The Site was an engaging book for me. You see, I had just encountered my first class in “breathing, meditation and yoga” And so I found this book to tie right in line with “living in the now” and in thinking about things from our fee will; our spirit, without the restrictions put upon us from society. The author, Claudio Herrera is clearly a worldly scholar and I believe his intelligence in writing this book, is no less than the honor he deserves in helping the reader to remember the true meaning of life, in being responsible to one’s moral duty.
In The Site, the author takes you inside of a world, in which there is segregation of its in habitants, “The Blacks, The Yellows, The Others” . From within this world, he explores the defining of society by its title; it’s unwritten, though if sometimes written, moral code. These were described as different countries that were governed by a ruling class, formed by religious and political sectors.
It is in unraveling this “society “ that the author takes you to a point of mind. A strong thought process begins and you really begin to have “sight” of how our history has defined us. How our religious beliefs, our ethnic backround and teachings by our elders has shaped us into behaving how we do. Now, clearly most of us adults know this, but exploring this foundation and challenging us to live past our predisposed ideology, for me, is what this book was about.
I enjoyed this book. It is a heavy read that makes one ponder. Yet, it is not long and is quite a journey into our own minds and provides life lesson, history and hope for mankind.
