Scientist Russell Targ and spiritual healer Jane Katra (Miracles of Mind
) join forces again, successfully blending their fascinating research and insights on life and spirit. On the surface, this book is a profound and intelligent discussion of where mysticism and parapsychological science intersect. But at its core, this is a tender book about living a life of peace and feeling connected to universal love. In the opening chapters, the authors address the illusion that we are separate from other beings--one that has tainted our scientific and spiritual models for decades. From here the authors move into scientific evidence for mind-to-mind and spirit-to-spirit connections and how to experience this "oneness" (or, as the title suggests, how to experience God) through freeing the heart and quieting the mind.
Their most groundbreaking chapter is "Why Scientists Pray," in which the authors challenge the stereotype of the cold, unfeeling scientist and show us just how dedicated and spiritual the heart of a scientist can truly be. This is an especially supportive book for contemporary scientists who are trying to break out of the current mold and create a more mystical and intuitive approach to inquiry. --Gail Hudson
