My "Chicken Soup" for Spiritual and Personal Growth
METAPHYSICAL MINUTE - PHILOSOPHY ON THE RUN by DANNYE WILLIAMSEN is a wonderful tool if you are looking for personal and spiritual growth. This book contains a collection of essays that are not, by any means, a fast, easy read, but an intensely deep, thought provoking look at the way we, as people, look at situations surrounding us and the way we deal with them. I highly recommend reading one essay at a time and then taking time to ponder on the message within it.
On a very personal note, I found that I've actually started to reevaluated the way I look at different situations. An example of this happened just yesterday. I had an altercation with someone that I love dearly. This is something that has happened time and time again throughout our relationship over the exact same thing.
Have you ever found yourself in a position where you walk into someone's personal space and can instantly feel the intense negativity surrounding them? Well, if you had been a mile away from me, you'd have felt it pouring out of me. Once I got through the initial "mad" I was feeling, I opened METAPHYSICAL MINUTE and went directly to the essay that dealt with what I happened to be going through. I read through it several times, stilled myself, and started to exam how I was reacting to the situation.
I'm not proud of the fact that initially, all I could think of was getting her back for what she had done as a way to try to make her understand what she had put me through. After reading this particular essay, I feel I have the tools to deal with this situation now and in the future with a more positive outlook. I know in my heart, this same situation will arise again because I can't change someone else, but I also now know that I can change how I react to it. After I really started to understand that, my whole outlook changed. I had worked myself up into a frenzy, made myself ill over it, and initially said some very damaging things to this person that I love dearly. Now, I feel I have the tools to move forward from this argument, pull the positive from it, and move on. Hopefully, when this happens again in the future, I will be able to put what I've learned through these essays to use immediately and have a completely different outcome. Maybe, just maybe, by reacting differently to this, the other person involved will see the difference and make some changes as well.
I highly recommend METAPHYSICAL MINUTE - PHILOSPHY ON THE RUN by DANNYE WILLIAMSEN.
