Wisdom for Living as Spiritual Beings: How to Live Spiritually in Non-Spiritual Society by Tommy S.W. Wong is a spiritual classic, a book that will teach readers the secrets of living in a materially-minded world without losing touch with one’s spiritual experience. Through a form of intelligent dialogue, a style peculiar to masters of Eastern spiritual teachings, the author passes across a message that is as powerful as it is urgent for our times. In a society where spiritual values are quickly replaced by a selfish, consumerist culture, this book comes across as a powerful call to discover meaning by reconnecting with our spiritual selves.

Dr. Wong writes with moving simplicity, contextualizing his message by making allusions to current social, cultural, and economic realities. Wisdom for Living as Spiritual Beings: How to Live Spiritually in Non-Spiritual Society is a book that can be read very quickly because the style is simple, the language appealing, and the overall work thought-provoking; however, it will be important to pause to consider the subtleties of Wong’s writing. Simple statements could contain deep truths and the author knows how to use them.

It is interesting to see how the dialogue that runs through this book evolves, and how the student gains awareness. Reading Wong feels like taking part in an enlightening conversation with an experienced teacher. This is a classic book of wisdom that offers readers a proven path towards inner freedom and peace in a world filled with chaos and conflict. It’s highly recommended reading for those seeking peace and harmony with themselves.
