The world is just beginning to recover from a long pandemic, but during this time, many of our values and our ways of thinking have been questioned due to the exceptional circumstances that all of us, globally, have found ourselves experiencing. Finding one's balance in the post-pandemic "new era" is difficult, especially for those who do not have the necessary training to analyze the situation on a deeper level. In The Seven Songs: Tales of Will the Teacher, Chris Steed starts from this premise to reflect on seven fundamental themes, inviting us to reflect on them through the experience and words of the protagonist of this book, Will the Teacher.
The Seven Songs is a book that I liked very much because it has come at the right time to deliver its message. I, too, have reflected a lot on the issues that Steed analyzes. However, here there is much more wisdom and depth of thought. What I find extremely valuable about The Seven Songs is that it does not just tell a story. On the contrary, I believe it can help the persons who read it in this post-pandemic era. It will help them to have a clearer vision of what it means to be a human being in times like these. A question at the beginning of The Seven Songs guided me through the entire book: "How do you put life together?" I think that after reading this book, the reader will find an answer and benefit from it. I recommend The Seven Songs to anyone who likes to meditate on what they read.
