Falling in Love with Where You Are: A Year of Prose and Poetry on Radically Opening Up to the Pain and Joy of Life

Availability: Ready to download

As we open up to life and love and each other, as we awaken from our dream of separation, we encounter not just the bliss of existence, but its pain, too; not only life’s ecstasy, but also its agony. Healing doesn’t always feel good or comfortable or even “spiritual,” for we are inevitably forced to confront our shadows, fears, and deepest longings—those secret parts of ou As we open up to life and love and each other, as we awaken from our dream of separation, we encounter not just the bliss of existence, but its pain, too; not only life’s ecstasy, but also its agony. Healing doesn’t always feel good or comfortable or even “spiritual,” for we are inevitably forced to confront our shadows, fears, and deepest longings—those secret parts of ourselves that we have denied, repressed, or deemed “negative” and unworthy of our love. How can we find the calm in the midst of the storm? How can we rest, even as the ground falls? Falling in Love with Where You Are invites you to discover a deep YES to your life, no matter what you are going through; to see crisis as an opportunity to heal, pain as an intelligent messenger, and your imperfections as perfectly placed. Through his prose and poetry, Jeff Foster will guide, provoke, encourage, and inspire you on your lonely, joyful, and sometimes exhausting pathless journey to the Home you never, ever left: the present moment. “Even in your glorious imperfection,” Jeff reminds us, “you were always a perfect expression of life, a beloved child of the universe, a complete work of art, unique in all the world...”

    "we only want our wanting to end. want means lack. what do you lack in this moment?". There are some insightful questions to ask if you really want to know and accept yourself or life in general. I gave my first 5* in a while, took me only two days to read it but it will be a nice challenge to read each chapter in its specific month. Guess I have to get back to that September and the meaning of beauty around us. "we only want our wanting to end. want means lack. what do you lack in this moment?".

    Hablar de este libro es hablar de la vida misma. Los capítulos se organizan por meses y cada mes recoge una serie de reflexiones. Jeff Foster consigue traspasar la teoría del no dualismo y acercanos a la vida desde todas las perspectivas, desde las más luminosas a las más oscuras, siempre guiados por el hilo del amor. Enamórate del lugar en el que estás solo significa que te enamores de ti, lo cual parece, parece muy sencillo, pero ...no te engañes, no es remotamente sencillo ni fácil.

    Interesting An interesting insight into accepting the here and now and that now is all there ever is. Thought provoking and liberating. Whilst I read this during a state of no distress or upset, I still appreciated the message. Would recommend for anybody, particularly those seeking to find peace or make sense of their despair. A good lesson that no matter what we are going through or what we are feeling, accept it and turn towards it. Breathe, feel and be grateful!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It accompanied me throughout this year as I delved into the passages/poems/stories it tells each month. There are so many good lines and citations, too many actually so go and discover those that are compelling to you. I'm enjoying and feeling grateful for each moment...

    Jeff Foster's teachings are essential and I love the way this book is set up, would be a good introduction to him or to pick up and put down forever!

    Format: Audiobook I could listen to this again for the medicine of the Truths within this book.

    This is a very beautiful book, really enjoying it. It is to be read with a pinch of salt in the sense that it quite often will seemingly imply not to try and find anything at all, which can be aggravating for anyone on a journey in this area! The most important thing is to read it, reflect, and see how it makes you feel :)
