5.0 out of 5 stars shocking! excellent!, September 1, 2005
This review is from: Wild Nights: Conversations with Mykonos about Passionate Love, Extraordinary Sex, and How to Open to God (Paperback)
this book is one of the best i`ve ever read, and i read my share. but then i deeply respect and admire david deida, and have experienced time after time that even reading his works can open ones heart up and give taste of the deeper realm.

this book has scenes that is quite interesting, to say the least - and it is a great test to "stay open, as love" or suffer from the hearts contraction, fear and aversion.

one of my late inner fascinations is the truth that we will have to accept lifes ambiguities. rarely can one find masters and teachers like ramana maharshi, for instance, which are nothing but saintly purity. krishnamurti is an example of a wise man, strongly illuminated and full of wisdom. then, another time, he is clearly full of prejudgement and aversion. so most people would say "oh, he is so wise and beautiful" (which is true), and other would say "he is an angry and judgemental old man" (which is also true).

this books exposes clearly that one will have to accept the complexities, and trust ones inner, deepest truth.

and of course, my short review can`t make justice to the richness and variety of insights. mostly it is about the heart, about love and openness. i will soon read it again, and if you believe you can get anything out of it (without retracting into judgemental attitudes or easy generalisations) i urge you not to hesitate to find a copy. i read it in a day, still digesting!

bon apetite!
