Something Shifted: Navigating the Path from Shame to Grace

Description

Why do we do the things we do? How do we shift from one place to another? One day, things are going fine, as we may find ourselves skipping gleefully and whistling while we work; the next day, we may find ourselves schlepping one foot in front of the other with our heads hung low. How did author Peter Osterbauer go from being a successful and respected husband, father, and doctor living in a large home on the side of a mountain, to an adulterous, alcoholic, occultist living in a tiny room in someone's basement he found on Craigslist? How and why do we sabotage ourselves? More importantly, how do we shift back on track once we've dug ourselves into a pit?

Life can be the same. We can be working toward some goal, be it a college degree, starting a family, or living a peaceful life, and a slight shift can send us in a different direction. One small shift can start a chain reaction, sending us into a tailspin of destruction or on the road to freedom. 

Join author Peter Osterbauer as he reveals how this type of change transpired in his life, and explore how it may have happened in yours. Together, you will discover how to make corrective shifts if you have wandered off the straight and narrow course. If you are trapped in a way of life that you detest, but don't know how to find your way out, this book is for you. If you are in quicksand of shame and self-loathing, this book is for you. If you've lost all hope and are on the verge of giving up, this book is definitely for you!

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
