The secret to enlightenment is a whole lot simpler than you think. Forget the chanting, meditating and expensive visits to ashrams and get back to basics.
The need to find purpose and meaning in the world has become more important to many people in the 21st century, especially with our 24/7 access to information. But just because you can now seek out the most expensive meditation retreats around the world via the Internet doesn’t mean you should. Would it surprise you to learn that everything you need to know to be at peace with yourself can be found without ever having to venture out of your front door?
Welcome to the no BS approach to enlightenment
Meet Joey Lott and Fish (yes, that’s his name). They’re down to earth, back-to-basics guys (Fish is an ex-navy diver), and they are tired of the airy-fairy, flowery approach to enlightenment. Rather, they eschew terms like “spirituality” and are willing to speak simply, directly, and as Lott notes, “crudely” – hence the title of this book.
By stripping away the artifice that surrounds people’s attempts to understand themselves and their place in the universe, these guys offer up their straight to the point approach on attaining enlightenment and understanding by revealing that freedom’s just another word for how to be at peace with who you really are.
Frank dialogue as a gateway to understanding. When was the last time you said what you really meant, censorship be damned?
Lott and Fish aren’t afraid to dig deep. Fish will walk you through his own personal story, sharing everything from his military training to his struggles with alcoholism. And there’s no preaching here. Because unlike other spiritual self-help tomes, Lott and Fish’s book is comprised of direct transcripts of actual conversations between the two of them – warts and all. Their exchanges are stark, unvarnished, and uncensored.
So if you want to follow a path to understanding your place in the world that doesn’t involve subscribing to a specific teacher, guru, or path and doesn’t ask you to bend yourself into a pretzel – literally or figuratively – then read Lott and Fish’s book and take the road less censored by.

"The secret to happiness is to let go of everything - see through every assumption."
Beginning at a young age Joey Lott experienced intensifying anxiety. For several decades he lived with restrictive eating disorders, obsessions, compulsions, and an inescapable fear. By the time he was 30 years old he was physically sick, emotionally volatile, and mentally obsessed with keeping any and all unwanted thoughts and experiences at bay.
At this time Lott was living on a futon mattress in a tiny cabin in the woods. He was so sick that he could barely move. He was deeply depressed and hopeless. All this despite doing all the "right" things such as years of meditation, yoga, various "perfect" diets, clean air, and pure water.
Just when things were at their most dire, a crack appeared in the conceptual world that had formerly been mistaken for reality. By peering into this crack and underneath all the assumptions that had been unquestioned up to that moment, Lott began a great undoing. The revelation of this undoing is that reality is utterly simple, ever-present, seamless, and indivisible.
Lott's books provide a glimpse into the seamless, simple, and joyous nature of reality, offering a glimpse through the crack in conceptual worlds. Whether writing about the ultimate non-dual nature of reality, eating disorders, stress, disease, or any other subject, he offers the invitation to look at things differently, leaving behind the old, out-grown, painful limitations we have used to bind ourselves in suffering. And then, he welcomes you home to the effortless simplicity of yourself as you are.
Not sure where to begin? Pick up a copy of Lott's most popular book, You're Trying Too Hard, which strips away all the concepts that keep us searching for a greater, more spiritual, more peaceful life or self.
