A world of sacred and mysterious possibility,
By A Customer
This review is from: Love Is Stronger Than Death: The Mystical Union of Two Souls (Hardcover)
To journey through Cynthia Bourgeault's book is to embrace a world of sacred and mysterious possibility. A story of love, yes, yet the love expressed in the union of these two highly evolved souls is not one of sentimentality and dependence, but of shared freedom and continued growth. This poignant sharing is a rich source for gaining insight into the human condition, for glimpsing the rigorous challenge of a monastic calling, for understanding relationships - both human and Divine. Indeed, it is a roadmap that might be used by others on a similar path. Much of her writing appeals to me, from its accessible and easy flowing style to her ability to imbed it within that traditions of her faith. She emerges as a vulnerable yet resilient person whose deep grounding in her spiritual commitment lends substantial credibility to her experience. I would be grateful if she would continue to share this journey of creativity and love as it unfolds with Rafe.
