Book Review Podcast
Jocelyn really enjoyed the book and found it to be amazing in many ways. Paul had an idea that if Jacqueline decided to rework the book, he thought that maybe a religion would form around the book. Jocelyn found that statement rather odd, but Paul said “the book is that profound and wonderful” that some folks might find it quite useful in guided them in their own lives. The book is about gratitude for thousands of right actions. This is what leads to a happy healthy colony that is able to split and spread it’s awesomeness to new places in the environment.
