I’ve read over a 100 books regarding spirituality including several versions of the bible and the ‘Dead Sea Scroll’. Here is a summary of all these books into one place. This book can seem very heavy for those who haven’t read any other books or are willing to look at themselves. I recently left my job and when asked why I simply said that spirit was guiding me. I then spent three months going through a lot of trials. In the end I ended up with a new job where I was truly happy and the lessons have served me beyond words. I learned to see the path I was meant to be on including have compassion to others while understanding that we can’t know the real reason of others suffering!
I do disagree with the author on the statement that scientist have proven that while is all colors and black is the absence of all colors. My Native American teacher told me to take all the colors of the rainbow and mix them together and I got black. No matter how you try this test with colors you always end up with black. You can ask any 1st grader this as they’ve learned it.
With this in mind I will still recommend this book to people to read as I learned new information here I can apply.
I got this book because I've listened to John C. Maxwell on CD and I've seen his video series. Here I'm reminded that if I think everyone else is nuts or is missing something maybe I'm wrong and I'm the one missing something. I was listening to this book while having a difficult time with someone and John points out real quick that we may want a relationship, yet were not ready for it. He's right I was ready to toss everything away because I wasn't wanting to or didn't want to change. Here is a great talk John gave to a group of educators that will change or at the very least impact your life.
The author points out something that I’ve thought about myself and that is why people who are masculine suppressed. I’ve seen little boys being punished for being masculine. Why? Yet, a little girl does the same thing she is praised. Why? Then I’ve seen where both sides are punished because it leads to inequality. We’ve lost our way here and people hate it privately, but embrace it publically. People enter into relationships and neither one of them knows their roles. I’m not saying that women are to stay at home and the man goes out. I’ve seen relationships fall apart around me all the time. All of my siblings have been married divorced at least twice and I looked at their relationships to learn why. We were raised in a family with one side being dominant (female) and no one learned to balance this out with the people in their lives. I’ve never been married, but when I look at my past relationships I see this. Now reading this book I can see the basic lessons that will help not only those in my family for relationships. I’ve also passed it on to a friend and sent it out to the family to read. If you’re relationship if failing try starting here for an answer.
