Sanity Savers 9: Real Books

scan

My mind and writing are occupied by my next interview, haven’t been able to blog this week, but want to share this, if in brief: the perfect book for this moment in history, a good read, lifts the spirit and  guides thinking. Author Stephen Cope of the Kripalu yoga center and learning institute, recounts episodes from the Bhagavad Gita where Krishna helps hero Arjuna meet his destiny. Each step in the journey is illustrated with the life stories of people who have met their destinies: Jane Goodall, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony, John Keats, Harriet Tubman, Henry David Thoreau, Robert Frost, Camille Corot, Marion Woodman, Ludwig von Beethoven, Mohandas K. Gandhi, and private individuals from Cope’s circle of acquaintances. Main chapters: Look to Your Dharma, Do It Full Out, Let Go of the Outcome, Turn it Over to God.
