With March being the month of turnaround, when we consciously tap into the power of the trinity for maximum transformation, I decided to go with Leave Your Nets by Joel S. Goldsmith for the March Book Club selection. I LOVE this book and just about everything by Goldsmith. He’s one of the great spiritual teachers and healers of the 20th Century. Some of the great spiritual teachers of the 1900s shared ideas and taught concepts, but did not actually apply them.

Meaning, they wrote x number of books, gave workshops and spoke all over the world but did not directly practice spiritual healing. Joel is one of the greats who did both. He wrote and taught about healing, he also served for many years as a spiritual healer. He was most certainly a mystic in that his direct connection with God inspired the living faith that he embodied. I love how in his autobiography he talks about not knowing what he would say before a talk, multi-day retreat or radio program only to begin to receive the words in the moment LIVE… like as he touched the microphone! We have that in common plus he gets extra love because, well, he was a New Yorker, just like me!

I’m not quite sure how many of you got it poppin’ with Autobiography of A Yogi last month… as literally not one single soul commented on that post. There was a couple who reached out to me by email to let me know that they were going to re-read it as well, but that was it. (Basically, all I heard was the sound of crickets out in the blogosphere! LOL.) I started rereading it as well, but then somehow put it down midway through to dig into several business books and some of my favorite Emma Curtis Hopkins writings. I guess I got what I needed from it during the times that I read it. I will likely work my way through that one throughout the year.

As for Leave Your Nets, I have a much different energy around it. I could read this one hundred times and never get tired of it. I KNOW you’ll enjoy it! “To achieve the ability to live and work here and now with a constant sense of peace and with greater efficiency is the aim of this powerful book,” it says on the back cover. So for those of you who are willing to explore “a new, spiritually fulfilling and enlightened world in which all beings are at inner peace with themselves and at one with God,” let’s read Leave Your Nets this month. Share your thoughts and experiences with the book right here on the blog. Feel free to tweet me about it, cuz I be getting my tweet on! #ShawnaMarie

Do you love reading great books? Are you especially drawn to reading books that will inspire you and empower you? What about having conversations online with others who are reading these books, too?  Does participating in an online book club like this sound interesting to you? GOOD!

I have great news for all of the souls who have ever so patiently inquired about the status of the book club that I announced.

Yes! Yes! Yes! The book club will be active and much more interactive!

After reflecting as to how best to utilize technology for the book club going forward it became clear to me that we need to have a home base as well as a viable structure and a plan. I decided to dedicate the Living In Spiritual Perspective blog (here) to serve as the home base for the book club. This way anyone can come here to see the book of the month, see the questions I’ve posed for consideration, comment and also review the thoughts and comments of others.

Now that I’m  more familiar with the blog platform as well as the new facebook and twitter, this seems like the best plan. We can still use facebook to and twitter to continue the conversations that start here. We may even have scheduled LIVE tweetups and facebook discussions if that’s what you’d like. I figured it best to start with the basic structure and plan that is workable. We can always add on more if/as we’re inspired. Being that I AM a twitterhead, I will certainly be tweeting using #HTCBookClub throughout the month. You all can, too.

How does that sound? I  do not want to make any assumptions as to what you all like and want. That being said, please take a moment to share your thoughts in the comments. Are you interested in following along each month for a book recommendation and then commenting here with the online community? Would you be interested in having LIVE scheduled tweetups and/or facebook discussions? Do you even use facebook? If so, would you join a facebook group for HTCBookClub  and engage in dialogue there? Do you tweet and/or prefer to have a scheduled tweetup each month using #HTCBookClub? Holler!
