Book Reviews - Clear Your Energy System
by Suma Varughese
The Only Way Out is Within ,Written By: Rohini Singh, Published By: Hay House, Pages: 258 pages, Price: Rs 195
Here is one more book that takes a holistic approach to the question of well-being: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Rohini Singh approaches the issue from the point of view of energy and proceeds to dissect the causes that block and stop our energy system, eventually manifesting in diseases. She identifies negative emotions as one of the main sources of energy depletion. She points out that when we habitually resort to this behaviour, we lose self-empowerment because when our energy is low, even small problems are magnified and lead to a sense of victimisation.
Going further, she pinpoints the ego as the main cause of negative feelings fo these are ploys to keep the ego alive. As many have pointed before there are only two basic emotions, she says, love and fear. Love is the currency of the Higher Self and fear that of the ego. All negative feelings are a variation of fear. Moving on, she guides us to the possibility of taking responsibility for our lives and recognising that we create our own destiny.
There is, of course, nothing radically new about this book. The same truths have been expressed from time immemorial. But the clarity and energy with which she presents her arguments, and her engaging style gives this book a certain charm.
