A book written to my inner-soul!! Soo..wonderful!
on January 4, 2010
I picked up this book early in July 2009, seeking a book, a memoir, a biography of anyone living NOW that would enlighten me, motivate me, inspire me, and I came across Maryam Kabeer Faye's book, "A Journey Through 10,000 Veils". I would have to say the title and the cover attracted me first. When I began to read it..I couldn't put it down. I even got a high lighter marker to high light things that 'got me', towards the end of the book, I realized I highlighted just about the whole book!! You wouldn't believe it, but really I felt this connection w/ the author..it was as if I was reading my own Journey, just sooo many things she experienced I was like, HEYYYY I know what she's talking about! Some of the things that I have experienced were so similar to hers, places she went to, feelings she felt..my father was from Jerusalem, from a town called il Izareeya #Bethany#...when she wrote about her walks there and the connection that she had felt with Jesus, peace be upon him, especially when she was there, I totally understood her emotions. Often, I felt her words were speaking to me! I felt like this book was written just for me, for MY SOUL! I think anyone who is searching for a deeper meaning to life, a connection w/ God, for spirituality, for deep friendships for God's sake..you will really enjoy reading Journey Through 10,000 Veils.
When I was a child growing up I really felt a connection with a book called, "Are You My Mother" by P.D. Eastman. This book, "Journey Through Ten Thousand Veils" is a grown-up version to that. :)
Anyway, I just had to share w/ you all how much this book affected me! You can't imagine the great impact it had on me. I was truly sad when I completed the book b/c it felt like a dear friend departed from me.. I truly love her for God's sake..and I feel so blessed for getting an opportunity to read it...this book is a Treasure!
Peace and Blessings to all..
