Very interesting
21 March 2015 | by (Minnesota, United States) – See all my reviews

I read the book before seeing the mini series. It followed the book accurately and was helped by having Shirley as herself. It made it more believable. I read all the IMDb user reviews of this and they are all valid.

For me it really touched me as I was exploring my own questions about the meaning of life. This just seemed to help put all my jumbled thoughts into place. This kind of new age philosophy is the one that sits most comfortably in my head. After seeing this and reading other books I have undoubtedly become more spiritual - not religious!!! I look at life and the world with different eyes now. It doesn't give you all the answers. As most people who have traveled the path that I have in their spiritual awakening, there are more questions than answers - but isn't that what life as we know it is all about? Without the questions, there is no evolution. Once we know everything, then life as we know it is meaningless. If you're reading this then you are obviously on your path too - good luck!!! I highly recommend this mini-series - or the book. They are both the same!
