Earth is a School
By: William Wildblood - Axis Mundi Books, $18.85)
Description: Earth is a School presents the case for the material world as a spiritual school, specifically tailored to develop consciousness and bring the human soul closer to recognition of its divine source.
William Willdblood discusses how our planet serves as a training ground for the soul, with particular reference to the present time as one of decision and a kind of end of term examination. It can be hard to discern spiritual purpose behind the upheavals in many areas of contemporary life, but it is there if one knows how to look.
Verdict: Simply put, if Earth is a school, then there must be teachers all be these so-named teachers many might actually refer to as the ascended masters or gods who have graduated “The Earth School”.
Thus, William Wildblood’s new book Earth is a School vividly presents the case for the material world that we all live and breathe as a “spiritual school”, one specifically tailored to develop consciousness and bring the human soul closer to recognition of its divine source.
In what is a dedicatedly unique and wholly admirable read, Wildblood sets out his spiritual beliefs in a soft-natured, yet always nurturing, calmly tonal language that is all things interesting, engaging, at times derisive, and yet never bland nor uneasy to read.
Discussing along the way how our planet serves as a training ground for the soul, with particular reference to the present time as one of decision and a kind of end of term examination, Wildblood proposes that our apparently imperfect world is actually the ideal instrumental for perfection of human souls!
Furthermore, he suggests that it can be hard to discern spiritual purpose behind the upheavals in many areas of contemporary life, but it is there if one knows how to look.
In closing, Earth is a School delves into the aftermath of the devasting effects that 2020 left us all sheltering from, with Western Christians facing their toughest personal challenges to date.
It asks, amongst many, the question of How can the lone individual survive spiritually, when confronted by a worldwide materialistic bureaucracy determined to impose a system of inverted values?
That alone makes this a literal must-read for all interested parties, let alone all of us that are fearful for the future of not only ourselves, but our relative futures caught within the unheralded current state of urgency therein.
