Our personal stories contain the exact lessons we need to grow personally and spiritually, but we need to know how to interpret these stories and use them for dynamic personal and spiritual growth. This book is a wonderful guide to understanding the challenging places in our life and letting them teach us what it is that we truly need to become whole. Using the book’s four strategies, we learn to create more harmony and joy in our life, and the lives of those around us. We free ourselves from self imposed blocks to love for our self and others. We liberate ourselves from the tyranny of blame and judgment so that we can we experience the deep beauty of true compassion.
This is a book about applied spirituality. It is not about theories. It outlines a practical spiritual path each of us can take whether we are religious or not, for our own benefit and the benefit of every person we encounter. Rather than seeking attention or approval, Waking Up encourages us to engage in “love as a subversive activity. ” As the testimonials say, “this book can change your life.”
