In our article, “Lifeway Stores Says OK to New Age Sympathizing Authors,” we stated that Ken Blanchard has recently endorsed a book called Three Deep Breaths. The book is written by Tom Crumb. Of the book and Crum, Blanchard states:

I have known Tom Crum for over twenty years. He is one of the finest human beings I have ever met. Three Deep Breaths contains the essence of his life’s work. Read this book and let Tom help change your life.

To understand Tom Crum’s spirituality, his article, “The Art of Meditation” will help. Here is an excerpt from that article, or you may click the title and read the entire thing:

In all of these disciplines, the practice is not to force yourself into a state of peace, it is simply to acknowledge the mind’s thinking nature and to relax into center so that you can settle down into deeper levels of thought, to the source of thought where the vibration level [alpha] is most powerful. It is achieving a place of deep connection and tranquility, where you are accessing a field of intelligence that is far greater than that derived from the ego or intellect….

Whether you sit in a chair or on the floor, you should begin by getting into a centered state with the spine straight and comfortable, in a position that allows you to easily be with the vehicle being used: the breath, the mantra, etc.
