The Call of the Soul – A Path To Knowing Your True Self and Your Life’s Purpose by Aila Accad RN, MSN provides a brand new perspective on the thing we call the authentic self.

In an elemental way, Accad defines the soul which unfolds as the blueprint of life. The soul gives meaning to life. It is the center of our values, inner strength, will, basis of comparison and vision for the future.

The author explains that there are a number of chances each of us has for radical change. These changes can evolve during adolescence, at midlife or again in retirement.

Accad explains the role of the ego. The ego is present to protect the soul. The sense of the self is not logical but more in the nature of intuitive. The ego forms beliefs, a self image and a sense of personal worth or esteem. The ego protects the true identity and can be restructured during times of radical  change. e.g. a great depression or a renaissance

The author challenges us all of us to hear the call to a higher consciousness. In life, there is only one journey. That journey is going inside yourself to understand fully who you are.

The book discusses Carl Jung at length. Jung defined emotion as follows: “Emotion is the moment when steel meets flint and a spark is struck forth, for emotion is the chief source of consciousness. There is no change from darkness to light or from inertia to movement without emotion.”

The Call of the Soul – A Path To Knowing Your True Self and Your Life’s Purpose by Aila Accad RN, MSN is an important resource on finding out just who you are and what your destiny is in the finite amount of time each person has on this planet.
