The Invitation

Postby Geoff » Thu Apr 12, 2012 3:37 am

Oriah Mountain Dreamer ISBN 0-7225-4045-0

The book is based on a fabulous poem she wrote, which went around the world. Then she turned it into a book. It starts:

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive...

If you have been abused, this is a book that tells you you are ok. That others have been there, survived, and got strong. She has a concept of faithlessness, which takes some time to understand. But it is good. It says sometimes you have to let others down, to be true to yourself.

An awesome book.
Love commands the universe. Man only resorts to control when love is missing.
