Concentrated wisdom in a delightful package
on August 17, 2010
The cover of The Courage to Be Free shows beautiful balloons floating free, and as you read the book, it does feel as though ties to unnecessary thoughts and emotions are being released. The more you read, the more you can feel your spirit rising. Guy explains that all the negativity we carry around with us - the fear, the resentment, the regret - none of it is part of our "original equipment." And something about the stories he tells and the way he describes everything makes it so clear that we actually can meet life without all that excess baggage. It takes courage to be free because we have to leave behind our familiar, automatic responses and meet life directly. But isn't that what we really want? I would love to live from my original fearless self, and this book shows how to make it possible.
