Cities Of The Soul
AuthorHouse, 2007 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 44 pages
Dr. Rod Birney's Cities of the Soul is an inspired and inspiring fable that chronicles one person's soulful journey venturing from city to city, discovering along the way enlightenment as she/he transitions from darkness and ignorance to illumination; from moral turpitude and depravity to virtue; from avarice and greed to generosity and kindness; from anger and judgment to compassion; from arrogance and pride to humility and respectfulness; and from ignorance to divine inspiration, wisdom, and the sublime. A person once lost, now found. In the second portion of this exquisite volume, the enlightened traveler, wise by virtue of all that has been accrued along the way, is ideally suited to facilitate the reader's own journey of the Soul. By way of thought-provoking guided imagery and visualization exercises, the reader is encouraged to go deep; to explore the dark recesses of the past and the hidden niches of the mind; to dare to remember; to re-experience; and to take ownership of, and embrace, all those aspects of the undiscovered self that must ultimately be acknowledged and integrated into consciousness if the reader is to become whole -- and to arrive. But whether the journey is the author's or the reader's, it is one of courageous self-discovery, a journeying from mindlessness to mindfulness, from obliviousness to awareness, and from not-knowing to heartfelt knowledge, peaceful serenity, harmonious balance, and oneness with the Source. Inspired by Dr. Birney, I have now found myself embarking on my own journey... Martha Stark, M.D.
