The Power of Reading

100_1481

A Quote from the book, “The Way of Serenity”:

“Reading forces us to think, to grapple with ideas and concepts, and inevitably to examine our lives and choices. It challenges our minds and souls. To be spiritual means, in the first place, to recognize and pursue an interior dimension to being human. It means taking a step back to consider and reflect – on the present, the past, and the future.”

So what great book are you going to read today? And what great mysteries will you discover?

  1. “…to recognize and pursue an interior dimension to being human.” Fabulous. Our western culture doesn’t value this because its worth cannot be measured in money.

  2. This is such a beautiful quote.
