I read Gregg Braden's Divine Matrix first which was published after this book, and they contain similar material. However, you will gain from reading both.
It is a delightfully packaged little book, small, red and with a padded cover. You are drawn to it before you read one word of the stunning content.
The first page tells you everything about it:
"This book is written for those in search of comfort in the presence of fear and uncertainty in our world. In those moments when life's hurts tear into the hidden places of your soul, I invite you to enter the refuge of beauty, blessing, our lost mode of prayer, and the deep wisdom that each rests upon..."
Yes, other books will claim this too, because having read dozens of books about spirituality, it is no surprise the best are all singing the same song. What makes this book different is that it is free from jargon, and puts the complex message over powerfully as five core `secrets.'
I have long used the expression `you're a beauty' [probably gleaned from Robert Lindsay's Fagin in Oliver Twist], as a term of endearment, without ever really paying attention to its deeper meaning. Braden breathes life into the word and explains how beauty, whilst subjective holds us all in its thrall.
So, when you pray feel the answer, imagine what you want has happened, learn from hurt, use the power of blessing in your life, let beauty `be the transformer' and create your own prayers.
Simple? Yes. Powerful? Incredibly. How? Get the book.
