Love Bade Me Welcome May 4, 2006
Love Bade Me Welcome is an extemely honest and interesting story of a painter and her spiritual connection with God in human form in our time, Meher Baba. I could hardly put it down!
An "Ordinary" Soul's Meeting with God Apr 25, 2006
I feel this book is very valuable for present and future souls searching for recognition of their right and opportunity to God. I consider Phyllis Ott to be much more than an "ordinary" human female but she writes of her own conflicts of being an ordinary woman on her spiritual path. Her journey is real and with contemporary conflicts that I could relate to which validated my own spiritual path and significance.
Full of intense longing and love for God, Ott's life is moving and inspirational. She lives for God through her work as a painter and so much more. Her chosen life of poverty is profound and a beneficial example of how to live in the world but not be of it. Her own "phyllisophia" and poetry is enlightening and heartfelt. I recommend this book for everyone spiritually inclined and for anyone looking for a good read, from someone who enjoyed it very much.
