Seeds for the Soul: The Wisdom of Chuck Hillig
There are times when it can be painful to allow ourselves to truly feel our feelings. Maybe we stifle tears or laughter when we think they aren’t appropriate. Maybe we don’t communicate our true feelings to those we love. Perhaps we refuse to feel feelings by repressing them. According to psychologist Chuck Hillig, the author of Seeds for the Soul: Living as the Source of Who You Are, this is because we’ve made the mistake of thinking there’s such a thing as a bad feeling. In reality, there are no bad feelings, only uncomfortable ones.
Today we’re sharing an excerpt from the audiobook Seeds for the Soul: Living As the Source for Who You Are. This short and witty audiobook combines the wisdom of eastern philosophy with the principles of western psychology. Chuck points the way to true happiness for those who have struggled to find peace of mind. He suggests that letting go of the illusion of control over life is the path to fulfillment. He touches on deep truths with a light hand. This audiobook is packed with nuggets of wisdom that you can turn to whenever you need guidance, clarity or inspiration.
