The Book Depository
A humorous, light-hearted, easy to read story about the thinking and actions that can result in you finding what you seek, at any age.
The main character in the book responds to a job vacancy for the position of Messiah/Messiahress, suspecting that it might be a recruitment campaign for a reality TV show. She goes for an interview at the Head Office and realises that it isn’t a spoof when she comes face to face with all the great prophets and philosophers who have made an impact on the world.
It is explained to her that she has to qualify for the job by undergoing a unique training programme. The training coach assigned to her is The Barefoot Indian who is extraordinarily beautiful, witty and wise. The Barefoot Indian guides her through challenges that she is given and is a constant source of inspiration on her journey.
The book’s heroine is transformed through the training. Amongst other things, she discovers beauty which cannot be found in a mirror; she learns how to ask and receive; she comes to understand the true nature of healing; she discovers that limitations are self imposed. And, finally, she realises that Messiah/Messiahress is what others call you, it is not what you call yourself.
“Do you have any more limitations you would like to place on yourself before we go?” she asked.
“What do you mean?” I asked once again.
“Well, I suggested that we do something today and you have spent all of your time coming up with obstacles which would have you believe that you cannot do what you want to do. All your thoughts are saying ‘I can’t because…’ You are trying to place limitations on the ‘Unlimited.’ Why?” she asked.
“I don’t know,” I replied “I hadn’t noticed that I was doing that.”
“You are like the ocean trying to squeeze itself into a one inch pipe and no matter how painful that is, you argue for the limitation. Why? Your vastness is apparent and knows no bounds, you are free to ebb and flow across the world, unchallenged and free,” she said.

The book is warm, funny, but altogether life changing. It teaches lessons that are infinitely valuable, on life itself and the nature of the cosmos and the ailments of the human race. It takes you on a journey of the human soul through the eyes of an average human being (you), one who has doubts, fears (financial and otherwise) and would like to change the world if given the opportunity but has most likely given up on mankind altogether. They are so many answers, and my old self is itching to show off and tell you some, but I am not able to. The book is one you must journey through and reflect upon by yourself. A touching and life changing read, The Barefoot Indian is definitely one to pick up the next time you visit your local bookstore. It is an easy and essential read for all ages.

Wow, here is a small easy to read book which should be in the rankings of the Celestine Prophecy and Surfing the Himalayas, if they grabbed your attention then this one will. One not to miss as if you do you will not have any idea what others are talking so enthusiastically about.
