The Unbound Soul by Richard Haight is about his experience in his journey and calling in life. The book was composed of four parts. The first part was about the writer's struggle with a learning disability when he was young, and a vision that became his life long quest. He fought with depression, and martial arts became his diversion and form of socialization. He found answers in places and experiences that helped him to understand things which he wanted to share with everyone.
Richard taught about meditation on the second part. There were detailed instructions and explanations on how to do it properly. He encourages it to be a part of one's daily life. The third part discussed ways to free one's self, or making your soul unbound. There were also discussions on how to take care of the body and how to be a good student. The fourth or last part was discussions about heaven, hell, karma, reincarnation, and unconditioned love. Pursuing his goal to spread love, peace, and harmony throughout the world, he shares his knowledge with the hope to reach everyone and entice change to every soul in the planet.
To truly enjoy and grasp the content of this book, one must have an open mind. We may have different faith and beliefs, but the discussions were somehow related to Buddhism and Hinduism which aims for the soul's enlightenment. It felt like a Western interpretation of topics on incarnations or reincarnation and alternative healing. I can recommend this book to people with an open mind, who seeks direction and clarity of life, and whose beliefs may parallel with that of the writer’s. But if you firmly believe in your faith or religion and would not accept anything beyond it, then this book is not for you.
The book belongs to non-fiction and self-help category. Part one was easier to read than the rest. It's well written, professionally edited and proofread. You will feel the honesty and sincerity of the writer on every page. He opened himself, was transparent in his deficiencies, struggles, and humanity. The result of his meditations and visions may be outrageous, but I'm convinced there's truth in it. With an open mind, we can see that every religion teaches that we should love and live accordingly so that someday we can be with God in all His glory. The book made it simple and uncomplicated. He explained how to be attuned and free without the intricacies of religion.
Some parts may be difficult to grasp, but the discussions made sense and can be helpful to someone. There may be some made-up terms, but definitions were given and explained. What I love most about this book are the writer's sincerity and openness. I give this book 4 out of 4 stars. If one will have an open mind, this book is a must-read. For people seeking peace, direction, and harmony, you may find the answers on the pages of this book.
