Arthur Gordon's book is awesome!
Consider what he says about receiving from giving. He writes, "...people who give admiration and affection get them back--if what they give is spontaneous and sincere. People are irresistibly drawn to 'warm' people."
He describes an interview he had with Rudyard Kipling. The famous author told Gordon, "Do the things you really want to do if you possibly can. Don't wait for circumstances to be exactly right. You'll find they never are."
Mysteries are explored in this reflective collection. Intuition, the unsolved, and similar musings. Life is celebrated! We're told "there are two types of human beings: those who think of life as a privilege and those who think of it as a problem."
Consider this poignant observation he makes on purpose, "The worst that can happen to any creature is to be made incapable of doing the thing it was created to do."
Perhaps the most famous Arthur Gordon quote is included in this book. It's one I've heard Guidepost writer and editor Fred Bauer use: "Be bold--and mighty forces will come to your aid."
This is an awesome book. Its contents are powerful. I highly recommend it. The quality of your life will be enhanced as you become aware of the positive perceptions that exist beyond the sometimes cloudy temporal state of affairs.
