In wonderful poetic language, this teaches us that you are you and the mere desire to be something that you aren't is the primary cause of unhappiness. Though you'll have to read it to understand since this review does not do justice to the fine qualities of this book, it is incredibly insightful and inspiring. Some of what the author says about consciousness and human nature in this book overlaps with some of the stuff in 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato, which, by the way, is another completely awesome book. Sato's excellent book is more theoretical and dense in psychological content. Mountain Dreamer's book discusses these things in a more beautiful and poetic way. I'd recommend both books highly though.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A comforting reminder...
At a time in which the world around us seems to become more superficial and filled with false hope, this book reminds us that having flaws is normal, and that in the end what we really owe ourselves is to be honest in how we act and feel. To read Oriah is like taking a deep breath of fresh air.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
