An invaluable text book for all who wish to learn more about their personal place in today's fast moving world.
Ease of purchase through Kindle/amazon: excellent. At time of purchase I was in an area notorious for poor reception, downloading and stable connection. The book downloaded within minutes.
Justine Hart has created the ideal text book for those people who want to take more than a hurried glance at where they stand in today’s world. You are gently but firmly encouraged to take a good look at yourself and your place in life; having done that, suggestions are made for taking action and making change.
The writer has the gift of humour, which she uses to illustrate different situations. She also has a penetrating understanding of today’s world, both the positive and negative issues. With no hint of despondency in her words, Justine Hart makes some very clear statements about the society we live in: which we have created, hoping to better ourselves. She is also amazingly practical, which I love.
Some of Justine’s words which I most enjoyed and appreciated are:
Just imagine a world with only priests and prophets, novices and nuns, ministers and saints and no one to attend to sanitation!
You have helped to create the day’s events; your participation will have made a difference.
Do not immediately make hasty assumptions on a particular mood and manner.
People seem to be working harder and longer, but are they creating something better?
It seems possible that soon we could be enmeshed (and floundering) into a fluctuating economy that dictates little personal thought and much spending of money! Is this not happening already?
Do we not all appreciate a clean house and delicious meal, so nice to come home to?
Consider for instance the tiny invisible sparks and symbols of enthusiasm, excitement and laughter. They are very contagious and will zip, sparkle and spread through the air very easily and quickly.
It feels as though we have our freedom and independence, but do we really have full control of this ever expanding monetary need? Could this be another time of servitude and dominance?
There are more concerns; is all this easily bought merchandise and produce conducive to our good health? There is the frightening possibility that everything that we need to buy will soon be doused and doctored with chemicals, preservatives and colorants. We are only just discovering the many harmful effects.
Justine illustrates many of her points with entertaining yet serious anecdotes. We have the story about anger going down the line: it starts with the boss in his office and ends with the poor cat getting a rough time. There is the tale about missed opportunity and the different coloured boxes tied with different coloured ribbons.
There is themandatory mobile mania: (what a grand piece of alliteration) We will shop, eat, drink, arrange for a plumber, check the emails, take a conference call and sell a new project all in the blink of an eye. Or was it our lunch break?
The Gift of Originality is an invaluable text book suited to many people. Whether you question your role in today’s world or whether you wish to argue with some of Justine’s points, The Gift of Originality makes an exciting and intelligent read.

Anyone wishing for a greater insight into a personal life including all of its potential and possibilities in this modern Age should read this book. Written in a relaxed easy style it is a practical guide at how to reach a higher personal potential through connecting up with the inner resource; The Original Gift.
Our originality and creative expression, as discussed by Justine can be held back through faulty reasoning or inconspicuous blockages; brought on as a matter of course or by design. Many ideas are presented as to how a personal reality may be created; what is important, what is not? To each their own consideration and discernment, this is the way it must be.
Chapters like; “The Law of Nature, Opportunity and Potential” and “Who are you?” are sure to expand consciousness and awareness. There are areas where a personal credibility may be stretched; such as in the chapter of “Who is to blame?”; where the possibility of God is discussed, or “Death and Thereafter”; where a transmutation process is proposed. In the last Chapter; “Health, Wealth and Stealth” the long term implications of a current world reality are looked at. These are the words that belong to everyone and must be in everyone’s interest!
I liked the book because of its weighty transformative power. There is no denying, that if the private exercises at the end of each chapter are followed up there will be a greater awareness and higher consciousness for the reader. The book is a combination of philosophy and reality, spirituality and practicality, offering a sensible and inspirational approach for personal happiness. It is a book that needs to be read with an open mind, some ideas will certainly surprise you, such as the simplicity of abundance! I recommend that you read The Original Gift.
