wisdom books for 2020.

Every year, I immerse myself in the self-help section of my favorite neighborhood bookstore and buy anything and everything that calls to me from its shelf. If this sounds a little woo-woo, let’s just be honest: I choose a book by its cover.

Every year, these books lay in wait in my “ready to read” stack until the exact right day when I need to hear what’s inside. I’m not exaggerating. I’ll pick up a book one morning in January, decide it’s boring… and put it back until June. The second time around, I won’t be able to put it down. Every sentence on every page is a little golden nugget of wisdom.

I believe that wisdom is always waiting to be revealed when I am ready to receive its message.

In Yoga Philosophy, wisdom is called Ishwara. This iteration of wisdom is a collective, omnipresent, creative source of highest Truth and Light that all humans have direct access to through both intuition and dedicated study. It is also described as an inner knowing that incites reverence toward life. Ishwara reveals itself when when we are ready to learn.
