With an insight that is balanced between Buddhist teachings and Socratic dialogues from the "other side", Soul Sins and Regrettable Lies cuts through traditional religious and cultural rhetoric to get to the heart of how and why we wound others, ourselves and our world. More importantly, it reminds us that we are not hapless drones released here by some cosmic accident, but powerful alchemist practitioners of energy and creators of our own reality.
"Soul Sins and Regrettable Lies” by Bud Megargee was really good! I am into books like this, with people overcoming their own issues to become better and stronger in life, and hopefully inspire others as well. So I was curious to see what this book would offer. Although I thought the beginning was kind of slow, and it seemed to take a while for me to reach that magical spot where I just had to keep reading, once I was there I was totally hooked. There is quite a bit of ‘setting up the stage’ of action on the beginning, and the pacing slows when we are introduced to new key people, but then it all starts to make sense. Great dialogue, and it is far more ‘wide-reaching’ and more introspective than I thought it would be, but with groundbreaking ideas that some might find controversial, others might find to be very comforting. It is a quick read, one I finished in the course of a few evenings, and thought the narrative was great, very solid and straightforward – even while being a little ‘out-there’ at times. Regardless, I really enjoyed it and thought it had some great advice and messages that will help others.
