Essay on seven steps to heaven
Seven Steps to Heaven by Fred Khumalo*3 and a half stars*
Another university course book. I battled to connect with this book and its characters at first - in hindsight this feeling of disconnect may have been what Khumalo was aiming for at the outset. Persistence on the part of the reader is, however, rewarded by the remaining two-thirds of the book. Seven Steps to Heaven is a thought-provoking read that challenges ideas of identity and friendship.
Note: the back cover blurb for the book is completely misleading and does not help when faced with the disorder of the beginning of the book.

There is an innate desire for most of us to have a sense of internal connection to peace that some may call heaven. This article attempts to explain what it means to have or walk toward this state of peacefulness and profound spirituality. In this articled, I will use Maslow's hierarchy of needs as the foundation of explaining seven steps for walking through a sense of profound spirituality. Some of you may find it beneficial to have this foundation while walking through the ladder of profound spirituality. This article may also shed some light on helping individuals learn how to connect to a fully marvelous and content place within. But remember that this is a process and not a destination.
