Author Glenn Berkenkamp has written a marvelous book called Mastery: Living the Highest You. It was given to me recently as a gift.
He describes the process of receiving both the form and content of the book in a state of deep relaxation. It is a small book with only a sentence or phrase on each page, about self-mastery.
Here are some examples:
A Master loves unconditionally.
A Master allows herself to be guided by the quiet voice of her spirit.
A Master knows she is more than the habits and fears that may have governed her for years.
A Master understands there is no value in judging himself or others.
A Master acknowledges the worth and value of each moment.
Birkenkamp recommends to read the book through, to get a sense of the scope and range of the topic of mastery. Then the book may be used as a reference, guide, or devotional source.
In the next several posts I want to dwell on certain of these phrases, but I want to give due credit here to Berkenkamp and recommend that you look him up and get this book.
