We often ask children what they want to be when they grow up. Some may answer doctor, lawyer, chef, actor, firefighter, or a major league baseball player. We all have a dream of what our future will be like. Dr. William A. Kriva had a dream. He wanted to be an astronaut. For one reason or another we do not all get to live our dreams. Kriva’s eyesight made him ineligible for space flight. After ruling out the areas he was interested in Kriva settled on following in his father’s footsteps as an engineer. He worked hard and quickly moved up the ladder. But he wasn’t happy and his health was poor. Suddenly he heard a small voice say, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?” Kriva returned to school and studied chiropractic medicine. He found happiness contentment.
Kriva continues his book by discussing Innate Intelligence or gut feelings. He explains how our Innate Intelligence is talking to us all the time and we need to learn to listen.
The gist of this book is being happy and content in what you do. One illustration really struck me. A man worked at a job he hated for many years. He lived to retire. Unfortunately he died a few weeks after retirement. He wasted all those years.
Let Your Innate Sing is a small book. It won’t take you long to read it, however you will want to read it time and again. The advice is thoughtful. Learn to listen to your inner voice. Let it guide you. Don’t spend time making ulcers and being miserable. Step out and seek happiness now.
