The book begins with the phrase: "Although we believe that we are born and die only once, the truth is that throughout our lives we die and are reborn many times." So true. I have a friend with whom we've always referred to these event-based stages which transformed us as our "different lives." Whether through tragedy, opportunity or some joyful event, a lifetime well and fully lived is one where we experience many lives. This book is part how-to guide and part inspiration on how to move from tragedy into opportunity for growth and not allow the bad times to define or stifle one's life.
The book begins with the story (without any graphic details) of Schiller's abduction, torture, and extortion during which time all of his belongings were stolen and once all his assets were spent attempts were made to murder him for his life insurance. The conclusion to this story is nothing short of miraculous. Then the book breaks down how the power we all have through mind, emotions, body and soul can enable us to survive tragedy and experience a self-transformation rather than self-destruction. The book concludes with a chapter on inspirational wisdoms combining all of these facets of self.
This is my newest personal go-to guide for inspiration, and I've just ordered extra printed copies to give as gifts.
Great read and I will recommend it to others. It gives you a feeling of how powerful each of us are if we just stay positive and hopeful in any of life's hardships that comes our way. Most of us will not have to handle what he had to handle , but if he can survey that then I know I can handle the everyday hardships that come my way.
