This book is written by a fellow Truth seeker who laments the suffering caused by our stubborn spiritual ignorance. Its premise – we've lost touch with our souls. Its focus – what it takes to develop soul awareness and why this is important. It's a call to us to wise up and create peace instead of calamity.
The human body is an energetic vehicle for the expression of consciousness. It requires an identity which we create – an ego with a name. Because the ego focuses primarily on making sense of the outer world with which it must relate, it acquires the misperception that it is a standalone, mortal being. It confines its consciousness within a bubble of "me-ness". This makes it hard for us to sense the invisible web our consciousness shares with the whole of Life. Without this awareness, we don't fully know our purpose in Life and our sacred duty to it. Instead, the ego acts for itself, contributing to the perpetual "me vs them" human struggle. Suffering is inevitable. Spiritual practices such as meditation redirect one's attention inward. Within the inner domain of pure awareness, there is nothing to make sense of and everything to be. By repeatedly spending time in the infinite web, we gradually intuit our highest nature. We come to experience ourselves as soul-rays of the infinite light of Spirit.
This is esoteric stuff. To make sense of it, the author uses relatable stories. Through these, he expresses his peace-robbing concerns to Spirit and shares her uncompromising responses. This juxtaposition of human vs spiritual perspectives highlights the liberating benefits of choosing the latter. The stark contrast offers us a clear choice.
The book concludes with a twelve-point prescription for achieving the highest of life's goals, that which our world's spiritual Masters have done. If we pursue the Truth of our being with all our heart, we will be led to the specific path for God realization that best suits our inclinations. Our ultimate success occurs when we finally establish ourselves in the immortal consciousness of Peace.
