Happily, this is not a prescriptive set of worksheets that tell you not to read the next page until you have completed the exercise. I don't care for that approach. I want to learn and be entertained and have a helpful resource available to refer to later, but I don't want to be told how to do things. Saint Rain writes in a very enjoyable style that feels open and honest and loving and informative all at the same time. I read it in just over one day, but I plan to go back and read it again at some point, as I already have for The Secret of Emotions. I think you will, too.
This book, and the first in the series is like a rich meal, where you need to take time to digest the ideas. It's not a book that can be rushed through or read in one sitting.
Usually I read a book from cover to cover, and seldom read it twice. With this series, I found myself reading the books as a spiral - forward and back, section by section. As I learn one new thing it builds on what I learned previously and I want to go back and review the previous section with new eyes.
I love trying out his suggestions. For example, while I was reading the chapter on letting go of expectations and forgiving someone, I had a specific situation in mind. I'd been frustrated that someone had not contacted me to confirm a visit for the following weekend, and within an hour of forgiving him, I had an email with the information I needed. This really works! Some people might have thought this was just a coincidence, but I'm convinced that first I needed to let go of my attachment to the outcome; and then forgive before I could have gone forward. I was very grateful for the timely advice!
I can't wait for the third book in the series!
One can ease the navigation of life's journey by drawing on the experience of those who travelled previously. And this assistance is offered in spades by Justice Saint Rain in Four Tools of Emotional Healing: Honesty, Forgiveness, Compassion and Faith, the second book of his Love, Lust and the Longing for God trilogy on emotional healing. The cliche that we are given this life without the benefit of an instruction manual overlooks the plethora of self-help books available for all areas of life, especially the emotional and spiritual. However, some are better, much better, than others, and Saint Rain has done an excellent job of weaving his own experiences into a blueprint for emotional healing that resonated with this reader.
I found the author's informal style of writing to be refreshing. He presents insights, based on his own difficult life experiences, with positive, uplifting encouragement. Each reader will have an "aha!" moment with this book, a new understanding of how to pass through roadblocks on his spiritual journey.
The book specifically speaks to those who need an environment, such as a 12 Step program, but have hesitated to engage. This book will answer your questions and help to eliminate any fear or hesitation you may be experiencing. Don't let things from the past hold you back any longer.
