Possibly the best life change book I've ever read

I picked up Finding Your Own North Star while doing research for a self-help book I am co-authoring, thinking I would look at it, figure out what was worng with it, and put it down. Instead I was blown away. This was by far the best book on life change I have ever seen,...
I picked up Finding Your Own North Star while doing research for a self-help book I am co-authoring, thinking I would look at it, figure out what was worng with it, and put it down. Instead I was blown away. This was by far the best book on life change I have ever seen, with the possible exception of Barbara Sher's classic, Wishcraft. Martha Beck shows you how to follow your own body and inner awareness to create the life God meant you to live -- a life of joy, in harmony with who you really are. Not pie in the sky in the least, this book lays down the practical steps you need to take to listen to your inner self and turn your desires into reality. If you're the kind of person who believes that life is a vale of suffering stacked against you, that only the incredibly lucky, talented and smart will do anything remotely like what they want to do, and the rest of us have to resign ourselves to our compromised fate with the help of religion, television and ironic wisecracks, then this is definitely not the book for you. But if you secretly believe that you deserve to be happy and do what you love to do, and have been waiting for someone to come along and give you permission and some instruction on how to make it happen, then look no farther -- click this book into your shopping cart. On the jacket sleeve, Martha Beck looks like Mary Martin playing Peter Pan. And she really is like Peter Pan, sprinkling fairy dust on people and telling them they can fly. And she'd never, never tell you to grow up and wear a tie and a serious expression, unless ties and serious expressions really, really turned you on. I heartily recommend this book to any genuine life seeker of any age.

    LostSpirit --||-- Clan Meeting! --||--

    LostSpirit jumps up onto the High Log. He looks down at the camp, and the finally active Clan. His eyes shone with pride, and he smiled as he yowled, "ALL CATS OLD ENOUGH TO CATCH THEIR OWN PREY, GATHER BENEATH THE HIGH LOG FOR A CLAN MEETING!" He watches the cats assmeble and nods to them. "Thank you all for advertising! We are becoming active again! Now, please keep adverising, because we don't want to fall inactive again! Please. Even if it's just once or twice a week. Alright, now for more important things! We have gather here today for some ceremonies! First, I'd like to give a warm-welcoming! Moonflower, Echoleaf, Wolfkit, Mossshadow, Fadedblood, Spacepaw, Tawnyripple, Lostmoon, Skyclaw, Blackfur, and Cheetahpelt have joined NorthClan recently! Let's greet them with respect, and treat them as if they were in NorthClan all their lives! Second cermony: Spacepaw needs a mentour! We have many warriors that I could've chose from. But I respect PetalStorm, and she has done lots for this Clan. PetalStorm, please teach Spacepaw your patience, strength, and wisdom! You'll be a wonderful mentour! And i can tell Spacepaw will be a wonderful apprentice!," he stops for a second, catching his breath. "Now! Last part of our ceremony! GoldenHope has picked a MCA (Medicine Cat Apprentice)!!!! Wolfkit, I now name you Wolfpaw! And you will be the MCA of NorthClan! Your mentour is Goldenhope! Goldenhope, teach her your knowledge, and caring spirit! Wolfpaw shall be known as this, until Golden thinks she's ready for a full name! Then and only then, can Wolf become the official second Medicine Cat of NorthClan! Now, thank y'all for your time! Clan dismissed!" He jumps down and pads over to each of them, shaking their paws, and giving them all a warm welcome, and a smile.
