yeah i agree with you.. that book is what led me to being at peace with now and accepting what is.. When I live in the Now its wonderful.. I remember when I first read the book and it transferred me out of focusing on my skin being OCD with picking etc and starting focusing on the beauty of life.. it was a true transformation when I read that book.. Then it led me to other books like Louise Hay etc and Abraham Hicks which helped me create a better future with better thoughts. I realized that I did create my suffering through acne which did lead to en enlightened state of being. Before I was just superficial like you said... VERY and could not see past the beauty.. Now I am humble and I have found so much more to life worth living for then just myself.
Alex- that is great that you started reading those books.. Piratebay offers a lot of downloads for those of you who cant afford them. I believe all of Kelly howells albums are on there as well as louise hay affirmations, eckhart tolles books on CD (all of them) and abraham hicks.
What people with acne need to understand (including me who has went through this process) is that we are what we think. Every thing we perceive to believe is true will become true for us eventually. For years I criticized myself and it resulted in acne. Now I love myself (for the most part) and it resolved in a happier life with no acne.
And the hoper is right.. through the suffering so much can be gained . So if you asked me now if I could go back and not go through the experience no way!
Hoper- I probably need to reread the power of now.. Right now I am rereading Louise Hay - You can heal your life.. Ask and it is given by Abraham Hicks and the Divine Romance by Paramahansa Yogananda. I do have his CDs on tape which I might go listen to later ( I have went through abkout 10 of his books and given them all away which has resulted in my having none at the moment lol)
