The Shack – William P. Young

5/5 Stars. Though I found the book to be a bit cliche and corny at certain points, I will say that a book hasn’t moved me like this one has in a long time. It actually made me feel something aside from just interest in seeing what happens next. The work tackles some very deep […]

The Universe in a Single Atom 

The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality by His Holiness The Dalai Lama This book is perfect for critical thinkers and analytical minds like my own. For a very long time I have been trying to integrate my spiritual side with the logical and  inquisitive parts of myself and not […]

Eleven Minutes – Paulo Coelho

I sincerely love the way Paulo Coelho writes and the way he implicitly shares in all his works that there are things we cannot know and cannot completely understand–like how the meeting of two people can spark a vibrant passion and the meeting of two others spurs nothing at all, while the former two are […]
