Goodreads synopsis: Agnosticism + Logic + Faith = My Spirituality
These are the ingredients in my ice-cream cone, along with Soul Energy, Reincarnation, Karma, Detachment, Vegetarianism, Astrology, Meditation, and the Ego. I believe these concepts make some sense based on the tenets of logic and science. Even to a skeptic like me.
But I am entitled to change my mind at any time. If tomorrow someone were to show me some indisputable, miracle-backed proof that their way is the correct way and I will go to Hell if I don’t squat on one foot chanting 3.5 times a week, I will happily throw away my chocolate cone and switch to strawberry.
For now, here is what I believe, and why . . . .
There aren’t many books I give 5 stars to. Most fall into the 3-4 star range because I really don’t think that a Paranormal Romance/Sci-Fi/Fantasy/whatever other genre I may read at any given time could be life-changing, or I can’t see the book becoming a classic. This book though is one of a kind. Its the no-crap, logical look at why the author believes there probably is a Supreme Being and why. She uses modern day language and ideas to introduce her thought processes, and explains subjects in a clear-cut manner, ranging from Karma to Reincarnation to the idea of a Soul and Meditation . Later on, she goes on to introduce daily ways that the reader can introduce a more spiritual life into their already hectic daily life.
Perhaps if people would read this book and take it to heart, then we’d all be nicer to one another and the world would slowly evolve into a better place, the place we all hope for when we think about world peace and ending hunger and poverty.
