The Magical Path

What if there was a portable tool kit filled with easy to use ideas, ancient concepts that seem fresh, tried and true doorways into what you dream and desire?  Would you think it was too good to be true?  If you are like most people who were raised in an environment or culture that bred fear and thoughts of lack and limitation, then the answer would be “Likely.”…and yet, there is hope for you. Take a step on The Magical Path-Creating The Life of Your Dreams and A World That Works For All written by the prolific bestselling author Marc Allen. I felt invited into its pages from the moment I cast eyes upon the glowing sunrise cover of a person standing at the peak of a road, gazing back from whence he/she came. That is the journey we are all on and the road which we all traverse. Now, the trick is, do we stop when things feel challenging, turn back or move forward? Allen, who in 1977 founded New World Library (along with Shakti Gawain), a mover and shaker in the publishing industry, penned this book as a result of his own meandering path. He clearly practices what he preaches and is willing to divulge his own pitfalls and perils and reveals the depths and heights he rode to get to the place he now stands, ready to take others along for their own personal ride.

Allen encourages a multi-modal approach to life change which includes breathing and meditation, goal setting, affirmation, journaling, creating a treasure map/vision board, using our dreams as guides, reading inspiring literature, prayer, as well as  collecting and using motivational quotes.

One of many aspects of this book that is so appealing is that when we create a new reality and manna-fest our personal desires, it is not for ourselves alone that we do this. Allen repeatedly speaks about the importance of the highest good being served. He believes in win-win scenarios, rather than a world in which competition reigns supreme.

Allen finds his own inspiration from various sources as quotes from Eckhart Tolle, Jesus, Margaret Meade, Patanjali, Ramana Maharshi, Albert Einstein, Ernest Holmes, The Buddha and Ella Wheeler Wilcox are liberally scattered throughout the pages, just waiting to be gathered up by the reader as if they were bunches of wildflowers.

The book can be read page by page in order, or opened at random and voila!  the appropriate concept will jump out at the reader, perhaps responding to an inquiry or on a topic that was just being pondered. It was certainly the case for this reviewer, as on several occasions, the subject that had been crossing my mind was right there in black and white, just daring exploration. Allen speaks about the importance of repetition as reinforcement. This material is sticky stuff that will remain with you long after the last page is read and the book is put on a shelf. Likely, it will be pulled off over and over as a resource for life transformation.
