I’m Still Here

I’ve been very quiet lately as I’ve been having laptop problems. My regular laptop has ceased to be and I’m struggling through with an old one that is still running windows xp. As a result I have been late in publishing my latest little project, From Logic To Enlightenment as an eBook on Kindle. It has also been a bit of a performance producing two book trailers to coincide with the launch; so it’s all a bit hit and miss at the moment.

Anyway, I hope to be back to normal soon; in the meantime, here are the two book trailers for your enjoyment (comments would be appreciated) and links to where you can buy the paperback version in the US and UK. Also, as if you needed reminding, all royalties from online sales are being donated to The Cotswold Care Hospice. For more info please visit: http://cotswoldcare.org.uk

Logic - Updated Cover


An Update On The Update

Well I managed to finish the interior of my new booklet and submit the files, which got approved overnight. So today I was able to order the proof copy. It’s coming by rocket post from the USA so it should get to me by Friday! Once the paperback has been published I will format the file for Kindle, so we should be in business in plenty of time for Christmas.

Here is the updated cover (I decided to change the font), and don’t forget; 100% royalties from all online sales are being donated to The Cotswold Care Hospice. For more details of what goes on at Cotswold Care visit www.cotswoldcare.org.uk

An Update

Hi! Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet lately. I’ve had a major computer failure and am currently struggling along with an old and slow laptop. As a result I’ve had to cancel all my forthcoming broadcasts on Blog Talk Radio. There is one piece of good news however. I’m currently working on another project, which is near to completion. It’s a booklet called From Logic To Enlightenment.

 A delightful book of spiritual insights, miracles and revelations derived mainly from the author’s actual experiences.

!00% royalties from online sales are to be donated to Cotswold Care Hospice, which is where I work for three days of the week. I hope to be up and running as normal again soon. Thanks for hanging in there, and in the meantime take a look at my new cover below and leave your comments. I’d love to know what you think of it. See you soon!

The Secret Garden Of The Soul

Here is an extract from my latest project From Logic To Enlightenment, which is going to be a kindle-only booklet of spiritual inspiration, with 100% royalties being donated to Cotswold Care Hospice. I’m hoping to publish by the middle of November at the latest.

What we are all seeking is closer to us than our very skin, but most of us are still ignorant of this most basic of spiritual truths. The secret garden of the soul is within us. Yes, contained within us is a boundless ocean of love and bliss with unlimited possibilities. As we go through this life and become more and more aware of who we really are, we are able to access our “God-Self” more readily. Some people achieve this via spiritual practices such as meditation, but it is also possible to reach God by the action of selfless service. Swami, Sri Sathya Sai Baba once said that the easiest way to serve God is to serve your fellow human beings; because God is resident within the hearts of all beings, therefore to serve humankind is to serve God. When you serve the Divine you are taking steps towards Self-Realisation, because with every step you take towards God, God will take ten steps towards you.

We are here in this realm of matter simply to have physical experiences. The body is nothing more than a vehicle that gets us from A to B. It is impossible to die. Even the physical body does not die; it simply changes form and continues to exist. Anyone who does not believe this should understand, and I recap, that all is energy. There is nothing that is not energy. You can neither create nor destroy energy; it is eternal. When the life-force leaves at so-called death, the body reverts back to inanimate matter. If you bury a physical body, over time it will break down or decompose, and merge once again with the earth. If you cremate a physical form, the cremation process causes the body to evolve into heat energy, which in turn is absorbed back into the total energy mass. So, the body does not die; in fact death is mythical and only exists in the mind.

DivineeeThe soul is indeed a secret garden of unlimited possibilities. But before we go any further, I want to ask a question; are the soul and the spirit one and the same thing? My personal view on this is that like everything else in this realm of the relative, the answer is paradoxical. In other words, yes they are and no they are not. Like the perfect Divine dichotomy, both answers are true. The way I see it is like this, at our deepest and purest level of being we are pure consciousness, which is the soul. At the first level of creation, where Divine thoughts start to materialize as form, we are spirit (energy). However, everything without exception is energy; there is nothing in any realm of existence, anywhere, which is not energy.  Therefore we can say that the soul and the spirit are not the same thing because one is pure consciousness and the other is energy, but on the other hand they are the same because consciousness is energy in its most subtle form. You could argue that it doesn’t really matter, but I threw it into the mix as a kind of food-for-thought exercise to kick-start this little series of thought provoking articles.
