    Hi All,

    I've just watched this really great interview with SteveO which encompasses some of the points within his new book.

    Enjoy folks,

    Be blessed,

    That's a damn good video. I love that Steve O emphasizes the need to gain that deep down true belief in TMS and that sometimes it takes time to learn that. Thanks for sharing, Mike.

    Thanks for sharing this, Mike. I liked how they emphasized that you can't let working through the pain become the center of your life because then you are focusing on your body again. It's a tough balance, but an important one.

    I also like that he's continuing to bring up the terminology "The Mindbody Syndrome." I like that Dr. Sarno adopted it. I think people will find it much more understandable than "Tension Myositis Syndrome" as an expansion of TMS. I think we lose an awful lot of people who visit the site and don't know what the latin words at the top are supposed to mean.

    I agree that MBS is more approachable and more easily understood. Just curious, Forest, did you ever consider "MBS wiki?"
    Interesting vid. Thanks for sharing.

    Steve O is the man. I can't wait for his next book. IMO, "The Great Pain Deception" is the best MBS book authored by someone not named Dr. John Sarno!

    Well, something like that is definitely actually in the works. Dr. Sarno's idea is actually to use The Mindbody Syndrome as an expansion of TMS. People will get it much more quickly and our Search Engine Optimization will improve.

    Projects like this can take forever, so now that this has gotten me excited about it, I'm just going to turn thought into action. :)

    I never understand when Steve says you are not ready to heal, when people are having a hard timing healing once they excepted and fully believe in TMS

    He's not meaning your "conscious" self but instead your "unconscious" self. Hard concept to grasp in the mist of TMS recovery but something I hold to... Energy to keep fighting TMS!

    Agreed. I remember reading that for the first time and getting totally pissed off at SteveO. How dare he say that!!! I later accepted that this was my ego talking. Like jrid32 said, I didn't consciously want to retain my symptoms but some part of me wanted to hang on for dear life. I tried to think of reasons why that would be. It was hard, painful even, to be that honest. One of the reasons had to do with feelings of unworthiness and of my needs not being met. Think of that inner child kicking up a major tantrum when it doesn't get what he/she wants. What do you want? What is realistically achievable and what is completely outside of your control?
