Blissfull books & ballads - heart-stirring reviews & songs inspired by classic spiritual ..., David M. Bradshaw - electronic bk

2020 has been a year of metamorphosis for humanity. Everything from politics to employment to personal relationships is now being shaken, rattled and rolled so that what remains can rest upon a firmer foundation. For many, the puzzle pieces of their life have become jumbled amid the pandemic of 2020. The picture on the box cover may no longer be recognizable. A new and larger vision might be helpful to fit our disunited lives back together into a new whole. Millions now find themselves with a bit more free time to learn and reflect on what's most important in life and how to find the strength and inspiration to achieve it. Welcome to the next step on your journey to discover the "hidden wholeness" in every single circumstance in your life, including both the "good" and the "bad." Fasten your seat belt. You're about to be briefed by ten of the world's most inspiring spiritual authors on how to live a fulfilled life. I hope you will resonate with this orchestra of diverse perspectives offering a single, harmonious message and sound. Today wisdom traditions worldwide are converging to form a beautiful spiritual tapestry which reflects unity on the essentials, diversity on the non-essentials, and love in all things, from the greatest to the least. What follows are my reviews of classic spiritual books written by ten transformational authors including; C.S. Lewis, Richard Rohr, Cathleen Dowling Singh, James Finley, Henri Nouwen, John Dear, Barbara Brown Taylor, Michael Morrell, Eric Greitens and Parker J. Palmer. Because music is the language of the soul, I've also been led to write humble ballads for each book which I hope will further distill and share the essential truths extracted from each author. I believe our personal inspiration helps draw out the inspiration of others. Therefore, after recording these simple ballads I plan to submit them to my musically-talented family and friends in hopes they'll be inspired to add their own unique contribution to the final mix to be posted at
