This is one of those magical books where you can pick a page at random, and find words that speak straight to the core of your being. Sharif Khan illuminates the complex nature of our psyches with a combination of psychology, mythology, philosophy, spirituality and popular culture. He suggests that the only way we will overcome the overwhelming crises we face as a society, is for individuals to step into their power and show a hero’s courage despite fearful challenges.
There is a holy war being waged in the world, and that is the war inside of us between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. “Heroes are not ‘good’ – they are wise,” Khan states. Our task is to work through our shadow side and attain wisdom. “With wisdom one can see the divinity within every human being and thus have compassion and love for all.”
Sharif Khan’s eloquent passion inspires us to become the hero of our destiny, so that collectively we can lead the way to a new future for us all.
