Lifting The Wheel of Karma by: Paul H. Magid Review


Title: Lifting The Wheel of Karma
Author: Paul H. Magid
Publisher: Point Dume Press
Pages: 192

Description:

Joseph Connell is a gifted high school athlete from Montana, loved deeply by his family, yet tormented by nightmarish visions he can neither explain nor escape. 

He believes the answer to what threatens to crush him can be found in the knowledge possessed by a mystical old wise man, who lives deep within the remote Himalayas of India. 

If Joseph is ever to find the peace he so desperately seeks, he must get this wise old man to reveal what he truly knows, but that will not be easy…for this sage knows far more than he admits


My Review:

Oh my gosh what a great book.  It’s the story of Joseph Connell who has a terrible car accident and by the wheel of fate ends up encountering Lahiri and old Hindu man who has met Joesph before in a different lifetime.  Joseph become greatly injured seeks out the Old wise man to work mind over matter to walk again.

Joesph learns along the way to love and forgive those even when they have wronged you, and to appreciate all you have in life, as it can be cut short.

The writing style and description really made you feel like you were there in Montana and again in India.  Made me want to watch Gandhi again.  I just loved the relationship between Lahiri and Joesph, and Joesph with his brother Billy.

Definitely an author I will be on the look to work with again and to read his wonderful words again.
