Living Life Fully

Living Life Fully

Upon reading the book titled Life Mastery: The Fully Functional Life! by Edward LewellenΒ I couldn't stop reading it from cover to cover. The book touches our hearts and stirs our minds with it depth and relevance to a huge issue- why people are losing control of their lives?

Try to answer this question before reading the book and then after reading it and you shall realize my claim that this book is for every one of us a proven claim.

The analogy that came to my mind while reading this book is fruits. When we peel fruits and throw them away we throw away about eighty percent of the nutrients of the fruit and so little is found in the core of the fruit. Many people lose their lives because they allowed all their nutrients- time, resources and works for others. The outside world (the outer shell of the fruit) has most of the nutrients and people tend to throw it away. Many people find themselves in spite of their huge successes ending thrown away and only with an empty core remaining for them. They have lost control of their lives.

As I was reading this book I remembered a story of a young lady who lost her husband because he decided to marry his wife's best friend. He divorced his wife and married her Β best friend. The divorced lady lost faith in all women in the world. She decided not to be friendly with any woman. She is filled with doubt from any woman. She is filed with the fear that all women shall betray her and she will be hurt again. She lost control of her life.

The lives of famous people are packed with examples to verify the solid approach of this book to lead a healthy lifestyle. There are many stories about actors who turned their role in a movie into their living life. They became the role they played and lost their core identities. Or, having a belief from their childhood that shaped the way they lived. One example is the book Humphrey Bogart: The Making of a Legend. The book reports that Humphrey had an inner feeling that he was gay. To prove his manhood he ended up sleeping with more than one thousand women. Our beliefs lead to our actions and form our life styles. Because they live in this role more often than not, it dominates every aspect of their life.

The book introduces the reader to six areas considered in Life Mastery: Living a Fully Functional Life:

Weight Loss

Healthy Fit Lifestyle

Financial Security

Relationships

Professional Development

Volunteering

Knowing your Core Identity, your Purpose, and your Vision are the bedrocks, the foundation, to having Life Mastery and living a fully functional life.
Edward Lewellen

To guide the reader to live a healthy life the author introduces a novel process called Dynamic Visualizationβ„’. This process helps the reader to abandon the role identity and live their own life. As simple as this process may be, it works. The process is basically an β€œIntellect without Emotions”. Reading the book will make this process easy to understand and employ to live a life devoid of acting a role than living your own.

This is a book of life because it tackles real life problems that we all encounter. I strongly recommend it for everybody because we are all part of the reality this book exposes.

If anytime the best suggestion would be to read the book, this book is it. I have already encountered several reviews and articles about Edward's book and they definitely point to this one being a very practical guide. Instead of a conversation about the human condition or views about human psychology, so much of what I have read points to penetrating practical insight born of lived realities. I can see why Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee praises this book - it gets to the heart and nub of the matter and I look forward to reading it also.

Emotions of the pst can be detrimental sometimes and removing them would be helpful. So, I prefer to leave the detailed answer to the author Edward Lewellen for expressing your opinion and differences in such a candid manner.

I don't flatter and I can't afford to recommend a book that would not live up to my words and the expectations I create with the readers. I shall lose trust and nobody shall believe me. In this case I say firmly this is a book worthy of reading and applying its lessons. You are right and I promise that the book shall fulfill your expectations.

This sounds like an essential read for all of us...as we have all played the role of the imposter at some point in our lives...It's a very frightening thing to take a good long look at what lies behind that mask...but it's the very thing we've been searching for all along...The truth. Thank you for tagging me here Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee...would have been a shame to have missed this one;-)

I am sure Louise Smith would have included your story in his book. You said "It took me a long time to realize....), I believe Edward with his Visual Dynamic process would have shortened this time for you. Let us hope Edward would respond soon to your comment (if he is awake). You are brave Louise to share your story.

From childhood my life was always very structured. Then I worked as a teacher of deaf children, multiply disabled and then high school students. so my life was even more structured than structured. I say about that time that "my life was planned in 15 minute intervals". I rarely had time to sit and eat lunch or enjoy a coffee let alone go the the Ladies ! As a result of this constant on the go multi tasking life environment it took me a long time to realise that I could choose my attitude in any given set of circumstances.

I chose to read this in High School Edward Lewellen ! It's about choice but before that it's about realising there is choice regardless of the actual circumstance and people involved. Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. Frankl says, β€œBetween stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedomsβ€”to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to "change ourselves".” (Italics are Edward Lewellen's)
