Granite and Gravity: In This Life, Prepare For the Next is one of those books that will make you think. You’ll close the book and ponder so many possibilities about your life and the paths you take. Is your life pre-ordained by something you have done before, in another life? Alcoholism? Marriage? Strengths, weaknesses? There are many theories about reincarnation and there are many who believe … like a few billion people. Ergo, I’m not too quick to dismiss them all as delusional. This book isn’t intended to create a convert of you … only to make you think.
I started this book with every intent of taking a few days and found myself staying up way too late to finish; the topic was so absorbing. Cliché, but I couldn’t put it down.
Everyone can agree with regard to cause and effect; cause: leave the milk on the counter over night … effect: sour milk. You might want to stretch your mind to grasp that cause may happen in one life, and effect in another.
The book is well written and an entirely different take on reincarnation. No flashbacks, no regression, nor therapists. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but you’ll learn quickly that a ‘counsel of souls’ is a guiding force throughout your journey. You’ll be well entertained by some history of New York, the Brooklyn Bridge. But, the history is incidental to the real story. Granite and Gravity is character driven, and the the characters are well rounded and interesting … souls.
You’ll enjoy the book, regardless of your personal belief.
