The central theme is the importance of the connection of the mind, body and spirit but it is the manner in which she takes us through this exploration of ourselves that defies reviewing the book. She graces the pages with words such as these: `Everybody has a path...Every person has something in this life that they are meant to be or do.' In referencing her concept of the Core, she states, `it is only when you dig out the root with honesty, love, effective communication, true understanding of the issue, of yourself and of the others involved, then you will move forward in your path of evolution.'
She speaks of our spiritual baggage - left over unresolved issues from a previous life - and how to deal with that. She discusses honest relationships, loving ourselves, that no one is entitled to anything they do not earn, that `Universal Responsibility is being responsible for all beings on the planet; it is being able to move past one's own views and beliefs to help someone who is in need, regardless of color, creed, sex, one's own family, friends, coworkers, tribe, clan, village, religious views or ethnic background.' When she addresses our process of evolution of self, she states, `accept your part in the Universe, understand what your lessons are, learn from your lessons, grow within yourself, and evolve into a better state of being.'
With Monica Ortiz guidance we learn tools to find and know our core and to learn and grow into something we are capable of being, something that feels like a miracle - until you realize just how soulful and truthful is Monica Ortiz. That `miracle' is health, happiness, and fulfillment! If you care, buy this book. Grady Harp, January 14
The author has used her spiritual skills to guide the reader to truly improve themselves, inside and out, and those around them. She guides you to dig deep and find your own unique 'real you', your Core, who you are meant to be in this life on earth.
The book is very easy to understand and follow, reminding the reader of the true values of life. We tend to live our lives rushing from one thing to the next never taking full notice of what we are doing or who we are with. I felt and agreed from reading the authors words that we lack traditional human values we once had, where people respected and looked out for each other and treated each other with pure kindness, exactly how we would want to be treated ourselves. A need for a kinder world and how to play our part is definitely what you will get from reading this.
I particularly enjoyed reading about spiritual baggage and how unresolved issues from past lives can be brought into our current life. Certain chapters may jump out to you more where you feel you are lacking and need to improve mostly on. The chapter on Entitlement especially made me think quite hard about how my children are given material things far too easily and how this 'not having to work for it' attitude can be carried into their adult life.
Each chapter relates to certain areas to improve on such as Spiritual Baggage, Relationships, Loving Yourself, Universal Responsibility, Judgment to name a few. All are split into three areas 'The Teaching' which explains why the topic is important and how this may be done, 'The Lesson' where the author uses her own related experiences to reiterate the what we need to learn and 'The Learning' to show how we may do this and improve our ways.
Reading about the authors close connection we her granddad brought back fond memories of the time I spent with my granddad before he passed and I enjoyed this part too.
This is a real thought provoking book that you can not read without making mental notes of improvement and how we can help our universe evolve.
