Fire In The Soul... ♥

I've posted this message many times before. The first time I shared this book in December 2007. Nevertheless, the parable described in this book keeps playing in my spirit. Therefore, I am re-posting this book followed by the parable for all of my new readers.

"Fire in the Soul" is a great book written by Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. back in 1993. I randomly chose to read this book out of a list of books given by my English 101 Professor for a book report. It's said that there is NO such thing as coincidence. I truly believe that. Because after only reading the preface, and without even knowing, it was precisely the book/message I needed to read at that time. Here is a little excerpt taken directly from the book. Enjoy! :)


This is a book about freedom, about breaking the chains of old beliefs and fears that keep us in bondage to the illusion that we are separate from each other and from All That Is.

Freedom is the destiny of every living being. We become free by waking from our dreams of fear, scarcity, blame and guilt, by taking responsibility for acting, to the best of our knowledge, with care and loving-kindness that we may kindle the LIGHT of love within and by that LIGHT see our way home and serve as beacons for others along the way.

It is most often suffering that kindles love, loss that deepens understanding, hurt that opens the eyes of the heart that see forgiveness as a way of life and peace of mind as our birthright.
