I fondly anticipated the release of your book. I’ve also suffered from anxiety disorder in the past. You were one of the first people I talked to about it. You dared to listen, because you too shared your experience. I’m therefore one of those who your book has had a tremendous impact on. I felt what you were going through while reading, more so than you can possibly imagine. Literally and in full. I read the book slowly, by no means did I dare devour it in one sitting because that would have been disrespectful. Slowly, with feeling. I felt every sentence, paragraph, thought, pain at the beginning of the book and your glorious realisation at the end. It wasn’t reading, it was feeling all the way through.
Your book helped me drag anxiety into the light, face it, and talk about it. I am no longer ashamed. Even if it happens again, I am now unafraid of this condition. Complete victory, a feeling of freedom, burdenless. It’s like rolling a huge bolder of my chest.
You moved me, my dear Tatjana. For that I am grateful to heaven and back. I can truly say that God himself has sent you. He really has.
And certainly not just to me.
I found the last third of the book especially impactful. You describe the deep discovery of your true self, list all your insights, especially those you present from the standpoint of pure consciousness, from the heart and depth of your soul, with concise, meaningful sentences – indescribably beautiful. It is very difficult to describe in words the feelings that washed over me as I read. It wasn’t really reading but a deep spiritual and physical reaction, accompanied by tears and a tingling sensation. My heart filled with warmth as I merged with what was written, stopped at every sentence or word, tried to literally suck it all into my being. Every sentence hit the nail on the head. I cannot emphasise enough what powerful emotions your book triggered. To quote Dušan Badovinac’s masterful commentary to your book: “At any given moment, a kind of simultaneity occurs between the book and its reader.” To me, this was happening all the time, every single moment.
Recent years have seen the increase and accessibility of literature on personal growth, self-awareness, self-discovery, pure consciousness, and other means of lifting the veil from our mind that prevents us from being who we are. I’ve read a lot of it and still do. But when someone discloses so honestly the truth based on their own experience, however painful that experience may be, a whole new dimension opens up. That’s what makes your book brilliant. Simply because it speaks the TRUTH. Only the truth can move someone so profoundly.
I am absolutely convinced that your book is destined to help a great number of people reach a higher plain of existence, something than took you 11 years to achieve.
Your book is a GIFT to all of us, probably most of us are not even aware of what a magnificent work it is. THANK YOU.
