Books You Gotta Read

Where Buddha Meets Business

Inspiring Heart Opening Poems by Mary Burnett Brown

Since I started this book blog two months ago, I’ve been focusing on reviewing a combination of business, and mindset books I love, as also spiritual and the law of attraction type books that I also love.

I truly believe that we are spiritual beings living a human experience. And because we are human, we need to learn how to straddle those two worlds. What interests me the most is how it took more than 35 years of my life just to “wake up” to the fact that I was a spiritual being.

It took a very special person I let in and totally honest with her and me. Her name is Debbie Phillips. She was my executive coach for over ten years. She showed me how to connect to my spiritual side through meditation, self-care, and many other ways. She also helped me open up to realize I was basically sleepwalking through my life. I was using alcohol, being in emotionally abusive relationships, unfulfilling jobs, and on and on…

What I love the most – Debbie is still in my life today! I’m still getting all the inspiration, strategies, and support, not just from her but from the amazing group of women she brought together. She is the founder of Women On Fire.

Let me introduce you to one of these inspiring Women On Fire- Mary Burnett Brown. She’s the author of a brand new book – The Book of Divine Love: Heart Opening Poems. This book is an inspiring example of how, when you open up your heart, be vulnerable, and connect to your higher power, true magic happens.

My favorite poem is the first one in the book – “The Calling.” It truly speaks to me because it’s the journey I’m on right now. I’ve just finished a very soulful exercise connecting to my soul’s purpose. Making a list of all my skills and picking out the top 5. Then meditating and connecting to my new mission and vision for the next phase of my business.

To me, this poem is so perfect for where I am. Its message speaks to me not to ignore my calling, and to really connect with my heart, passion, and my truth. It’s in that beautiful space that joy and magic are born.

Thank you, Mary, for your beautiful words that are true guides to this heart-opening journey of life. I’m thrilled to be traveling with you!
