Summary

New York Times Bestseller 
From the New York Times bestselling author of An Altar in the World, Barbara Brown Taylor’s Learning to Walk in the Dark provides a way to find spirituality in those times when we don’t have all the answers. 
Taylor has become increasingly uncomfortable with our tendency to associate all that is good with lightness and all that is evil and dangerous with darkness. Doesn’t God work in the nighttime as well? In Learning to Walk in the Dark, Taylor asks us to put aside our fears and anxieties and to explore all that God has to teach us “in the dark.” She argues that we need to move away from our “solar spirituality” and ease our way into appreciating “lunar spirituality” (since, like the moon, our experience of the light waxes and wanes). Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen. Often, it is while we are in the dark that we grow the most. 
With her characteristic charm and literary wisdom, Taylor is our guide through a spirituality of the nighttime, teaching us how to find our footing in times of uncertainty and giving us strength and hope to face all of life’s challenging moments.

    The secret law of attraction has always existed for thousands of years. It has been included in religious books to promote faith and gain followers but also used by aristocrats and politicians to control people. But this knowledge, however, is part of life and offers a deep insight about the meaning and purpose of existence. Therefore, it’s the intention of this book to show, with a simple and practical approach, how the law of attraction applies to anyone. Here, it’s explained how we always attract what we want or not, as well as the good and the bad, with abilities that have always been available to us and that we surely have used without being fully conscious about them. In trying to build such awareness, the knowledge here presented will allow the reader to finally understand, behind all the mysticism and exaggeration that has been given to this topic, what the secret really is and why it has been kept secret. With this perception, the concept can finally be clear without any need for specific techniques or magic tricks, because the secret is simply the mechanism behind the structure of existence.

    Life is full of ups and downs, successes and failures, love and betrayal, happiness and sadness, victories and losses. Within the turmoil of this journey that life has to offer, there are many lessons to obtain, and the difference in how much we can learn from them will define how well we’ve lived. “A Journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step” (Lao Tzu, Founder of Taoism)
    
     
    In this book it’s explained how we create our reality around us, which laws define it and how can we change everything in order to obtain positive results. It also talks about faith and the importance of it, by sharing stories that allow an understanding regarding the amount of power that a person with a strong faith can achieve. Finally there are also teachings about loving our enemies and the benefits of doing it. 
    
     
    The whole content, with roots in many different religious philosophies, even though based in modern and real life stories, intents to promote a higher conscience in the reader, regarding how much our thoughts and paradigms influence our reality, but, most of all, how powerful we can be when learning to love ourselves and appreciate our life.
