All humans seek happiness, contentment, success, and meaning in life. This book is an introduction to the practical philosophy of the success-life coach, human potential pioneer, and meditation teacher, Lewis Harrison. Much of Lewis’ system of thought was created through the collaboration of an extraordinary group of educators, professional problem solvers, game theorists, and practical philosophers whom all share a passion for ideas. Known collectively as The Practical Philosophy of Lewis Harrison, this approach to personal development was organized under Lewis’ guidance, but it is in no way, his alone.

This book links and explores my many books, blogs, vlogs (online video blogs), seminar and workshop transcripts which were created over a half-century of study, and exploration. Much of this practical philosophy was created through the collaboration of an extraordinary group of educators, professional problem solvers, game theorists, and practical philosophers whom all share a passion for ideas. Known collectively as Our Work*, this system of ideas was organized under my guidance, but it is in no way, mine alone. This philosophy is dedicated to all those who have worked with me over the last fifty years in the focused exploration, and evaluation of a diverse range of ideas related to human potential, personal growth, effectiveness, efficiency, productivity, self-awareness, happiness, contentment, and living the meaningful life. You will notice that as you read through this book you will come across certain words and terms that may be unfamiliar to you, and which are written in italics following by an asterisk. There words and terms which are listed in a Glossary at the back of this book usually describe an idea that would otherwise take a few sentences or even a paragraph to explain. Terms, such as pattern language, regenerating thought processes, black swan events, probability assessment, the Butterfly effect*, the theory of constraints, critical mass, and applied game theory are terms you will soon become familiar with and which are essential to Our Work.One of the challenges I have dealt with in creating an introduction to my work, and in the work itself, is that some basic concepts may have been over-explained while others are merely touched on. The solution, though certainly not perfect, may be the knowledge that something that truly grabs your attention can be explored further through the internet, specifically on Wikipedia, which flawed as it may be, offers ample footnotes and resources for most entries. The linking of the many diverse ideas that define this practical philosophy, The Teachings of Lewis Harrison*, and
Our Work is a difficult one, especially when it’s being expanded and explored through so many media outlets, the social network, and close to 40 books. In the flow arts, when an individual juggles balls, the path of each ball, from the throw to the catch must be just right. The crossing of the balls in the air can create flow and draw the juggler, and those that observe the juggling into an ecstatic, altered state of consciousness.
