I suspect most people today would not imagine that they have much in common with a Christian saint who lived over 1500 years ago Remarkably enough however if they read this book I think they d find much to relate to just as I did The Confessions is the famous autobiography of St Augustine of Hippo a North African saint It is in part his life story but to me it is really his spiritual biography It is in effect a long letter from himself directed towards God explaining his path towards the divine It is the story of how Augustine went from a sinner someone who in his own words had a restless soul and disordered mind into the realm of divine knowledge and awareness It is a familiar story to anyone who has read Ibn Arabi al Ghazali or any other individuals who have counseled taking what is often referred to as the spiritual pathWhat was most notable to me about the book were how normal St Augustine and his thoughts seem by today s standards He did not want to surrender his bad habits and he did not want to be ridiculed for believing something that he d incorrectly assumed was ridiculous He wanted real knowledge and the company of his beloved friends and family He loved his mother and he wanted to do what was right in his life a life that he knew was inherently transient The book describes the process of his spiritual awakening likening it at one part to the resistance one feels to waking up in the morning and the efforts we take to remain asleep even when we know we must get up He describes the components of existence as being like the words of a sentence with one dying so the other can live and none but the highest intellect able to see the meaning of the entire sentence His heart desires to come to a place of rest rather than being in endless search for a thing that our minds cannot name The prose is beautifulThis is a book that deserves to be described as timeless because it deals with the core issues of the human condition who we are why we are here and what we must do to be enlightened peaceful and successful It is also an advised read for those who incorrectly believe that Christianity is a superficial or intellectually unstimulating religion This could not be further from the truth To me St Augustine was another Ibn Arabi an earnest seeker of the truth who found his riches by looking within As long as human beings still exist this book has something very important to say to them
