Comprehensive collection of essentials for living a spiritual life
Colleen Mauro demonstrates one of the advantages of having decades of experience in spiritual journalism, with the seemingly effortless ease by which she presents thousands of years of spiritual pearls of wisdom. Mauro's new book, Spiritual Telepathy, is a page-turner packed with a very comprehensive collection of essentials for living a spiritual life. Mauro takes us on a journey through esoteric mystical wisdom teachings from the east and the west, which she shares in the gentle voice of a wise tour guide. Interviews with spiritual teachers and their insights and practices are interspersed in such a way that provides a real sense of how it feels, for example, to undertake the daily discipline of watching one's thoughts. Mauro provides many of her own experiences, too, in ways that indicate she truly is walking her spiritual development talk.
Some of my favorite sections of Spiritual Telepathy have to do with meditation practices we can utilize to redirect energy from lower to higher centers through right thought, speech, and action by "standing in their shoes" any time we feel the urge to direct negative energies toward others. I also love Mauro's practice of nightly review, which when done every day provides incentive to avoid gossip, and practice inner tranquility all day long.
Spiritual Telepathy is a book that provides seekers of all paths with great insights, direction, and validation, as well as with marvelous meditations and energy practices by which they can join together with increasing numbers of like-minded others. Spiritual Telepathy can help you find the "sweet spot" on your personal journey where your unique gifts and passion come together with the needs of the world.
