“The Path Made Clear: Discovering Your Life’s Direction and Purpose” by: Oprah Winfrey

It is not often that I get literal chills upon finishing a book. I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Oprah Winfrey herself as well as those whom speak during, and I gotta tell you…the way the epilogue ended? Chills.

There are universal truths that we can all relate to. We are all seeking something. We are all trying to find something. That truth, that knowing? It is (and always has been) within us.

God shows us when we stop to listen. When we stop to listen, God shows us. We use many different means and paths to get there. There are so many wise words and concepts included here. Winfrey navigated through and transitions between speakers so beautifully.

She shares her own failures and successes as well as expands on the ideas and themes of each chapter.

I would very highly recommend listening to the audio version so you can hear each person speaking their truth in their own voice. Many of those included were from interviews over the years and Winfrey introduces and compiles them in such an easy flow and grace that it is almost as if it were divinely inspired.

I came away from this feeling as if I touched upon something within. Something unlocked within. We let go of control; we trust.

We try to always seek, seek, seek outside of ourselves, but it truly is just so unbelievably simple.

Love is the ultimate truth. To love, to be loved, to show Christ-like love. It is all there already inside of us.

We block our own blessings.

We need to accept others before we can love them.

What a powerful and insightful work.

I still have chills thinking about this.

It is a short work, only 2 hours on audio, that if you allow it? Can change your life forever…because it is all up to you. ♡
