Compensation by Emerson

My last few books by Napoleon Hill has referenced this essay. I was eager to read it for myself. It is a great read for the person seeking guidance from the universe.

Was recommended

There were some good one liners but for me it was alittle difficult to place. Maybe I’ll read it again it maybe better the second time around.

Good points

The book gave a lot of great points on the duality of life. It leaves room for personal reflection for growth and development.

An exposition of the laws of nature in you

Phil paonessa's narration breathes life into Emerson's writting on compensation. The content gives invaluable insights into the duality of nature and it's emutible laws to which we are all subject and bound whether we know it or not. Emerson's discourse on compensation is as relevant today as when it was first penned. highly recommended to to all who seek a richer understanding of inner workings of cause & effect in every thought and aspect of our lives.
