"Internalizing is better than Intellectualizing"


This book is as little as I can do in expressing my gratitude towards these giants in my life. They who saw me for who I am and now made me for what I am today. This book speaks about my mentor Dick McHugh who has mended me in so many ways, this book falls short if I had to tell you the lessons taught by him. His journey in India and how he was introduced to NLP and Gestalt. He has been such an inspiration who has led me explore my visions and helped me convert them into reality.

"The more I resist

The more I persist

The more I accept

The more it transforms"

Why did I write this book?

For anyone who asks “who Dick McHugh was to me? ”He was my mentor, my guide, my inspiration, my guru, my ode. I forever am in awe of his magnetic personality, his intelligence, his calm, his composure, how he dealt with relations. I always told him I want to age as gracefully as him and, he would simply smile. He was an ocean, where one could simply pour in any amount of grief and sorrow. People having conflicts and value mismatch would come through, pour their hearts in and receive a resolution. He led me to explore my own dark side, to know what my answers are and to accept myself the way I am. I learned to listen without judgment. I am not worth to be the dust of his feet. To his lotus feet I will always bow to, with respect with adoration with a sense of awe.
