Source's Challenge—Going Beyond Spirituality is not about the life I have had. My past is my past; it does not define who I am. Instead, my past defines the people who have been in my life and the influences they have had on me. There is nothing wrong with this. Actually, I thank them for being there for me. Who I am personality-wise is a consequence of my past—a 'conditioning', one might say.
As an individual, my challenge as an adult has been to un-condition myself—to find what I am made of, to be a consequence of myself, and to be at peace with this.
Yes, others have had worse lives than me, but are they (and if you have picked up this book, are you), willing to move past your past and be un-conditioned? To move past the pain and hurt, the agony of being eaten away by the emotions brought about by family and life history? To face the new challenge of finding the real self? To let go of who you think you are and to find who you truly are?
Source's Challenge—Going Beyond Spirituality is meant to be used as a guide to question what one thinks, how one acts, why something happened, when it will change, and where one is going. The first step is to realise that everyone may not see from the same perspective, but no one is not alone in endeavours of searching for the Truth. And that Truth is who you really are.
