I purchased copies of “The Secret”, both the book and the DVD, for many of my friends and family members, but in the end, I thought it was missing something. Not so with the author’s second book, “The Power.” This time, it’s all there. I not only plan to reread “The Power”, I plan to study it.
What is the Power, anyway? You won’t be surprised when I tell you: it’s LOVE, of course. And I think we hear and read that word so often that many of us have become numb to it. “The Power” certainly gave me a new and deeper understanding–it’s an indepth description of how to love, not just romantically, but in the broader sense. Like, love thy neighbor. (Well, that’s great, but exactly HOW does one go about that, especially if said neighbor happens to be a real pain in the patoot?) (Just an example, folks. My neighbors are nice people.)
This reminds me of a story about my dad. A long, long time ago, he read one (count ‘em, one) self-help book. It was called, “How to Live 24 Hours a Day”. In typical Skip Lael fashion, he took in the info, applied it to his life, and never felt the need to read another book of that kind. I wish I could say I’m that quick of a study myself, but I’m not. I’ve read hundreds of these books. And I’ve got to tell you, if I HAD only read one, I’d want it to be “The Power”.
