A gift from the heart for the heart.
Have you ever
wished for the peace and calm of a friend who will really
listen? Who is also willing to take the time to give you the
healing gift of love that dissolves the pain and provides the
acceptance and love you so desperately crave in your moment of
absolute despair? In
"Giving Love Away," Robert Shahidi is that friend. He
is there to understand what you are going through, to explain
the process of healing and to give you a moment in time you
Robert Shahidi, you have to start working with “what is”
instead of the picture of what you imagine your life to be.
Otherwise, you end up living a life of reaction instead of a life of purpose.
Will this reactionary lifestyle make the lives of others around
you more fulfilled or more miserable?
was a young child when his mother was given six
months to live. When she disappeared into the next world, Robert
found a world of people who were not there for him in his pain.
Later in his life
he began answering the phone at a suicide hotline and realized
how many people keep their pain hidden from friends and family.
When he turned twenty-six, his oldest sister died and he felt no
motivation to help anyone since his own life was falling apart.
to “Why People Don’t Heal” by Caroline Myss, he saw how
his pain was going to bury him alive. He soon found out that the
only way he could heal was through forgiveness and through
seeing how pain is a teacher even when it made him sad and
Slowly he started
to see that he had a responsibility to love others. It wasn’t
enough to just say “I have problems of my own to deal with.”
He then wondered how he could help the healing process in
the world. He wondered what he would say to every human being living
today. What message would he give them?
“It is extremely difficult to
achieve world peace, to understand the need for dialogue with
all countries, with all cultures, when there are members of our
own family we don’t talk to anymore.” ~Robert Shahidi
contemplation, Robert seeks to answer the following questions:
Can we love those we do not trust?
Is love an act of faith?
How do you
deal with tragedy, a betrayal, suffering, pain?
What do you do when a friend lets you down?
Why did you trust the person at the start?
How do you keep open and loving when in pain?
What friend would want another friend to hurt?
Do you really know your friends or are they just a hazy image in
the picture of your own making?
Are you willing to heal or are you focusing on keeping the pain
Do you keep reliving the rejections, the pain, the moment of the
loss of love?
much love is needed, it has to start somewhere.
This is my offering.” ~Robert Shahidi
There are people
who have given up on their life, people who are afraid to love
anyone ever again and people who have never told anyone how much
pain they are really in. There are addictions, cases of abuse,
suicides and broken hearts where wounds are revisited and
remembered. There are people who are hurting in the world.
People we meet every day. One moment of your time might give
them hope. One word of encouragement might send them on a new
path in life, a path they never thought they could take. By
"Giving Love Away," you can find more fulfillment and happiness
to this CD four times in two days, I realized how many people
needed this CD. I started to make a list of people
in my life who would find healing through listening to the
loving message presented in calming words and music.
Each time you
listen to “Giving Love Away” you will hear a new message
that will be a gift for your heart. I almost felt that I was
listening to a new recording each time.
As I currently
listen to this for the fifth time, I am near tears as I realize
how much pain it must take to love this deeply. What a
beautiful gift from the heart. Robert Shahidi
could have closed down, rejected love and disappeared into the
masses. But instead he has reached into the deepest part of
his soul for a gift to give the world.
Calming, encouraging, inspirational and loving. A spoken word CD
to give to everyone you love to encourage an opening to love
instead of a closing in sadness.
