The Art of Conscious Balance: Breaking Free From Your Conditioned Self is an inspirational memoir by Santosh Nambiar. Growing up in a tiny village in the southernmost state of India, Santosh had a first-hand view of the casteism and class differences prevailing in Indian society. After moving through a string of homes, including two different continents, Santosh had a cushy job and seemingly cozy life in Perth, Australia. But soon, his life turned upside down when he was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2002. Although it turned out to be a false alarm, Santosh had an illuminating epiphany after his close brush with death. He realized that chasing materialistic goals filled him with anxiety, anger, fear, and baggage he needed to shed. To truly flourish and blossom, he needed something more than just intellect. He wanted Universal Intelligence in his life.
A poignant and introspective journey toward self-discovery, The Art of Conscious Balance is an enlightening memoir that couldn't be more relevant for the hectic times we live in nowadays. Santosh Nambiar tells his life story and the lessons he learned through personal experiences that molded his life into what it is today. Nambiar provides readers with valuable insights and practical applications of Universal Intelligence to help them lead fulfilling lives as they chase their dreams. The narrative is crisp and concise, and I breezed through the pages. The most impressive aspect of the book is that it is more of an approach to life in general than making drastic changes. Highly recommended.
