The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity: A Wealth of Inspiring Insight: Part Three - Divine Purpose

Gaines provides numerous methods to help one identify their Divine purpose. She guides the reader through the process of writing a vision statement, getting in touch with their God-given "inner-guidance system" that feels joy, and learning to be aware of the "go, stop, and second force" to guide their journey. As part of this critical commitment process, she also encourages us on our mission of self-care and living with integrity, which to Gaines entails "allowing others to behave the way they please and just [loving] them."

While interspersing passages of Scripture throughout the book, Gaines never becomes preachy. She herself explains that, while many of her beliefs originated in the teachings of the Unity Church, many of the ideas that she expresses in the book are the result of years of prayer, meditation, Scripture reading, and trial and error from living.

Balancing her eloquent words of wisdom are splashes of witty recitations from family and friends. As her wise granddaddy once said, "Edwene, honey, when you have to swallow a frog, it's best not to look at it too long. And if you have to swallow more that one, swallow the big one first." Not surprising, tithing was Edwene's big frog.

If you're ready to "increase your [bliss] tolerance" and prepared to "move beyond a commitment to survive into a commitment to prosper," I highly recommend that you read Edwene Gaines' "The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity: A Simple Guide to Unlimited Abundance." Gain insight and be inspired by the belief that "…a life of prosperity is about far more than money. It is about experiencing joy, achieving your greatest possibilities, and being all that your Divine Mother/Father brought you here to be." Who could ask for more than that?
