I’ve been busy attending seminars, and learning cool things. While I get my notes together, I’d like to share some second-hand wisdom with quotes for motivation and inspiration. The following quotes kickoff each chapter in “Thresholds of the Mind” by Bill Harris. It’s a worthwhile read. I’ll include the chapter headings so that you get an idea of the content.
I am a huge fan of Harris’ work. Sadly, he died of cancer in 2018. His work has been a huge inspiration, not just to me, but to hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
His flagship program, Holosync, is pretty expensive, but worth it if you can afford it. The full program, all levels, has a 4-figure price-tag around $2K.
I’ll add some affiliate links to some lower cost alternatives below. I am not currently a Centerpointe affiliate.
Without further ado, let’s explore the quotes and chapter headings in “Thresholds of the Mind” by Bill Harris.
At the start of the book, there is a forward and an introduction. However, neither section has a quote, so I will not include them.
The Beginning of an Adventure
True happiness, we are told, consists in getting out of one’s self, but the point is not only to get out – you must stay out; and to stay out you must have some absorbing errand.
~ Henry James
When Meditation and Brain Wave Technology Meet
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
~ Samuel Ullman
Open Systems and the Human Mind
One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The Process of Change
All of what we know is physically embodied in our brains. To incorporate the new knowledge requires a physical change in the synapses of our brains, a physical reshaping of our neural system.
~ George Lakoff
The greatest evils are from within us; and from ourselves also we must look for the greatest good.
~ Jeremy Taylor
There’s a Zen story of an enlightened disciple of a great enlightened master who, upon hearing of his master’s death, began to cry uncontrollably. His followers were shocked to see him cry. “Why are you crying? You’re enlightened. You’re supposed to be beyond suffering. What will people think?”
He composed himself as best he could, and turning to them said, “What can I do? My eyes are crying. They’re so sad that they will never again see this teacher I loved so much.”
Your Threshold to the Future
I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
~T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
After the meat of the book, you will find appendices. The first is The Science Behind Holosync, and the second is Living the Holosync Experience. Neither have quotes, so they are omitted for now.
There’s also a fairly large review section where real Holosync users write about their experiences, and a pitch for the Life Principles Integration Process program. Finally, there is a glossary of relevant terms.
I look forward to sharing some of my favourite parts and takeaways from “Thresholds of the Mind” by Bill Harris in a future post.
Links to Brainwave Entrainment Technologies
Holosync was a pioneer in brainwave entrainment back in the 80s and 90s. They are experts at what they do. The program is deceptively simple for something so powerful.
What I love about this program, aside from the actual audio, are the support videos and emails a customer receives as they progress through the system. Because of Centerpointe’s experience with over 750,000 customers, they have a good idea of the issues users commonly face. These issues are addressed in the support videos and emails.
Holosync also has perhaps the highest price point for any brainwave entrainment program out there. Hey, custom-tailored Armani suits aren’t cheap either!
However, I want to be sure that anyone, regardless of finances has access to brainwave entrainment meditation technologies. Some of these programs let you get free brainwave entrainment MP3 downloads, so try before you buy.
I’ve tested MANY different programs. In the beginning, the program you choose matters far less than CONSISDTENCY OF USE!
If you test these out, I’d love to hear about your experiences. Brainwave entrainment audios have made a profound difference in my life. I know they can help you too.
The Brain Evolution System is a 6-level brainwave meditation program. This program appears most similar to Holosync.
Brain Salon is a series of 6 MP3 brainwave recordings for focus, sleep, relaxation & more.
Nitrofocus is a powerful collection of brainwave MP3s, for increasing focus and productivity.
Sleep Salon is a collection of brainwave MP3s to help you enjoy a great night’s sleep.
Activate any state of mind, just by listening to a special MP3 recording. 35 options available, or get the whole library for one low price.
Short, 12-minute MP3s to give you the whole-brain benefits on a tight schedule.
Caution: consult your doctor prior to use if you have epilepsy or an irregular heartbeat. These programs are not a substitute for medical advice. Never listen to brainwave entrainment audios while driving or operating heavy machinery.
