ABOUT THE BOOK
Living In-spirit attempts to answer questions about life. How did life become so complicated? How did our collective desire to have a meaningful life lead to such wanton global degradation and suffering? How have our best efforts at achieving a meaningful life resulted in such widespread unhappiness and disillusionment?
Living In-spirit explores the idea that we are spirits and therefore should live In-Spirit in our materially driven world. Many have shied away from the teachings of the spirit because they often come to us enshrouded in religious dogmas and dicta, which cloud the enormous human potential for attaining happiness and fulfillment. Simply stated, we are spirit-beings in transition in a physical and material medium through which we must navigate to fulfill our purpose.
Our spirits are indestructible and everlasting. We come from the Creator of all life and we return to that Creator in a never-ending cycle. We arrive at life in order to participate in the work of creation. This work is the sole purpose of our existence. Our life's success is therefore measured by the extent to which we participate in supporting and sustaining life in our universe. Every act we engage in must and should only be measured against a universal standard. That standard which is the basis of all moral and natural laws, measures the degree to which every action supports, enhances and promotes the life of humans, animals, vegetation, or our natural habitat. Any act that destroys does not enhance life and therefore falls short of meeting that universal standard.
Deftly constructed at 152 pages, Living In-Spirit is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Body, Mind & Spirit/ Growth category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Living In-Spirit can meet consumer demand through both retail and library markets.
