A good meditation on the shift of paradigm the world is going through. Sort of a Hot, Flat, and Crowded from the perspective of creativity. Of course, those who are most creative have always pushed the edge of change in every field, Godin joins the chorus of voices pointing out that that is one of the most valuable qualities to have in the information age and throws down the gauntlet for the life creative.
How can you know where yer going if ya don't know where you've been?
Also, why did the chicken cross the road?
I have practiced for some time in another tradition. I have since moved on from that particular path and have been looking for something re-spark my connection to inner work. I am only interested in something that brings direct experience and not layered with other prerequisites or leaps of faith that contradict common sense and verifiable experience. I have been listening to this series and am only about a fifth of the way through but have found it to be all that I have been looking for and more. Ray is direct, humble, knowledgeable, sincere, and articulate in his delivery. I have indeed found my fire to be rekindled. Thanks.
I saw another review asking about a tracks list, I don't have an answer to that but something I found helpful was the Audible app in my iPhone allowed me to bookmark places and add a note. So, for example, I could bookmark the place where the vase breathing technique is described, label it, and go back to the exact spot whenever I want.
This book served as a more in-depth review of the events related to the conflict than I had knowledge of, while at the same time giving ground level, personal accounts from two people intimately tied to the history and each other.
Spiritually minded? Want to start the new year with an uplifting read? Then this may be for you. The stories and writings of a wide spectrum of sages, saints, and so-forth make up the body of this work. Read effectively by a variety of voices, different genders, various ages. I was reminded of the "work" of some inspiring beings and learned of some I have never heard of. I'm glad I stumbled upon this one, it has helped shape a good start to 2012 for me.
