A Radical Incarnation: Global 13 Publishing Colin C. Tipping


16th March 2013 Literature & Fiction 26 Comments

An amusing, tongue-cheek story about a soul being prepared for his life mission which is to become the President of the U.S., achieve enlightenment, heal America and awaken Humanity to itself. The inference is that GWB could be him. At the same time it has a very serious message about how we can create world peace if we use the technology of Radical Forgiveness to raise the overall vibration of the people and create a world of forgiveness by 2012.

Colin Tipping is an award-winning author, international speaker, workshop leader and the recognized authority on Radical Forgiveness. Educated at London University, he is the founder/director of the Institute for Radical Forgiveness Therapy and Coaching, Inc., and is co-founder with his wife JoAnn, of Together-We-Heal, Inc., a non profit corporation dedicated to spreading the message that Radical Forgiveness is the ‘bridge to healing and to world peace.’

    As with all great books, it is not so much what is written, but where it leads you. And this book leads the reader(if they are ready)on the first steps of a wonderful journey where one can lovingly let go of what is holding us back from being who we really are.In that discovery we can find out the answers to those elusive questions,”Who am I?” “What am I here for?” Believe me this journey can be a little confronting in the beginning and if one is not ready to let go of one’s garbage I can see where some people may react negatively. I was so impressed with the results in my life, I hired the author to come up to our company and do the two day workshop with all our staff. It was the best thing we could have done. The changes in over 50 people have been genuine and positively impacted our business.Personally I would recommend the workshop, the book is great but I feel the opportunity for spiritual growth is limited in reading a book.

    A wonderful “radical forgiveness” fable. Much like a “little soul in the sun” book in novel form.

    This book goes beyond the idea of letting go of resentments, and recommends that you see challenging situations and people as actual blessings! It suggests that these events and people are in your life for the sole purpose of helping you heal old wounds, and grow in your ability to experience unconditional love.

    This book itself is a blessing, and I highly recommend it — especially if you are blaming someone else for your unhappiness.

    Radical Forgiveness carries some important messages, but at least one confusing one. The important lesson is – and I believe this is true – we accept and sometimes create our own pain. We learn from past generations, or from messages we hear frequently, that we are guilty of ________; fill in the blank. We are guilty because we are white, we are not good enough, we are to blame for what happens to us. We feel bad because we repress anger or deny the truths that we should see clearly. It’s all our fault

    Author Colin Tipping tell us to take responsibility for our lives and what happens to us and to give forgiveness to those whom we perceive as harming us. He goes on to say that we must also take responsibility for the harm we have caused others. I was concerned that at first that Radical Forgiveness seemed to heap guilt, fear and doubt on the very people trying to rid themselves of these feelings. I will forgive others by taking on all the guilt and responsibility? This didn’t sound therapeutic to me.

    After reading more chapters, however, I read the exercises and began to see the reasoning behind the method of forgiving. If we carry around anger and hate, it only hurts us. If we let go of those repressed negative feelings, we free ourselves to forgiveness.

    Working through the book Radical Forgiveness is not something done quickly, and it is not an instant answer. It involves studying and work, but don’t most things that are worthwhile? My advice would be to give the book a chance. Study it carefully and do the exercises. Give it time.

    Obtaining Radical Forgiveness is a journey, but well worth the travel it takes.

    I read _Radical Forgiveness_ after one particularly painful argument with a boyfriend that I couldn’t separate from. We’d tried to break up dozens of times before, but we still could neither change our patterns of behavior with each other nor break it off entirely.

    Anyhow, the book was totally transformative–it gave me the ability to shift and widen my perspective enough to change the dynamic we were trapped in with each other. My seeing him differently, my “radically forgiving” him by understanding that I wasn’t a victim, gave him the space to see me differently as well. Since then we’ve both been able to move on but have been very close friends.

    I’ve re-read the book after heavy disagreements with other friends or lovers and each time it’s been very helpful. Actually, just reading the first chapter is sometimes enough for me, and that you can read for free if you find the author’s website. It’s very easy and quick reading, and presents ideas very simply and coherently that in other therapeutic formats might take months or years to learn.

    Highly, highly recommended, particularly if you are feeling estranged from someone you love.

    I read the reviews and bought the book. I agree with some of the reviewers that this book does have a lot of New Age principles in it, however in saying that, it’s also very Christian centered, which is not bad, but not what I was looking for. I was hoping to find a book less focused on religion and more directed to finding forgiveness.

    It wasn’t a bad book, but not what I was expecting.

    This book gives each of us a whole new way of seeing life. Using Radical Forgiveness, we can begin to let go of the barriers we have all created. Using this wisdom and insight, we stop blaming others for our situations. As a result, things actually change around us. For me, this masterpiece has been transformational. I hope everyone will be able to experience this. Thank-you very much.

