Do you lead a busy life? Have you lost a loved one? Have you felt alone? In the hectic pace of life, we are often too busy running after our to-do lists to fully appreciate the journey. But if we don't look around, we'll lose our loved ones without noticing. Life has aptly been referred to as a 'rat race' and the pace is often beyond our ability to keep up. While we are running, our loved ones will die. They will no longer flank us in the race. During these difficult times, we may be distracted that someone has providentially dropped out of the race. People we admire will fall by the wayside. Mentors and role models will disappoint us. Those we trust may prove unworthy of our trust. Sometimes we lose sight of the goal-yet we must keep running. For the Christian the prize is the spiritual rewards both in this life and the life to come. Author Ife Ayodele has written Spiritual Wisdom for Modern Times to empower us with the necessary spiritual insights and tools to overcome the difficult transition points we must confront to successfully win the race.

Extraordinary Freedom is an approachable and straightforward invitation to open to life, to inquire within, and to go beyond confusion and live in the light of awareness. Although the book isn’t filled with the esoteric language of the Buddhist tradition, it has the depth of this powerful wisdom tradition. By becoming conscious of our inner world, our habits, beliefs, neurosis, and attachments there is an opportunity to see their empty nature and in doing so transform our lives. The wisdom we need is already within us, it is who we are. By living in awareness and gaining insight we discover this for ourselves. In order to reveal this wisdom in our consciousness we need to try on a new way of seeing and relating to life and all the conditions it presents, then the extraordinariness of who we are can reveal itself and the chains that bind us to old hardened views will break. We can experience extraordinary freedom moment by moment, embracing all that life offers. “Many people need a book like this which is simple in its language and profound in its meaning.” Anam Thubten
