Strong Medicine For Turbulent Times.
Sobering, playful, inspiring, this book contains a series of short essays, filled with insights that illustrate how compassion and authenticity used in everyday life promote both personal growth and social transformation.
Personal growth and planetary transformation are inextricably linked, two sides of the same coin. The way we treat others and the way we treat our planet are reflections of the way we treat ourselves. When we are filled with fear and criticism, the world is a scary, unforgiving place. When we are filled with love and compassion, the world is an abundant, playful place.
One of the big questions is, how do we translate ideas and talk into practical action that connects rather than divides? How can we be authentically devoted to our own values and yet listen empathically amid discomfort?
Healing divisiveness and conflict is not for the squeamish. It asks us to look deeply into ourselves, into what we hold dear, and then to set aside blame and criticism, considering the deep values at the heart of our own inner turmoil and the motivations of those with whom we disagree.
This book, Radical Authenticity, provides a recipe for peace, freedom, and meaning. It invites us to step into a loving, compassionate, and abundant world.

"You cannot destroy violence with violence - you cannot destroy dark with dark - you cannot destroy hate with hate - only love can do that."
Martin Luther King
"Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for your enemy to die."
"Between a stimulus and a response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. The last of human freedoms is to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances."
"People say that what were all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what were really seeking. I think what we are seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive."
"I believe that the most joyful and intrinsic motivation human beings have for taking any action is the desire to meet our needs and the needs of others."
Loving Relationship E-Poster
What water is to a fish and air is to us, communication is to relationships.
Whether at home, work, or play, the way we communicate shapes the way we interact and determines the quality of our experience.
When we bring awareness to how we communicate, we empower ourselves to create the world we want to live in.
