Pay Attention

Pay Attention? Sit still, Buddhists say, stop thinking. I add my own twist, saying Duh over and over, on the out-breath. But meditation doesn't work for me.

A day in the inner and outer lives of a college professor, blogger, divorced father, thinker, and yearner. What would it feel like to wake up inside the head of someone who writes about science for a living? John Horgan, acclaimed author of the bestseller The End of Science, answers that question in his genre-bending new book Pay Attention, a stream-of-consciousness account of a day in the life of his alter ego, Eamon Toole--a blogger, college professor, and divorced father. This work of fact-based fiction, or "faction," follows Toole as he wakes up in his rented apartment in upstate New York, meditates with the mantra "Duh," commutes via train and subway to an engineering school in New Jersey, teaches a William James essay on consciousness to freshmen, squabbles about Thomas Kuhn with colleagues over lunch, takes a ferry to Manhattan and spends the evening with his bossy, Tarot-reading girlfriend, Emily, on whom he plans to spring a big question. Throughout the day, Toole struggles to be rational while buffeted by fears and yearnings. Thoughts of sex and death keep intruding on his ruminations over quantum spookiness, the neural code, the Singularity, and free will. Pay Attention is a profane, profound meditation on the entanglements of our inner and outer worlds and the elusiveness of truth.

If you want to be happy the first thing you have to do is to Pay Attention and Be Alert. This will enhance your ability to see things you could not see before. You will see that we are spiritual beings having a human experience, and that we are, at the same time, mortal and immortal, human and divine. You will also realize how interconnected and interdependent we all are, and this new conscience of our divinity and oneness will liberate you from all your fears, allowing you to live a happy life. Piero Falci was a successful executive at the top of his professional career when an unexpected downturn took him through difficult times and a deep spiritual transformation. During this journey that lasted seven years he paid extreme attention to the voice within and carefully recorded what was being revealed to him. Those life-changing revelations are the core of the book Pay Attention! Be Alert! Today, Piero enjoys a peaceful life centered in the present moment and finds great delight in sharing what he has learned. He is committed to helping others achieve a higher consciousness, convinced that a widespread awareness of our divine nature and oneness is what will pave the way for universal peace and unity. Pay Attention! Be Alert! is the spiritual guide that reveals the route to happiness.

It turns out that many of the things our fathers teach us by word and action are truths more profound than we can imagine. It is often after we struggle to make our own way in the world, thinking we do not need our father's advice, that we realize that we have become our father. We discover ourselves saying things to our children that our father's said to us. If we think deeply about this phenomenon we notice that the words of our fathers reflect profound universal truths. Our fathers perhaps did not even know why they said these things to us. We often do not even now why we say these things. They just sound right. It is a Voice that arises within us and there is a resonance in the saying of them. We feel connected not only with our fathers but with universal Father. We have the feeling of entering the sacred.

This book has been needed for a long time. The main reason the liberals (collectivists/socialists) have made such gains in recent years is that a majority of Americans just “don’t pay attention to politics.” Some are proud of it, as I used to be until I had an epiphany: “Even though I paid no attention to politics (because of the apathy I was frustrated by in the sixties), politics WILL pay attention to ME.” Ignoring politics is like ignoring that pickpocket while he steals your wallet. We MUST start “paying attention to politics” or politics will ruin us, maybe even KILL us. My own SON says he “has more important things to do” (talk about a prophet having no respect in his own home town). The fact is if we don’t start paying attention to what our politicians and bureaucrats, never mind our judges and Supreme Court Justices (appointed by our politicians) are doing to our rights and the Constitution itself, soon there will come a time when we have NO rights and the Constitution will be as dead as the liberals wish it to be.

According to the Buddha, the path of kindness is the path of happiness. Now Sylvia Boorstein, nationally bestselling author of It’s Easier Than You Think, has taken the 2500-year-old practice of developing the qualities of a compassionate heart—the core of the Buddha’s own practice—and made it accessible to all. Pay Attention for Goodness’ Sake is the first book ever to guide Western readers on the path of the Buddha’s Ten Paramitas, the Perfections of the Heart. Boorstein combines traditional Buddhist teachings and parables with stories from her own life, as well as easy-to-follow meditations, to show how the practice of Mindfulness—paying attention in everyday life—can lead to these perfections that all of us strive for, including Generosity, Morality, Wisdom, Energy, Patience, Determination, and Equanimity. When we take on this practice, Boorstein notes, “our vision becomes transformed. We see, with increasing clarity, the confusion in our own minds and the suffering in our own hearts. . . . And we also see the extraordinariness of life, how amazing it is that life exists.” Boorstein’s lively and practical lessons about everyday generosity, morality, making and mending mistakes, the bliss of blamelessness, and other human concerns and frailties, help to clarify our distractions and connect us with our own goodness, “the part of ourselves that wishes it had done differently.” For Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike, Pay Attention for Goodness’ Sake is a cheerful, inspiring book that offers the possibility of a transformed life.

Since 1979 when Tom Quinn and Gene Hoots began investing together there have been a major bull market, a gigantic bubble, two major bear markets, and heart-stopping stock market plunges. Through all of this, the firm has adhered to its investment philosophy. Pay Attention to the Thin Cow is a collection of CornerCap's writings through 2005. While it is a collaborative effort, much of the material reflects the personal experiences of Gene Hoots, a long time observer of the corporate and investment worlds. This is not a "how to" book, but rather a collection of essays that should make the reader a bit more informed about his own investments.
