Review: This is an inspirational book written with honesty and humility. Lipa Rath did not believe in God until she was shaken up by her elder sister’s sudden death. More trouble was to ravage her, hurtling her from one crisis to another. It was her discovery of spirituality that eventually gave her the strength to tackle life’s numerous problems. It was also her spiritual strength that made her forgive the man who tried to strangle her. Love and forgiveness, surrender to God, deep devotion, power of the mind, fear and negativity, health and happiness, will power, introspection, health, healing, affirmation, karma, spirit within, desires, death. A disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, Lipa covers every aspect of life with a rare candor. The book talks about the courage that one needs to possess to overcome difficulties in life and the need to have faith in divine. It talks about how the university is a labyrinth and every one is a catalyst in it, connected to each other.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
