Book Review: 'The 30-Minute Soulmate' by Greg Kuhn
Kentucky author Greg Kuhn is a professional educator and a futurist, specializing in framing new paradigms for 21st Century living. Since 1995 Greg has written for his father, Dr. Clifford Kuhn, M.D. about health, wellness, and personal growth. Greg has also published the successful series on ‘Why Quantum Physicists’ quantum physics - ‘Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail’, ‘Why Quantum Physicists Don't Get Fat’, ‘Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Suffer’, ‘Why Quantum Physicists Create More Abundance’, - - this later book leading into the present book THE 30 MINUTE SOULMATE as is easily appreciated as readers of his other successful books will discover.
In his thoughtful introduction Greg shares, ‘It doesn’t matter if you’re not in a relationship right now. Everything in this book applies to singles, too, because the focus is on reconciling yourself, not on a partnership. Whether single or in a relationship, just engage yourself. This is a journey of self-reconciliation, whether done while in a relationship or with a desire for one. I’m far from completely reconciled. I still shut myself off from intimacy and connection because I'm human and have more to learn. I know how to solve my relationship pain, but I don’t know how to prevent it from ever happening again. But what kind of adventure would life be if we lived in Nirvana? The solutions to your pain will be uniquely yours. You may be amazed at how often they’ve been hiding in plain sight. I can’t tell you what your solutions are, but I can tell you how you can find them. With a little courage, honesty, and willingness,you have everything you need. You don’t necessarily need to solve your pain to have a good relationship, nor is doing so required for being happy. But I didn’t experience the intimacy and connection I’d been missing until I solved it. Today I can experience what had been missing from every relationship, and you can too.’
Greg proceeds with his 4 simple ideas – ‘Only you can have your experiences’, 'You give your experiences meaning’, Meanings form perspectives’, and ‘Perspectives influence relationships.’ He defines his ‘Un-Exercise’ concept, breathing, and the other aspects of his approach – ‘Keeping a soulmate by your side isn’t the only thing that can happen if you’re healing your wounds. You can also become a soulmate yourself. You can stay by his side and learn to jab his wounds less. You can become his soulmate by healing your own wounds. And you may find being a soulmate can be a more fulfilling experience than having one.’ Rich in fresh ideas, well presented, Greg Kuhn proves again that he is a fellow traveler committed to helping us understand our motivations, our physicality and our ability to meld it all into a happier life.
