9781418476199: PHYSICIAN OF THE SOUL: Exploring the mystical meaning of the life of DR. ALBERT SCHWEITZER: Letters from a Journal

I devoted years to the study of the teachings of one of the world's great humanitarians, the medical missionary, theologian, philosopher, organist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Dr. Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965).I thought about his life and pondered over his statements, such as: "When you portray me it should be not as the doctor who ministered to the sick. It is my philosophy of 'Reverence for Life' that I consider my primary contribution to the world", and "Will we be able again to entertain and exercise ideals which transform reality? This is the question before us today." I found that his words are as valid today, as when he spoke them. In 'Physician of the Soul', I used letters I had addressed the 'Man of the Century', Albert Schweitzer. I used this format as a process to describe the changes in consciousness occurring as I proceed with my quest for growth, truth and understanding.I describe my childhood and my experience of marriage and divorce, to my mentor and teacher, who had become my ideal of what a human being is capable of becoming. I address the subjects of meditation, reincarnation, karma, intuition, responsibility, purpose and how they relate to our destiny. By pressing beyond the limitations of thoughts, often born of doubt, ignorance and fear, I discovered that I am a soul growing through every experience. Life is the journey, leading us to the path, not only of self-discovery, but a journey of remembrances. I talk to my teacher about the truth I discovered, that life itself is my teacher. Looking at myself has been the most painful, and at the same time, the most liberating experience of my life. I also found that comparison to someone else causes pain, suffering and unhappiness. I present the reader with the opportunity to undertake his or her own courageous journey towards liberation and self-healing, as "Know Thyself" becomes the quest.In letters to Dr. Schweitzer, I attempt to address the biggest mystery since the question "Who am I" was first

About the Author:

The author was born in post-war Germany. At the age of 12, she and her mother emigrated to Canada, where she later married and raised a family. A successful career in real estate followed. In 1984 during a period of turmoil and inner struggle she started searching. She began her spiritual quest by immersing herself in the study of religion and philosophy. She became fascinated by the spiritual philosophy of one of the world's greatest thinkers, the philosopher and humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer. She was intrigued by his philosophy of 'Reverence for Life' and his statement: "I have made my life my argument." Her quest for freedom and a keen sense of curiosity led her to search for truth in metaphysics and the Ageless Wisdom Teachings. She has written 3 children's books, two books of poetry and articles for spiritual magazines. She has lectured about the life and writings of Dr. Schweitzer and is leading discussion groups based on the works and teachings of other spiritual teachers including: J. Krishnamurti, Don Miguel Ruiz, Rudolf Steiner, Mabel Collins and others. In the introduction to her current book she admits that looking at her self has been the most painful and yet, the most liberation experience of her life: "My best and most formative schooling, seen only in hindsight, has been life and the many experiences that were presented to me on my path. 'Know thyself...' is the message, the path and the way."
