WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE When to make a Change—and When to Let Go Eileen Flanagan
Thousands of people have been moved by the famous last lines of the Serenity Prayer:
'God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other'.
But how exactly can we know the difference? How can we acknowledge our true limits without negating the possibility for dramatic change?
In this inspiring book, Eileen Flanagan draws on her own Quaker faith as well as a range of other religious and spiritual traditions to show readers how they can learn to listen to their own inner voice in determining when a change is needed in their lives or when instead acceptance is the answer.
These lessons come to life through the inspiring stories of various individuals, including:
· the mother of a fallen soldier in Iraq who talks about the power of forgiveness and her work to end the war;
· the former director of Oprah's school for girls in South Africa who explains how sometimes the best teaching involves giving your students the freedom to learn for themselves;
· a family therapist who shares what he learned about accepting the things he cannot change from the car accident that left him paralysed.
This illuminating book leads readers to discover the serenity that comes when one has gained “the wisdom to know the difference.”

WRITING DOWN YOUR SOUL How to Activate and Listen to the Extraordinary Voice Within Janet Conner
You could pray, meditate, dream, or visit a shaman or a minister or a hypnotherapist. With so many routes into inner consciousness, why write? Of all the ways to get in touch with God, as you understand God... to hear the small, still voice pointing you in the right direction... why take the time to write?
One reason: it works. It works amazingly well. If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just a hair below your conscious awareness, write. Write every day, at approximately the same time, with passion, honesty and the intention of speaking with and listening to the voice within.
Janet Conner was escaping a terrible situation of domestic abuse. While trying to work out how she and her son could live and how they could eat, she realised she had hit rock bottom. With no other advisors, she listened to her own inner voice, which told her to start writing. As she did, Janet's inner voice gained clarity and strength and she felt an incredible connection to the divine and almost immediately miracles began to happen.
Today, research scientists in psychology, physics, biochemistry and neurology are providing peeks into what consciousness is and how it works. Their findings give us intriguing clues as to what is actually happening in and through our bodies, minds and spirits as we put pen to paper. WRITING DOWN YOUR SOUL explores some of this research and teaches readers how to access the power and beauty of their own deepest selves.
