"Way of the Peaceful Warrior"
When I was in the military, and living in Lemoore, I was exposed to a lot of metaphysical things. Crystals, Creative Visualization, even the Bhagavad Gita
and the I Ching
. Back then we were soul searching, and the middle of the desert seemed like the right place. I even remember someone suggesting that I read Way of the Peaceful Warrior, but at the time it didnít speak to me. I was a warrior, I was a Marine, but I was anything but peaceful. Then, interestingly enough, I ran across this book last month when I was looking for something in philosophy.
Iíve read Socrates Cafe a few years, Iíd love to find another book like that, so I was doing a search on Amazon for Socrates when this book came up. I remembered it from years ago, and after reading a little of it on Amazon I felt that I should get it. I even found an old copy, with the cover I remember from the 80s. When it got here I could hardly put it down. Itís a short book, only 210 pages, but itís a great read that speaks to me at this point in my life. Iím still soul searching, even though I found a lot of answer through life, but this book put into words a few ideas that eluded me over the years. Itís entertaining, but is filled with a lot of stuff to chew on. I even know now that I should change my diet, but Iím not ready to go that far right now. But I did pick up a book on meditation.
Itís a quick read that will make you think about your life, always a good reason to read a book. I canít recommend it enough.
