Lifting the Wheel of Karma by Paul Magid Review & Giveaway *Tour

Joseph Connell is a gifted high school athlete from Montana, loved deeply by his family, yet tormented by nightmarish visions he can neither explain nor escape.  He believes the answer to what threatens to crush him can be found in the knowledge possessed by a mystical old wise man, who lives deep within the remote Himalayas of India.  If Joseph is ever to find the peace he so desperately seeks, he must get this wise old man to reveal what he truly knows, but that will not be easy...for this sage knows far more than he admits.

This impressive piece of fiction wouldn't let me stop reading.  Joseph's story is well-told and fascinating.  The characters are real and will touch your heart.  There is some real intensity stored in these pages, as well as wisdom just waiting for anyone willing to look for it.  Taking the religious aspect out of it, this story shows us some valuable life lessons.  Adding the religious aspect back in, it will take you on a spiritual journey that will force you to face yourself at your most vulnerable.  There's also a handy study guide at the end to aid in asking yourself questions or beginning a discussion.
ABOUT THE AUTHORPaul H. Magid started writing his debut novel, Lifting the Wheel of Karma, twenty-five years ago while still in high school. It took him so long to complete because he tried repeatedly to abandon it, but the work refused to be forsaken. Eventually he realized that sharing this story with the world was, in fact, his Dharma.
Along the way he has worked as a Wall Street financial analyst, a waiter (not a very good one), a Hollywood Agent Trainee, a real estate developer, a summer day camp director, an award winning screenwriter, and independent filmmaker—including his autobiographical film, A Life Unfinished, which screened in The Hamptons International Film Festival.

  7. Lifting the Wheel of Karma is a book that can change your life and the way you look at the world as a whole. It brings to light the interconnectedness of all life, something sacred and precious, that the majority of us cut ourselves off from. Lifting the Wheel of Karma teaches us, through Joseph's eyes, an ancient way of viewing the world and our place in it. Beautifully crafted and packing a powerful punch, Mr. Magid has written a novel that will bring you a sense of peace and fulfillment.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
