The Gift of Being Yourself

This is my best selling book and the one many have said is their favourite. Writing it was as much an act of un-wrapping a gift as was the case in the writing of Surrender to Love.

This is a book about the spirituality of originality and authenticity – how our calling from God starts with who we are in our uniqueness.  It is, therefore, the book in which I work quite extensively with the concepts of the true and false self – or, as I prefer to put it – living our truth versus being caught up in the cul-de-sacs of our various false, even if adaptive, ways of being.  It is a call to discover and actualize our true-self-in-Christ.  Nothing is more important.  For, as Thomas Merton reminds us, “There is only one problem on which all my existence, my peace, and my happiness depend: to discover myself in discovering God. If I find Him I will find myself and if I find my true self I will find Him.”
