Awakening Spirits: A Native American Path to Inner Peace, Healing, and Spiritual Growth (Religion and Spirituality) Reviews
What this man writes about is what I have been sensing for a while.....trouble is, many might consider it alternative/new age/too much out there. Why are we so scared of anything that goes beyond what we may understand and believe right now. I would have probably tossed it out a couple of years ago, but my search for greater abundance and living of life has kept me seeking beyond my comfort zone, not to mention that of those around me. I have been living in rural Kansas for the last 6 months, with little more than bunnies, birds and mice to entertain me, and I believe this has quiet ended my mental chatter sufficiently for the inner more real/authentic part of me to start emerging and receiving, can't wait for the transmitting part to kick in.
I followed "Grandfather" on his quest for spiritual awaking and how he was raised to not trust the white man, with good reason. Also, we are allowed to find out how he overcame many physical problems to raise his spiritual awareness and to "shake off the natural man" so that his spirit eyes could be opened. I wasn't really ready for the wealth of spiritual information which awakened within me as I made my own journey and I was able to find "truth" in my own religion and verify those things which I have already become aware of on my own. This book brought a whole new "truth" to me, which allowed my spirit to soar!
After taking a couple of Brown's Philosophy courses, I started spending the "dirt time" to get into the spiritual part of what he teaches. Brown himself told my class that he writes this kind of book to support the Philosophy track courses. Getting out of the box of White Man culture is not so easy, for those who live in their heads. One needs to spend time in Wilderness, or solitude, alone, to let the spirit bubble up into consciousness, no book can substitute for that. Other books I've found help with this subject-
I'm gonna be blunt...I love this book. I have previously read a few of Tom Brown Jr's field guides, and his writing style is great. Unlike most of his material, this book is about spirituality. I feel that he hits the nail on the head. The meditation methods that he offers really work for me. I would--and have--suggested this material to friends!
Despite experiencing recurrent choking on the rampant racism, and the purported spiritual ignorance of "white" people (the book being written by a "white" man might explain this twisted view), the original insights and universal truths of Grandfather are available for the reader, and I am thankful to the author for that. It is what I was looking for and it helps.
The books by this author are excellent and I highly recommend it. The practices given in this book are very good, easy to do, and have helped me a lot. I believe that Grandfather, Tom Brown's mentor, is one of the great enlightened souls of our time and I somehow feel close to him and indebted to him. These books are teaching me so much about life, and how to spend time being a part of nature.
Practical application based in an engaging narrative. Kinda changed my life!
