Before Martha started this book, she felt that her writing was self-therapeutic for her struggles. After she wrote about her experiences in college and all of the lessons that she learned, she wanted to share them with others who were facing similar hardships. This book is a collection of Martha’s experiences and observations from childhood until her first year after college graduation. It contains life lessons and personal opinions on controversial topics, such as relationships, sex, religion, pop culture, and human values. The pieces are not in chronological order. They vary according to Martha’s mentality when she wrote them. The biggest message that she wants her readers to get out of this book is that life can be really hard, but the challenges ultimately lead to strength, humility, and a greater appreciation for every blessing.

The Art of Redemption

For decades, modern seekers have experimented and studied with many diverse teachers and religions, but Stuart Wilde says in that toward the end of a long spiritual journey we all seek the same thing: redemption. None of us is perfect, and yet through embracing that imperfection and reconciling it, we become a complete being—encompassing both the light and the dark. As Stuart says: "Many mystics, holy people, and even the Hopi Indians have predicted a new age of enlightenment, and they are not wrong in my view. It has arrived, and with it has come a whole host of fascinating phenomena never seen before. We are stepping into a magical new era . . . the age of forgiveness." It is when the ivory tower of the ego’s ideas falls that we can then embrace a new humility, allowing us to become ever more genuine, compassionate, and real. In this fascinating book, Stuart makes the point that the process of redemption and forgiveness comes from incorporating the Three Graces in one’s heart: tenderness, generosity, and respect.
