In 2003, I began to grow some interest in spirituality and meditation. Before, I was a heavily religious person, a devoted Muslim, who paid close attention to the ceremonial aspects of my belief. Additionally, I was really into philosophy and critical thinking.
I became a bookworm to fulfill my soul’s thirst for knowledge. For several years, I had purchased 3 to 4 books every month; hence, my collection grew into hundreds. However, among those I completed, the most unforgettable were The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, Robbin Sharma’s series of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, and The Book of Mirdad by Michael Naimy.
Though reading piles of books had yet enlightened me, I was savvy about spirituality. Moreover, understanding spiritual, technical terms has enabled me to put my authentic spiritual experience into words later.
