Choose Again! By Art Drentlau

        

This book is a clear example of good things (very good things!) coming in small packages.  The number of pages may be small, but the message is powerful and inspirational.

Author Art Drentlau relays a story that he says has been told in one form or another in other books.  But here, he fleshes it out and brings it to life, and then uses it as a motivational tool.  It’s the story of a man nicknamed “Will Bill Cody”, who suffered atrocities during World War II at the hands of the Nazis. His family was torn from him with devastating results (sound timely?), yet he chose, in an instant, to somehow muster the grace to turn the situation into a positive and life-affirming experience.  His life was spared and because of that, Bill  went on to help others in a remarkable way, because he experienced an epiphany of his own oneness with God. He allowed himself to align himself with his higher mind.

The moral of the story, as eloquently relayed by the author, is that, as the subtitle implies, we are all capable of more than we believe.  We are all better than we think we are and should strive to not only accept this but adopt it as part of our daily lives and mindset.  If we focus on what we don’t want, and on what we are not, that is what comes forward.  But if we believe we can have, or already do have, something better, and believe that we are acting as our higher self, that is what manifests in our life.  The reader is left with a feeling of wanting to go forward to achieve all that is possible.  It helps eliminate the feeling of self doubt or low self esteem.

I can see the author, should he continue in this genre of writing, bringing forth many other such motivational books.  It will be exciting to see!
