About Spiritual Energy
Which line stood out from all the others in the book?
Every painful experience of your life presents you with an opportunity to learn something helpful.
General Summary for Context:
We learn that not only do our bodies contain spiritual energy but that the same is released after death and can exist when we no longer do. However, more importantly, the reader is provided with specific recommendations on how to make the most of our lives while we are on this earth. Once we decide we really and truly want to improve our life, the awareness of and communication with our spiritual energy will help us to open ourselves up to joy and happiness rather than be bogged down by feelings of low self worth and anger at what we don’t have.
Gratitude is the key to appreciating what we have achieved and who we are. Since we are the only ones responsible for our thoughts and emotions, it stands to reason that we can channel and change those emotions to more appropriate self-affirmation ones. Negative emotions lead to stress, the author tells us, which then can develop into ill health and unhappiness. How much more content we would be to instead show kindness to others rather than criticizing their actions and taking it personally when people don’t react exactly as we want them to.
General Thoughts on the Book:
An engaging, informative and eye opening look into the fact that how we act in this life can lead to an unleashing of spiritual energy in a positive way later on. There are general summaries at the conclusion of each chapter which we can review once we finish the book. This book encouraged and enabled me to look at how aspects of my behavior were leading me towards unhappiness rather than the goal of enjoyment of life. I loved the book and recommend it to anyone who feels they want more intrinsic satisfaction in their lives.
I suppose we will never tire of thinking about how life came about and what happens when life ends. The concept of spiritual energy falls somewhat into my own belief system, so I appreciate Mr. Broach taking the opportunity to promote his take on the subject.
Walter E. Broach has written a masterpiece in About Spiritual Energy. There are so many questions concerning life. How life came to be is one of them. What happens when people die is another big one. In this book, the author answers these questions and many more in a way that assures the reader that he knows just what he's saying.
When a woman is pregnant, several things happen right there in her womb. The coming together of cells to form a new life is a wonder. When a baby passes through this stage and is born into the world, it already has character traits, emotions, and even memories. The universe is so vast that where we live is only a tiny part. Yet, there is excellent coordination between all the aspects of the universe. We also see this excellent coordination in the different parts of our bodies. There are energy particles responsible for this coordination. These energy particles are responsible for the universe's formation, our births, our lives, our interactions with other forms of life, and what happens when the physical body no longer moves or breathes. These energy particles prove that there's really no death, but we only exist in different forms.
There's so much intelligence packed into this book. Many books out there claim to have the answers to creation/evolution, life, death, after-life, etc. But this particular book stands out because the author lays out facts backed by research, spirituality, and even religion. For once, there's a meeting point for several theories on life and after-life from diverse sources. It's not perfectly synchronous, but it's not a chaotic dispute like what is usually portrayed. It makes what the author has to say in this book believable.
I love the systematic way the author breaks down what he says. He doesn't try to convince anyone to believe; he states that people will always believe what they want to believe. I find this striking because most authors want to convince readers to believe what they're saying. Nonetheless, his matter-of-fact approach to it tends to make someone believe him. At the end of each chapter, he states the main points, which summarizes what the reader can take away.
Though it's a dicey subject, I enjoyed reading this book. The author wasn't focused on debating his points; he took the time to point out how we could live better and have better results. I see About Spiritual Energy as his way of teaching others what he knows and helping them lead successful lives. There are only a few errors and minor formatting issues. Otherwise, there's nothing to dislike. Therefore, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to philosophers, scientists, theologians, religious leaders, spiritualists, and those who have questions about making something out of life.
