Abraham Maslow has been credited with saying, "When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." This little book is intended to provide the reader with other simple tools for use through this struggle we call life. And part of this struggle stems from the fact that we believe that God is separate from us, someplace "out there" and is as unforgiving as we are. This book is not about "mind over matter." Letting go of old beliefs paves the way for the new and improved truths of the future. This book is about matters between you and "the force" or "the power" that is within you. This book is about hope; it's about making changes in your life, and it's time to join forces with the only source that can provide that hope.
