it was amazing

I bought this book while at Holy Island in England in May, so it will always have a special place in my heart and remind me of my trip. My soul felt called to buy the book. In England, the sacred places just seem a little more sacred than the ones I’m used to in the U.S. They feel like comforting sanctuaries, and that was a feeling I wanted to keep cultivating in my everyday life.

This book took me a while to finish, just because it was not a fast read. I really wanted to spend time with each page, dwell on the words and ponder the thoughts. I did a lot of underlining. I for sure will be returning to this book again and again.

Oddly enough, I bought it and then later in the year I ended up doing so much more self-reflection and meditation, primarily through instituting a near-daily Ashtanga yoga practice. I didn’t have those plans when I bought the book. That’s why I say my soul knew I needed the book before my mind did. Intuition has a great way of working out.
