Awakening the Soul of Power: How to Live Heroically and Set Yourself Free


Must read 🏆

A book that teaches us how to be heroes and why the world needs more heroes.

I strongly believe in serendipity and so it doesn't surprise me that I picked up the book I needed to read right at the end of a year that has changed pretty much everything. I regularly review the year in late December and look forward to the new year and what I hope to accomplish, and what I hope to be, and this book was the ideal guide in my endeavours. As the author himself said, "Arguably, humanity is at the most critical juncture in the evolution of our species. We could even say that we are at a make-it -or-break-it point." And "What we need is nothing less than a spiritual revolution."

You could say this book is about heroes, a la Joseph Campbell, and why the world needs more of them. We can all live heroically, contributing to humankind and our own communities, and in order to be effective we of course have to grow and spiritually evolve. I loved this book and strongly believe in the book's content. There is so much to learn, about the ego, power, leadership, healing, the soul, and so on. Reading the book and trying the exercises (I have done a few so far) gave me more clarity and hope; it's definitely the sort of book you would want to reread too, to remind you of how to overcome some of the pitfalls humans encounter which stop us from becoming greater versions of ourselves.

I always find it interesting when non-fiction writers explain how their background took them towards their line of work. Being an outsider myself (as the author said he was) some of what he wrote about his life really resonated with me, and it's clear why he wrote this book and why he was the right person to write it. 5 stars, highly recommended.
