This autobiographical novel offers a journey through music, theater, gibberish, meditation, Judaism, esotericism, and rare religious practices. It tells how the vibrations of words can influence body and mind.
As an old man tells his memoirs to his nephew, a university student, he expresses how his travels to India and Israel shaped his thinking.
The theme of vibrations starts with the rattling of windowpanes in the old man’s house when his truck was running. Later, the uncle hears how the strings of musical instruments can vibrate, even though untouched. In India, the uncle discovers that vibrations of music and mantras have healing powers. In Israel, he learns the core of the vibrations of words: Positive and negative vibrations depend on the quality of words. Good words produce favorable situations and a happy life; bad and harmful words cause bad situations.
The author’s previous books are Travels of the Mind and A Hidden Sicilian History. This is the second edition of The Vibrations of Words. A Goodreads reviewer wrote of The Vibrations of Words: “…this book opened my mind to a new level. I don't quite remember how I stumbled upon this book, but I am forever grateful that I did, because it left me feeling differently in my heart, and with a different mindset. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys books on spirituality, religion, and self-development.”
