Flying Leap by Ralf W. Oliver: Book Takeaways
I recently finished reading a book called, Flying Leap, by Ralf W. Oliver. The book is a novel on perspective, and gives some excellent insight into how we think about our stories, our egos, our relationships, and our needs. If you’re looking for a deeper look at your world, I would recommend it.
Though these may not mean much to you without understanding the full context, here are my key takeaways from Flying Leap:
- Ego, your belief in the story of who you are, pulls you away from being your true self
- You are the thinker, not the thought. Place more emphasis on directing your thoughts to the positive
- There is only fear and love; each will play a large role in your decision making
- Humans always think in the form of duality (if something exists, the opposite must also exist)
- You can create your own story
- Be present
- NEED=No Experience Except Demands. Look to be less demanding
- Live “with” your ego, not “as” your ego
- Time moving forward is a very human concept; time is simply another aspect of the field
- We are all aspects of the field; in that sense, we are all one
- You are infinite and there is nothing to fear
