Short Description of Powerful Mental Development
by Roger Cantu ISBN 1-55212-508-4

In Roger Cantu's book, POWERFUL MENTAL DEVELOPMENT, readers take a journey through the land of power, energy, and awareness. After many years of studying the teachings of some of the most enlightened people in our times, Roger Cantu has created a step-by-step guide to helps us gain control over our time, life, and mind.

"This simple method encompasses an effortless practice of meditation and self-discovery," says Cantu. "This method teaches the readers how to have an alert, poised mind, a happy mind, a relaxed and balanced mind. You
will be more successful at work, in school, and in all phases of being."

The essence of this method is the study of the development of different states of mind and their effects on our awareness and experiences. This type of mental evolution is the main theme in POWERFUL MENTAL

"Mental evolution means to understand and experience the different patterns of your life," says Cantu. "The mental pattern that you are experiencing right now, combined with your past patterns, creates new
patterns that will ultimately affect your future. As you learn to practice POWERFUL MENTAL DEVELOPMENT, you will discover that you too can see beyond the normal level of awareness that most people experience. You will see that we are made up of intelligence and light."

"With the practice outlined in POWERFUL MENTAL DEVELOPMENT, you will learn to still your mind completely, to stop your thoughts from bothering you, and to become more conscious. The curtain of darkness will part and you will find a new life, one you have never experienced before."

POWERFUL MENTAL DEVELOPMENT includes quotes from books by the 14th Dalai Lama, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Rama, Carlos Castaneda, Lama Ole Nydahl and others. The book also includes personal experiences and anecdotes with some of these great teachers.

Some of the topics included in this book are: the journey of self-discovery; merging the heart and mind; meditation techniques; increasing your energy; how to develop willpower; the essence of happiness; wisdom, knowledge and kundalini; career development; mindfulness; stress management; overcoming fears; success in sports; karma -- the law of cause and effect; and personal power.

Iinterview With The Author

Why did you decide to write a book?

My intent in writing this book is share some of the wonderful knowledge that I received from Rama through the years.

What did you learn by writing a book?

I came to the realization that you learn a lot more about a certain topic when you try to explain it to someone else. Going over old notes, books, and memories, helped me to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of meditation and self-discovery.

Do you have any suggestions to help others publish their books?

Write, write, write. Then, rewrite, rewrite, rewrite. When the book is ready, the right publisher will come along.

How do you inspire yourself to write?

Caffeine... It's better to write late at night. If you don't have the time late at night, early in the morning works well too. Have some music in the background. For some reason, I write better when I listen to "Cayman Blue" by Zazen.

Do you have any funny stories about things that happened while you were writing the book?

I wrote the first draft of my book at one of the computer labs at UCLA. My friend Jane used to come over between classes, hang out, and try to read parts of the book before it was finished. It was very encouraging. One day, one of the lab assistants started reading the book over my shoulder and started asking all kinds of questions about meditation and kundalini yoga. He told me that he wanted a copy of the book when I was done, otherwise he would tell the lab supervisor that I was going over the 4 hour a day computer usage limit at the lab.

Do you have anything else that you would like to add?

Writing a book is like having a child. Once it's out there people will see it and you will experience many emotions; excitement, pride, embarrassment, mortification, and a great sense of joy.
