Finding Time for Your Self: A Spiritual Survivor’s Workbook by Patty de Llosa contains fifty-two thought-provoking reflections on questions raised by daily life, which are followed by practical exercises that will help you stay inwardly alive and present to meet life’s many challenges. The author has taken 52 different topics to reflect upon, each topic being looked at from a different angle for 5 days (of a week perhaps), thus covering an entire year. The exact topic derived for reflecting on each day varies from the most esoteric to those quite earthly in nature, and is enough to satiate one, however rare the orientation.
The sublime thoughts contained in Finding Time for Your Self: A Spiritual Survivor’s Workbook by Patty de Llosa is enough to engage people. From the most versatile to those heavily restrained, or from the most progressive to the sad reactionary, this can serve a large group of people, however varied the intellectual disposition. Whether ‘The present moment is an interrogatory state’, or ‘Just as each day begins with new energy, each breath also represents a fresh cycle’, the invocations represented by each of these can keep the mind more or less completely engaged, without fear of going astray. The author deserves credit for identifying such topics that possess the quality of not getting answered easily. This is a good book to read, and more so for those fond of abstractions.
