The Big Leap
I love how the author tells many stories to illustrate the concepts he is trying to teach. In particular, he talks about how when you tell a lie or hold back information that you think you should disclose you end up getting sick or attracting an event that acts as an indicator to tell you that you are doing something that you should not be doing (or that you are taking action that you are not lined up with). One of the stories was about a young couple who eloped to get married without telling the families on either side. As things would have it, the guy's side of the family was opposed to the match for many reasons the author has described in detail. On their way back from the chapel, the couple called and let the brides family know that they had married, but did not tell the groom's parents. They were obviously feeling guilty and did not want to face the tune - and we all know where guilt is on the emotional scale, don't we? Well, guess what, they stopped enroute for a tumble in the woods, and in their exuberance tumbled on to some poison oak leading to a very painful manifestation resulting from the guilt they were feeling. The author states that the solution he proposed to the couple was to call the groom's parents and get the guilt off their chests so that they could speed up their healing. Mind you this book was written before the term "the Law of Attraction" and the use of the word Universe, became mainstream. The author references the Universe several times and especially in the context of "trust".
Reading this story and many others that the author tells with a lot of flair was quite enjoyable - it gave me the opportunity to see the Law of Attraction through the lens of psychology and as a teacher of LoA provided me with a way to explain the Law of Attraction to people who accept psychology but perhaps are not quite ready to accept the Law of Attraction as a body of knowledge that can provide the basis for formulating solutions to mental and emotional human suffering and struggle.
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for ways to create a bridge between the Law of Attraction and psychology. I also recommend it to anyone who enjoys a well told collection of short stories that are written with purpose. I promise you that this book will help deepen your understanding of the Law of Attraction in a very enjoyable way.
