Universe-ity:A Spiritual Education Using the Law of Attraction by Michael Samuels is an engaging book on how to live a fuller life by shedding historic negations that stress people unnecessarily. A key premise of the author is that successful people persevere until they live life on their own terms doing the things they enjoy.

Samuels cites a whole host of people who are successful beyond imagination yet they didn’t finish high school. The author encourages people to create success lists which enumerate mistakes and the lessons learned. The author provides a list of 365 different things to do including, being a wine connoisseur and Zen master.

Samuels recommends that readers live for and enjoy the present instead of wallowing in the past. According to the author, a focus on the past halts today’s progress, as well as the process of enjoyment now. Conversely, living for the future anticipates happiness at a future date which may never arrive.

One of the most important things a person can do according to the author is to forgive others. Forgiveness provides a psychological release which frees us to focus more positively on accomplishing things now. Holding grudges only serves to deprive us of emotional well-being which may contribute to illness and breakdowns at the cellular level.

Universe-ity is an important book which seeks to engender positive attitudes in order to promote inner well being. The author provides an exhaustive list of books in order to cement the ideas first introduced in his book. The presentation is easy to understand for a wide audience.
