Reading is Spiritual

Reading is my new spiritual practice. It takes me far away from my everyday worries and concerns and elevates my thinking about a variety of ideas.

I am suddenly focused on something outside my narrow world while the story and the characters connect me to a larger sense of humanity.

I have a favorite reading place in the living room where the light is perfectly aligned and my body is enveloped easily into the coach.

The moment I sit down with my book and my teacup, I expect euphoria.

The luxury of reading is a luxury that freedom and fantasy provide.

The next book is already in my hands and it will gradually, but undoubtedly, open my heart to a new reality.
