New book announcement: The Power of Acceptance

The Power of Acceptance: A Spirtuality Memoir by Mollie Player

Pleased to announce that my latest book, The Power of Acceptance: One Year of Mindfulness and Meditation, is now available at Amazon.com. This is a follow-up to You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends.

From the back cover:

For a day, a week, even a month at a time, she had the feeling continuously. She had it while she read, while she drove, while she ate, and while she played with her child. Which is why each time the feeling left, it was a great disappointment.

It was the feeling of connection with the Divine, and Mollie Player wanted to hold on to it forever. But how?

What was the key to continuous meditation?

Following You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends, The Power of Acceptance is her answer to that question. In this year-long journal she shares her attempt to do a sitting meditation each day, then remain in the state of meditation as much as possible after that.
Featuring interviews on meditation from long-time practitioners, The Power of Acceptance isn’t a meditation prescription, but rather a personal story of one woman’s spiritual struggles . . . and breakthroughs.

For a limited time, The Power of Acceptance and You’re Getting Closer are just 99 cents.

Thanks to my support system for helping me fill up the corners left in my day with writing time. Much love.

Here’s your chance to tell somebody what you *really* think

gift set

As I’ve no doubt mentioned before, my life is blessed with many wonderful people. A few of those people: those who give me feedback on my writing.

And yet, there is something in this area I still lack.

See, I have fans–super awesome fans who read, like, everything I write. And I have a few naysayers as well. But lately I’ve been wondering: What about all the people in-between? Might they have something even more valuable to share with me on the topic of my books–namely, really, really helpful commentary and critique?

And I’m guessing the answer to that question is yes.

And so, as I’ve done a few times on my blog before (thanks again to those who participated!), this week I’m extending an offer to you, my blog readers: If you buy any of my books, then send me a quick email telling me what you *really* thought of it and why, I’ll refund your purchase price (or send you a different ebook or printed book of your choice) with almost as much gusto as I use during the writing process itself. If you’re a writer and would prefer an in-kind critique, we can arrange that, too.

And that’s not all! I’ll also send you a whole bouquet of loving happy vibes–for free! (Can’t you just feel that gusto?)

Now, don’t worry: If you love the book you choose and have no real criticism to share, I’m actually find with hearing the good stuff, too. (You can also post a review on Amazon with the same, though note that I’m not basing your refund on that.) But a few “wasn’t really into it for this reason” comments would be super, super helpful as well.

Just email me at mollie@mollieplayer.com with the review (anonymous comments are totally fine).

 

Free law of attraction ebook: “Happiness is the Truth”

cover - happiness is the truth

Free ebook announcement!

From time to time, I announce an ebook giveaway on this site. These are all New Thought books that the authors have agreed to be made available for free, at least for a period of time. Just email me at mollie@mollieplayer.com to request your PDF copy.

Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto is a basic primer on New Thought spirituality; however, it is anything but a rule book. The chapters, each of which explains one tenet of this philosophy, include: “Spirituality is good,” “Life is a game,” “There are no rules,” “Absolutes are fine. Certainty is not,” “People are holy,” “We have power,” and, finally, “Happiness is the truth.”

Here is an excerpt:

“Suffice it to say that I believe in love, and I believe in eternity, and I believe in spirits and in the big mystery that is what we call God. And I believe that in the end, it is not prayer that makes us holy, or good deeds, or any particular philosophy. I believe that the purpose of life and the way to be holy is this:

“You do what makes you happy.”

Book announcement, part two: “The Naked House”

cover - the naked house - small

Reminder to anyone who missed it that The Naked House: Five Principles for a More Peaceful Home is now available on Amazon.com here.

And one more excerpt for you:

“It’s a strange fact but a fact nonetheless: most people greatly underestimate the effect of their environment on their mood and enjoyment of life.

“I don’t know why this is. Shouldn’t we have figured it out by now? We pay three times the normal price of wine, just so we can drink it on an uncomfortable stool in a sexy, cool bar. We do the same with coffee at Starbucks. And we spend a whole load of cash to sit by a pool in Mexico, rather than the one at the Y.

“We think we have other reasons for doing these things, reasons that are much more logical and detached. The bar is convenient. Starbucks has free Wi-Fi. And in Mexico you can scuba dive or ride a horse.

“But home is convenient. Home has the internet, and there are bodies of water and horses here, too. We don’t go for any of that; we go because we want to get away.
Our homes can’t give us that getaway experience, of course, but they can offer something even better: an ongoing sense of well-being in our everyday life.

“Allow me to say again what I said in chapter one: Your home is like a person—and, like a person, it has a soul.”

If you are a fellow home organization hobbyist, check it out. It has a ton of ideas for greatly simplifying your life.

