Having said that, it's a lovely book to absorb, one reading at a time, which is why I give it 5 Stars. I read one insight each night and spend time in thought about the perspective. I absolutely adore this book.
'The Wisdom of Sundays' is a collection of insights, anecdotes, and sage advice from a mixture of personalities whom Oprah has interviewed on her show, Super Soul Sunday. In these interviews, she recalls moments when these renowned thought-leaders and visionaries expressed deep, compelling acuity on how they stay inspired by looking inward, in order to continue in their journey of truthful discernment.
The book is 8.25" X 6.75" and is bound cover to cover in a rough, but beautiful khaki denim cloth. In a surprising sensory delight, the book also emits a sweet, antique smell that has hints of clean, fresh cut wood mixed with vanilla. I am not sure if this was intentional by the publisher and Oprah, but it was a delightful surprise to my nose when I removed the book from the packaging, and each time I turned the page. Planted within gorgeous, vibrant photography that showcase images of nature and the great outdoors, the anecdotes and insights are offered in a calm conversational tone and style.
From what I've discerned thus far, an essential point of the book is that there are many avenues we each can go about finding inner peace in order to awaken our individual spirit. The human experience is as unique as there are people on earth. Even with this multitudinous collection of people and experiences, there are fundamental and philosophical basics that are universal and applicable to all human life; basics that we can all gain lifelong lessons from.
These basics are what this book shares with us. No matter your journey or how you go about brightening or enlightening your human experience, always look within and start with yourself. Open your mind, display your heart, nourish your soul, and appreciate the beauty and simplicity of ordinary things. The book highlights that our potential for greatness is vast and that we can succeed by harnessing these spiritual lessons.
As wondrous and magical as life can be, truth is, it gets cloudy. With discord, setbacks, and heartache, we get thrown off course, loosing our sense of belonging, our identity, and our hope. As a child christened in the Anglican Communion, and an adult who has maintained her Anglican faith, I often find comfort and solace in 'The Book of Common Prayer' and in the Bible, whenever I need guidance. Still, there are times when hearing the voices of others, of people I admire and trust, also gives me a boost. It is comforting to listen and hear how others attain their internal peace, maintain their balance, invigorate their passions, and reawaken their energy. This book is a wonderful example of all that.
After reading the first chapter alone, titled "Awakening," I feel warm and at home, as if an old friend just visited and gave me a hug while smiling brightly. I cannot wait to finish the rest of it. Needless to say, I highly recommend it, be you aged 10 or 100 and for all in between.
So...thank you, insomnia. For I have skimmed through the book and deeply read the first chapter. This beautifully arranged and sequenced curation of philosophies and insights, organized by theme, is like sitting down to a roundtable with some of our best thinkers and feelers. And I’m grateful for the invitation.
It took me about ten minutes to get my first A-HA...that soul is spirit. What I am also finding interesting is how folks from different walks of life, from Rob Bell to Michael Singer to Deepak Chopra, offer unique perspectives while being so aligned.
Because I’m a DIRECTV Now subscriber and OWN TV doesn’t authenticate with that service, I don’t have unbridled access to every episode of SSS. Now, for cord cutters and whatever the hell I am, we get more of a glimpse into our potential for an expanded and more open perspective...and dare I say a bit more inner peace for ourselves and compassion for others.
Well done, Team Oprah!
