By Gary Zukav
I loved the whole book, but especially the part about cause and effect. Zukav talks about getting to the bottom of what your motivations are. He says you should ask yourself what you're trying to get out of every interaction. I really responded to the notion of "dress rehearsal"—how some experiences are practice for what's to come. I remember auditioning for a woman I couldn't stand. I kept feeling depleted every time we met. The book reframed the situation for me.
I realized there was a reason I was going through this. Maybe I needed to learn that I didn't have to participate in this project or that it was a dress rehearsal for another level in my life where I choose not to work with abusive people.
