I Am the Lotus, Not the Muddy Pond
“This is one of the most amazing books I have read along the topic of spiritual growth. The knowledge you will gain from reading this book is mind-blowing! Many parts of this book will become ‘ah ha’ moments for you as you awaken to the truth and realities of our existence on this earth. Mandy puts into words what many have been feeling yet, didn’t know how to express…We are at a place at this time in our existence that, as you read each chapter, you will find it speaks directly to your higher self as an affirmation to its truth. You will find that this is a book to be read, and re-read again and again as we grow along our spiritual development.”~ Belle Salisbury, Owner and editor-in-chief of Bellesprit Magazine
I Am the Lotus, Not the Muddy Pond: Achieving Peace Through Non-Conformity is a response to what author Mandy Peterson sees as a philosophical “split” that is occurring within the mind and intentions of those who have been part of the New Age movement for the past two decades. Providing numerous examples, she shows us the difficulties that arise when individuals pursue ascension and higher consciousness while being encouraged at the same time to remain locked in an unconscious mind-set of materialism that fosters anxiety, paranoia and fear, and which negatively impacts our individual and collective health, happiness and overall well-being.
Throughout the book, Mandy explores the collective mind that has programmed us to think and believe things as we do. She shows how focusing too much on positives versus negatives can often influence us to reject our “darker” emotional side, and how this creates a lost sense of Self, and feelings of disconnection and unworthiness. Boldly challenging pop-culture ideas about the Law of Attraction, she shows how to understand more deeply what we are really manifesting in our lives, and turn it all around so we can create balance, inner peace and love—at a personal and planetary level.
I Am the Lotus, Not the Muddy Pond: Achieving Peace Through Non-Conformity reveals how to un-weave our unconscious, self-destructive thought patterns, so we can rise above the “Muddy Pond” of conditioned beliefs and social conformity, and step into our true, unique and perhaps even radical essence—“The Lotus.”
