That the impressions Sylvia received from her guide is compatible with the recent papers submitted by deep Biblical scholars regarding the unedited (by the early and subsequent versions of "the church") life of the historical Jesus Christ.
The plot with Pontius Pilate. Something that I had never before considered, but plausible. Very stimulating idea.
Excellent inflection, timing, and timbre of her voice.
Smiled a great deal and stirred my heart deeply.
I highly recommend to all Sylvia Brown fans. One of her best.
I didn't have the print edition for comparison.
Dalai Lama,"beyond religion". Because it is a story of one man's suffering and eventual redemption. The Dalai speaks of humans as having this divine gift of overcoming suffering and finding their spiritual essence. Louis Zamperini is one of those humans. He endured more than seemed possible for one man to endure and love was the driving force in his redemption.
Louis and Phil.
The calm day in the raft when they became enlightened sitting in the calm beauty of the sea and sky.
Intriguing. Inspiring. Solid.
Simon Butler. He embodies the spirit of the American explorer.
Laugh and cry.
Simple. Practical. Beautiful.
I can think of no other who has offered such a global scope of religious synopsis tempered with scientific progress without advocating for one view over the other, as has been done for centuries. His Holiness offers a unique view, as he is uniquely qualified to speak to us as one who was born into an humble family, raised in privilege, yet lives in exile.
I enjoyed the way that Martin Sheen emphasized words and syllables, with tone and timbre he caused me to forget that this was Martin Sheen performing and not the Dalai Lama himself speaking, many times.
