Windows to the Soul: A Little Book of Wisdoms
Mystics of the World
Paperback 216 pgs
Available March 1, 2021
Mystics of the World is proud to present an unusual and beautiful new publication—Windows to the Soul, a little book of wisdoms. This small book defies any characterization of genre within the realm of books on truth or spirituality. For that reason, it is as accessible as it is illuminating. The inspired wisdoms within are not so much meant to comfort as to refresh and revitalize and upend any and all perceptions about what the journey to awareness is. Windows to the Soul is a collection of revelations the author experienced over a period of many years. The author writes, “I simply wrote them down when they arose. Each one accompanied an often huge inner shift and awareness in my consciousness and my living. Each one has changed me beyond recognition. They are, in fact, who I am and who I continue to become.” These wisdoms are meant to be pondered and experienced, slowly. One at a time. They create questions rather than answer them. They are openings into the reader’s own spaciousness.“…Who I continue to become…” These words are not one person’s words but describe a universal, pristine truth that there is no static “enlightenment” to reach. The wisdoms in this quiet gem mirror to readers their own revelations, those shifts that arise moment by moment, often unrecognized. We warmly invite you to enjoy Windows to the Soul. In it you will recognize your own adventure of living and being.
Review by Maria Okorn, SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH
“… Illuminating, contemplative, and intensely meditative, the text offers numerous “wisdoms”, varying from affirmations to mantras to challenges. It is the challenges in particular that inspire readers to shed any former conceptions about themselves, others, and the world and to just accept and be aware of what is. These revelations are designed to instill more questioning and exploration into our own individual spiritual awakening instead of providing specific answers. Such exploration will “encourage the spiritual practice of going beyond thought to establish what is true and what is not” for those who are open to them.”

Yvonne Banks-Martin started her life journey spending many hours every day sitting in silence. This led to inner stillness becoming her natural state of being, and she continues to teach its essence to many who have come upon her work. Over decades she has transcribed her inner process, mapping the shifts in consciousness, and giving language to the indescribable. This has given way to thousands of wisdoms, but only later on, in 2010, did it become her practice to publish them daily. She considers herself lucky to call several places home in Europe, India, and Australia where she currently lives.
