The highs and lows of the materialistic world we live in captured beautifully by Suhail. Success can often turn people in to egotistical, self obsessed, inconsiderate individuals. What’s beautiful about Suhail’s journey is the acknowledgment that he too got caught up in this ‘fake’ world, which by the sounds of things didn’t bring him true happiness. It’s only when he was true to himself that he started understanding the true meaning and purpose of life.
I found that there is a lot to take away from this book. It's based on ancient wisdom and philosophy rather than a narrow religious view and I think that gives it a lot of strength. In these uncertain times there are a lot of reasons why people want to reconnect with themselves but most advice revolves around finding a 'hack'. For those who know that there are no shortcuts to personal change this book provides a lot of practical advice, reality checks and reassurance.
I did not know what to expect from this book as there are so many spiritual books out there which make so many promises; this was different from the opening pages. Just reading the words was healing in itself and I found that the book made me think about life and it’s deeper meaning. I intend to read it again and implement it’s 10 steps “spiritual solutions” in an effort to find more inner peace in my life.
