Silent by Gregory Malouf

Self Acceptance Is A Condition Precedent To Reaching Out To Others

< read all 1 reviews

Self Acceptance Is Critical

  • Nov 1, 2013
Rating:
+4
Silent is a book about the dynamics of the inner
self in the never-ending quest to triumph over the
negative aspects of the ego. Malouf teaches that
the ego cannot love. It is absolutely self-centered
and unloving. In fact, the ego is what separates us
unnecessarily from other people. Seeking acceptance
from others means that the ego is in control of your
life. 
 
The book goes on to say that people cannot love
others if they cannot love and accept themselves 
first. Accordingly, self awareness is the first
step to accomplish change in our lives. Very often,
accomplishing positive change in life is getting
into something bigger than ourselves.
 
Malouf indicates that meaningful boundaries are
a condition precedent to healthy psychological
functioning. So saying no to abuse is OK. You
should always listen to your intuitive feelings
and forgive people to get the all-important 
emotional release.
 
The author encourages us to observe without evaluating
in order to acquire as many facts as possible to make 
an intelligent decision. Sometimes, it's important to
dream and visualize your desires while acting positively
to work toward meritorious goals and desired outcomes.
Ultimately, we should value our true desires.
 
Silent is an excellent resource on the dynamics of
managing ourselves so that the ego is well under control.
Only then, we are able to love ourselves and others by
extension of our own acceptance and firm psychological grounding.
