I found All Storms Pass to be a great collection of self-affirming and encouraging meditations. The style of the book, with a meditation on each page, lends itself to reading just one page at a time, or the whole book. The meditations touch on self esteem issues, depression, and troubled relationships, among other things. This is the kind of book I would keep around and pull out in times when I get down or need support.

Someone once told me that reading poems was like looking into the poet's soul. Luke Benoit's All Storms Pass: The Anti-Meditations consists of meditations that inspire, challenge, and guide the reader to look into their own soul and to find his or her true self. Benoit is a Certified Life Coach and a Certified Professional NLP Hypnotist. He assists people to cultivate healthy change, confront problems, and to seek joy within. His book is a compilation of meditations that he uses when helping people work through their issues. The poems help the reader to see that one of the biggest stumbling blocks that people encounter on their path to peace and happiness is themselves.

For those familiar with meditation books, Benoit's meditations might surprise you. There are some that may seem familiar and hopeful. Many of them offer thoughts that hard times give us strength and make us stronger. Some raise interesting issues, such as how one person can be toxic for us and consume our thoughts.

One of my favorite lines was "I need to be my Earth and not your moon." This line speaks volumes and demonstrates Benoit's ability to use poems to empower the reader to embrace their uniqueness and self and not let other's diminish their self-worth or worse, take over their lives and extinguish their light.

The author occasionally breaks away from the traditional meditation and provides some that are dark. For example, in one titled "The Fairy Tale of 9 Fingers" he writes of a woman who was wronged by her husband. The wife didn't leave him. Instead she asked a witch to cut off his finger, which she put in a jar, for his punishment.

Not all of the meditations are dark.

When I first saw the title of the book, All Storms Pass, I thought it was a positive message about what would be found inside. Something to get us through that storm ;o), but the part about the Anti-Meditations well, let's just say my curiosity was peaked...
I have read many spiritual, self-help and meditation books, some with meditation topics or suggestions as well as guided meditations.
This book is different. It is more than just food for thought and it's not filled with abstract topics meant to give a glimmer of hope. Some of the `meditations' bring the topic into focus with the added bonus of a flood light. There are parts, probably corresponding to the more harmonious aspects of our lives where we can say, "Yeah that makes sense," or "I already knew that," but the ones we need speak loud and clear. And it's far from one sided...taking into account our expectations or interactions with those around us.
I believe there is something in here for everyone, whether you are looking for affirmations or trying to understand the situation you're in. I do not believe a person can get through the book without having found something that has been clarified, simplified, uplifted or resolved. Now it's up to you to give it a try, see where it leads you.
This is the kind of book you open time and time again, and always find something you need.

It will seem hard not to come across as making fun of this book. The author is a "certified" life coach, hypnotist, and advocates something called "anti-meditation." And, for a reviewer in Wisconsin, when someone talks about "surfing past your emotions" and "checking the cheap drama at the door," he knows Benoit is living in California.

Read all at once, these little one-page fortune cookies seem disposable, but wait... There are two players here, the author and the reader. And as a reader, thinking about one or two of these a day, I found I could provide my own context to each and come away with something meaningful. Sometimes dark, sometimes insightful these "All Storms Pass" allows us to consider the choices that make us who we are.

Ultimately, I am happy to have the book in my hands for what is going on in my life right now. And the right reader, at the right time and place will also feel this way. But that reader needs to be of an accepting mind.

We all accept or reject truth differently. Here's my poem on the subject:

Eating Truth

Each of my dogs swallows truth differently. Old
Flaubert, with caution, pawing at it first, before
he takes a bite. Gatsby gulps all that's offered
then spits out what he doesn't want. And Kafka,
who's part wolf, will only eat when no other dogs
are in the room. Sometimes this means he gets
merely what is left. Or is finding truth rejecting
what others will accept?
