Book Review: Supermarket of Beliefs by Galia Koplis

Book synopsis:

In the period in which we are now living we are not sure what is right and what is wrong, we have been offered a new and original method to establish a private faith that will replace all the wars of religion in which (the people of) every religion and every belief, including scientific and atheistic beliefs, swear that their way is the best and the most truthful.
The book, “Supermarket of Beliefs” proposes that the removal of fragments from all the different religions and beliefs, including secular, religious, mysterious, and scientific beliefs; everything that each of them believes to be true and in this way establish an individual religion for each one.
The book contains the highlights of the major religions, monotheistic religions, eastern religions, ancient religions, mysticism and ancient and modern philosophy. It proposes a new division of religions and beliefs, including secular and scientific beliefs, according to the energies and the symbols associated with them.
It also recommends ways to sort out and re-attach them so that each person can assemble the faith that suits him or her.
This method might help the individual to form his or her beliefs thus completing them and helping them to feel at ease with themselves. This method might also help the society as it needs to be much more flexible due to the huge influence of beliefs, ideas and technology in its midst.
“Man can choose a cluster of icons as he sees fit, but in the end there is an energy that is his way, and it sets the main tone of his actions”.
Quotes from the book:
“The individual amasses great power when he connects all the pieces together, the spiritual energy, thought and logic, the symbol, the emotions, the creativity and the material …..”
The truth is divided into 11 types of energies:
Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Tao, Zen, contrasts and separation, mystical, rational – material (philosophy and science) and secularism.

In the future, “the individual will be able to assemble and build not only his or her faith but also symbols that in the past appeared to be impossible to change, like his or her personality, body and maybe age. The individual could, with the help of all the religions, the faiths and the practices, live within a dream that he molds for himself…..”

My review:

This was a fascinating book that explores different religions and beliefs of the world’s religions. It also explored the different energies of the world religions too.

The author, herself, is an atheist but that doesn’t stop her from writing a very well researched, very thought out book. Some of the religions that she explored were:

Hinduism

Taoism

Islam

Christianity

Judaism

Buddhism

Zen……among others.

Now, I am not a terribly religious person. But this book defiantely got me thinking about things.

I will be honest in saying that it isn’t an easy book to read. I had issues falling asleep while reading it. But once my attention was caught, it stayed caught.

Will I read this book again? Probably.

Will I reccomend this book to family and friends? Maybe

Age range: All ages.