    Mr. Tipping has done an excellent job of presenting the Truth about ourselves, others, and God. Unfortunately those who are insecure about themselves may judge this book as a reader from Boston Mass. has done in an effort to make themselves ‘better’. This is the way of Ego. In his book Mr Tipping talks about the Ego and why it causes so much of the unhappiness in our lives. The same reader from Boston Mass. judges this book to be written in poor grammer. This book is not about english grammer. This book is about a more universal grammer; Love. Truth is universal. Regardless of who first writes the Truth, it is still Truth. This book teaches that God gives us free will to attract to ourselves the situations and people best suited to grow from. We ourselves decide what our lives will be. Mr Tipping’s book explains this, and presents a life style for realizing this gift, and properly benefiting from it. If you want to continue your life with the inevitable suffering which society teaches us to accept and propagate, than Radical Forgiveness is not for you. But if you want to learn how to use God’s gift and bring peace to yourself and the world, Read this book. The Truth here can change your life. It can change to world. The choice is yours. God will not interfere; It is His gift He has given to you. Reading this book begins the choice to be happy. The Lord’s prayer asks God to forgive us our trespasses as we forgive our trespassers. This means that as we forgive ourselves and others, we receive God’s forgiveness for doing so. But do you really know how to do this? Read this book and you will know. And remember: you are not alone, We are All One. Now is the time!

    There is only one word I can use to describe how I feel after reading this book, and that is free… release yourself from blaming others, and embrace the lessons your soul is setting out for you… fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Perhaps part of the fault is mine. When I purchased this book, I expected something from a Christian, rather than New Age, perspective. Still, the perspective is an interesting one. Basically, all of the crappy situations we go through are our souls working together with the souls of the other people involved to help teach us a lesson or resolve something, “to learn and grow”.

    If you want to learn more about the five steps, just google Radical Forgiveness Worksheet. The author has a lot of free tools on his website–and that will let you see the process.

    I think that if one were to employ this, one would truly view the world in a different light–which would be beneficial. I’m just not so sure that I believe that it’s all a part of our souls conspiring with other souls to help us grow–but it’s a nice idea.

    The book itself, IMHO, was too long. But still, I think if you read the opening chapters and skip around a bit–you’ll get what you need.

    Mirroring others who have similar chemistry to mine has given me insights into difficult relationships. Recognizing my own misconduct in these relationships because of similarities in our reactions has freed me from misinterpreting motivations. I have been given a key to understanding.
    I do not agree totally with the author’s life-style, a bit New Age, but some of his principals are well thought out and a true discovery.

    Although there is a lot of material here that I have already incorporated into my spiritual life, there were three key things that helped me tremendously. 1. You can’t “force” yourself to forgive…it just doesn’t work…and it won’t work until you’re ready — and that’s OK. 2. It’s OK to be angry — just don’t let it become addictive; and it’s ok to express anger — as long as it is done in a cleansing, healing manner; and 3. Freeing that “wounded” part of yourself that has been kept deep inside you for a long time. It’s really up to you. It’s your choice to forgive yourself for giving away your personal power…or it’s your choice to remain in a state of pain and sorrow. Make the choice to forgive yourself — you will find out just how free and powerful you become!

    This book opened my mind to a new way of thinking. I have always considered myself as one who seeks “growth” opportunites. However, as a result of my need to grow and progress I have often been overly sensitve to others who choose to stay “stuck”, consequently propelling myself into Victimland to such people. I really saw myself in this book. The patterns in my life came crashing to the surface. There are a lot of “spiritual” or “new age” ideas in the book which don’t necessarily go along with my belief system which is Christian based. (I should note that the author is a Christian as well according to what he writes.) However, each time I found myself questioning the ideas in the book such as “vibration”, I simply asked myself if what the author was saying was possible. Each time the answer was yes, and I realized that I may not know everything. I just finished reading the book, so it remains to be seen how it will impact my life. Although, I have applied the concepts to a rather hostile work environment already and literally within minutes peoples attitudes toward me changed; or maybe it was my attitudes that changed hmmm. At any rate I highly recommend the book. If you find yourself dismissing the concepts just take a deep breath and consider it for a moment. I look forward to future results. If they are astounding I will send an update.

    This book takes all the sting out of forgiviness. The tools presented support positive and quick changes in life and events. Instead of feeling victimized by forgiving someone, these tools show how forgiveness is the highest form of love, strength and power. If patterns are repeating in your life, or you can’t let go of an event or experience, this book could hold the key.

    I am an unabashedly huge fan of Mr. Tipping’s work. All of his books and tools are the real deal. They simply work – and work simply. I’ve literally devoured many hundreds of self-help books, CD’s, DVD’s and workshops. They all pale in comparison to the efficacy, utility and ease of Mr. Tipping’s materials. No, I’m not being paid for this. :)

    As a Unity minister who has been on the “path” for years, I didn’t expect to find much new or valuable in this book. But I certainly did. Ideas came “alive” that formerly had been interesting concepts, but not REAL and practical.

