If you have been following even a small percentage of my articles you probably know by now that I am a nerd and I love books.. I admit it and am proud of it (smile). Now, as a connoisseur of books, I can be fastidious about what to buy and if I would recommend it to others. That being said let me say that I typically evaluate a book by the veracity of the information, the technical skill of the writer, the ease and flow of the writing, and possibly most importantly the applicability of the information; can I readily apply it to my life in some way shape or form.
Having said that, I now present to you a book that not only meets all but exceeds all expectations of the previously mentioned key points.
Rev. David Ault’s book “The Grass is Greener Right Here: We Are What We See” is a must own, must read, must recommend book!
Written in a very authentic and transparent manner as he interweaves his personal life stories and adventures with various lessons that educate, and illuminate so that we might eradicate the old paradigms that have bound us in lives of disempowerment, scarcity, shame, pain, fear, isolation, and separation from our own self worth, love, and power…
As a minister, I found the book spiritually powerful.
As a college professor, former high school teacher, and workshop facilitator, I found the book profoundly wise, educational and empowering.
As a father, I found it nurturing, supportive, and inspirational as it points to the triumphant potential of the human spirit.
As a person who used to hate himself, had suicidal ideations, and was in therapy several different times for several different things, I found the book healing and comforting as it shed light on areas of my heart and mind that could use a bit more forgiveness, love, compassion, and laughter.
Don’t expect to simply read this book and place it on the shelf; each chapter you are presented with a few paradigm shifting questions that if you take the time to seriously meditate on and answer, I would expect that you will find a you that you may not have known. There is a you that is far more powerful that you may realize or want to accept, a you that is worthy of being loved, cared about, and living a life where your grass is green and you are not concerned about someone else’s grass. You realize you are whole, perfect, and complete, right here and right now! You are enough!
Can you imagine if more of us knew that?
Can you imagine what our world can be when we need not compete to get, get, and get more?
Can you envision a world that works for everyone?
If you are or know someone who is ready to live the life they not only desire but the life they deserve, this is a book I strongly recommend you read. . .re-read and apply what you learn and report back on how magnificently your grass is growing!! (smile)
