"What is my purpose on earth?" is the question author and seeker Mohmood Valimohamed asks in the dedication of his fine new book. Book of Wisdom, this reviewer determined, not only sheds light on the question, the same light illuminates the path to discovery.
Mr. Valimohamed, in easy to digest prose, leads the reader to an understanding of life by offering us enlightenment of what the Creator provides.
For instance, "Suffering is a blessing in disguise." It is the way your soul comes closer to God. "During periods of suffering, you explore the depths of your soul." A means to encourage your spiritual growth dramatically is forgiveness. "First you must accept and forgive all the harm that has been done to you. Do not continue the cycle by responding angrily to the individual who mistreated you."
Another means is the power of silence. "Jesus Christ said, the kingdom of God is within you. The only way to get a glimpse of this kingdom is to go silently inside yourself." Book of Wisdom leads the reader through many other paths to find spiritual growth: Witnessing as a form of total meditation, total surrender of yourself,your ego, your aggression and your strategies to find humbleness, love of the material and, in its ultimate form, of God.
With understanding to a degree this reviewer may never achieve, Mohmood Valimohamed leads the way. "Step by step, we rise higher and higher until, finally, we are ready to join the universal consciousness." Using both Eastern and Western philosophies, Book of Wisdom teaches that "The seed of enlightenment is in our hearts." This precious gift is the purpose and value of this excellent book. Thank you, Mr. Valimohamed!
