The New Perspective: Ten Tools for Self-Transformation by Ron and Denny Reynolds
“What you are about to read is based on a theory that turns inside out most beliefs about how the universe works. It embraces the concept that consciousness is primary. We believe that consciousness creates physical reality and not the other way around, as most of us were taught.” – From the book
Husband and wife team Ron and Denny Reynolds have teamed up to share the results of personal experiments conducted in the laboratory of life. In The New Perspective: Ten Tools for Self-Transformation, the authors share the questions they’ve asked of life and the amazing answers they’ve derived from spiritual masters, books, and arguably the most important of all sources: personal experience.
The ten tools for self-transformation provided by the authors are as follows:
1.Change your beliefs, change your reality – Your beliefs create your reality
2.Choose love and choose love again – There are only two forces in the universe: love and fear
3.The universe unfolds as it should 100% of the time – Your Higher Self always has your greater good in mind
4.Things you resist tend to persist – Your Higher Self will keep things on your agenda until you get it
5.Focus on what you have, rather than what you don’t have – What you put your attention on expands
6.Do what excites you the most – What you put out is what you get back
7.Be willing to take a leap of faith – You only lose by the mount of doubt you have
8.Everything is a symbolic reflection – It’s done with mirrors
9.The power is in the present moment – The only time there is…is Now
10.All is one…One is all – There is only one of us: God, Goddess, All That Is
The New Perspective: Ten Tools for Self-Transformation also provides guided visualizations as well as exploratory exercises and worksheets to help you ascertain unconscious beliefs, create new ones, and set intentions for your highest good. The authors also share powerful anecdotes illustrating how these tools can help you cope with unexpected loss, dashed expectations, and troubling addictions.
While the perspectives in this book echo wisdom found elsewhere (The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, Loving What Is by Byron Katie, The Law of Attraction by Michael Losier, The Secret of the Shadow by Debbie Ford, What the Bleep Do We Know!?, A Course in Miracles and so on), it’s nice to have such immediately helpful, profound wisdom encapsulated in one volume.
