Book Review, "The Return of the Children of Light: Incan and Mayan Prophecies for a New World"

We are please to have a guest book review written by Mind Body Spirit Marketplace member Christina Dudley of Capricorn Soap Company.  Thank you very much Christina!  Sounds like a good read!
What does our future look like?  Are we progressing toward new horizons in our evolutionary process? Or are we regressing to a more base and debauched state, becoming a more primitive and darkened mankind?  These are the questions we need ask ourselves, especially if we are seekers of the Mysteries of Life.  These questions are brought to light and perhaps even answered by Judith Bluestone Polich in her work "The Return of the Children of Light:  Incan and Mayan Prophecies for a New World".

The book begins by telling the story of an Incan priestess and her fictional journey through the levels of priesthood, mirroring the historic renderings of what modern archaeologists believe were referred to as the Virgins of the Sun.  As we follow the story of the progression her enlightenment, Polich provides us with a rich array of background and historical data while at the same time entertaining and uplifting us.  The reader is easily drawn into the text.  By the time he or she has finished reading the brief fictional narrative, the remainder of the story beckons like a great mystery to solved.

Polich’s next task is to make the reader ask the questions: What does our future look like? And, exactly where are we headed?  Polich describes her own experience with the spiritual realms, taking into account a broad readership with Judeo-Christian upbringing.  She describes her own epiphanies and awakenings and provides detailed references from a variety of spiritual canons to back up her claim   that we are approaching a new day, a new age, and a new moment, wherein we will either claim our heritage as sons and daughters of the great light, or we will deny it  - the choice is ours alone to make.

This text was a delight to read and its relevancy is unquestionable for our time.  Not only is it entertaining, with its brief fictional narrative and personal anecdotes from Polich herself, but it demands the reader ask herself or himself the question:  what choice will I make?   "
