The Little Me and THE GREAT ME

BOOK: The Little Me and THE GREAT ME, by Lou Austin

This little yellow book really started me on my spiritual journey. My brother’s godfather, D. Parke Gibson, gave it to my mom to give to me. I’m forever grateful to both of them for being so enlightened.

The book explains that there are two wills in every person: one – the will of the human self (the Little Me), the other – the will of the divine self (THE GREAT ME). Between these two forces there is a continuous running battle. The good news is that we have the freedom to choose between the two.

In a very approachable manner, the book also teaches the power of breath. It explains that we can exhale the Little Me and inhale THE GREAT ME. How amazing is that! I certainly recommend this book to anyone from 3 to 103. It teaches some very fundamental principles in an easy-to-understand way. The illustrations are also quite fun. I gave my original book to my nephew, Daniel – but then had to buy another one for myself!
