This book comes with a CD at the back. I love the CD more than words can convey. I listened to the CD before I read the book – it was just easier to do as I could pop it into the car deck as I went about my day. Abraham are at their funniest in this CD. I had never heard them speak before, and I am so glad that this was the first piece I heard from them because I fell in love… and to this day continue to be in love with Abraham. The CD contains a very important analogy – the analogy of the “stream”. In the book and in the CD Abraham explains what resistance is and how it prevents us from getting what we want. They explain the difference between rowing uphill and downhill and the role of effort in achieving success. They explain how our emotions are actually an important guidance system that tells us whether we are on track, going in the direction of the things we want or if we are paddling in the opposite direction from them.
It was because of this book that I worked on re-establishing my connection with my emotions. You see, I had learnt to brush my feelings aside, to be brave in all situations, to push through adversity, to work hard for all the things I wanted and this book turned all of this on its head. It made me challenge what I knew and get clear on how things worked.
A wonderful wonderful wonderful book. You’ll know what I mean when you read it.
