f**k it

" Start trying to please yourself more and see what happens." " When we strip away meaning from the things that are meaningful in our lives, that's where we find peace and the divine. " " Relaxing deeply and letting go can resolve any problem." Saying Fuck It is like massage for the mind - relaxing you, releasing tension, giving up on things that aren't working. This title argues that saying Fuck It is a spiritual act: that it is the perfect western expression of the eastern ideas of letting go, giving up and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all). This is one of the most inspirational books I have read this year. It manages to explain a lot of Eastern philosophy so simply; something that many hundreds of thousands pages in many different books have tried to go into so much detail about. When you say fuck it, you are giving up your tension in whatever you are saying it to, and replacing it with a mind open to whatever happens next. And as your psychological tensions weaken, your physical ones start to disappear too. However, what John Parkin does so particularly well is provide the narrative of the "Fuck It Method" in a humourous and care-free way; brilliantly echoing the very concepts he's trying to teach. And beneath all the profanity and saucy jokes is a huge amount of knowledge that people in the East have been doing for years. If you have spent forever looking for the right self-help/meditation/spiritual book then I'd hugely suggest you go for this one and experience a refreshing change from the usual "I can change your life" bore. And if it doesn't work, say fuck it and move on.
