Donald Michael Craig feels the truth inside. His Reflections After Midnight is a collection of his words of wisdom, the result of hearing and living them, following a lifetime of searching that was well worth the journey. Each page contains short, humble reflections that you may consider as guidelines to ponder while navigating the challenging roadmap of life. One of my favorite comments is when the author writes that instead of listening to sermons, we should write our own, and live them. True to his own words, he draws upon his intrapersonal understanding to connect and share these profound ideas that blossomed from his meditations. They will make you think as he writes on the last page, "Joy in the mind, beauty in the eye, and love in the heart spells a good life."
Donald Michael Craig is no Confucius, but his short reflections can certainly motivate you to think and help you transform. His tone is critical, yet calm and wise. Perhaps this is intentional as he pours out his thoughts at a time when idealism, confusion, and self-interest clash. He asks if it is wise to populate Mars when we have yet to civilize Earth, and whether it would be better to solve our problems here before sending our hang-ups there. While he maintains a critical stance, he doesn’t delve too deeply into the negative, being more focused on reminding us to develop our character, both in words and actions. Reading Reflections After Midnight is a mind-altering experience, and it is sure to encourage you to jot down your insights.
