Jump … And Your Life Will Appear
An inch-by-inch Guide To Making A Major Change
I found this book enjoyable to read. Nancy Levin describes how her life wasn’t going well and, even though it was safer to stay in the known, not so nice situation, she eventually summoned up the courage to leave her husband. This was her “jump”. She then describes how her life opened up into something she never anticipated. She goes on to say that life is full of situations that require a “jump”. These jumps can be large or small but they challenge us regularly. That’s where much of the pleasure in life comes from.
In “Jump … And Your Life Will Appear”, Nancy describes her step-by-step plan for getting through challenging jumps. I’m sure this book will be helpful to a large number of people struggling with real life situations. Much of the information is reminiscent of Finding Joe and The Law of Attraction.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book;
What I’ve learned is that, in life, we get what we’re committed to at the deepest level. We tell ourselves we’re committed to happiness, but deep down, we’re actuarially committed to something else – like being indispensable, staying safe, or putting others’ needs ahead of our own
Learning to trust another is actually about learning to trust yourself
I used to think love would come from the outside in, but I know now that is must come from the inside first.
I discovered that if you aim your compass at chaos, a map will present itself
If your past choices got you to the present, your present choices will take you into the future
As they say, nothing pours from an empty pitcher
Once you have touched it, you can never more pretend you do not know the essence of love that you are
The person your mind thinks you are is only a fraction of your totality
Every cell and atom in my body aligned with the energetic forces that animate me – my spirit, mind, heart and will
Life is about expanding into the unknown and exploring the mysteries that surround us
But how boring would it be if already knew what every experience would be like?
The unknown holds what we wish for, because we all wish for something different
There is no destination. You’re never “there”. You’re always becoming. You’ll always be jumping – over and over and over. And that’s a good thing.
Go live your life – the one you were meant to live
