Read full description of the books The Only Little Prayer You Need: The Shortest Route to a Life of Joy, Abundance, and Peace of Mind:"We need to encourage an understanding that inner peace comes from relying on human values like love, compassion, tolerance, and honesty, and that peace in the world relies on individuals finding inner peace." --His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
These six words--"please heal my fear-based thoughts"--change lives. In this brief and inspiring book, based on Engle's study of "A Course in Miracles," she explains how to use the prayer and experience immediate benefits:
being less irritable, more patientlaughing morefeeling like you have more time, more energyworrying lessmaking decisions more easilysaying no without guilt
A typical prayer goes something like this: ""Please help us find the money to pay our mortgage this month."" Saying the prayer may help you feel like the burden of that month's mortgage has been lifted, but the part of you that feeds on fear will simply seek out new financial worries to keep you awake at night. Old patterns remain intact.
In contrast, asking, " "Please heal my fear-based thoughts about our mortgage"" lifts the burden AND relieves the need to re-create that fear and hold onto it. This prayer heals your very desire for burdens, your addiction to fear-based thoughts, freeing you to live without that fear and with greater peace of mind. As a result, your financial situation is also free to improve. That's what makes it so different.
One Facebook fan told Engle, ""The most blessed aspect of this prayer is all the open space it creates for peace--I never knew how many fear-based thoughts were clogging up in me until... this prayer.""
Read information about the authorI grew up loving books. Some of my earliest memories are of trips to the grand old library in downtown Des Moines, where we'd pull book after book off the shelves in the children's section and carry them home with great anticipation.
One of my sisters (I'm the youngest of six kids) and I had an ongoing contest to see who could read the most Newbery Award books. We'd pick up bookmarks at the library that listed all the award winners, then we'd lose ourselves in Islands of the Blue Dolphins, Up a Road Slowly and A Wrinkle in Time.
Today, books continue to sustain me as both a reader and author because it takes so much care to craft a book and bring it to fruition. Books allow us to sink deep into a story, experience “ah-ha” moments that cause us to put the book down for a moment to catch our breath, and nudge us to see ourselves and the world in new ways.
Years ago, in meditation, I suddenly had an image of myself sitting in front of a coffee table covered with books that I'd written or contributed to. This was before my first book was published, so I was taken aback to see those volumes, looking as if they already existed. I had the sense that writing them had been easy—that they had created themselves.
Now, several books later, I can tell you they did take some effort. But each had an impetus for being written—-a story that needed to be told, an inspiration that insisted on being shared, a message that was determined to change the world. I think of a book as the fulfillment of a contract between Spirit, the author who follows that internal guidance, and the readers who select the book, hopefully with the same anticipation my sister and I had for those Newbery Award winners.
Books come about because, as writers and readers, we say yes to a seed of inspiration and then allow it to grow within us. "We read to know we're not alone," said C.S. Lewis’ character in Shadowlands. I’m happy, and infinitely grateful, to write for the same reason.
