Death is the greatest invention of life. I’m sure that life evolved without death at first and found that without death, life didn’t work very well…” —Steve Jobs 
What was Steve Jobs’ spiritual philosophy? Is it true that the technological genius behind the Macintosh/Apple computer brands had a profoundly spiritual side that many do not realize? Steve Jobs quotes like the one above only just begin to describe the spiritual philosophy of Steve Jobs.
Author, Cristina Corban paints an uplifting and inspiration gem with her e-book entitled, Steve Jobs and I: Law of Attraction’s Perspective.” This book has the heart of a biography—about Steve Jobs, the soul of a autobiography—about the author, as well as the physique of an inspirational text—about what is possible in the lives of all that possess a vision with the dedication to achieve their goals, and pursue their heart’s desires.
While this book has the overtone of a biography of Steve Jobs, his story seems to harmoniously intertwine with the contrasting life of the author—who lived a childhood that—on the surface—seems to differ greatly from that of Jobs. The life stories of the two are unified by one common factor: “The Law of Attraction.”
While the Law of Attraction has obtained the notoriety of a newly discovered concept, it is a fundamental law that is said to go back as far as creation itself. The self-help undertone of “Steve Jobs and I: Law of Attraction’s Perspective,” is delivered in a unique and engaging way uncommon for books on this spiritual law. This book illustrates clearly for the reader how powerful focus and intent can change lives, no matter what situation a person is faced with.

Having been born under a dictatorship in Romania, Cristina Corban shows how her perseverance to achieve against the odds—having become a Geophysical Engineer and inspirational professional, while having grown up in a seemingly hopeless political climate.
In the passage below, Corban draws a graphic image of her early life:
I came into this world in a different setting: born during a dictatorship, in a
communist country, with a lack of material things (sometimes very basic things
were out of reach and one had to stay in line for hours to get
some for their family), a TV program for two hours a day with our beloved
president Ceausescu (kidding here) and so on. That actually increased my
desire for freedom, my quest in spirituality, as I hoped to find freedom
regardless of the circumstances and it made a very avid reader out of me.”

Corban also explores the deeper, spiritual, and less discussed facet of Steve Job’s persona, and how it is a reflection of her own spiritual perspective.
Excerpts like the following one—about Jobs’ encounter with a Guru on an early journey to India—demonstrate the spirituality of Steve Jobs in a humorous, yet enlightening way:
…I stumble in for something to eat and he’s dragging me up this mountain path.
We get to the top of this mountain half an hour later and there’s this little well
and pond at the top of this mountain, and he dunks my head in the water and pulls
out a razor from his pocket and starts to shave my head. I’m completely stunned.
I’m 19 years old, in a foreign country, up in the Himalayas, and here is this bizarre
Indian baba who has just dragged me away from the rest of the crowd, shaving
my head atop this mountain peak. I’m still not sure why he did it.”
(Steve Jobs and I, pg. 53)
The lives of Steve Jobs and the author seem to connect with their early interest and enlightenment by way of Eastern philosophies. The author describes her early enlightenment as follows:
As a student in medicine, one of the courses was sport, and you could choose
between different types: handball, aerobics, football, but also yoga. I was very
happy for the opportunity to go into yoga. The Guru came to our amphitheater
and gave us a lecture.
I was interested in yoga from high school, during Ceausescu’s era, when the
books were copied and distributed “illegally”. When I became a student, after
revolution (I was a rebel myself), I dived into studying Mircea Eliade on religion
history as well as any book I could find about yoga.”
(Steve Jobs and I, pg.75)
While reading “Steve Jobs and I: Law of Attraction’s Perspective,” the reader cannot help but find a whole new level of appreciation for Steve Jobs as a spiritual man. Like the author, Jobs worked and excelled in a technically-based industrial sector, while holding strong spiritual principles. This book does a magnificent job at balancing out the various aspects that make up the moral fabric of the text.
Overall, “Steve Jobs and I: Law of Attraction’s Perspective is written with passion, inspiration, and an undeniable respect and admiration for the life and accomplishments of Mr. Jobs. Adversely, this book is also a testament to the resilience and brilliance of the author.
