Summary

Summary

Walking across shards of glass - breaking arrows with your throat - firewalking, Tolly Burkan shares the secrets of why people engage in these extreme practices and how, even if we only read about them, they can be spiritually educational. Through reading about over 20 of these practices, readers learn how even unpleasant or dangerous situations can help us experience love, wisdom and compassion. The interconnections we then make reveal aspects of our divine nature and leave us with a crystal clear distinction between our egos and our higher-selves. This book, using many different examples, uses a logical and enthusiastic approach to teach people how to assume a totally spiritual perspective in any situation. By doing this, even sorrowful or frustrating situations are diminished in their power to cause suffering. We can choose our reactions to them and use them as insights for spiritual growth.
