Donna Miesbach has experienced it all. But rather than surrendering to immobilizing self-pity or remorse, she found a path that led her out of despair. Soon that path became a journey of self-discovery that led her to a series of epiphanies. By the end of this personal memoir, the author and reader realize that every setback provides a unique opportunity to break through to a higher plane of awareness and service to society.
Not only is the narrative an inspiration, but the book contains dozens of insightful moments, zen-like gems that will force you to pause and consider your own "rationalization" of grief. A few examples: "I realized that grieving itself was a choice. So is healing." "To neglect our inner needs for the sake of 'accomplishment' is to feed the ego and starve the soul." "It is only yourself that you experience." "Once you learn to let the universe lead the way, amazing things begin to happen."
Readers who embrace the view that we are all part of a universal force will discover new perspectives. Furthermore, the series of guided meditations that conclude the book will help them better understand the mysteries of the universe and our place in it.
My only regret is that I couldn't pass this book along to friends and family who might have found some solace following a personal tragedy. Now, I'm better prepared.
The author has a unique way with words, a personal writing style, a true gift of expression! Suggestions throughout the chapters refer the reader to try specific meditations which are thoughtfully included in the back of the book. There are beautifully written poems by the author at the end of almost every chapter. I found this book to to have a reflecting nature, providing encouragement,support and having a uplifting effect through life's most difficult lessons. In summary I would highly recommend this book.
