Summer 2013: I have the thoughts a few times. I would like to read another book. just for the joy of reading a book. I loved reading and learning about life in general. However, after reading all of Dr David R Hawkins MD books, they are so precise and detailed that all my questions about life have been answered already. So its a challenge to find a book. I tried looking, but after having no luck, I surrendered that too.
October 14th: I surrender my finances again and pray for help if its in accord with thy will.
October 15th: I get an email asking to rent my house for a month for a generous amount
October 16th: Meet with the guys that want to rent the house at a café. Real good guys and one of them asks me if I ever heard of Gabor Mate. I said no.
October 16th: After I met with them I go online and the very first post I see on facebook is one about Gabor Mate
October 17th: Someone posts a free documentary offer on facebook. The movie seems interesting so I watch it. After the movie ends, there is an interview with an expert on the topic: Gabor Mate. So I listened to the interview. I also then went on Gabor Mates website and listened to his Ted Talk. In listening to him I can see that he comes from a place of knowing and that essence is in every sentence he speaks. He speaks from experience and knowing and becoming, not from reading about. He has become his work and that is why he knows it so well.
Nov 7th: I went to meet my 93 year old dear friend Margaret Chaney at the retirement home in Michigan. I havent seen her in a few months so we talked for a couple hours catching up. Then out of the blue, in the middle of a conversation, she seemed a little confused and said I want to get you a book, I don't know why. Gabor Mate, that is the author I was thinking about, she says. Then hands me the book in the picture here. It was such a joy meeting with Margaret and I left with a book, that was hand selected for me...
