I really liked this chapter. I too grew up in a church that said - "Ours is the one true church" - then I went to another one who claimed that also.
I liked this line - by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - "there are times when silence is a lie".
Why, because there are times I keep silent and it may seem that I agree - but my silence is a lie.
Happened the other day at work. I had had my say the night before, and my boss "had" to try and discuss it again - the next day on the phone - and all I said - was "ummhumm", " ummhumm".
I was not agreeing - but my silence made it seem like I may have been. So my silence was a lie.
Another part I liked is - page 39 - I needed this book a few times over the past Years - with my daughter. I needed to ask myself - Can I be sure my painful story is true? - I was that woman at the bottom of the page - I needed to say "Here is what was true: woman sitting in chair waiting for her beloved daughter."
One more part of the chapter that I hit home with me. " "Victor Frankl - a survivor of the Nazi death camps, said: "there are two ways to go to the gas chamber: free or not free." "
So, Let's take the best parts of this book and grow.
I'd like to change what Victor said - Just a bit - THERE are two ways to read The Joy Diet - Free or Not Free. I think THAT WE will be free-er by the end of this book.
