About The Book:
How To enjoy Peace In Your Life Every Dayis my first foray in carrying the message I was given, it is a direct result of an amazing spiritual experience I had on 9-11-2001. It left me with a responsibility, a message to carry, and a very real sense of purpose that does not seem to be going away. If I ignore the voice, it only gets louder. I think you will find the book enlightening, funny, shocking, and full of lessons about life, love and forgiveness. It is written from the perspective of my own experiences because I can’t think of a more authentic way to have a conversation with you. The book is only the beginning. The website/blog is the next step. Where I go from here, I do not know. But I am willing to go there anyway because I trust that God will lead me in the right direction. He already has.
Excerpts from How To Enjoy Peace In Your Life Everyday:
“Choosing to live a life of peace is in no way an abdication. The peaceful position is not a position of weakness, it does not mean that you ever accept the un-acceptable, it does not mean that you lay down and allow people to roll over you, and it is not a position of “whatever”. The position of peace is the most powerful one you can occupy. It is the greatest source of entirely grounded personal strength, emotional integrity, intellectual flexibility, and spiritual freedom. Unfortunately, you cannot know that until you choose to go there. If you are feeling any amount of emotional turmoil, unhappiness, loss of control, crazy thinking, anguish, pain, frustration, anger, or fear in your life, choosing to go there would be a very good idea.”
“The familiarity of pain can often be more compelling than the initial discomfort experienced when the pain is eliminated.”
“I did not know that joy, love, and peace do not have to be worked for so much as remembered, recognized, accepted, and given plenty of room to grow.”
“…fear of the future will begin to disappear because you can look forward and know that what will happen to you is much greater than your greatest dream today. Imagine looking into the future and feeling excited rather than terrified!
“More often than not we don’t know that there is a more effective way for us to think and behave. We do not know that we could live our lives in a much more fulfilling and significantly more fun manner by making a different choice. And we don’t know that we don’t know.”
“Real forgiveness assumes that if we are impacted by something in an adverse manner, at least part of that adverse reaction has been created by us, and our automatic impulse is to place the blame elsewhere. Therefore, real forgiveness occurs when we can forgive other people for the mistakes we have made.”
“You have, by looking at your very own life and your own experiences thus far, collected enough irrefutable data to support the contention that all you need to do is let go because how you think things should be is infinitesimally small compared to how they can be.”
“The only value that anything in your past has for you now is that it has taken everything that has occurred in your life to get you where you are today. Right now, your slate is clean, and you can learn to make different choices which will most assuredly lead to different results.”
