<P>In this unique book, Sidney Dekker tackles a largely unexplored dilemma. Our scientific age has equipped us ever better to explain why things go wrong. But this increasing sophistication actually makes it harder to explain why we suffer. Accidents and disasters have become technical problems without inherent purpose. When told of a disaster, we easily feel lost in the steely emptiness of technical languages of engineering or medicine. Or, in our drive to pinpoint the source of suffering, we succumb to the hunt for a scapegoat, possibly inflicting even greater suffering on others around us. How can we satisfactorily deal with suffering when the disaster that caused it is no more than the dispassionate sum of utterly mundane, imperfect human decisions and technical failures? Broad in its historical sweep and ambition, <EM>The End of Heaven</EM> is also Dekker's most personal book to date.</P>

When I got word that my mother had died, my life changed forever. I immediately went upstairs to my room and slammed the door shut. I opened up the photo album she gave me before she passed and stared at the pictures of my mom throughout the years. With tears pouring down my hot face, I just gazed at the pictures; images of her as a young woman, images of her older.<br />Thoughts raced through my mind like, “Here she is at 16. She had no clue that she would get cancer several years later and have a horrible death.” And, “Here she is holding me when I was a baby. She had no clue what was in store for her 26 years later.”<br />Suddenly, I screamed and threw the book across the room. “This isn’t fair!” I bellowed. I looked up at the ceiling and screamed at God. “What kind of a sick joke is this, man?” I demanded. “She didn’t do anything to anyone, and you took her from me!” I got no response from God, of course.<br />I threw shoes. I threw books. I threw whatever was in arm’s reach until I felt better. After throwing several things, I took a deep breath and paused. I then thought about my mother being taken from me, and the feeling of rage grew and grew yet again. I continued to throw whatever was in reach of me, screaming at the unfairness. By the time I was finished, it looked like a tornado had hit my room. I stared at the mess. I knew that this would be something I would never get over.<br />

How am I ever going to get through this? <br /><br />How can I move on when I feel stuck?<br /><br />How could I possibly thrive when the person I miss the most isn’t here anymore? <br /><br />This personal and revealing book will show you how to answer these questions, and more, to empower you to find the beauty in life as you build your resilience in the face of your loss. <br /><br />When death takes our loved one’s life, we step onto one of three paths:<br />The first – we stumble through our grief and with time and just enough support, we survive. The second – we remain stuck in the chasm of grief, having a very difficult time believing that we will ever feel better, smile, or be happy again. For some, the grief can last the rest of their life.<br /><br />Despite having access to counselors, support groups, friends and family, we tend to manage gravity of the grief alone and often see no path forward. We don’t know how leverage our own strengths to find a pathway back to better days and to the weightlessness of resilience. But why do we have to just survive and let death take our life too? Why not thrive and find out our true purpose for living our lives? <br /><br />The third – we walk the path of empowerment that guides us through our grief, where we live a life of gratitude for what is, and thrive intentionally with resilience. <br /><br />“A Sherpa Named Zoi” empowers you to thrive, to raise your frequency to thrive and see the beauty in life again. <br /><br />This book guides you on:<br />•How to answer the questions we all ask after the death of a loved one – one at a time.<br />•How to frame your mindset to stop negative self-narratives and make way for forgiveness and gratitude.<br />•How to function with purpose on a level that is equal to or better than before your loss.<br />•How to form the core values that bring energy and direction to your life.<br />•How to surpass existing in survival mode and live with purpose and intent.<br /> <br /><br />Follow the advice in this book and the weightlessness of resilience will be revealed. You will begin to thrive with intention in the honor of the person that you miss the most. <br /><br />What’s stopping you from unlocking the resilience you have inside of you already today?<br /><br />Scroll to the top and click the “buy now” button
