John ODonohue  9 review Download Û E-book, or Kindle E-pub  John ODonohue Divine Beauty The Invisible Embrace Read & Download õ 109 In this eagerly awaited follow up to his international bestsellers Anam Cara and Eternal Echoes John O'Donohue turns his attention to the subject of beauty the divine beauty that calls the imagination and awakens all that is noble in the human heartIn these uncertain times of global conflict and crisis we are riven with anxiety; our trust in the future has lost its innocence for we know now that anything can happen from one second to the next In such an unsheltered world it may sound naive to suggest that this might be the moment to invoke. The ancient rhythms of the earth have insinuated themselves into the rhythms of the human heart The earth is not outside us it is within the clay from where the tree of the body grows In written form this would perhaps be the kind of book one would read now and then when the mood struck A book to set a mood a book to have you sit a spell and ponder as my grandfather was wont to say This was the first audiobook I bought after I read my goodreads friend Glenn s review sometime last year Since Glenn had mentioned that the author himself had narrated this and the author s charming Irish brogue I had added it as my first audio It didn t take me long to realize that sitting in my house listening to this did not work for me and so I waited patiently for a long drive I didn t really mind having other books to read and sometimes I would just re listen to the beginning of this to remind me of what loveliness lay in store for me So yesterday I left early for a planned excursion to God s Kingdom God s Country to experience some of what nature must have first been intended to pass for beauty What better audio to listen to on my uest for that beauty than to listen to a book about beauty And in truth it was perfect I enjoyed listening to every second of thisThe only negative of listening and driving is not being able to highlight passages but I did not miss a thing at the same time This was lovely spiritual but not in a speaking from the pulpit way this a heart to heart spiritual connection shared on many topics The Music of Beauty The Color of Beauty are two of the ten topics Effortlessly as though you ve just sat down and he s pouring you a spot of tea he manages to transform his thoughts with a lyrical aura of beauty infusing the words as he speaks them Delicious swoon worthy splendid prose prose unveiling images with reverence for the wonder and awe of every day beauty What you encounter recognize or discover depends to a large degree on the uality of your approach Many of the ancient cultures practiced careful rituals of approach An encounter of depth and spirit was preceded by careful preparationWhen we approach with reverence great things decide to approach us Our real life comes to the surface and its light awakens the concealed beauty in things When we walk on the earth with reverence beauty will decide to trust us The rushed heart and arrogant mind lack the gentleness and patience to enter that embrace I would be remiss if I did not thank Glenn for not only pointing me to a book I love but to the wonderful experience of listening to this Magical Glenn s review

This is an author that came Highly recommended to me so now I m waiting to read the book But here s an excerpt from his ReflectionsOnce you start to awaken no one can ever claim you again for the old patterns Now you realise how precious your time here is You are no longer willing to suander your essence on undertakings that do not nourish your true self your patience grows thin with tired talk and dead language You see through the rosters of expectation which promise you safety and the confirmation of your outer identity Now you are impatient for growth willing to put yourself in the way of change You want your work to become an expression of your gift You want your relationship to voyage beyond the pallid frontiers to where the danger of transformation dwells You want your God to be wild and to call you to where your destiny awaitsWith this said I m off to get this book
