Steven Rice's book is like a bell tower ringing a bell getting us to look not only upwards, but especially inwards and gets us to realize you can and must change your life if you are unhappy with it. He also points out how people want you to adopt their drama. Who of us has not had a friend or family member that feeds off pity and reject any form of real help? As you find your spark, there will be people who need you to come down to their personal hell and suffering and sit with them instead of offer any real help. I believe C. S Lewis said it best when he said "The doors of hell is locked from the inside" and in many cases, people choose to adopt suffering and want you to adopt it too. Steven Rice says we can reflect our genius to those that haven't found their spark. Tell me, encourage them but never adopt their drama.
Steven Rice's message is very simple: we already have the imperceptible spark, you need not wait for anyone to give to you and you need not wait for tomorrow for things to get better. The act of bringing this spark to life rest solely on you.
Many people struggle to determine their life purpose. Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? Mr. Rice wanted to define his innate purpose. He believes each person is uniquely equipped to fulfill a purpose. One day, Steve realized that his purpose was to give other people hope. He realized that all the things he does instinctively and intuitively are driven by his desire to give hope to others. Steve tells about that nearly imperceptible spark...taking courage and making a decision...that has changed his thoughts and changed his life.
Mr. Rice compares a shift in thinking to a tidal wave. When a tidal wave hits an island, it wipes out everything in it's path. After the destruction, new life emerges and growth occurs. Steve tells how the "tsunami" of change began to hit his life and to transform his experience profoundly. In the mind, when a shift like this occurs, a wave of new thoughts begins to churn like the waves beneath the surface of the ocean. When these new thoughts meet the resistance of old habits and thought patterns, that is when the evidence of the new thought becomes visible. A change in habits and thought patterns is never easy but it is possible. Mr. Rice shares exactly how he changed his life by changing his thoughts.
This book gives me hope because it shows how one person can cast off the expectations of others and live a life that is rewarding and joyful. I have everything I need to live a life of joy. Each person has an imperceptible spark...the courage to make a decision to change our thoughts and live a life of joy!
I want to thank Mr. Rice for sending me a digital copy of this book to read and review.
