Overview

"If we are not in harmony with ourselves, how can we possibly be in harmony with anyone else, much less the world we inhabit? We want to lead lives that are whole, without sorrow, anger, fear, stress, and anxiety, yet we continue to define ourselves by these negative outlooks.

"We seem to be ignorant of, and even threatened by, more positive perceptions. Intellectuals who achieve personal security only in being cynical scoff at love and the softer emotions as being mere sentimentality. Good is not in the cards for the human race, they say. What they are really saying is, 'I don't want to risk belief, or love, or anything kindly, because I can't bear to be hurt, or betrayed, or rebuffed, or made to look foolish.'

"The human race has indeed had a bloody history. So what do we do? Keep allowing, or causing, it to happen? Or try, each one of us individually, to accept the internal recognition of responsibility, to believe in and make real the power that each of us possesses, knowing that what one single person does can indeed make a difference."

From Going Within

MacLaine offers her millions of readers the techniques and tools to reclaim the power to shape their lives and to deal with unfinished business in relationships at work and at home. A practical and inspiring guide that shows how to seize the promises of the New Age and make them real.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Going Within, MacLaine asks tough questions of and gives good advice to the spiritual seeker. She has suffered, felt sorrow and anger, stress, fear, and anxiety, yet she has never allowed herself to be defined by her negative emotions. Instead she asks, "If we are not in harmony with ourselves, how can we possibly be in harmony with anyone else, much less the world that we inhabit?" MacLaine celebrates the independence that comes with the recognition of all emotions, both negative and positive. MacLaine has created many memorable roles as an actress but ironically younger adults may be more familiar with her work as a memoirist and spiritual seeker. In Out on a Limb, MacLaine reveals an intense and secretive loving relationship with a prominent politician, which sparked her quest for self-discovery. Fans of the actress's earlier works will be aware of her love of the journey. Her descriptions of her travels from Stockholm to Hawaii to Peru will stimulate even the most sedate armchair traveler wanting to see more of the world. MacLaine's exploration of life with her lover Gerry requires that she question lifelong relationships with close friends, giving new definition to the phrase "soulmate." Through it all, her candor, willingness to share her experiences, and independence take the listener into the personal life of an outspoken and interesting woman. MacLaine's books and audiocassettes have been best sellers for many years, and libraries with large pop culture, autobiography, and fiction collections should purchase this.--Pam Kingsbury, Alabama Humanities Fdn., Florence Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
