Have you ever been faced with a decision when your head says one thing and your heart says another? For example, you want to make a career change; your head tells you to follow the path of security, but your heart tells you to follow your passion. Or you are locked in a personal relationship conflict and your head says you are right, but your heart tells you to forgive and let go. Fran Hewett calls these two conflicting influences the Ego and the Spirit.The Ego is that controlling voice of your mind that drives you to seek safety, perfection, and the approval of others--it will keep you captive. In contrast, the voice of your Spirit is that reassuring voice that insists, urges, and shows you the way to love. It's the voice of your heart--a call to live life without fear.In the pages of this profoundly inspiring book, Hewitt reveals 35 authentic snapshots of life that will entertain, enlighten, and challenge readers to think about their own life experiences. Some of these vignettes are poignant, others are funny, and many are personal, yet in each one readers will witness the daily struggle between Ego and Spirit. The Ego and the Spirit is a genuinely life-changing book--not about religion or philosophy--it is about living fully, loving freely, and letting go. It is about how to live--without a doubt--a richer and more meaningful life.
