The Real Reason Why I Wrote: From Confusion To Clarity, Vital Personal Growth in 30 Days or Less (What’s In It for me?)
On March 27, I did a radio interview about my new book, From Confusion To Clarity: Vital Personal Growth in 30 Days or Less, with radio host, Maggie Holbik of Crystal Clear Coaching. If you find books on personal growth and contemporary spirituality engaging, yet are still on the fence about whether to add my book to your collection, I invite you to listen to this radio show, which you might have missed, but which you can hear at your convenience by clicking on the link at the end of this page, so kindly read on, because what you won’t hear on the radio, is the meat of the matter in this month’s blog post:
During the show, I was gratefully, caught off-guard when Maggie asked, “What do you hope to achieve by writing this book? What sets your book apart from other books about personal growth? I say gratefully because these questions have since stayed with me long enough to shed new light on my own understanding of “what I hope to achieve” through sharing with you, the messages found in my book.
Among lots of other things, my book discusses a particular meditation taught by Conversations With God, author, Neale Donald Walsch, a modern-day spiritual messenger. It is not the only form of meditation I use effectively, nor is it the only one I recommend, but this meditation in particular does have a profound impact on me whenever I do it.
I learnt about Neale’s meditation (which gives one the opportunity to have a two-way dialogue with the Divine, hear the voice of the soul, God, or whatever name you choose to explain the glue that holds life together,) through attending one of his workshops in a large room filled with people. To the best of my knowledge, other than taking a course with Neale, either online or on-sight, or knowing someone who has, most people are not familiar with his meditation.
I bring this up because many of you, as well as your friends, and family members, have read at least one of the many books written by Neale Donald Walsch, yet how many of you, your friends, or family members, have gone to a spiritual retreat, and learned a meditation that profoundly changed your life?
I am just an ordinary person, not spiritual master, nor life coach, nor reverend, though these days I do behold more with reverence than ever before. Having experienced the different things my book discusses, I believe it can serve to bridge the gap, leading more of us ‘ordinary people,’ to delve more deeply into teachings and the life work of teachers like Neale Donald Walsch, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and many others, and to actually embody the tools they offer through their teachings, by making them a way of life.
Perhaps my book will urge you to look at their online calendar of events and make some plans, or to meditate regularly, or to make one of the 30 user-friendly activities in my book, a part of enriching your life. If not, I believe my book, From Confusion To Clarity: Vital Personal Growth in 30 Days or Less, will encourage readers who are stuck and suffering, by providing them with easy but highly effective tools that allow one to change poison into medicine, and to lower the volume on their personal pain.
