I have absolutely loved this quick easy read. This book needs to be discussed thoroughly, but not in a review. Not ruining the experience for someone else. This is one that you’ll want to share with your friends, your sister and maybe even your mother.
“People spend so much time wondering why the women don’t leave their abusive marriage. Where are all the people who wonder why the men are even abusive ?”
“Imagine all the people you meet in your life.. there are so many. They come in like waves, trickling in and out with the tide. Some waves are much bigger and make more of an impact than others.”
Just wanted to share a moment in the book that particularly moved me.
When you walk thru a beautiful botanical garden, you feel open and light, you feel love, you see beauty. You don’t judge the shape and the placement of every leaf. The leaves are of all sizes and shapes and they face every which way and that is what makes them beautiful.
What if you felt that way about people?
You have the power to create. Your power is so strong that whatever you believe comes true. You create yourself, whatever you believe you are. You are the way you are because that is what you believe about yourself. Your whole reality, everything you believe, is your creation. You have the same power as any other human in the world. The main difference between you and someone else is how you apply your power, what you create with your power. You may be similar to others in many ways, but no one in the whole world lives her life the way you do.
You have practiced all of your life to be what you are, and you do it so well that you master what you believe you are. You master your own personality, your own beliefs; you master every action, every reaction. You practice for years and years, and you achieve the level of mastery to be what you believe you are. Once we can see that all of us are masters, we can see what kind of mastery we have.
