This book by our children is the result of a joyous journey. From the day we were inspired by the realization of the truth in the words "Children as Teachers of Peace"... to the invitation we issued that same week to children throughout the country to express their thoughts and advice about peace... to the day only five weeks later when this book was delivered to the publisher, we have been profoundly moved by the truth our children speak for all of us.
This handsome little book is unique in that it is about practical spirituality and is written, like Dr. Jampolsky's other books, in very simple, down-to-eart, easy-to-understand language. It explains why many of us find it so difficult to fogive, why we shoudl fogive, how to forgive, and why we don't forgive. Forgiveness also explains how the mind works in this process and points out the toxic, negative side effects of being unforgiving and the havoc it can play on our body and on our life. It also shows the physical and spiritual benefits of forgiving.
"I know that the thousands all over the world who love Jerry and whose lives have been enhanced by his message are eagerly looking forward to this new book. They have a treat in store. In clear and beautiful prose Jerry tells us that peace is a conscious choice. Saying good-bye to guilt is a vital step in making that choice. "--from the Foreword by John Denver. Love is where there is no fear. Fear is where there is no love. In our age of anxieties, most of us live by complex expectations about what we should achieve, how we should act, and how others should treat us. As a result, we are victimized by guilt and fear--guilt because our standards haven't been met in the past, fear that they won't be met in the future. Inevitable, these negative emotions wreak havoc on our personal relationships, self -esteem, and peace of mind. But what if we let go of our fear and guilt? The transformation can be miraculous, says world famous psychiatrist and author Gerald G. Jampolsky. The secret lies in healthy perception of yourself. Dr. Jampolsky points the way through fourteen lessons that can change your life. These lessons show: How to quiet the ego-self that creates fear and guilt. How to accept genuine love and give it away. How to stop judging others, thereby to stop judging yourself. How to listen to your inner voice to receive support and guidance. How to forgive others so that loneliness and separation become illusions of the past. And much more. Here is a book for everyone who seeks the key to life's most satisfying reward. A book that tells you how to throw off the burdens of the past, and learn what it can mean to truly love.
After more than thirty years, Love Is Letting of Fear continues to be among the most widely read and best-loved classics on personal transformation. Both helpful and hopeful, this little gem of a guide offers twelve lessons to help us let go of the past and stay focused on the present as we step confidently toward the future. Renowned all over the world as the founder of Attitudinal Healing, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky reminds us that the impediments to the life we long for are nothing more than the limitations imposed on us by our own minds. Revealing our true selves, the essence of which is love, is ultimately a matter of releasing those limited--and limiting--thoughts and setting our minds free. Love Is Letting of Fear has guided millions of readers along the path of self-healing with its deeply powerful yet profoundly humble message. Embrace it with an open mind and a willing heart and let it guide you to a life in which negativity, doubt, and fear are replaced with optimism, joy, and love.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Known for his extensive pioneering in the field of attitudinal healing, Dr. Jampolsky now shares his journey from severe depression, guilt and near alcoholism to a true "miracle": an inner healing and infusion of life that was truly against the odds.
More than twenty years after the publication of LOVE IS LETTING GO OF FEAR, best-selling author Gerald Jampolsky brings us the highly anticipated sequel. In SHORTCUTS TO GOD, Dr. Jampolsky sheds light on the human longing to be closer to the mystical parts of our lives, and teaches us to abandon our fears and embrace honesty, forgiveness, and love. When asked why the sequel has been so long in coming, Dr. Jampolsky explained that learning about love can be a lifelong expedition-one that has continuous cycles of hardship, fulfillment, and revelation, each of which builds on the past to shape the self. Fortunately for the rest of us, Dr. Jampolsky has emerged from his own spiritual journey much the wiser, and ready to share the insights and revelations he's gleaned along the way. SHORTCUTS TO GOD will jump-start your journey to love and spirituality, whether you're just starting down the path or well on your way to enlightenment.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Dr. Jampolsky believes there is another way of looking at life that makes it possible for us to walk through this world in love, at peace and without fear. This other way requires no external battles, but only that we heal ourselves. It is a process he calls "attitudinal healing," because it is an internal and primarily mental process. Jampolsky believes that attitudinal healing, when properly practiced, will allow anyone, regardless of her circumstances, to begin experiencing the joy and harmony that each moment holds, and to start her journey on a path of love and hope.The mind can be retrained. Within this fact lies our freedom. Our attitudes determine whether we experience peace or fear, whether we are well or sick, free or imprisoned. Love, in its true meaning, is the attitude that this book is about. Love is total acceptance and total giving--with no boundaries and no exceptions. Love, being the only reality, cannot be transformed. It can only extend and expand. It unfolds endlessly and beautifully upon itself. Love sees everyone as blameless, for it recognizes the light within each one of us is. Love is the total absence of fear and the basis for all attitudinal healing.The principles of attitudinal healing have been expanded since Teach Only Love was first published in 1983. There are now twelve principles, which are used in the 150 Centers for Attitudinal Healing around the world. Dr. Jampolsky believes that these principles have a universal appeal that crosses cultural and religious barriers. He has repeatedly seen how people's lives have transformed when these principles became their heartbeat and their way of communicating with others.

In 1975, Jerry Jampolsky cofounded the Center for Attitudinal Healing in Tiburon, California, where people with life-threatening illnesses practice peace of mind as an instrument of transformation. Based on the healing power of love and forgiveness, the 12 principles developed at the center, and explained in this book, embrace the idea that total giving and total acceptance are crucial to the healing process and that attitudinal healing can lead to harmony, joy, and life without fear.
