The Great Work of your Life
I have read quite a few ‘life purpose’ books in my life. And every now and again I feel the need to read another one. Because purpose is not ONE thing you find and then it stays with you forever, it’s not linear. So over time, when I feel off kilter, the Universe sends me a sign. And that sign came through yet another dear friend who had just read this one and called it ‘eye-opening’. Since that friend and I are very alike and seem to go through the same motions at the same times in our lives, I grabbed this one of course! The author basis his book on a two-thousand-year-old spiritual classic called the Bhagavad Gita—an ancient allegory about the path to dharma, told through a timeless dialogue between the fabled archer, Arjuna, and his divine mentor, Krishna. Now this might sound boring, but Cope manages to keep you going by telling you stories about well-known figures such as Jane Goodall, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony and John Keats, but also about people who are not famous at all, to show you that we all are on the same path.
So if you’re lost right now for whatever reason, this book may offer the guide that you are looking for.
