The Power of the Possible

True stories of healing and Transcendence

-Auriela McCarthy

http://www.aurielamccarthy.com

This book is a good inspirational book.
The Power of the Possible  True stories of healing and Transcendence  by Auriela McCarthy book coverIt's for them who could not forgive their close-ones for something which had hurt them.It may be infidelity ,drunk father,some mistakes ,petty fights,love breakups etc .
In due time this feeling got into their hearts and they suffered.
The book has five chapters that demonstrate five different scenarios.
Namely Chapter 1: The Son who forgave his Father,Chapter 2: To stay or to Leave ,forgiving the Unforgivable.. and so on .
This book encourages to forgive people not for the sake of them but for your well-being.Sometimes we are just too stubborn to forgive someone even if they apologize .In due course they move on with their life and you still suffer.We should understand that "We must lose the battle of being right to win the war of being happy".
Author says if we keep that hatred ,that anger inside us.We tend to be surrounded by negativity that results in sickness,sadness and frustrations.
Author has tried to explain through these stories that forgiving has the power to heal .Forgiveness has the power to bring back the happiness.
 Let me quote from first chapter "Change is mystery and so is forgiveness.And mysteries they will always remain -not to be solved and thus stripped of their magic,but received,like treasured and precious gifts and healing us in an instant."
Author has used very soothing and calm language.I read this one journeying in local train of Mumbai and i got so much involved that i didn't even realize the time.I could relate to many incidences in this book . Some with me ,some with my friends and foes.
I recommend this book to those who have broken hearts .Whose hearts are paining and wailing . Who have had that bitterness in hearts.
Someone who's looking for casual reading ,it's not for you .
And i think every one has someone to forgive.. so read along and know the power of forgiveness ... :-)  

Thanks to my friend Mona for lending me this book ,It helped a lot :)
