Then what do angels leave? Angels -- perfect, unchanging, without the ability to make of themselves more than they are -- leave us humans aware that we are unique because we can change and grow. We do leave footsteps as wemarchthrough life -- and one who follows those footsteps back through the stages of our lives, will see that we have changed.
Have we changed for the better? Lots of times. More to the point is this question: How can we understand our strengths so that we will know how to build on them? What is there about us that is holding us back? How can we leapfrog the obstacles?
Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. is a master at answering such questions. Take the case of the lawyer who was successful in his profession, an effective community leader, a dynamo of energy for good causes, a good husband and father -- but though basking in admiration, the man felt no satisfaction in all his triumphs. Why wasn’t he happy? Twerski shines a light on the dark secret for him and for us, and in the process brightens the man’s life, without diminishing his accomplishments.
Rabbi Twerskishows us all how to see the inner good that is obscured by the debris of everyday life. Angels do their job and move on without leaving a mark, but human beings stumble and scrape their knees -- and wonder if they can get anything right. They absolutely can -- and this book proves it!
“Hopeless” is not in the Twerski vocabulary, and he shows how to remove it from ours. In his many popular and powerful books, he looks at life and its problems and guides us around the pitfalls and into the sunlight. Packed with stories, saturated with practical advice, this book shreds the cobwebs that hobble the human spirit and focuses on opportunity and optimism.
