The title promises far more than the book can deliver.The author endorses the idea that people remain unchanged, the same person from birth to old age. This is the complete opposite of what I had expected to find in the book, coming from the Buddhist notion of true nature in an ever-changing being. I could not make it past the first 3 or 4 chapters.

In this eloquent and evocative book, Sarah Ban Breathnach encourages you to become an archaeologist of you Self: to plumb your past with its unfulfilled longings, forgotten pleasures, and abandoned dreams, to "excavate" the authentic woman buried inside.

I've dipped into this book many times over the years, but it has never made much difference to me. ( )

I decided I didn't need this book. Either I have no authentic self or I've had it so long it just seems natural to me. Also, on a recent trip I happened to catch a little of the author's story on Oprah's new network and I'm afraid I don't think I should be taking advice from someone who appeared to have a serious shoe shopping addiction.

Een boek moet een bijl zijn voor de bevroren zee in ons binnenste.

Franz Kafka
ik voel dat er in mij bedolven levens zijn die naar buiten willen en zich willen uiten.

Marge Piercy
Geboren worden is slechts slapen en vergeten:
de ziel die met ons opkomt, de levensster,
was elders reeds gezeten,
en komt van o zo ver:
niet in volkomen vergetelheid....


William Wordsworth

Wie gepassioneerd leeft, leert ons liefhebben.
Wie gepassioneerd liefheeft, leert ons leven.

First words
Human beings, as far as I can tell, seem to be divided into two subspecies--the resigned, who live in quiet desperation, and the exhausted who exist in restless agitation.
