Butterflies in the Gutter: The Miracle Awaiting You in Life's Dark Moments is an exploration through poetry and prose of the beautiful possibilities for spiritual freedom that hover over our lives in the heart of difficulty. Through honest self-reflection and gentle contemplation, the author invites the reader to consider challenging times from an angle that suggests darkness is not an enemy to conquer nor are the uncomfortable moments of life something we should try to avoid.
By turning on its head the reason we have dark moments emerge in the first place, S.C Lourie poetically undresses the distortions society has created about the inevitable darker moments of life to convey that darkness, melancholy, despondency and the like emerge within our consciousness as friends, come to reveal something beautiful and timeless about our authentic nature looking for wholesome expression in the world. If we do not ban or stifle these feelings, they become like therapy to the soul and awaken beauties not seen before. We need not be embarrassed or ashamed of the sadder seasons of our lives, or try to escape them as we've been conditioned to. They come as disguised and compassionate friends, emerging to empower us to walk the road less traveled of truly following our our deepest knowing in our souls.
This book is an insightful, beautiful guide of encouragement for anyone passionate and desperate to finally accept, love and honour themselves, so that they may live true to their hearts through authentic self-discovery and emotional freedom. If you're tired of all the strife and conflict, then this is the book for you.
