The Soul Searcher Follow your (book) bliss. Pondering the mysteries of the self and the cosmos is your M.O. Reading, for you, is a form of soul retrieval, and books lead you on a mythic quest to discover who you are. You follow your bliss from one book to another, never forgetting that it’s about the journey, not the destination.
There are many methods of self-exploration, but for you, books have always been the key to unlocking the great mystery of who you are.
Since as early as you can remember, you’ve built forts and read books by flashlight, transporting yourself to other worlds. Even now, you’re an introvert at heart and your preferred way to spend a Sunday morning is in your favorite nook with a cup of tea, embarking on an inner journey with your current read.
Whether you’re reading an existential novel or a metaphysical manifesto, unlocking the great mystery of who you are is what drives you. Reading, for you, is a form of soul retrieval, and books lead you on a mythic quest to discover new parts of yourself. You follow your bliss from one book to another, never forgetting that it’s about the journey, not the destination.
You discovered the power of the present moment with Eckhart Tolle, you lost (and found) yourself in The Luminaries, you befriended your shadows with Sylvia Plath, and you were awed by Autobiography of a Yogi. But the truth is that it doesn’t really matter what book is in your hand—or what its lessons might be. It’s the joy of discovery—searching for buried treasure in yellowed pages and illuminating words—that keeps you coming back for more.
