Say Yes to Life provides you with seven keys to unconditional, abundant living. Each key opens a doorway to experiencing life as a gift.
This book will guide you to the depths of your heart where you long to celebrate life with a wholehearted "Yes!"
You will be led to a place of greater authenticity.
You will be encouraged to take joy in who you are.
Only willingness is needed to embrace yourself with gladness.
With your true Self in the driver's seat and the ego in the back seat, life takes on a new vibrancy.
Now you are present to yourself, to your companions, and the cosmos. The mountaintop appears and beckons you into the fullness that has always been awaiting you.
Read an excerpt:
The opinions we carry about ourselves are not readily identified. They are not easy to spot. We think the opinion (“I can’t handle adult responsibilities,” or “I’m socially awkward and therefore I’ll always be rejected”) is a fair, objective description. We mistake the mask we’re wearing for who we are, and we have no recollection of ever choosing the mask, or putting it on.
To say Yes to life is to bow down to Spirit, to make the “Yes” God utters more important than any other considerations.You may think of yourself as hobbled in certain ways. Your negative self-talk may have convinced you that you are not smart enough to pursue something you dream about. You may have formed unflattering opinions about, say, your artistic abilities, and these opinions may have caused you to leave your art supplies in the attic, untouched for years.
Cling to the negative self-talk no longer. Listen to Divine Intelligence say “Yes” to you, instead.
What if God is always whispering, “Hush now, babe, I want one thing. I want only for you to receive my love, hush, hush”? What if God’s nature is to give love, nothing more and nothing less? What if from the highest place in heaven it is clear that there is nothing, truly nothing to be feared?
What if fear impedes our communication with one another? What if we are designed to put fear in the backseat of the car, to blow loving kisses to her from time to time, and to be genuinely grateful to fear for her desire to protect us. What if fear cares deeply about our well-being, yet at the same time hinders our ability to listen? What if fear places obstructive filters that add meanings to what others say, misinterpreting and distorting what has been said?
What if God is a Power that is always looking for us? What if God is like an octopus with infinite arms, each tentacle always looking for unplugged lamps, the tentacle an outlet designed to light up the human soul that plugs in?
What if God is a Game that is always available for all to play, a Game always in the presence of each soul? A Game called “non-resistance” or maybe called “receptivity” or “quantum love”? The rules are simply this: Be who you are and let God do the rest.
What if God is waiting for us, always waiting. The Unchanging One who waits for us to say, “Yes, I shall conform my heart to yours” or “Yes, I shall set my sails now such that I’m available to intimacy with you and with the yellow daisy, the red tulip, and beauty everywhere. Free will has been given us, so what is there for God to do but wait?
What if the Goddess of Playfulness is always eager for us to be clear with ourselves about what we want? What if she is eager for the desires of each participant to be met? She wants us to know that play exists only when the desires of each one are honored. And she knows the deepest longings within each soul are to love and to be loved.
The time has come for us to celebrate who we are. And to rejoice in our relationship with Mystery. The time has come for us to open our hearts to life.
