Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth in Your Life Story

4.02  ·  Rating Details  ·  57 Ratings  ·  9 Reviews
An inspiring new book from one of our greatest living spiritual teachers. All of these stories teach us that we aren't who we think we are. How we have defined ourselves is not the truth of ourselves. What we think we must have is already present, and when we think we have lost the value of our lives, it is still here if we know where to look.

HIDDEN TREASURE is not one of your run-of-the-mill books on spirituality. It’s a major find.

So what makes her book so special? There’s a highly vulnerable, female, and bitingly intelligent quality to her writing that is both deeply personal and quite moving. At the same time, she can be as tough as Krishnamurti or and as uncompromising as Tony Parsons. And yet, she’s naturally humble...ordinary. Just another person. Like you. Like me.

There’s an extremely personal, intimate quality to her accoun

Many parts of this book reiterate the points often expressed by Gangaji in satsang recordings, radio programs and interviews. Her quick recap of her own story is more meaningful if you have read her biography "Just Like You" by Gangaji and Roslyn Moore. Still, even though many parts of this book were already quite familiar to me, I enjoyed reading it, because every time I read something from Gangaji, I hear her voice, I feel her more than ever. Always grateful for her invitation to Self!

I picked this book up because I heard fascinating things about it on NPR. I found it really difficult to get into for the first 2/3 of the book. The ending was very informative, but it just took so darn long to get there. Perhaps if I re-read this the beginning will make more sense. The first part of the book describes how our life stories define us and how we can interject ourselves into other people's life stories, as well. The ending discusses how we can actually begin to accept all the pain ...more

This book in a nutshell (in the author's own words): "I yearned to be free of my persistently recurring self-involvement."

I loved Gangaji's "Diamond in Your Pocket" and loved this book even more. It soothes me when I read that my trials in life DO have purpose and that I can come to the point where I tolerate those trials with confidence and peace. Not only does she tell me that, she seems to be an example of someone who has found that peace. She does not say that life is just a bowl of cherries, she says that we have Something within that can help us deal with lemons and come out on the other side stronger and wis ...more

I really got a lot out of Gangaji's other book, Diamond in Your Pocket--I'm actually surprised I only gave it 4 stars, as I recall even copying pages for my sister (who really needs to hear about letting your victim story go). This book felt like a dull rehashing and just did not grab me in the same way.
