Remarkably, there is a huge body of evidence. If people had the time to study the same materials I did, I am confident they would come to a similar conclusion—there’s far more to reality than we think. Wiser people before me have discovered these truths. Greek philosophers called it “Theosophia” or “divine wisdom.” It has been referred to as “the perennial philosophy”, “the great tradition’ and “the wisdom of the ages”. For thousands of years, this knowledge has been passed on through various spiritual disciplines, secret religious societies, and esoteric writings. Some have discovered it through scientific inquiry into natural and metaphysical phenomena. Others have found this knowledge through revelatory experience or “gnosis,” which means directly experienced spiritual knowledge. In recent years, the study of psychology and physics have provided us with greater understanding, and proof, as science comes full circle with the “esoteric science”, of this wisdom of the ages. That’s where the good news begins.
At the root of this wisdom is the essential experience commonly referred to as “enlightenment.” Amazing as it might seem, enlightenment is actually simple. It just Is.
Wait, “If it just ‘Is’, how come I’m not experiencing it?” Well, it does take some doing (actually it takes some “being”, which involves making an effort to remember to choose. Some have described this as an “effortless effort”…. but I’m getting ahead of myself.
For me, it’s all about providing information that can help people. The divine wisdom joined with the psychology of spiritual growth has the potential to significantly help people cope with fear and obtain what they desire in life. Access to this knowledge should not be limited only to spiritual masters and those with sufficient time to read and study such a large volume of information. Until now, no one has gathered all of this information and presented it in a concise, easy-to-read format. This book is intended to provide a quick, contemporary synthesis of the basics of this ageless wisdom and psycho-spiritual fundamentals, with the goal of helping to alleviate some of the suffering that is so prevalent on this planet.
