Love Is Letting Go of Fear Book Review
by Steve M Nash
Gerald G. Jampolsky's Love Is Letting Go of Fear by is probably the best self help book I've ever read. It's a truly transformational read as it gets you to take a long, close look at yourself, and how you really 'do' life. I can't recommend this book enough...

of Love is Letting go of Fear
I've just this week (Jun, 2009) finished this utterly inspiring book by Gerald G. Jampolsky. It's only a small book on the subject of fear
but it nevertheless packs a punch, as it shows you how can literally let go of fear via the daily 'love' lessons.
In some ways, Love is Letting Go of Fear is a bit of lightweight version of Guy Finley's book called The Secret of Letting Go.
But that is fine.
I recommend that you read both of these books. For they talk about the same truth: Love is the opposite of fear
, and fear conspires to make victims of us all.
I'm not going to explain much more about Gerald's fantastic self help book, as it's so short you might as well just read it (as read my review of it). I will share with you a few of the simple lessons, however, and leave you with the final words of Gerald's book.
Okay, here are some example lessons:
Lesson 1: All That I Give I Give to Myself
Lesson 2: Forgiveness is the Key to Happiness
Lesson 3: I am Never Upset for the Reason I Think
And the final words of Love is Letting Go of Fear:
"Teach only love for that is what you are"
Oh, I will say this, though: One thing I really admire about Gerald G. Jampolsky, is that Gerald uses personal examples of his own fear
, and how it still gets the better of him from time to time. And I find this honesty refreshing and reassuring.
His examples show me that he has not mastered fear - it is everywhere after all - and that he also needs to constantly remind himself of his own tendencies towards fearfulness.
Dr Jampolsky simply possesses a deeper understanding of how fear can be defeated via love, humility and real forgiveness. Yes, this best-selling book comes highly recommended
(by me)! :-)
