I recently re-read one of my favorite books, Infinite Self by Stuart Wilde and after this read, I think it might be my favorite non-fiction book of all time. It’s simply amazing.
Without being preachy or telling the reader “what they need to do” to have a better life, he simply presents the world as it truly is (totally messed up) and he also talks about people’s thought patterns and reactions in a way that is so easy to grasp, you’ll read the words and then you’ll think he knows the people in your social circle.
Stuart Wilde is not one of those spiritual writers where you feel like you’d have to live in a monastery and meditate for the rest of your life to even be half as “with it” as him. Instead, his writing style is like going into a bar and sitting next to some guy that ends up telling you all this cool stuff in a way that makes total sense. In addition, as you are learning new things, you’ll laugh all along the way. The same cannot be said for many other books of this nature.
The book has 33 steps to reclaim your inner power and truly, as you read it, if you practice some of the things he discusses (some are easy, some are hard), you’ll find that your life will change for the better. Unlike other “gurus,” Stuart Wilde encourages you to throw the book in the trash if you think he’s full of it.
He writes a blog, but it can be seen as being off the deep end if you are not familiar with basic spiritual principles. I view it, instead, that it might be hard to understand because the guy has traveled around the world over 80 times and his level of “getting it” is far superior to most people on this planet.
I’m Wilde about this book and I hope you will be too when you read it!
