So, the 10th question is “Religious or spirituality teachings could be misleading. What is your advice to readers new to these two genres?”
1) Author #1 : Todd Johnson
What to say or how to say it in a way to catch people’s attention.
I think it is important to underline that spiritual science is not a basis for a new religion. It is the basis for a merger of science and spirituality.
3) Author #3: Sandra Lott
To always judge everything by the Word of God, as God tells us to do.
4) Author #4: Sharon Farber
Trust in yourself. Accept what resonates as true for you. Make your own decisions about your life and spirituality.
5) Author #5: Mitch Gannon
To follow their heart. See what book resonates with them. And take what you found helpful and healing from the book and leave the rest.
6) Author #6: Hemal Radia
Read something and check how it feels with you… read much more and build a balanced perspective that resonates with you. Some material may speak to you on multiple levels and make more sense later. That was the case with my book. I wrote it such that people would have an understanding at first and then upon subsequent readings could understand the material on multiple levels.
7) Author #7: Brina Tharishinee
This is a very abstract question! Haha Anyways, dear readers (new to these two genres), look at the book as an additional reading material and to arrive to any conclusion or to accept any ideas projected from the books, maybe you should consult the religious priests/teachers you know to validate things you’ve read. Some books can be very misleading as I’ve been subjected to one such situation before!
8) Author #8: Barry Rice
Is the reader’s interest in beginning a religious or spiritual book or attendance at a speaking event motivated by what may be going on in their life at the time (death in family, financial worries, divorce, etc,) or could it be a general curiosity to learn more? I would advise potential readers of the genre to find a book/speech where the title creates curiosity, where the inside/back cover or speech summary provides a brief overview that stirs the desire to learn more. Does the summary provide enough insight that may guide the reader to understanding that any problem(s) they are facing in life may be answered via religious or spiritual teachings.
9) Author #9: Chris Batts
The majority of the stories you hear about people with spiritual experiences are true. It’s a lot of fun to learn about the spiritual world we have no idea about. Have a very open mind. Don’t be closed minded, and have fun with the journey.
10) Author #10: Syl Sabastian
Figure it out for yourself. Take what’s presented and Think-it-Through, To-the-End! Do not accept anything on belief or faith alone, unless you absolutely have to. If it doesn’t Make Sense to YOU, then it will never be a Spirituality you will actually be able to practice.
11) Author #11: Donald Smith
There is going to be doubters and naysayers until they experience a life changing event or circumstance in there lives, they will be dealt with by God when the time is right. Don’t let them discourage you
