OUR GOOD, SHORT BOOKS

THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go (among other things)”

Dominique Eash of Pasadena, California, says “I definitely enjoyed this book. We get so caught up in movies, romance novels, etc. that we forget what really makes a relationship work! Not that those romantic things we see & read don’t ever happen, but this book really lays out clearly what we as women need to do to be successful at relationships. And “let him go” doesn’t mean break up with him… it means allow him freedom – don’t control him, don’t freak out if you don’t know exactly where he is all the time, don’t try so hard to change him. Allow your man to be himself! Make coming home worth it! And of course when you help promote this peaceful kind of existence, he will make you happy too!  The recipes at the end of the book are also amazing!”

The Wise Woman’s Stone

~ Author unknown

A wise woman, who was traveling in the mountains, found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.

But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. “I’ve been thinking,” he said. “I know how valuable this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone.”

********************************************

MY TAKE ON THIS STORY:  She was at peace with herself.  She could share her food and give him the precious stone because she was not concerned with material things.  She found the stone; it was not something of great value to her.  He did not have inner peace.  If he did, he would not have asked her for the stone.  But his soul was troubled, so he returned the stone, hoping to gain something more valuable in return.  Peace.

Be at peace with yourself.

What’s YOUR take on this story?
