Book Review: Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss



 Information comes to you at the right time. There is no need to have FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). Over the past couple of years, I have come to believe in this statement strongly. And my experiences are reinforcing the truth behind this statement.

Sometime around 2004-05, one of my senior colleagues and I were discussing past lives, life after death, etc. She said to me, "I'm gonna give you a book, which I found to be very interesting. Give it a read over the weekend. But I want you to return it on Monday". I obliged and borrowed the book from her on a Friday evening. For some reason, I couldn't connect with the material and I was prioritizing other activities that weekend. I didn't go past the first two chapters and I returned the book to her on Monday, saying it was too heavy for me to absorb.

A few days back, a friend and I were having a conversation on a similar topic. She didn't mention this book though. The title of this book came up in another WhatsApp group conversation. I randomly checked my home library and I was pleasantly surprised to find this book. Seems my husband had bought it a few years back and he hasn't read it either.

For the past two days, I was completely hooked onto "Many Lives Many Masters" by
Dr Brian Weiss and found it to be such a fascinating read. At many times, I paused, underlined a few sentences, bracketed a few passages, and felt so impacted by the underlying message.

The book talks about the conversations between a psychiatrist and his patient, the hypnotherapy sessions, and the messages revealed during these sessions on past births and time between births. Reading without any expectations and keeping an open mind helps to absorb and appreciate the message shared. Whether you are a believer or not of rebirths/reincarnations, there are quite a few lessons that talk about leading a complete and contented life.

A few passages that I loved

The very first paragraph

"There is a reason for everything. Perhaps at the moment that an event occurs we have neither the insight nor the foresight to comprehend the reason, but with time and patience it will come to light"
"People are born with talents, abilities and powers accrued from other lifetimes" => Does this remind you of the movie Ezhaam Arivu? 🙂
"What is revealed to me is what is important to me, what concerns me"
"We choose when we will come into our physical state and when we will leave. We know when we have accomplished what we were sent down here to accomplish. We know when the time is up and you will accept your death"
"Our body is just a vehicle for us while we are here. It is our soul and our spirit that last forever"
"There is too much black or white thinking. All or none. This is not the way of nature."
If this information is important to you, I'm sure this book would come to you in some way or the other :-)
