Most of all I suffered ( still suffer) from a big lack of discipline (Oh yeah... and I never finish what I start!). Sil Lai in her heart to heart conversation, confession, laid out her nine steps, in a very plain way, no threat, no big words... She makes us dig a little in our spirituality, our humanity, and most of all she heps us unveil our own Truth, our life's fuel. Letting us unveil the possibilities we all have to finally enjoy the plenitude of a well balance life, in tune with our innerself and aware of our surroundings, accepting and loving who we are, just the way we are!
.... and no, it does not feel like a self pitying trip after a sceance at a support group!
Sil Lai Abrams has created a remarkable work that has given me more than just hope (lots of books have given me hope)... it's also given me an action plan that works!
The word in the title that matters most is "simple," because these really are simple steps. What could be more simple than searching for and acknowledging the truth (Step 1), accepting it (Step 2) and then taking action (Step 3)?
While the steps themselves are easy to wrap one's head around and simple enough to immediately see their importance, the effort required by actually taking the steps isn't. Sometimes, it can be gut-wrenching. I've spent a week coming to terms with a relationship that isn't good for me. The gut-wrenching part? I've known all along that it wasn't good. Instead of seeing it for what it really is (she's not over her ex), I've tried to convince myself that things were getting better, that we were making progress, and that it will soon be different.
Step 1 requires that I strip away my wishful thinking and see it, the truth, for what it is (she doesn't love me and probably never will), Step 2 requires that I accept it (ouch!), and Step 3 requires that I take action (in this case, end it and move on). Yes, it feels awful, but it's real and staring me in the face. I can't avoid it for even a moment longer. Yes, I am heartbroken and have cried a thousand tears. More importantly, yes, I know I deserve to be in a relationship with someone who can actually love me back!Read more ›
The book is well-written, and because she uses the errors of her own life to show what can happen if you only seek to survive, it makes it very real and something easily understood. Especially when you are honest and realize that you have done some of the very same things without knowing why you were doing it.Read more ›
