The Wisdom Of Merlin – Bringing Meaning To Your Life
Everyone can use a little wisdom in their life. Where one searches for it, can be difficult to determine. Here’s a good place to start, no matter your age.
The Wisdom of Merlin: 7 Magical Words For A Meaningful Life by New York Times bestselling author, T.A. Barron, is a short read but is full to the brim with big ideas. Short sections regarding the magic words one need consider to find meaning and fulfillment in their life are concise and brief but do not fall short on content.
T.A. Barron has written many books about Merlin, one of the greatest wizards in American literature, and often wondered how Merlin might respond to the age-old question, “What is the meaning of life?” With a new year upon us once again, now is the perfect time (with the holiday hustle and bustle behind us) to be thinking about what we want our lives to look like for the upcoming year, and beyond. One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to get in shape. While most people are talking about their physical bodies when they make that resolution, I submit that making a resolution to overhaul your point of view of life and what it means to you is just as important and deserving of attention.
This book is based on a speech Barron gave at Oxford and is the product of many years of research and writing about the great wizard, Merlin. With fewer than 80 pages, one can read this book in a single sitting or choose to read one section per day. However you choose to experience the wisdom within, I urge you to do so.
Sections focusing on gratitude, courage, knowledge, belief, wonder, generosity, hope and love are presented as simple, easily understood concepts and each section contains a short passage about how Merlin incorporates the concept into his world, along with a description of the word some simple ways to increase your experience with the concept and bring an overall happiness and peace to your daily life.
