11. The Wisdom of Sundays (Oprah Winfrey)

Screen Shot 2018-02-06 at 9.30.47 PMFiguring that I would gain some wisdom from the guests of Oprah’s Super Soul Sundays, I borrowed the compilation of highlights, The Wisdom of Sundays:  Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations, from the library.  While I enjoyed the texture of the cover, the rich pictures and thick pages, I was disappointed to discover less a strong religions focus rather than a more generic spiritual focus.

Now sharing my opinion, I did find some words of wisdom including:

“Over time are negative about someone else, we are actually affecting ourselves.  and the other think that’s important is every time you judge someone else, it’s just a projection of our own self-judgement” (Jack Canfield).

In fairness, the book does have some helpful ideas from spiritual thought leaders (some that I recall after returning the book are Cheryl Strayed, Elizabeth Giller, Deepak Chopra and Shonda Rhymes).  I am sure that it has been a bestseller as the knowledge is pulled together from Oprah’s interviews.  Perhaps the podcasts are more helpful than the snippets in a book.