    Since everything is actually happening “now”, conscious actions chosen today can heal both Present problems and patterns created by events in the “Past”. Traumatic events have powerful emotions attached. These emotions form patterns that create similar events and feelings over and over again in your life. Unfortunately, many of these patterns were formed when you were a child, so they’re usually wrong and downright dangerous. Yet they repeat the same situations wearing new costues. They distort our present.

    Normally we like to blame others for all our problems. We dearly love to tell everyone how we have been victimized. “He done me wrong!” is a world class theme.

    However,If you can recognize a new possibility, a startlingly different way to view things, a way to see events from another dimension, …or even if you are only WILLING to TRY a new approach – you can abolish your “victim role”forever. You can recast yourself as a “Winner”in life.

    When you use the simple technique of Radical Forgiveness, you release enormous quantities of energy that were trapped in maintaining your original negative patterns. This liberated energy then surges through your life, flowing into new positive patterns that create success and love.

    Parents can use Redical Forgiveness as a tool to free their children from traumas that otherwise would ruin their lives. Lovers can REALLY forgive each other and love even more. People who have made horrendous mistakes in their lives can see how these can be “redeemed” and seen as gifts.

    This book is one of the clearest explanations of Life that I have eve read. It is a blessing. KNOW the Truth, and you,re freed!”

    This book brought about an amazing outpouring of emotions, memory and tears just in reading the first part of the book. The author then goes into quite some detail about assumptions behind the theory. This part was okay but slow going – the end is again actionable. Stick with it and you can have an amazing experience I am sure of it.

    I can see this book (piece of work) has saved many lives, saved many from life threatening illnesses, healed broken relationships.

    Colin says, Forgivness is a transformational “shift” in perception. This shift enables the person to truly forgive. Yes, forgiveness without harbouring ill feelings is completely possible by us ordinary mortals . Colin shows us the way.

    My suggestion is – “Read this book!”

    It is not very easy to apply this Radical Forgiveness in real life, but I found it could be helpful to solve some issues, or direct the way of thinking about many things happened everyday. Not bad experience with this book and its concept.

    Jill’s story resonated with me in a very personal way. I was able to understand some things that were happening in my life in a way that I would have never “gotten” with out reading this book. I bought two extra ones. One to give to a friend and one to loan to anyone that is interested.

    I found it very difficult to concentrate on the core message of the book because of the distracting philosophies presented.

    First I believe that Colin has some very great ideas about forgiving. I can understand and accept the message about anger, hate and other feelings we hang on to cause much of our physical and emotional problems and lead to illness.

    There are some very powerful lessons about how we play the victim role, how we want to be right, how we need to be validated. And our need to be right often creates or increases the problems in our lives. We often attract those who are a mirror of what we don’t like about ourselves.

    And even though he says Radical Forgiveness works whether you believe his assumptions or not, I still have some trouble getting past his assumptions. He is very honest and straightforward in his beliefs. He shares his assumptions but does not offer any proof on them in this book.

    One of his assumptions is that the soul lives before and after the body. That our soul chooses to be born and chooses who the parents will be. Because of our past lives, we come into this life with certain problems and that fate brings people into our lives to help us solve the problem. He further believes that the soul forgets everything about past lives at a conscious level but retains knowledge at the subconscious level.

    I do believe that a lot of what is taught in this book can bring about healing of the body and soul. However unless you are willing to overlook those things that you do not agree with or can totally embrace his philosophy and assumptions, you will probably be too distracted to see the value of the lessons. Even if you see and agree with the good points, some people will find the assumptions so distracting that they will only focus on what they disagree with.

    If you cannot approach this book with a totally open mind, then do not even begin it. On the other hand, if you are comfortable with the core assumptions, you will probably find lots of value in the book.

    If you can get past the philosophies, he gives you a worksheet for applying Radical Forgiveness to your own life.

    If you are ready, the book will completely change how you look at the world & at circumstances in your life. Suddenly the worst situations become opportunities to identify a need for healing in one’s own life, & the means are provided to enable the healing (e.g. worksheets… or better yet, a workshop!). Time to move past retaliation on one end of the scale, or self-righteous ‘traditional’ forgiveness on the other end… this book helps us to leave “Victimland” & heal the unconscious issues in ourselves that give rise to negative, repeating, frustrating patterns. And at the highest level, the concepts help reinstate one’s basic faith in the divine plan of the universe, & see that all things really can work together for good. But truly, reading the book at an intellectual level is only a start. True change comes with applying the principles/methodologies. And they are NOT hard at all. And yes, the power of thought IS VERY POWERFUL. I have recently attended a workshop let by the author & his wife, & it took this process to new levels in my life.. I would highly recommend it !
