I decided to write my blog today about a book I finished yesterday that astounded me. I read Out On A Limb by Shirley MacLaine. Did I get a surprise. I was expecting a bizarre, far out story. The book was an easy to read and understand in her struggle to find spirituality.
Being a spirit filled Christian I also thought she would have things to say that wouldn’t set well with me. That wasn’t the case either. My understanding of what she wrote is we are the divine, spiritual, power. Since we are the body of Christ would that make us divine in nature? Every power that Christ demonstrated, we can have; when we reach his level of spirituality.
I was interested in her idea of reincarnation. We will live again, and I know the Bible says we will live again with Jesus. She believes that the human soul keeps coming back until he or she gets things right here on earth. The more understanding and giving of yourself, you are the quicker you will be staying on the other side. Bad folks are doomed to keep repeating their
life over and over until they change. Maybe that is where the term hell on earth comes in. That was my thought not hers.
She is a woman who struggled to discover who she was supposed to be. It took her years to come to terms with her life. She studied while she traveled around the world searching for understanding. This was all in-between her show business dates.
I would recommend this book just to give you an insight into another’s thinking about spirituality.
