5.0 out of 5 stars Brave and transformative, 29 Jan. 2012
By 
This review is from: Finding Your Way In A Wild New World: Four steps to fulfilling your true calling (Paperback)
Martha Beck's previous books Finding Your North Star and Steering by Starlight have already been the catalyst and ongoing guides for real change for the better in my life. This one takes it to the next level again and it's interesting too to see the development of Martha's own thinking, or way of living. To me it's like layers are peeled off and actually with each book 'the process' gets simpler and simpler. Not easier to put into practice, maybe, but simpler and fewer steps. And this feels like getting closer to the truth about life.

In contrast to the North Star especially, now there's almost no analysis and planning you need to do to find your right life; less work to do. According to Finding Your Way..., and what my own experience seems to affirm, you just sense and pick the right path each moment. The book comes close to being the 'How To' companion to Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now.

The book is bravely written sharing very intimate and personal experiences, but in a way that feels open and appropriate, not exhibitionist. While you could have made it a much shorter 'guide', I enjoyed and found moving and inspirational the stories about Martha's own journey of discovery of the reality she's talking about.

This book may not be immediately accessible if you're not familiar with the spiritual ideas, such as energies and 'everything is connected', or have never experienced something like that in your life. But even so you'll probably enjoy this engagingly written book, and find something that strikes a chord.

I believe this will be a milestone book for the new spiritualism. Apart from being a revelation and transformative in itself, it makes sense of all the main concepts and ideas in that field, such as 'creating what you imagine', being present, being one with nature, listening to your body etc. In my view, this book gives the definitive, no nonsense but profound, answer to pretty much all spiritual questions and how to live fully!

It has taken immense courage to write, and will take as much courage for any of us to put into practice. Once you've truly had enough of being unhappy, you'll probably do that.
