“If suffering were sufficient motivation for change, humanity would have transformed a long time ago.” So opens Living with Reality, the latest book by Beth Green, a 688-page discussion of the sources of needless suffering and a practical guide to the fundamental transformations that will enable us to live in greater harmony with ourselves, one another and life itself.
Living with Reality pulls no punches and sugar coats nothing. Life is tough, AND we create needless pain for ourselves and others. Why do we do it, and what can we do about it? These are just two of the questions brilliantly, simply and clearly answered by Living with Reality. Opening with a thorough and compassionate analysis of the ego, its genesis and its role in our dysfunction, Living with Reality continues with an original and profound perspective on the state of human consciousness, followed by a detailed guide to change. It is an encyclopedia of US – the way we are and the way we could be. And it is a handbook for getting there – becoming more happy, relaxed, creative, related, self-aware and at peace.
Living with Reality is different. It not only teaches oneness consciousness; every sentence, every chapter, reveals our unity and brings us to greater and greater awareness that we are all aspects of the divine. We come to understand that we are not separate individuals with separate problems. We are parts of a collective consciousness that needs transformation. As such, Living with Reality brings us profound compassion for ourselves and one another, reveals to us the sources of our destructive and self-destructive behaviors, reminds us of our simultaneous longing for oneness and mutual support, and guides us to a deeply spiritual life where we are connected moment-by-moment to higher consciousness.
A book of unswerving honesty about ourselves and our world, Living with Reality is inspirational, but it is more than inspirational. It is a practical program: nine platforms, or processes, which – if adopted – would change ourselves and change our world. It is specific, relatable, funny, and it works, containing specific teachings, processes, practices and exercises that help us
- connect to ourselves
- connect with one another
- connect to the divine
