How much practical time do we usually devote to the general art of being human? This practical guide to the self-healing of consciousnessit is both a spiritual psychology and a contemporary manual of the inner lifebegins by laying out very clearly the unhealthy, unfree nature of today's consciousness. Methodical self-observation leads to discovering the key to the liberating consciousness from its habitual blind spots and automatisms: the realization of the universal primacy of cognition and the universal availability of its ground, the free attention. Through attention, a person who practices the author's exercises begins to expand the range of his or her possibilities of understanding and doing. The exercisesbased on the Buddha's Noble Eightfold Path and Rudolf Steiner's cognitive spiritual pathlead to a new life in which superconscious intuitions gradually take the place of superconscious formations. This new life is a universal human life of improvisatory, living thinking: a life of presence, pure joy, which is health for human beings.
