This book is like the scene in the movie where the hero, after an exhausting, arduous journey is searching for the sacred, secret text that is the master key to his/her further unfoldment. Finally, late at night in an ancient library, the hero stumbles upon this book and everything he/she is going through suddenly makes sense, like the proverbial piece that completes the puzzle and after which everything becomes clear and nothing is ever the same again. All of the searching is completed and there is just the continued deepening in the Self.
This is an incredible book. I have been reading spiritual literature for 30+ years and this came for me at the exact right time. It is essential reading and practice for anyone in the midst of Self-realization. The book provides expert guidance and practices. It explains the process of Awakening and provides the means to help you ground and stabilize your connection with the Self.Read more ›
With this work, Gina goes right into the root causes of suffering, which is the ego's false perception of the world. Through her words she explains how this happens and what we can do to get out of it. Each chapter is featured with exercises, from meditation to questioning our thoughts. As we work on these, we become less attached to material things and closer to peace and happiness. This book works very well with Eckhart Tolle's and Byron Katie's works.
Read this book once, then again and again. Forget about using a highlighter for the important parts. You'll end up marking every word.
Then I ran into this book by 'accident'. Years ago I read a book called Radical Honesty, and then I happen to see this title 'Radical Happiness'. I clicked on it, wondering if it was the same author. Needless to say it wasn't, but I was intrigued nonetheless. I downloaded the Kindle version and started reading.
To put it simply, this book broke through my stagnation! This book is crazy simple, and yes there were a lot of concepts that were review-like. But the concepts were phrased in a way that made me 'get it' on a far more deeper level than ever before. One of the most helpful things for me, was that the distinction between ego and 'self' was clarified, clarified, and clarified some more. I should mention that Gina use the word 'self' to describe our true identity, and encompass basically all that is real, all that is Not ego. I have used the term higher self, but her use of just 'self' was all encompassing, and really clicked.
Self is described in detail, and ego is described in detail. Part of my stagnation was due to my lack of real clarity over these.... ie: How do I know if communication is coming from self or ego? How can I be in closer touch with self, especially during meditation? And one of the most confusing issues for me was, What is the working relationship between ego and self?Read more ›
