Relationships are important, yes; but the relationship you have with yourself is paramount. And this book helps you come back to this knowing, and instead of focusing on the content, focuses on the process. The content will change all the time. The content will vary based on which partner you're with at the time and what circumstances through which you're going. The process however will be with you your whole life, and it's with compassionate awareness that we're able to recognize this and practice unlearning our conditioning.
I'm going to be honest, some of the concepts require rereading and it is all to easy to skim a page and really miss the depths of what Cheri is conveying. But that does not mean it is not worth buying, reading, and rereading several times over.
I attached pictures of some of my favorite passages from the book. If you are even the least bit intrigued, I highly recommend purchasing. Best of luck.
Yes, life is hard. Working through our stuff is harder because we are the barriers to our own happiness. Cheri outlines it in an easy way in this book and really hits it home. If you're fresh out of a breakup, hopelessly single and not working with dating, or even in a relationship on troubled times... this book is a MUST.
If you think about it, you are your only 100% GUARANTEED life partner. This book is about looking at your beliefs, behavioral patterns and conditioning in a curious, gentle and open way toward the goal of having a comfortable relationship with yourself. The unspoken corallary to this might be and thereby... avoid projecting your stuff on to others and get involved with the wrong people unconsciously.
This book is indirectly about relationships because by being the person we want to find, we are most likely to attract healthy people who will treat us as we treat ourselves. This book also helps us to look at our conditioning as a whole, which serves our relationship goals by making our unconscious conditioning more conscious.
I have read a number of Cheri Huber's books and have found them to be easy to read, very practical and entertaining. She does not overwhelm the reader with detail, but she provides a lot of useful and practical tools for those brave enough to do deep inquiry. She focuses more on lived experience in the moment than in-depth discussion of theory.
All of Cheri Huber's books emphasize the importance of being compassionate with yourself, looking inward and accepting whatever the present moment brings. I would say that she emphasizes that HOW you do something is at least as important as WHAT you are doing. She also stresses the importance of a daily meditation practice in most of her books, without being preachy about it. This is good advice for most of us in the West where many of us don't slow down enough to look inward.
I'm really glad to see that Cheri Huber made it as an author. I saw her speak in person and found her to be a very warm, sensitive and caring human being. I also felt she was underrated as an author at the time, but since then she has become quite popular. I often recommend her books to people because they have such broad appeal and written from a deep place of compassion and love.
