Where the Time Flows

Let the past be your wisdom.
Let the future be your intention.
Let the present be your life.

From the Book ‘A Lean Mind’

The reality is that there is no linear time.

There is no past. There is no future. There is only the present moment.

When we think about the past, what we are actually doing is that we select a memory from the mind, and we replay it.

When we think about the future, we are only using data we collected from the past to project it into a later present moment that literally does not exist yet.

Sadness vs Joy

Sadness completes joy,
as it makes us realize
what actually gives us joy.

From the Book ‘A Lean Mind’

Sadness has value.

Do not abuse sadness.

All the emotions are complementary.

Do not be afraid to be sad. Emrace it. Enjoy sadness.

But remember to let it go before it overstays its welcome.

Read more about emotions in ‘A Lean Mind’.

Enjoy all your emotions,

Live in Peace

“Make peace your standard emotion.
Make it the home of your mind.
Live in peace.”

From the Book ‘A Lean Mind’

Aren’t the mighty mountains exposed to turmoil?

How do they manage to stay this peaceful when tackling all the storms, rains, and snows?

How much do they experience other emotions than peace?

What if, unless we can replace other emotions with peace, we make peace our standard state of mind, going back to it as soon as we let go of other emotions?

Do not only rest in peace. Be as peaceful as a mountain.

Live in Peace,
Ozan

It’s All in Mind

“You live your life inside your mind.
It is not you who sees or hears,
it is your brain that processes signals
from the sensors in your body.
Everything that you think you
see, hear, feel, think, believe, and love
is a product of your mind.”

From ‘A Lean Mind’

Everything that you experience is only a product of your very own mind.

What we receive from the universe are nothing more than signals received through our body receptors. It is only data that is highly processed and transformed into visuals, sounds, and sensations by the mind.

Perception is indeed an interesting topic that takes a leading role in ‘A Lean Mind’.

P.S. It has been crazy 24 hours and I am overwhelmed by the reaction from you. I don’t remember exposing myself to this much attention before. However, your support overrides the anxiety of it. Thank you.

All the best,
Ozan

A Lean Mind is Out Now!

Hi,

I am thrilled to share the release of ‘A Lean Mind’ with you.

A Lean Mind is a love letter from me to humanity – in a unique way.

This is a book that strives to challenge the deepest core beliefs and give inspiration.

It acknowledges the ‘lean’ approcah that is widely used in the industry to increase efficiency. What I believe is that the mind has processes. Everything we think and do are manufactured in these mind processes through the emotions and the core beliefs. By implementing lean approach to the mind, we can, indeed, increase the efficiency of it.

All the best,
Ozan

Change the World

“You cannot change the world alone. You also cannot change others. But you can change yourself and inspire others. And this can change the world.”

From the Book ‘A Lean Mind’

These were the words that led me to taken on a long journey to go ahead and write my ideas into a book. They made me get up from my bed in the middle of the night to start typing.

And I cannot wait to share these ideas with you.

All the best,
Ozan
