The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown
"...shares ten guideposts on the power of Wholehearted living—a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.
Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, "What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?"
In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, "No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough," and to go to bed at night thinking, "Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging." copied from Amazon

The Way of Mastery by the Shanti Christo Foundation
"Shanti Christo is one expression of a vibration of the process whereby Heaven is brought to Earth. Shanti Christo means “the Peace of the Anointed One”. It is a vision from Jeshua of a “way” to truly remember we remain all we are created to be: The perfect thought of Love in form.
As more of us come together in perfect safety, in perfect vulnerability, to celebrate and to heal anything unlike Love - that is, all of our misperceptions that lead to suffering and lack, fear and loss - we can have the experience of realizing there is a power in us that far transcends anything life can hand us."
