Every aspect of what we call spirituality is examined, from the nature of God, life, and knowledge to human purpose, human destiny, and religion. It's an all-encompassing cosmology, demanding concentration and committed study, yet it has the potential for life-changing impact, intended "for those who have not found their spiritual home in the religious traditions of this world...and essential for anyone who feels the great change that is coming." -- NAPRA ReView BEA 1998
From the Author
As the recipient and writer of this book and of the other books of The Greater Community Way, I feel that it is my responsibility to introduce this revealed Teaching and the Tradition that it represents as purely as possible, just as it has been revealed to me. In doing so, it is my sincere desire to represent the greater spiritual association that serves everyone in manifest life throughout the Greater Community.
I am not merely the scribe in this great undertaking. This Teaching and all that it contains is the product of my relationship with the Unseen Ones and the allies of humanity. To represent and to fulfill these relationships, it was necessary for me to become the first student of this Teaching, traveling a journey that perhaps few in our world have ever taken before. Strangely, since childhood I have been endowed with a body of information about life in the Greater Community. It is not the result of my reading or personal interests. It is simply there. It has always been there, troubling me, inspiring me, pushing me and moving me forward where no road seemed to go, yet always with a sense of an abiding and gracious spiritual presence. Greater Community Spirituality is the result of this inexplicable journey.
For you who can read this book and comprehend its deeper meaning and the great strength that it speaks for and advocates, I offer my encouragement. You are at the beginning of a great and mysterious journey, a journey into a larger universe and a deeper experience of the Divine in your own life. This book will be a gateway for you and for others who know that they are part of a greater life.
It is a blessing for me to share with you Greater Spirituality and to invite you to step beyond the limits of human awareness and understanding into a greater physical and spiritual universe called the Greater Community. As you are about to witness, our education about our life, meaning and spirituality is at a new beginning.
