Engaging and Moving,
This review is from: Bridge Between Worlds: Extraordinary Experiences That Changed Lives (Paperback)
Author Dan Millman and editor Doug Childers have gathered almost 40 true-life stories of dramatic and miraculous events that forever changed the lives of their authors. Many of the better-known author's stories (such as Carl Jung, Bucky Fuller, Bill Wilson AA Founder) have been published before and are well documented; even so, I found details of these stories within Bridge Between Worlds that I hadn't been aware of previously. And the lesser-known author's stories are equally provocative and engaging, such as Valerie Vener, whose worst fear was death by fire and who survived forty-five minutes in a burning inferno with minimal injury. Her transformation occurred within that fire, when she finally surrendered to her own demise and in that very instant felt nothing but awe and wonder for the beauty of the fire. Her trust in the power of surrender and memory of the freedom she experienced in the flames have enduringly shaped her life.
Each story invokes the mysterious and the miraculous--often healing miracles--and one cannot help but be inspired and moved by reading them. The stories offer an expanded vision of reality that opens us to the possibility of something beyond the ordinary. Since I missed the original version of this book published in 1999 as Divine Interventions, I thoroughly savored reading this for the first time. However, some things are worth reading (and publishing) over and again. This book is a keeper.
