Love and Devotion is a four-book nonfiction series. To find the great Love, we must, one way or another, die the great death. Once that death is conquered, we won’t have to die again. There is a grand and magnificent truth which radiates from within all of life and each of us. May you discover in your heart a sweet lightness, the luminescent glow of God’s beauty, and a true appreciation of the wonderful gift of life which glows unmarred through every human error. We are loved by the Divine, loved into existence. That, in itself, is enough to reassure each one of us of our inestimable worth.
The first book, in the series, is The Love of Being Loving. It is about the earlier adult years of my spiritual development. Dr Thomas Hora (Metapsychiatry) and Mary Baker Eddy (Christian Science) were the most significant influences on my spiritual path during my twenties and thirties.
The second book is The Love of Devotion. In my forties, I started reading a series of metaphysical books by Dr David R. Hawkins. I realised that they were having a potent impact on my growth and Dr Hawkins became my next spiritual teacher. Dr Hawkins (Devotional Nonduality) and Dr Hora came from very similar spiritual and intellectual terrain. We are drawn to a certain field of truth which resonates with our inner leanings. My interest in understanding thought drew me to teachers who also had a deep interest in human consciousness.
The third book is Love’s Longing. Somewhere along the way, there develops within the soul a yearning that can no longer be ignored; a craving for the great Love affair.
The fourth book is Touched by Love which is a collection of articles, stories, and meditations on our body, our relationships, and the spiritual path. It is vital to maintain, understand, and balance each of them. We must strengthen, expand, and extend all the energetic systems of our being. It takes work and commitment, but that is the purpose of life.
The Creative Spirit Series is a 3-book nonfiction series. The books are more meditations and personal thoughts on the creative process than how-to-do books. We don’t have desires by accident. Good desires are planted in us because we are meant to follow them, explore them, wrestle with them, and have them form us. If we do this, and do it in the right way, the result is happiness. If we do anything in the right way, the result is happiness. The first book, of the series, is Dance: A Spiritual Affair. The second book is Writing: A Spiritual Voice. The third book is Strange Words: Poems and Prayers.
