Living in the Light: A Guide to Personal and Planetary Transformation
by Shakti Gawain
Living in the Light provides insights from Shakti Gawain on how to achieve balance and fulfillment in our lives.
For Shakti Gawain, living in the light refers to "the consciousness and balance that comes into our lives as we become aware of, accept, and express the many aspects of who we are, including the parts that we may have feared and rejected." (p. 3).
Part One describes a set of Principles, including A New Way of Life, The Higher Power Within Us, Intuition, Becoming a Creative Channel, Exploring Our Many Selves, The World As Our Mirror, Spirit And Form, The Male And Female Within, and Men And Woman, East And West: A New Challenge. Part Two describes Living The Principles, including Trusting Intuition, Feelings, Balancing Being and Doing, Authoritarian and Rebel, Relationships, Our Children, Work and Play, Money, Heath, Your Perfect Body, Life and Death, Transforming Our World, and A Vision.
Shakti's writing style provides a nice blend of ideas, personal experiences, meditations, and exercises. I especially like her call for acceptance and balance in dealing with seeming contradictions in our nature. Much of what she describes I can see in myself and in others. I recommend reading the book to see if there is something of value to you in Living In The Light.
