I am Part Way through my Real Love Journey. I believe it never ends. I understand that there is always more to experience and learn. This book by Greg Baer, The Truth About Love and Lies, has been a catalyst for me, verifying, reminding, and helping me to acknowledge the truth about myself, my own sneaky getting and protecting behaviours, the reasons why I made the decisions that I did in my life, how to accept myself and to learn about giving Real Love to others. It has been a joy to read and I will recommend it to anyone who is at the beginning or middle of their Real Love journey. The statement I read in it, 'Feelings are a direct result of judgements that we make based on past experience' has had a profound effect on me. Beginning to understand the emotional hazard I have inflicted on myself and others because of the judgements I made about life when I was only young and thought I was entirely 'right' has been a complete revelation. This book has been a Joy for me to encapsulate what I have learned and have begun to put into practice so far. Trusting and feeling loved is the best experience in the universe. To be trusted and loving is the ultimate. I shall refer to and read this book over and over. It is a gem amongst Greg Baers writings.
