Let me be honest: I read through this book twice, and it's not an easy read. In fact, I am still struggling through it so much that I'm finding it difficult to review. That being said, there is a lot of spiritual wisdom to be found here, if you are willing to take your time and follow the journaling prompts at the back. Anyone can benefit from this book, regardless of religious or spiritual beliefs. The truths that Delurgio highlights in this book are universal and will help you to know yourself better.
Throughout the book, there is an ongoing dialogue between Wisdom, which has an unknown source, and our mind, which has been programmed by cultural and societal influences. While there is a lot of metaphor and meaning behind these dialogues, they sometimes come across as being nothing more than New Age mumbo jumbo. When Delurgio writes in a more straightforward style, her message is more accessible.
And her message is pretty basic: there was a time when our minds were unencumbered by the human experience, when everything we saw was new. In order to accomplish spiritual growth, we must try to remember what it was like to experience things this way. This will allow us to open our hearts and see ourselves for who we really are - the essence of our spirit and our relationship with the presence of life.
The format of the book allows for note-taking throughout. Delurgio's text is only on the odd-numbered pages, while the even-numbered pages are left blank throughout. This makes it pretty easy to do the journaling exercises within the book, although additional pages might be necessary.
This is certainly not the book for you if you want something for light reading. But if you are someone who wants to explore your spirituality, Our Journey to the Sky is a good springboard for writing and discussion.
