Altering the course of life via a book

Have you ever experienced sudden transformation even without doing anything? Almost like your regular day has become slightly different, something has changed, it definately has, but what exactly?

I was feeling this a year back,when I had finished reading a particular book. It’s almost as if I felt the book changed the course of my life. I’ve read so many books till date but I havent had this experience with any book .

When I finished the book, it felt like everything had become slightly different. I don’t know if it was my vision, but things that were clear became choas again. I quit my job and started to feel terrible about a whole lot of things. I throughoutly felt it was the book that changed things.

Thing became more clueless, the questions outnumbered the answers and the brain chatter grew louder than ever before. I kept thinking if it was the book, cause suddenly I felt like I was no longer in control of things.

I eventually found another job and I fell in love with my work. I found some amazing people that I still connect to and are like a family now.

I really don’t know if it was the vision or the book, even though I hadnt moved, things changed by leaps and bounds that when I look back I’m simply astounded by how books can actually change things or how going to a play puts meanings into perspective and suddenly the fog on your glass clears out and the vision is perfect.
