Discover how to get Through the Tough Times, Find the Deeper Meaning in the Challenges, & Fully Live & Embrace Life!
There’s an expression I once heard from the late Dr. Wayne Dyer, you must die while you’re still alive, or you must almost go through your own death in order to truly live. Well, having gone through two near-death experiences, I think there’s something to that, though I’d never wish it on anyone.
But there’s a simpler way too, if we can open up our hearts and learn from others.
In this episode, we have an amazing spiritual teacher on the show. Mark Nepo is the New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have and his new book Inside the Miracle: Enduring Suffering, Approaching Wholeness.
He’s experienced incredible suffering while having cancer not once, but twice, and at the same time as his former wife. But even in his darkest moments he didn’t become bitter; instead, he’s learned how to truly live, and I believe he’d even call it a miracle.
And that’s what we talk about–how to embrace life fully, to overcome fear and to dive in, head-on and heart-on.
