“Expecting to Fly: In Search Of The Spirit” by Patrick Sheridan is a book that I can never forget and I need to read it at least once again. It was very hard to put this book down. I am filled with awe about how Shri Mataji cleansed, nourished, comforted and guided the author.
Shri Mataji didn’t look at his personality or appearance but looked at his heart as he was a seeker and took him under her protection. She transformed him from a heavy 60s style drug addict who had abandoned his son to a loving family man who gave up all addictions and is leading a respectable, normal, happy life. This book should serve as a warning to anyone who seeks through drugs and/or any black magic. My favorite parts of the book are Patrick’s interactions with Shri Mataji. Also, it was inspiring to learn about the beginnings of Sahaja Yoga in London. There’s so much I learnt from this book that inspires my own spiritual journey. Above all, I love the transparency, that is, I love how the author has bared his life, thoughts and heart out without concern for being judged. I wish I had met the author when I was living in London.
