To get an even more immersed in this process, listen to the CD first. The CD guides that book and is a must have if one wants the full experience.
It is hard to not see bad news all around us recently. Wars and hate is running rampant as we go through our everyday lives. People are suffering and it seems like it might not end anytime soon. After all, as Puja reminds us “We are all children of Mother Earth, each a cell of the planet, affecting the health of the whole”. Even though we come from different areas with different languages, cultures, and religions, we are all part of the human race. We are in this together and when we accept ourselves we’ll be more able to accept others despite their differences.
You might ask how one could do that. Sometimes, it seems hard due to how different we can be. Puja has pointed out that if you are happy with yourself, you are more likely able to accept others. “As you become more grounded, receiving nourishment from the best of your roots, you will develop the confidence and strength to fly in accordance with your own gifts and vision”. Once you realize your own gifts you can offer to the world, you’ll be able to do many things.
Her companion workbook gives you plenty of space to think and consider what exactly you’re thankful for in life and how important it is to understand all the changes in your life. With her prompts and questions, you’ll have the opportunity to be able to think about these important issues in life and to make sense of them. This CD is designed to “support you in the inner work of transforming your life - so that you may carry forward the best of your roots, and fly according to your own truest vision.” This CD has Puja Thomson guiding you through the book and has Richard Shulman's music. This music can create a vibration that helps us calm our fears and find peace of mind by focusing what we wish for ourselves.
This book has so much to offer. From figuring out your own self and your connection to the world to remembering things such as family and places, you’ll feel extremely enlightened by the end of it. It can help get your mind in order and with a peaceful mind comes a peaceful life.
