The Wider Our View

"The wider our view, the less isolated we are. The more connected we stay to everything larger than us, the less turbulent our time on Earth."    ~Mark Nepo
My sister Jamie informed me Friday that she had our next project.  She was right!
When I saw her Saturday she showed me her copy of The Book of Awakening:  Having the Life You Want by Being Present in the Life You Have.
There is a short chapter for every day of the year followed up by a simple meditative-type exercise. I purchased the e-book version today and so far I really like it!
The book fits nicely with my Word of The Year ~*Connect*~
This will be great as a guide to ~connect~ with my center and inner knowing.
I had initially thought that my word "Focus" from 2010 would have led me to something like this book, but I think that it even more fitting to have it make it's way to me this year.
The timing couldn't be better.

I haven't read this book but just going on what you have to say about it, it reminds me of a book I read about 12 years ago.

Maybe I'll get yours from the library and dig mine up from the basement. I remember liking the short daily inspirations.

Trish, Yes! And then we can "project" together. If one book doesn't seem to reach us on a particular day, the other may be just what is needed!
I checked out the sample chapter available at the link you gave and it looked good!
I'm there. Ready? Set?...

The big plunge...
