SAY WHAT YOU LOVE Unconditionally:
A Guide to Creating Anything You Love
by Mackenzie Jordan
Mackenzie Jordan’s book SAY WHAT YOU LOVE is written in a quick, easy-to read style, and it is sprinkled throughout with humor and real life examples showing how the concept of Say What You Love can be used in your day-to-day life to clear away anxiety and confusion, and to generate more joy, success, and abundance.
Say What You Love, she explains, gives access to pure creation energy, and she invites the reader to tap into this innate power -- the power of love -- to transform one’s life. To Say What You Love unconditionally, without justification, reservation or argument, gives the ability to create what is wanted and to have it manifested.
When there is strife in one’s life, Jordan points out, most people use common problem solving methods. For example, if they don’t like where they live, they focus on the negative aspects of what they don’t like. Rather than doing that, the author suggests concentrating on bringing forth powerful Love energies by creating thoughts such as “What do I want to move toward?”, or, “What do I envision for myself?”
Jordan says, be truthful to yourself when you create what you want because that is what you will get. We have a choice -- to envision, to create what we love to do or to anti-create by focusing on what we do not love. Because the mind is an endless stream of thoughts, at any given moment we are either creating or anti-creating. Which will it be?
She defines creating as causing something unique to come into being or to evolve from one’s imagination. To create is to arrange or to bring about by intention or by choosing to create possibilities in one’s life.
Examples of anti-creating are focusing on problems, chaos or confusion, instead of focusing on what one loves unconditionally. Also, anti-creating is a focusing on arguments, blame, shame, and a laying of guilt trips on one’s self. Other examples are obsession, worry, control, and the giving of ultimatums.
The author explains, if you have been working long and hard to achieve something, with little or no results, and no fun, you are anti-creating. To anti-create is to use faulty, limited or negative thinking strategies or behavior in an effort to avoid unpleasantness. For example, “I don’t want to hurt your feelings,” focuses on what you don’t want and on the opposite of What You Love. The moment you Say What You Love unconditionally, without justification, reservation or argument, you experience inner peace.
Jordan expands the concept of personal inner peace to embrace the entire world. Global peace begins with one being at a time achieving inner peace, she says. Saying What You Love, which brings inner peace, can, in time, can transform global turmoil into peace, and that is her goal.
Note from Barbara: Here is a January 25, 2004 review I sent to Mackenzie:
I love your book, SAY WHAT YOU LOVE.
I am the founder of a large Internet organization called Global Mediations Network whose dedicated focus is on achieving global peace. Your book gives wonderful examples of how an individual can achieve inner peace, which, as you point out, counts! Multiply hundreds wearing the cloth of inner peace and the tide begins to turn. Global turmoil becomes global peace! Hurray for your book! I LOVE it!
2. ENDORSEMENT of book:
When the student is ready, the teacher appears. I've recognized that truth in my life many times over the years and it has happened once again! Say What You Love has come into my life synchronistically as I was looking for a new paradigm to adopt. For many years I have been practicing the art of "positive thinking" to my best abilities. I really thought I was pretty good at maintaining a positive attitude and being a proactive, high achiever type but I was beginning to feel that I was short changing myself of even greater accomplishments with certain persistent negative thought forms. I started realizing how many times the word "hate" came out of my mouth. Mackenzie's simple message is about love. What could be simpler than Saying What You Love? Well, it's harder than it sounds but nothing could be more important. This simple concept aids in every aspect of life, both personal and global. I am now aware of areas where I had been working very hard at "anti-creating." Thank you for inspiring and encouraging me to tackle and overcome the bad habit of saying and thinking what I hate. I LOVE your piece of the puzzle for manifesting peace and abundance for all humanity. This is an important book to share with your friends. May the millionth human join us soon!
love and light,
Eric Van der Wyk