Life is what you think about, reprised

book - you're getting closer - cover - front - smalljpg

Last year I had the pleasure of holding a book signing for my latest book, You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends. Here, a reblog for you: the piece I wrote promoting the event–and my perspective on the goal of my writing as I see it right now.

Mollie Player is just a regular person. And yet, she is trying—sometimes very, very hard—to be different. And the way Mollie wants to be different is this: she wants to stay the same.

She just wants to be more of herself.

She wants to learn how to be aware of the Divine inside her at all times. She wants to communicate with God.

In other words: she wants to get enlightened.

Lofty goal? Maybe. Is she there yet? Probably not.

But she is, just maybe, on her way.

Often when people describe their lives these are the things they talk about:

  • What they did or do;
  • What they had or have;
  • Who they knew or know.

If you ask Mollie, though, she’d tell you that those things aren’t what life is at all.

Life, she says, is what goes on inside your mind.

It’s what you care about. It’s what you dream about.

It’s what you think about every day.

And so, even though she is just a regular person, Mollie decided to write about some of the thoughts that have made up her real life so far—and with which other regular people may be able to relate.

In Sometimes Very: How I Overcame Depression Without Experts or Medicine, she discusses her battle with chronic dysthemia.

In Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto, she tells what she thinks spirituality should be all about.

And, in You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends, she journals about her attempt to pray without ceasing for an entire year.

Mollie hopes that you like them, but more than that: she hopes they’ll make you different—even if that just means being more of yourself.

Apparently, the Nook is somewhat popular

book - you're getting closer - cover - front - smalljpg

So, the word on the street is that not all of my readers have Amazon’s Kindle; other e-readers are somewhat popular, too. And so it is for these unique path finders that I have recently gone to the trouble to publish my most recent book, You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends, on the Kobo e-reader as well as on the Nook. (I was going to do the iPad/iPhone, too, but Apple and Linux, my operating system, don’t get along so well.)

Another reason to download? Its free.

 

How I got rid of most of my depression in just twenty short years

Sometimes, you just gotta change your mind. That’s part of what life is for, after all.

Changing.

And so, this month I did just that. I retitled my first full-length book, Sometimes Very: How I Overcame Depression Without Experts or Medicine, to the much more appropriate title of Sometimes Very: How I Got Rid of Most of My Depression In Just Twenty Short Years.

Its not only more accurate regarding the theme of the book–its a bit cuter as well.

Reminder: Today’s the last day to get Happiness for free

cover - happiness is the truth

Hello dear readers,

Here’s your friendly reminder post that today is the last day you can download one of my ebooks, Happiness Is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto, for free.

Happiness Is the Truth is a chatty, gutsy, genuine take on spirituality-without-category that we sometimes like to call New Thought, New Age or Metaphysical Belief.

Here’s the back cover copy:

“Suffice it to say that I believe in love, and I believe in eternity, and I believe in spirits and in the big mystery that is what we call God. And I believe that in the end, it is not prayer that makes us holy, or good deeds, or believing a particular thing. I believe that the purpose of life and the way to be holy is this:

“You do what makes you happy.”

Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto is a passionate plea for a new kind of spirituality that does not limit the freedom and sovereignty of the individual. The chapters, each of which explains one tenet of this philosophy, include “Spirituality is good,” “Life is a game,” “There are no rules,” “Absolutes are fine. Certainty is not,” “People are holy,” “We have power,” and, finally, “Happiness is the truth.”

It is available in printed or Kindle ebook form on Amazon.com.

Please read and please do enjoy … And of course feel free to forward this post to your more woo-woo type friends (or the other kind if you’re just that awesome).

Blessings,

Mollie

I think Oprah would approve

cover - happiness is the truth

Hello dear readers,

Lately, I’ve been giving some thought to book marketing (a task that normally is not high on my to-do list), and I thought I’d do something a little different. And then I thought about it some more, and decided that I’d stick to what works instead: giving away a free ebook! After all, giving away free books is one of *my* favorite things. (I think Oprah would approve. And I think she’d like the book itself, too, though let’s not get carried away.)

While this is always a fun promo to do, I take special pleasure in giving away this particular book (free on Amazon today through Thursday). Titled Happiness Is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto, it’s a chatty, gutsy, genuine take on spirituality-without-category that we sometimes like to call New Thought, New Age or Metaphysical Belief.

Here’s the back cover copy:

“Mollie Player is one of those people that basically lives for her spirituality–even if she isn’t always perfect at it. In Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto, she shares her very personal seven-part spiritual mission statement–in the chatty style of a very good friend. Written in careful yet approachable prose, the chapters include “Spirituality is good,” “Life is a game,” “There are no rules,” “Absolutes are fine. Certainty is not,” “People are holy,” “We have power,” and, finally, “Happiness is the truth.”
