Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran self-help author Casey's gentle advice is anchored in a strong spiritual commitment. Having given up alcohol and drugs in 1976, she developed many of the concepts she advocates through attending 12-step support groups. Casey firmly believes that the work of someone's life belongs only to that person and to God, and that we should thus each tend only our own garden. From this conviction flow several of her principles, such as refraining from judging others, recognizing that you cannot change friends or relatives, and learning to focus primarily on your life's journey rather than on the opinions and actions of others. Casey recommends quieting the mind by letting go of your ego and looking for the lesson in every experience and encounter, whether positive or negative. Although many of the insights and techniques are not new, Casey's voice is thoughtful and accessible. Readers with a belief in the power of God will be most amenable to her recommendations for a simpler, more rewarding life. (May)

This small book, written in a gentle, conversational tone, would change the world if everyone read it and tried to apply its wisdom. I ended up buying it after borrrowing it from a library because there is so much good stuff to be highlighted. While the title is about changing your thoughts, a predominant goal of the book is to promote peace in our own lives, which leads to more peace in the world. This is really a special piece of writing.

This small book is a gem. The principles she writes about

are simple truths, some of them I learned as a child, some

of them I needed to be reminded of, such as don't try

to control or tell other people what to do and don't worry

about what others think of you. She mentions the 12-steps

of AA a few times and A Course in Miracles - two excellent

resources also.

I saw this book in a catalog I receive regularly and thought it sounded "interesting". What I couldn't foresee was how pertinent and vital this book has become in my life. I had just gone through a really rough patch at work, mostly because of the way I reacted towards others. After reading this book I realized how, after years of "banging my head against the wall", I was never going to change anyone's behavior but I had COMPLETE control over my own emotions. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone!!!! Somewhere in those 12 steps I guarantee YOU that at least one of those steps will ring true in your life, giving you more peace in your life.

This book isn't directly about how we lose ourselves in others; it's more about what happens when we decide to give ourselves up to the whims of the world. The book helps describe where this comes from, and offers some ways to get out of it. Life can be a walk on the beach, it doesn't have to feel like we're stuck in slow moving quicksand. This book can be helpful if we want to pull ourselves out of where we're already stuck - whether that place is in our own heads or in the lives of others.

I bought this book for all our seven boys, plus myself and for friends. I've read many such books, but most were from non-experienced authors who theorized, and had to write too much to say little. Karen Casey has dug herself out of hell into heaven all from proper thinking. We are what we think, eat, and who we associate with, and it helps to change your circumstances and begin to rethink your future. I highly recommend this book, read it more than once, and pass the knowledge along.
