I took my time reading: The Essential Laws of Fearless Living: Find the Power to Never Feel Powerless Again by Guy Finley.
There are times when his prose rises up off the page with their brilliance, other times you find yourself rereading text to mine the deep levels of understanding that layer his thoughts.
Guy Finley does not spare you the need to really work at the concepts he talks about. This book is not pablum for the masses but a serious, thoughtful work aimed at getting you to look deeper into his subject: fearless living.
Guy uses two devices throughout the book, that work splendidly to enhance your understanding of his key points. These devices are part of the Finley trademark. He starts each chapter with a Key Lesson for us to learn and absorb into our being. Then at the end of each section, he summarizes for us with highlighted “special key lessons” that simply repeat or restate the points he has made so far.
There is a good reason for these devices. Guy Finley takes us deep into our hearts with complex questions and mind bending wisdom which in the end so worth the journal when you find yourself lifted high my the beauty of his words.
If you are looking for a quick read this is not the book for you. Rather, this is a book to travel with, to refer to, to ponder deep into the night.
If you are serious about self-discovery and growth, of the journey back to the real you, then this book will deliver to your many special and mind blowing insights into the realm of the mind and the soul.
Here are just a couple of quotes from the book I thought I would share.
“When we stand on the ocean shore, silently seeing the expansive waters spread out begore us, we enter into their depths. Where is the true deep id not within the consciousness that reflects it?”
“Stillness is the path of revelation: no other path to the truth of yourself exists, because the freedom you long to be is found only in one place: within you awareness of the evergreen flowering of God‘s life endlessly releasing itself through rebirth.

Quote on Books
A book is a human-powered film projector (complete with feature film) that
advances at a speed fully customized to the viewer’s mood or fancy. This rare harmony between object and user arises from the minimal skills required to manipulate a bound sequence of pages. Each piece of paper embodies a corresponding instant of time which remains frozen until liberated by the
act of turning a page.”
