Book review by Dana Taylor
“Humanity is not a random accident. There is a reason we are here, and each one of us has a purpose in life that we have come to fulfill, a reason and a purpose which we planned prior to incarnating. We are much more than our physical body; we are eternal souls incarnated in a body.” Roser Sagarra
As I read Roser Sagarra’s book Living on Earth: A Guide to Help You Achieve Health, Happiness and Success, I pictured myself back around 1970. If only some time traveler had popped in and handed me this book, it would have saved me a whole lot of time and effort. The coming trends of the next decades would have been clear. The best books to read regarding spirituality, consciousness, the law of attraction, energy healing, alternative medicine, even pre-life planning and past life therapy are all laid out.
Sagarra compresses a lifetime of searching and exploration into a concise organization of the mind-body-spirit consciousness movement of the past several decades. She touches on spirituality, without being religious. Like many, she has embraced Eastern ideas of karma, reincarnation, and laws of creation and translates them for a Western culture.
Information on health and healing reflect the movement away from old thinking of the body as a machine into the awareness of the energetic nature of human beings. She gives a concise overview of the trends of alternative therapies and the influence of emotions and stress on health.
At the end of every chapter, Sagarra recommends books to expand comprehension of the topics discussed. Time and again, I realized I had gravitated to the same books through the years. Like Sagarra, those books and their ideas changed and enriched my life.
As the subtitle suggests, Living on Earth is a straightforward guide to leading a healthy, happy, and successful life in the 21st century.
