Overcoming Suffering Through Faith, Positive Thinking and Organic Diet
16 April, 2014
The author is a real estate businessman by profession who wanted to shift his focus on teaching about Amazing Life, when all of a sudden, everything changes diversely against his fate.
The author, a father of four children, is affected by a severe colon disorder (Ulcerative Colitis) leading to unbearable pain and agony for over two months at home and hospital. He witnesses and experiences the severest of pain in this world with blood stools, frequent puking, and never ending sleepless painful nights. He loses weight by over forty pounds during this time and almost comes face to face with death. Just at this time, he gets operated and gets his colon (part of large intestine) removed forever, by a smart doctor. But his mental torture doesn’t stop there! His eight year old son gets mentally affected due to the dilapidated conditions at home and almost kills himself, one day. The author with the help of his ever supporting wife Nan, overcomes this emotional suffering by following some valid points, which are worth reading.
The author uses his personal story to educate the reader as to how one can combat pain and suffering through faith, positive attitude towards life, and some dietary changes, in order to achieve the Amazing Life, one always has around the corner. To get this, its all in the positive thought process of such persons only.
Positives: The reader stands benefited by getting to learn the importance of faith in God, positive thinking attitude (that all pain and suffering ultimately leads to something for your own good), and that there is nothing called a Bad Day in anyone’s life. This is truly motivating for a person who is depressed and feels that he is on the edge of an emotional collapse. The importance of healthy organic food, substituting the processed food is also emphasized by the author, for a healthy and positive living. I feel that this book should be in the library of every person who once in a while feels that he is born for troubles and his life is not worth living. This book has one of the best Epilogues ever read by me till now. There are also suggestions of valuable books to read written by famous authors, in order to have more control over negative emotions.
Negatives: The author always feels thankful and emotionally strong for every bad thing that happens to him despite being stumped many times with repeated excruciating pain in the abdomen and many emotional blackouts. This, I think, was possible only because of his ever supporting wife, siblings and in-laws which might not be available for many of the kind, across the world. In fact half the suicides in the world are attributed to lack of support from the family members when the person is emotionally and physically subdued. Somehow, I feel the author was lucky to have this……!
