*Received from Netgalley for my unbiased review*
I know I have an amazing book on my hands when I just can’t stop highlighting enlightening words and anecdotes. Kamaria G. Powell’s words feel as if they are bubbling from a pot of sincerity and love, as if a sister is trying to encourage you in your darkest hour.
WTF is Enlightenment is a clarion call and book of personal experiences, detailing just what the heck spirituality is and all it can be.
The really cool thing, is that Kamaria does not just tell us what enlightenment is, she reiterates over and over that we “have to embrace our own spirituality” and this can be difficult for many of us because who we are tend to be tied down to religion, passed down teachings, titles and material wealth.
“What I learned from my deep longing to be seen as a spiritual being, was that you don’t need anyone to knight you.”(WTF is Enlightenment, 2017)
How is it that we allow people outside of us to tell us who we are? That is impossible! Whatever the Creator of the universe has given us, was given by Him. If we need to make moves and make a change, we are already equipped to do so.
Kamaria even gives us some background on her own life story. She does not sugarcoat her mom’s mental illness or her dad’s incarceration, and her choosing to see the lessons and the light from that situation will encourage the reader too.
This book is a welcome fresh air that was not difficult to understand at all. As I said before, this book is a clarion call to be who you are. What can be more beautiful than that? Here are a few tidbits from the book that were precious gems to me:
- Listen to patterns in your life.
- You are the access to the Divine- everyone else is a guide.
- Being spiritual does not require a specific text.
- You are an expression of God.
Plus many more affirmations.
“You have the power to start thinking of your life as a science that you must study in order to discover your personal truths…”
After reading this wonderful book, I have become more aware and will definitely heed to the lessons Kamaria points out in the material.
If you’ve ever wanted a guide that was not boastful , yet intelligently and simply written. Please choose this one.
