A promise is a promise

When i started reading this book last night I had no clue what it was about, it must have been a free download on my iTunes. I was tossing and turning so i open this book and said to myself "what gives let me just read 10 pages so i can fall asleep"
This book is SO good I read 51 pages, i could not put it down. The book tells the story of Kaye a mother who took care of her Daughter Edwarda, who was in Coma for 30+ years. This is based on a true story. Now you know how i feel about Ash being sick and how i feel about my mom so this book hit me hard. Check it out!! I'm such a believer that everything that in my life is God's work that i know that after the emotional call our Team had last night and the answer I got on my question GOD wanted me to read this.

Introduction by Dr. Wayne Dyer:

I have read many definitions of love. My favorite by far is quite simple: "…Love is the art of giving. It asks nothing in return." Using this as my working definition, you are about to read an authentic love story.

This is not a novel with characters who fall in love in a romantic fashion. This is not a story with a plot that winds its way through literary channels to a clever conclusion. What you hold in your hand is a book about unconditional love. Each page represents a real-life, day-to-day commitment to giving and serving in the highest sense of love that I can imagine.

I have made no effort to follow any rules of literary presentation. I did not resort to any "filler" material to lengthen the manuscript or to engage the reader in extraneous details of this remarkable story.

What I have done is to relate, as directly and simply as possible, the story of a level of giving to another human being that is unknown to most of us. It is my impression that when the art of giving becomes absolutely unconditional, as it is with Kaye O'Bara, we will come to know the meaning of this quotation from A Course In Miracles: "If you knew who walks beside you on the way that you have chosen, fear would be impossible."

I place the emphasis on the word knew. To know is to have the direct experience and to have banished all doubt. Kaye knows that she is not alone. She knows that her daughter is also participating in the way that she has chosen. This knowing has permitted Kaye to serve unconditionally for over a quarter of a century, and it has made visible the divine intervention of the Holy Family.

But even more than this is the fact that all of us who read of Kaye's devotion and unflappable service are enriched immeasurable.

In the context of love being the art of giving and asking nothing in return, we are all assured that this kind of love is not just for fiction writers or reserved for those who have been deified. This kind of love is here and now. It is taking place among us, while the rest of us go about the business of our daily lives.

The story of Kaye and Edwarda O'Bara is indeed a love story that transcends our own experiences of love. It reminds us to look within and see where we can give unconditionally.

I have written this book to fulfill my own commitment to giving unconditionally in my own life. Furthermore, it is my intention to introduce you to these divine people through the pages of this book, while simultaneously providing you with some insights on what you can learn from becoming aware of this story. And finally, it is my intention to remove the onus of debt that has choked at the life force of the O'Baras for the past quarter of a century, by having the royalties go directly to Kaye and Edwarda.

As you read this short book, be aware of the power of your prayers, as well as your compassion in helping out these sacred souls. As you extend this compassion toward the O'Baras, remember to do the same for everyone on our planet as well. This, to me, is the lesson of Edwarda's long silence- to teach all of us to extend love unconditionally in every corner of our world, and to do it without asking anything for ourselves in return. Perhaps as the world takes on this challenge, Edwarda's role as a victim soul will become complete. I pray it is so.

In love and light,
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
