The Power of Now is an excellent book, I agree.
Conversations with God is another one, as well as many many more. It sounds like you were very blessed to have been taught right from the start, and I would agree with your comments. We are all exactly were we are meant to be for our own evolution, and our own learning experiences. It also means for anyone reading these posts to realize that we are all perfect and to remember it is never too late to change no matter what type of upbringing we've all had. All of our upbringings are stories, and we do come into our present situations with our own baggage and our own stories. Byron Katie's book Loving what is is another excellent book to read. The power to change is within all of us all of the time. Accepting ourselves, and accepting others exactly the way they are is what I had meant when it comes to our ego.
Unconditional love is ultimately loving ourselves unconditionally and loving others unconditionally too.
Warmest Wishes, I do look forward to discussing more with you in the future.
I lost my son when he was 8 weeks old, on December 24, 1995.
Losing a child has been one of the most difficult things to deal with and heal from. I now know that this type of grief never leaves a parent, because even though our children may no longer be here, they are always a part of us, and they always remain a part of our lives.
My dreams and aspirations are many, and focusing on the now is my future, and as I continue doing my best, and working on me, I am seeing this change in my surrounding and my family.
I see many new and exiting opportunities in my future.
One of my dreams is to offer relationship workshops out of my home. They will take place in a beautiful ocean beachside setting.
My home is a big blue and white large farmhouse, with a large covered veranda.
Accommodations will be provided for the participants.
After the workshop they will be able to enjoy walks along the sandy beach, and enjoy good healthy Southern Italian Style food.
My family and friends will all be part of my team, and I picture my grandchildren running and playing through out all of this.
