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

He rode an old McClellan that had seen better days

But he sat up there like a king who controlled all he surveyed

His mount a buckskin mare as pretty as you’ve seen

With legs meant for working and eyes bright and clean

Behind him trailed a mule, a fine example of the breed

A pack piled high with goods but no halter or a lead

 

I asked him where he’s headed and where he might have been

The reason for his travel and what he might have seen

“I’ve seen the greatest country that God ever made

Sometimes mountain vistas, sometimes a grassy plain.

I’ve seen family members who make me feel ashamed

And many fellow workers who lie their way to fame

 

I’ve seen herds of caribou clicking cross the plain

Massive Mountain Grizzlies, great horses wild and tame.

I’ve seen massive progress ended by greedy fools

Or by those who need control and impose silly rules

And others stopping growth by thinking with their heart

When simple logic tells ‘em the horse is behind the cart.

 

We all get our little chance but others need a turn

The younger need some room to grow to build to learn

When I’ve done my time, my life here is thru

I don’t want my final vision to be only gloom and fools.

I’ll be free of all that as will the mule and mare

We’ve trod the greatest land, together scenery shared

 

It all makes my former life shallow and pale

And now where I travel nothing is ever stale

I’ve had my days of wealth measured in dollars and cents

With days, weeks and years surrounded by wall and fence

But now I have much more, a far greater treasure

Surrounded by natures wonders, beauty that can’t be measured

 

 

Any measure of success may not be right for all

The test that has some rise up will make others fall

I hope the path I travel and the message that I preach

Will be heard and understood by people that I meet

No one has the right to say that my view is wrong

Nor do I have the right to condemn another’s song

 

But enjoy the journey and help your fellow man

Have a laugh and learn, and make a proper stand

For something you believe, give it a proper fight

And if you should lose and you know you might

Within your heart you’ll know you did your very best

And did what you thought right when put to the test.
