Lifting the Wheel of Karma by Paul H. Magid Review and Giveaway



Lifting the Wheel of Karma Book Summary
A Profound Spiritual Journey of Extraordinary Healing and Redemption

Joseph Connell is a gifted high school athlete from Montana, loved deeply by his family, yet tormented by nightmarish visions he can neither explain nor escape.

He believes the answer to what threatens to crush him can be found in the knowledge possessed by a mystical old wise man, who lives deep within the remote Himalayas of India.

If Joseph is ever to find the peace he so desperately seeks, he must get this wise old man to reveal what he truly knows, but that will not be easy…for this sage knows far more than he admits.

A modern tale that harkens back to the myths of antiquity. It takes you on a remarkable journey, while exploring the themes of healing, redemption, forgiveness, sacrifice, and ultimately...peace within.

Paul H. Magid's Bio:
Paul H. Magid started writing his debut novel, Lifting the Wheel of Karma, twenty-five years ago while still in high school. It took him so long to complete because he tried repeatedly to abandon it, but the work refused to be forsaken. Eventually he realized that sharing this story with the world was, in fact, his Dharma.

Along the way he has worked as a Wall Street financial analyst, a waiter (not a very good one), a Hollywood Agent Trainee, a real estate developer, a summer day camp director, an award winning screenwriter, and independent filmmaker—including his autobiographical film, A Life Unfinished, which screened in The Hamptons International Film Festival. 

My Thoughts:
Joseph has been tormented with nightmarish dreams for as long as he can remember. He desperately seeks release from these horrifying visions. When an accident puts him in a coma and with only one usuable limb, he despairs of never walking again, he is determined though so he seeks the advice and assistance of a man named Lahiri. Joseph travels to the Himilayans where he hopes to find the answers he seeks, while there he comes to love the land and stays for a period of time before he has to return home. This is a spiritual as well as healing journey that he undertakes.Finally his dreams are explained and he gains the wisdom he seeks.  I was very surprises as to where this book was headed and enjoyed it immensely.
