Why Bother? Because Self-Help is Never Stupid
TRANSFORM BEING PISSED-OFF, NUMB, in DENIAL, or EMOTIONAL INTO PEACE & PASSION
“Why Bother?” was written to encourage you to find a deeper knowing, awareness and appreciation for why it is important to bother. We live in a mad, pissed-off world, and we all want ways to step beyond just coping and into moments of peace, joy and contentment.
Anger, frustration, stress and more are triggered by the ego’s reaction to something that occurred in the past, and holds us hostage from living a more ideal future. Pain, abuse and suffering cannot be transformed by trivializing or denying its existence.
Heart-centered consciousness, while becoming main-stream, is often misunderstood, or perceived as weird yet offers a profound way to bring kindness, gentleness and compassion to everything. It is through integrating the heart with all parts of self that brings truth, light and beauty to the darkness that resides within us all, thereby allowing all parts and all voices of self to harmonize. Hence, this is a big “why bother” of the book.
Living through heart-centered conscious knowing and integrity provides a sense of strength, courage, support and comfort while facing the sometimes uncomfortable truth of reality. “Why Bother?” acknowledges that solving problems is not always as simple as “just sending love,” as many New-Age philosophies teach. It runs a gamut of topics, including creation, miscreation, co-creation, ego, embracing and acceptance of all aspects of self and others, forgiveness, abuse, dysfunction, meditation and exercises to process fear and anger but with an element of lightness and humor that isn’t always common in self-help. Why such a wide range? Because: our life experiences span a wide spectrum which is broader and deeper than just accepting the good with the bad.
The author uses her own fondness for rock music, referring to over 80 songs, knowing that music offers a healing resonance, and lyrics give voice to those who have not yet found theirs, adding an uplifting element to our tumultuous lives, inviting you to find the music, harmony and vibration of your soul.
