“The Mirror Theory posits that Jesus had siblings and talks about their relationship with him vis a vis personal growth. As the story unfolds, a theory emerges which says that everyone we encounter is an emotional mirror of the love, or the lack of love, we express.”
This episode discusses:
Depression, Suicide, and our decision to be here and go through these experiences…
How to deal with our own and other people’s troubles in an empowering way for ourselves and them…
When faced with other people’s problems, we can empower them by letting them live their own lives…
What we can do when someone tells us they want to commit suicide…
“It is the soul of a book that matters and The Mirror Theory has one that even I can relate to.” Norman Lear
“The Mirror Theory is a delight to read–not only for the story itself, but for the insight, wisdom, and hope the message brings to all of us.” Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God
“A provocative book that forces the reader to question the nature of truth, love, and the beauty within each soul.” Michael Nouri, actor
“There is more than mere reflection in The Mirror Theory. Betsy Otter Thompson’s stories are like a jubilant game of ‘hide and seek’ where we learn that seeking and recognizing self through our relationships with others is the object of the game of life. You’ll be less likely to play ‘hide and blame’ and more inspired to play ‘seek and gain’ in order to expand consciousness.” Marina Craven Kaiser
“I enjoyed every page and couldn’t put it down.” Joy Poulter
“All I can say is WOW. I just finished reading The Mirror Theory, and am deeply impressed by its wisdom, its immediacy, and its originality. You have succeeded in doing what all of us writers strive to do: to take a fundamental truth, something that goes to the heart of being fully alive and fully human, and to give that truth a whole new face. In the process, you also give it a whole new meaning that people can share. And I hope that, in this case, your book will reach many, many people.
“This book has so much depth–and so much to say about being personally responsible, creating one’s life, and knowing the love of God. Thank you for writing it, and sharing it with me.” T. A. Barron, author
“There is so much good information in The Mirror Theory, as well as a wonderful message! It’s very interesting to ponder the questions at the end of each chapter. I can really see where I need to grow in my life and also appreciate the areas where I have grown.” Holly Foster Wells
“You did a very good job of laying out a controlled way for people to find a path to a happier life.” Nonnie Barnes
