Well, this is a first for me, writing a review on something. Please bare in mind that English
is not my first language and that my literary skills are akin to those of a gorilla, so I beg your
compassion.(sorry Shakespeare, sorry Cervantes, I'm very, very sorry)
During my quest for self-knowledge I've read many wonderful books on mysticism, meditation and
spirituality of both the eastern and western traditions, from authors like Vivekananda, Yogananda,
Madam Blavatsky, Carl Jung, H. Spencer Lewis, Nicholas Roerich, St Teresa of Avila and
Louis Claude de Saint-Martin, among many others.
Now, if you are entertaining the idea of beginning the practice of meditation, but feel somewhat unsure,
here are some reasons why I think you'll love this book as much as I do.
1. it focuses on practice rather than theory
I feel a lot of veneration, admiration and gratitude towards the Masters of all ages, but for me
there is no higher authority than experience. If for some reason or Divine Grace I were to become
enlightened right this moment, how would I be able to convey that experience to you? It would be
like an eskimo trying to explain to me how a whale mac or a whale whopper tastes like. Even if he
succeeds in the attempt, I would never know how a whale tastes to him, unless by some kind of higher
faculty or consciousness the barrier between him and I, subject and object, became dissolved.
At this instant you would be right in asking me, but Jose why then take this review into consideration?
That's exactly my point, you have to experience meditation for yourself. This book will help you do it.
2. Maybe I'll never know what you feel during the meditative state and vice versa. Nonetheless, I believe
in the power of sharing. In the act of sharing our pain, our scars, our vulnerability, we can help
each other into achieving a better version of ourselves. This is what Sharla does in this book, she gives
you the gift of herself, which brings me to:
3. She's here! She's among us! You can e-mail her if you have any doubts.
She is a fountain of love and experience.
I hope this will help you on your journey.
Peace and Happiness
Hope will meet in the Himalayas
