"Actually the term "Codependence" is an inaccurate and somewhat misleading term for the phenomenon it has come to describe. A more accurate term would be something like outer-dependence, or external dependence. But it is in the evolution of the understanding of what has come to be called "Codependence" that we have discovered and brought together the tools and knowledge which are so vital to the healing process that has begun. The term has exploded into public consciousness in this society in just the last few years because of the Truth contained within its message.
It is very important to understand that the definition of Codependence has changed radically in recent years. Codependence is a term which has evolved and expanded dynamically since it was first coined. The understanding of Codependence presented here is the next step - a small leap forward - in the natural evolution of the term. A kind of a fast-forwarding in the expanding evolutionary path of the term."
***"Codependence is a deadly and fatal disease because of emotional dishonesty and suppression. It breaks our hearts, scrambles our minds, and eventually kills our physical body vehicles because of the Spiritual dis-ease, because of our wounded souls." ***"We are transcendent Spiritual Beings who are part of the ONENESS that is the God-Force. We always have been and always will be. . . We have been trying to do human perfect according to a false belief system in order to get Spiritual. It does not work. It's dysfunctional."

"We have a dysfunctional relationship with life because we were taught to have a dysfunctional perspective of this life business, dysfunctional definitions of who we are and why we are here.
It is kind of like the old joke about three blind men describing an elephant by touch. Each one of them is telling his own Truth, they just have a lousy perspective. Codependence is all about having a lousy relationship with life, with being human, because we have a lousy perspective on life as a human."
"Why isn't this book on the bestseller list? I think it certainly will be someday. You have incorporated many concepts of Truth into one beautiful, soul touching, and integrated piece of genius."
"When I found your book, I found myself."
"Thank you again and again... listening to your audio tapes brought the whole codependence issue into perpective for me. This was the first time in my 42 years that I completely understood why I spent my whole life feeling unhappy."
"You have really captured and expressed the essence of the wounded inner child. You have identified so many things that I have thought about for a very long time. Your book gives me hope. I am beginning to feel excited that there is a life out there. What is the saying ""when you are ready, the teacher will come". Thank you for this."
"Absolutely phenomenal book!"
