Life is a long journey and many existential questions remain unanswered. What do we do on earth? Why bring someone into the world if it is to see him die? And what does this never-ending pandemic have to do with us other than thwarting our plans? These are all questions for those who have faith and those who lack it. Nevertheless, the author makes us realize that each lived experience leads to one or even more realizations.
Everyone has their own beliefs and the idea of this book is not to convince that one is better than another. Moreover, the author, Catherine Martin, who lives in the south of France, dedicates her book to believers, atheists, agnostics and also to those who seek answers. Specifically, she is a life lover who enjoys bringing people together to share her discoveries and the joys of life through conferences and group trips.
It is through several anecdotes that the author makes us realize that each thing, each event, each meeting and each experience has a certain utility. Moreover, she dedicates an entire chapter to chance which in fact does not exist and that it is rather synchronicity. Even illness or accidents are not inevitable. In the word disease, we notice “evil said” and “the soul said”. According to the author, the disease is only the luminous witness of a dysfunction or a disagreement between our soul, our body and our spirit. A poorly managed emotional problem will break the camel’s back, because everything that affects me infects me. So, to avoid creating infectious foci or an emerging disease, let’s learn to express verbally or in writing what is wrong in order to get rid of it.
Love and harmony
Many problems can be solved by showing love for oneself and for others. Gratitude, respect and kindness are all principles to be put into practice in order to give meaning to life. Because in addition to doing good, these qualities also manage to make others happy and illuminate hearts by placing a balm with tenderness on someone, allowing to live harmoniously and accept the unacceptable.
