Statement by Beverly Sue Burk,
As to the lie about the family:
To say that Aesthetic Realism separates families is nothing but hogwash. When my daughter began to study Aesthetic Realism in telephone consultations from our hometown of Springfield, Missouri, I saw her becoming a kinder and warmer daughter, and she wanted to know me more deeply. This was so new, and I wanted to study Aesthetic Realism for myself. I was just divorced, in a lot of pain, and looking to understand myself and my former husband, and how I contributed to our split-up.
As in many families, there was a lot of conflict between me and my late mother-in-law. In Aesthetic Realism consultations I was encouraged to see her more deeply, as having thoughts and feelings as deep as my own. I no longer have that hostile feeling toward her. I learned it wasn't up to me to change other people, but to be kind and to want to know them.
I wasn't taken in! I come from Missouri, the "Show Me" state, and Aesthetic Realism showed me how to value the people in my family, and because of it I'm closer to my daughter, mother and sister than ever before.
