Did any of you ever have a wonderful book that you’ve read many times come back to you in a new way? Well I did. Our son, Mark, has been becoming more interested in his Spiritual Path. I think having three little ones will do that to parents. We’ve been sharing DVD’s Joseph Smith, on myth and mythology, Huston Smith, on world religions and since he is a math nerd I suggested he get The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav.
He saw how thick the book is and called and said, “Mom, you do realize that I’m Mr. Mom and that the kids are seven, five and one? When do you think I’m going to have time to read this thick a book? Remember you and Carrie have problems with numerical characters and for me it’s the alpha ones?” It seems like in our family dyslexia was character specific. His sister and I struggle with numbers and he and Dale, my husband, struggle with alpha characters.
Like all good little tekies he “Googled” the author and title and came up with the book on audio. Gary Zukav reads the book on audio himself. After Mark listened to it he shared with Mom, “This book is a wonderful blending of science and metaphysics.” I knew he’d love it. For me the book shows how quantum physics, the string theory, and so many of the cutting edge sciences embrace what Eastern Religions, and Western Mystics have known all along we are one. As a presence on the planet all creation impacts upon one another. We are all traveling toward a path of awareness, together.
For those of you who don’t have the time to read or have challenges with alpha characters, I highly recommend the audio version. For those of you who like me look at a book like fine wine, or a beautiful work of art, get the book you’ll enjoy every minute in either format.
