Book Description

Awarded 5 Stars from ForeWord Reviews -


"Nothing gets one's attention like one's imminent demise," writes Gene O'Neil in An Upraised Chalice, a book that chronicles the remarkable travels, adventures and near-death experiences that have marked his quest to discover the meaning of life. O'Neil's practical insights, born of experience, cut across religious boundaries to convey a vibrant spirituality in plain, accessible language."




Do you consider yourself more spiritual than religious?




Many have turned away from traditional organized religions to explore their own relationship with the Divine. The author is one of these seekers and this book chronicles his remarkable journey to many of the world's sacred places. It is the inspiring story of a lifetime's quest for the ancient wisdom while experiencing miraculous intercessions of the Great Ones along the way.

<img src="//bit.ly/1prVetZ" algn="left"/>


This accounting differs form other stories detailing near-death experiences (NDEs). The author (a professional pilot, a builder, a teacher and a family man) had multiple near death encounters over the years. In one instance Archangel Michael appeared in a sphere of Light, commanding him to prepare with a specific prayer / mantra just moments before a fatal car accident. Immediately after this accident, going up the tunnel of Light to the other side, two Masters assisted with a specific action that allowed for the continuation of this lifetime.




This story details the lifelong chain of events that brought about these intercessions and the prior and subsequent interactions with the Great Ones that so shaped Gene's life. And there is a much deeper story here. A story that is vast in its implications and that contains a challenge to all who seek to know the truth - a story that helps to answer our greatest question: Why are we here?




    How the Laws of Karma play out in near-death experiences


    How the author created the conditions that enabled him to hear and see the warning from Archangel Michael and how these life-saving intercessions happened again and again over the years.


    How to choose a lifestyle that produces a healthy body - physical, mental and emotional - and a life of joy and purpose.


    How to awaken to the overwhelming majesty and love of the individualized I AM Presence within.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind! June 6, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An Upraised Chalice is a one-of-a-kind book that drew me in from the first lines of the first chapter. It is a true story of the extraordinary experiences of Gene O'Neil, who - in his early twenties - set off on a trek across the world to find the meaning of life. The adventure is engaging, and at times truly gripping, as the author maneuvers through various near death encounters along this journey. On occasion I had to take a deep breath and tell myself... "He lived to write this book so he is going to be okay!" Above all, it was his ability to trust that still small voice of the heart, that he recognized as his own I AM Presence, that made the greatest impact on me. O'Neil came face to face with death, financial ruin, and more, and held his equanimity through it all. I recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration to live in the present, be steadfast in daily spiritual practices, and open to discovering the very Presence of God within.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tour de force of self-discovery May 12, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A young man in the 1970's goes on a quest for a higher meaning to life. Driven from the materialism and claustrophobic dogmas of the West and drawn by the mysticism of the East, he travels through Jerusalem and on, by road, through Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan arriving in Nepal and the Himalayas. He finds himself in the foothills of Mt. Everest, at 18000ft altitude, many miles from shelter and warmth, struggling to recover from a fall into a crevasse as the sun sets, facing certain death if he cannot. Recovering from this experience and enriched by spiritual insights gained from his journey so far, he is eventually drawn to south eastern India where his relentless quest leads to new self-realization and inner awakening.
The author takes us on a tour de force of self-discovery, physical stamina, and a spiritual quest culminating in some extraordinary experiences in his later years. On the way we stop and share with him some of the sacredness of many of the holy sites and shrines he visits. He shares with us the fruit of this path of self discovery and some encouragement and signposts we too can benefit from on our own.
Hurrah for a remarkable story of one man's quest for spiritual enlightenment and for sharing it.

Format:Paperback
Stunning graphics, cover and inside photos. Inspiring life journey of inner and outer discovery. I an the editor of a health magazine and I excerpted Gene's book this month. This is my introduction: Periodically a book comes along that is capable of changing people’s minds about Reality. The just-released “An Upraised Chalice” is one such book. It chronicles the world travels and the inner and outer experiences of the author, Gene O’Neil, from Vermont. Gene includes all the stunning stories, miracles, and near-death experiences that have marked his life, told in an engaging style, filled with pictures taken along the way, and ringing of the truth of experience. With other such books, such as “Proof of Heaven” and “Heaven Is for Real” (now a movie), it seems the tide is turning for the mainstream’s acceptance of life after death. I’ve known Gene as a close personal friend for 30 years and proudly present a few excerpts and reviews from his book. (The cover art, available as a fine-art print, was painted by another great friend, Damian Gerard-Bland, from England.) To purchase Gene’s book in paper or eBook format, go to UpraisedChalice.com, or visit Amazon.com. —Enjoy! Editor

5.0 out of 5 stars Both captures and captivates the reader! June 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hold on to your hat- you're off on a riveting, high-spirited adventure of one man's unique and memorable spiritual quest! Gene' O 'Neil's book is a treasure, with his incredible near-death experiences, Himalayan and Indian escapades, and a story-telling style that both captures and captivates the reader in a very personal way. I have not read a book packed with so many unbelievable true-life stories as well as a spiritual wisdom that Gene's candidly shares from his heart. You will not want to put it down.
I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a higher understanding of life and an open mind to consider mysteries beyond the veil. Very enjoyable book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Wonderful Story May 25, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this book. It is an incredibly captivating and beautiful story of a spiritual journey that this author has been on. It is spiritually and emotionally uplifting, with a lot of very practical tools or ideas on how to create the life you want, how to become who you are meant to be, and helps to make sense of what the purpose of life truly is. I highly recommend this to anyone open to learning more about what it means to be alive on this planet at this time, and what you can to do make a difference in your own life and the life of others.
