Allow me admit that reading in my society is a luxury. It is a pastime or some kind of activity reserved for that special group of people. I cannot define them but at the end of this review, we may have a name not the mundane type mentioned in the conversations. My encounter with reading has been from the coursed class, the group that is either manipulated or rewarded or persuaded to read. In that if someone tells me that read and you will get this a lollypop then I would read very fast. I am forming a backdrop of my presentation to enable you appreciate the kind of readers that we are and I know I am not alone especially from this part of the world that I come from. There is no excuse whatsoever it is our grooming and our way of life that has kept us this way. This does not mean we cannot get better; we actually can get better especially with readings like this and with authors that speak to your heart. The Conversation of Venusta are not from another planet, they are REAL with your heart. I faulted you for being so real and then I realised that you are very different, you are at a higher calling in that line... you from another planet. And how did this affect my reading, I had to go back and forth to analyze the script, the voices and the mood of the presentations in the pages of this book.
The Conversation of Venusta reminds me of the same inspiration I got from some readings of the sages of Navanah. Be reminded I have mentioned inspiration and in no way do I imply that they are in the same league. I also want to believe that inspiration cannot be measured. To save the comparisons here, I will not mention the author, just to make him/ her proud that I mention his/her scripts in this review. Joybell has given a Divine painting to the human being. She has painted our inner thoughts and created two actually more than two shades of us all that we need to identify so that we can help others know the best of us if we so wish or show the worst of us to protect selves. The identification of these shades in our life paintings is what will bring us to full appreciation of selves. One will decide to stand like a wild flower or wait to be repainted on a wall or be sculptured into immortality.
We all die. Oh... We all sleep. No way; we all pass on into the other life. I do not know much about the subject but the little that I captured from the conversations made me grapple with the thoughts for farther research on the subject. Sorry that is my thought.
I now comprehend from The Conversation of Venusta that we work towards our legacy. We work towards our death and we ultimately determine whatever happens to us after we pass on into the other life.
The examples fused within the conversation do not keep it refreshing like aging wine but also like a cookie with coconut white- each bite melts with sweetness. The Artist Michelangelo comes alive as he creates life in his sculptures, the cats in give us real lessons of our interactions with nature but also with other species on the planet and our relations are as real as those we have with our own. The flowers, the wild flowers are so scented that I am drawn to the journey into the wilderness to look out for the actual flowers not to take them but to reflect on the conversation, the Serenity in Humanity, the beauty of a girl, the beauty of purity and the power of the word not the languages and search for wisdom all packed just to always keep me the reader wanting for more yet am restricted to a diet, yet I am humbled by the gracefulness of the narrative to keep me flipping to the next page expecting more than what is beyond the sleeves.
Please keep us wanting and never give up on those you love. My review is as a result of your love to me. Still wondering why you picked me out and I still wonder why I never said No to you.
If any is needed here, I was challenged by the fact that reality and myths are all stocked in the brain. And our choice or perceptions of anything is dependent on our levels of awareness and exposure. If we can believe in prophets of the past, and yet they were ordinary persons like us, if we believe in inventions and evolutions of realities like what we see in this same planet we have been on for our life time, with the same Divine or God we have always believed then we can be anything, and we can invent anything and we can evolve anything.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me…..Philippians 4:13New King James Version (NKJV)
