Review of “The Guru’s Gift.”
The Guru’s Gift Book Reviews : Based on AMAZON 5 STAR reviews:
John B. Rooke – Excellent Insights. January 19, 2014 Verified Purchase:
– an exhaustive account of her roller-coaster emotional journey and, more specifically, of how her personal relationships and self-identity were impacted by the upward passage of the energy
– intuitive and objective analyses on what forces were at work in laying the foundations of her spiritual experience, including past life insights and early childhood influences
For its ease of reading, its thoroughness and its numerous cross-references, this book has a richness and depth not dissimilar to that of Bonnie Greenwell’s “Energies of Transformation” albeit that its primary focus is on the unique experiences of the author.
In summary, congratulations on a brilliant book – this is another treasure for my Kundalini library!!
It was a great pleasure to read this book that Ruth has written about Kundalini. Though she speaks about her own experiences, she also weaves in others’ experiences and references that give so much depth.
I had to keep reading; it was as if the book kept unfolding bits and pieces of information that had been omitted from so many other books written on this subject. It fills in missing links and connections that make it coherent and flowing.
She makes Kundalini come alive and transmits a feeling of familiarity with this rare spiritual experience, but, at the same time, we feel it is very sacred.
There is something in this book for everyone to relate to whether they are ready or not for this spiritual journey.
The story is personal, yet, at the same time, it is holistic and encompassing; it moves with a rhythm that is like the Kundalini force, taking the reader out beyond the mundane into the complex spiritual realms then bringing us back into the known. Ruth shares her knowledge in a way that is compassionate, grounding and deeply informative.
I am very happy to know that this sacred journey will be given to the public, and that Ruth has so bravely opened her heart to share this with us.
I enjoyed especially the fact that this is no dry factual analysis or repetition of old outworn phrases about Kundalini by past authors but rather a fresh new approach to describing accurately one’s personal experience and opening the door to the reader’s interest in pursuing Kundalini further in daily practice.
