Customers who bought this item also bought
Confronting and solving problems is a painful process which most of us attempt to avoid. Avoiding resolution results in greater pain and an inability to grow both mentally and spiritually. Drawing heavily on his own professional experience, Dr M. Scott Peck, a psychiatrist, suggests ways in which facing our difficulties - and suffering through the changes - can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding. He discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become one's own person and how to be a more sensitive parent. This is a book that can show you how to embrace reality and yet achieve serenity and a richer existence. Hugely influential, it has now sold over ten million copies - and has changed many people's lives round the globe. It may change yours.Product Features: Binding: PaperbackLanguage of Text: EnglishPublication Year: 2012Number of Pages: 324ISBN: 9781846041075Product Dimensions:

There is one part of the work that really addresses this becoming one with God. It’s called the Odes of the Holy Trinity. I call it God’s discourse on mystical marriage. There are other mystics who have tried to describe this process, mystics like St. John of the Cross and St. Theresa of Avila. I personally find reading them difficult, not so the Odes. For example, in the Ode of the Father, He writes:
Scriptures say: "happy the pure in heart, they shall see God;" today, Vassula, everyone sees as far as they are able to see, but I am telling you all, you too could be counted among My saints who are fit to see Me if you allowed My Holy Spirit to pass through you to shatter all your impurities, and once purity is acquired, the vision of Myself will be given you;
It seems simple enough, invite the Holy Spirit to pass through us and shatter our impurities. How do we do that? What are our impurities? Maybe that’s what Scott was talking about, this work and struggle of life. Ah, but the reward is out of this world, to be one with God, to become Love itself. Veni Sancte Spiritus!
