Feelings and Reason: Activating Your Heart as Compass Despite the Ego's Interference Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Learn from a trauma psychologist the wisdom of real people challenged with the task of overcoming severe adversity. Integrating their insights into a complete picture of the human experience, Ernie L. Vecchio reveals a developmental understanding of how adversity becomes an opportunity for self-correction, growth, and healing. By acknowledging that the human ego is only one-third of a larger system, people learn not only what is observing their life, but why and where it is intending for them to go. The problem is we’re stuck in between life as it is and life as intended with whatever the ego considers interference. But there is good news, a unifying intelligence within everyone that wants nothing more than to liberate our fullest expression. Bringing continuity to how this unfolds, we learn there are 10 absolute truths of being human.
The process begins with a logical and sensible path to emotional maturity - we are what happens first. All humans are spiritual beings born into a psychological world (first premise). You are human (second premise). Therefore, you are psychospiritual. In this context, giving station to what we are in the beginning means we no longer have to be at the mercy of a misguided ego. What follows is a reciprocal relationship with the self and all of life. More than reducing people to their strengths and weaknesses, Vecchio proposes that every human being is a hopeful expectation for the future. He reminds us that the path forward has always been inward. Often called the road less traveled, he provides people with a pragmatic and reliable Map to Becoming.

In my experience as a psychologist, I’ve found that there are those who do not want “read” out of fear (that I will see their inner self) and those who do want to share in order to receive healing and a connection of the heart and mind. This book provides insight into the connection process of the heart to the mind. This information is paramount for professional, student, and everyone else.
During a biking/hiking journey across the country, Mr. Vecchio wrote that he had difficulty stopping in anticipation of what may lie ahead around the next curve in the road. This book provides incite of that trip and of the journey toward a connected self. It is an existential compass that each of us may use for our own journeys.

The author aims for the book to offer a context for being human that makes psychospiritual sense, which he certainly achieves!
I particularly like the way in which he bring a complex subject to life with his own personal and client stories as well as proving some great insights in the frequently asked questions.
