares beautiful life stories that are intimately personal, miraculous, spiritual, and wonderfully inspiring. Then there is the ultimate reality we all must face. This reality is the most powerful and intriguing paradox of life and living.
Open Now O’ Clock and start your journey, now.
Now O' Clock; Being Mindful .. it Always is.
