"Opening the Gates of the Heart" offers readers a gentle reminder of the blessings available to us all when we open worlds of new possibilities in our lives. The gates pictured in this book embody such an exquisite range of barriers in terms of material, size, and visual and emotional impact that they perfectly represent the multitude of ways we so often close ourselves off from love, beauty, joy, peace and eternal happiness. The overall net effect of seeing so many forms of barriers combined with such thoughtful musings on topics ranging from absence of judgment, to growth of character, to path of acceptance provides readers a sense that just the act of reading book is actually an act of undertaking a glorious personal journey to inner peace.
Carolyn Jones has a rare gift for sharing just enough verbiage on every other page of "Opening the Gates of the Heart" to truly touch the reader's heart. The words seamlessly match photographs of gates, in such a way that opening the book to any random set of pages becomes an invitation to embark on a meditative journey. Carolyn Jones' words are written with such tender care as to soothe even those feeling great pain, and with such inspiration as to encourage readers to trust this author to take them places hitherto unknown and unseen.
"Opening the Gates of the Heart" is highly recommended to anyone seeking peace and happiness as a direct experience of being fortunate enough to hold this book in hand, and as the perfect gift for someone who has everything, or is simply in need of feeling love, peace and acceptance in their life.
I read the book from cover to cover in the first sitting and the experience was one of being opened up much like the gates in the book. How extraordinary! What a gift this writer has!
I would recommend this book to everyone who has ever had or is having very hard times. I think it would make a wonderful book for book clubs, for group therapy of any and every kind, for treatment facilities of every kind, for psychology classes from Junior High and up, for those who are grieving, and for anyone who has ever lost their way.
