Robin Korth believed in conventional rules and never thought to question what she was doing—or not doing. Then, in 2006, Korth found herself slammed against a wall of regret, confusion and despair that forced her to face her fears, her failures, and her disappointments. She willingly accepted her role in the choices that led her very near to self-destruction and a deep sense of personal loss. She then embraced her soul’s desire to soar and stepped out of her past. It is from this place that she embarked upon her journey towards what she calls practical spirituality, writing Soul on the Run (Balboa Press 2014) along the way.
Soul on the Run is the gut-wrenchingly honest portrayal of one woman’s search for herself, and her refusal to continue playing the game of “let’s pretend everything is okay.” What’s more, it reminds us—when we are honest with ourselves—we can start life over at any age. Korth’s words are pithy and raw, sometimes almost brutal, and often just plain funny. There are common sense insights into doing life and a sometimes mystic questing into the hidden avenues of the human heart. To read this book is to journey into your own heart and spirit. The questions and comments of this woman’s piercing search for joy and meaning will spark your own. You cannot read this book without becoming a participant in your own soul’s journey towards life.
A few “Robinisms” from Soul on the Run
• It really sucks to come in second in your own life. It sucks even more to think this is okay.
• “I can’t” so many times means “I choose not to.” Isn’t it more honest and easy to simply state this fact?
• What’s worse than dying? Never having really lived. Major, major mistake.
• When God knocks, it isn’t such a great idea to keep saying, “Wait a minute.”
• “Change” is a word that does its best work wearing a sweat suit.
“This is not an innocent book. It brooks no whiney nay saying. You are brought up short by the honesty to yourself that it demands,” says Jean Houston, PhD, author and visionary cultural activist. According to Houston, Soul on the Run will inspire readers to think about their own situations, asking themselves, “Why didn’t I ever say that, think that, do that?” or even sadder yet, ”Why didn’t I live deep enough, fierce enough, and with radical self-knowledge so as to see more sharply and then live more powerfully?”
