Spirituality is a broad concept, and there are many interpretations as to what it really is and what it means for us. Most would describe spirituality as the reason for their belief and why their life has meaning. What does spirituality even mean, and what does it do to our lives? Especially in modern times, the latest issues and viral videos get more traction than discussions that may improve our lives in the most meaningful way. Well, one author decides to take the path of teaching about spirituality, providing an in-depth understanding of the topic and what it means to humanity.
Most of us dwell in what spirituality truly means that we just sometimes forget its purpose. Frank Daversa's Spirituality in the 21st Century encourages readers to confront their problems with their spirituality by taking a down-to-earth approach that allows for an understanding of the basics. It offers a direct assessment of spirituality as it exists today and examines concepts that defy common knowledge, revolutionizing the way we approach our spirituality. However, it is up to the reader to decide whether they represent truth or fiction. Still, Daversa's comprehensive text does not dwell too much on scare tactics that most religion and spirituality books take but rather takes the readers on a learning path. One that will allow them to see more than the surface. In his book, Daversa includes the five principles of spiritual enlightenment, spiritual paths and meanings, the three spiritual lessons that humanity has to learn, and ways to experience oneness.
What makes the book unique is that the author doesn't mix and mince his words to get to the point. There is no sugarcoating and just gives the readers a frank but loving perspective about spirituality and its meaning for the world today. Daversa's narrative is not one that intends to put pressure, but its loving and fatherly tone encourages the readers to seek the truth of their spirituality for themselves, to not only find their lost meaning but also establish their purpose in life. Each chapter provides the readers the tools to recognize what they can do to begin healing and nurturing their spirits. Daversa's broad knowledge makes the book even more fulfilling as it imparts wisdom, philosophy, new spiritual truths, and practices. After all, spirituality is not just a fictional concept, but it is one that connects us to something bigger than ourselves. Discussing such topics will help us understand the world more, change our perspectives, and makes us ponder the real truths of the world.
