Figuring 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.
