by Doug Peters

Book Image Not Available
Overview
In 1980, Doug Peters experienced an out-of-body, near-death experience, and began to write spiritual inspirational poetry. Children Of The Light is the second in the series of his 9 poetry books, collectively entitled, Poetry Of Time And Conscience. While on a hospital emergency room bed his consciousness rose to become one with the light above him, where warmth, love and kindness enveloped him. With a presence in the light, and another within himself, his earthly cares lightened and he was filled with spiritual communication and understanding of the nature of life, death, existence, purpose, etc. Ever since that moment he has been compelled, through the Holy Spirit, to put to paper his observations relating common earthly existence to spiritually related meaning. He spent the next 30 years writing the 9 self-published books of poetry, mainly on the back of bus transfers while in operation of city transit vehicles, as his observations of people and everyday life were considered.
Description
In 1980, Doug Peters experienced an out-of-body, near-death experience, and began to write spiritual inspirational poetry. Children Of The Light is the second in the series of his 9 poetry books, collectively entitled, Poetry Of Time And Conscience. While on a hospital emergency room bed his consciousness rose to become one with the light above him, where warmth, love and kindness enveloped him. With a presence in the light, and another within himself, his earthly cares lightened and he was filled with spiritual communication and understanding of the nature of life, death, existence, purpose, etc. Ever since that moment he has been compelled, through the Holy Spirit, to put to paper his observations relating common earthly existence to spiritually related meaning. He spent the next 30 years writing the 9 self-published books of poetry, mainly on the back of bus transfers while in operation of city transit vehicles, as his observations of people and everyday life were considered. The name, Children Of The Light, is derived from the perception of "oneness" with The Light experienced during his vision, coupled with the understanding that all come from The Light and all shall, one day, return back to it. The book, as do all of his books, touches on many shared themes of human existence, relating temporal earthly experience to the eternal through such concepts as time, change, love, existence, faith, spiritual connection, inward reflection, choices, meaning of life and death, purpose, etc. These all are considered within a broad range of topics, varying their mixtures within short poems whose common undercurrent is how Truth and Time form Conscience in the presence of Self-Awareness. Whereas the book is written from a predominantly Christian perspective, it nonetheless offers spiritual insight relating to other philosophical beliefs that are based on common universal themes. It is written with simplicity, clarity and depth, and speaks to the reader in the style of a conversation that can be followed easily through the commonality shared by many. Most of the poetry in this book is in various forms of rhyme with occasional prose throughout. It is introspective with its inward reflection and relates one's inner-workings of spirit to the application of one's personal belief to the outside world, both as an instrument of change and as an accepted part of the shared commonality. It challenges the reader to reappraise their existing stance on some subjects and may help reaffirm others while it offers its conceptions and conscience as spiritual considerations for thought. It also offers unique thought-provoking stimulus which is sure to maintain the attention of the reader through its lyrical positioning of spiritual variables.
