Throughout the Unscribbling book, you will find Spiritual Side Notes (SSN) as well as some extra links to bonus material. Below you will find a list of the writings that go along with the various parts of the book. As I will repeatedly state, you DO NOT need to have the same spiritual beliefs as me (or any) in order to learn how to Unscribble. Here’s the reason for the notes: throughout the writing of this book, I kept having the urge to interject a few spiritual thoughts or share some great quotes I have found on the subject. So this is where and how I have chosen to share those thoughts. Click here to learn more about how the book is NOT spiritual. So you don’t have to read the notes if they’re not for you; but for the spiritually minded among you, I look forward to both sharing and learning & expanding my thoughts through your comments on the following spiritual side notes.
I’ll warn you, I have used quite a few quotes from some great minds in these posts, but hopefully once you read them you will understand why I felt the urge to share them with you. ;o)
Here are the Spiritual Side Notes that are currently posted:
