I began reading the book last night ~ I'll be honest and say I haven't read through a personal book in years. I've started several but put them down shortly after. Text books have been a constant companion over the past two years but they're not the same. In the more distant past, books served as a wonderful source for acquiring knowledge and insight. Plowing through copies of "The Essential Works of Carl Jung" and "If Life is a Game, These Are The Rules" have been downright life altering. But reading a good book is something that fell away after several traumatic experiences over the past 7 years. It's tough to read when your mind is racing and your heart is broken. So with the arrival of this book, an angel's gift straight from heaven, I'm turning over a new page in my own life.
My hope is to find the words to share my thoughts and feelings as I read through this book and I would love for you to join me. I know many times it's easier for me to communicate my own feelings when reading them through the musings of others. I'll leave you with a perfect example of this, directly from a page of Soul Journey...
""The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found a way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen."
