For those of you that enjoyed Parts 1 and 2 of Tom’s new book, here is the free download of Part 3 of PLAYING the Game of Life WITH A FULL DECK
A Primer on Compassionate, Proactive Self Leadership and Personal Accountability … for conversations at the kitchen table
Here’s an extract I like which offers a little more on Tom’s approach:
“Many of us have not been aware of two essential components of human consciousness, the Negative Automatic Program, or ‘NAP’, and Spiritual Amnesia. This doubly unfortunate lack of awareness severely limits our experiences of awakening our personal potentials. I call this way of being ‘Not Playing with a Full Deck’. The truth is we were all dealt a full deck of cards for playing the game of life. However, none of us were made aware of the Two Jokers, the NAP and Spiritual Amnesia. When we feel confused, frustrated, and unfulfilled; and conclude that we have not been ‘Playing With A Full Deck’; the problem has not been too few cards, but two too many.”
Part 3: SPIRITUAL AMNESIA
“As a child, I was curious about wisdom. I wanted to learn how to be insightful, sage, and powerful. Of course, I didn’t even know those terms; but I was fascinated when an older person, who was almost everyone, would say or do something that seemed just right in response to what was happening. I noticed that when people acted in ways that just naturally fit the situation, they seemed to be at ease, confident, and rather pleased with life in general. I figured that if I was lucky, as I got older, I might somehow magically acquire this strange and wonderful ability. Then I, too, would be at ease, confident, rather pleased with life, and with myself“.
