A recent Gallup poll in the US found that 70% of those in work didn't enjoy their job. In his latest book, John C. Parkin brings the power of saying "F**k It" to the subject of doing what we love. In this highly entertaining and motivational book, John sets out to prove that when we do what we love, we're actually more likely to be happier, healthier, wealthier, and more successful. He addresses the significant blocks that people experience when they consider doing what they love, including: "Doing what you love is for time off, not work", "Doing what I love would be selfish", "I just don't know what I love" and "I could never make a living from doing what I love". Through no-nonsense ideas, fascinating facts and motivating calls to action, John brings us from pessimism to inspiration, so that our thoughts become powered by "F**k it, I can't waste any more of my life", "F**k it, I will find a way to make this work", "F**k it, I will do what I love". F**k It: Do What You Love is not just a book: it's a step-by-step map to get every single person to spend their precious time on this planet doing what they love.
In this book we meet with the modern sage, U.G. Krishnamurti, and listen to his penetrating voice describing life and reality as it is. What is body and what is mind? Is there a soul? Is there a beyond, a God? What is enlightenment? Is there a life after death? Never before have these questions been tackled with such simplicity, candour and clarity. In these unpublished early conversations with friends (1967-71), U.G.discusses in detail his search for the truth and how he underwent radical biological changes in 1967. Preferring to call it the natural state over enlightenment, he insists that whatever transformation he has undergone is within the structure of the human body and not in the mind at all. It is the natural state of being that sages like the Buddha, Jesus and, in modern times, Sri Ramana, stepped into. And U.G.never tires of pointing out that 'this is the way you, stripped of the machinations of thought, are also functioning.'
